This week at Hand Stamped Stamped Sentiments we have a theme challenge. Create any paper craft project with an old fashion Christmas theme. Looking through my stash I found some gold heart doilies and since recently I received the Hearts Collection Framelits Dies I was inspired! Perfect combo!
I used one of my favorite Christmas vintage stamp sets, Bells and Boughs. I stamped the poinsettia image on Very Vanilla with Versamark and heat embossed it in gold. I then die cut it using the heart die. It was so easy! The image is colored with a blender pen and ink pads and sponged with Soft Suede. I cut holly leaves in Always Artichoke and Old Olive using the Large Oval punch and 3/4″ circle punch to cut the sides. I used a stylus to score the leaf veins.
The berries are cut from Red Glimmer paper with the 1/2″ circle punch. So sparkly! I love this paper. I definitely need to get some more for Valentine’s. The small circles at the corners and on the sentiments were cut with the Owl Builder punch.
I hope you’re inspired to join us this week at Hand Stamped Sentiments.
All products are Stampin’ Up! unless noted.
