Countdown to Christmas #2

It’s Friday again, which means it’s time for my next Countdown to Christmas project.

So, here’s Countdown to Christmas #2.

Countdown to Christmas #2. Project designed by Karen at HIPPOFROG Designs

If you’re a regular reader, you’ll know that I like simple, non-fussy projects, with a particular like of monochrome projects.

Countdown to Christmas #2 uses Mossy Meadow and Whisper White. It’s just one stamp set, one ink pad and one punch.

There’s obviously a few extras such as the co-ordinating ribbon, a Blender Pen and Wink of Stella. But, you don’t have to use these.

For this project, I stamped one of the baubles from the Christmas Gleaming Stamp Set multiple times in Mossy Meadow. This Stamp Set is a returning favourite from last year, and I’m pleased to see it back!

A top tip is to stamp where you want your focal image one to go, and then stamp the others round it a various angles.

These were coloured using a Blender Pen.

Then, after stamping another onto a separate sheet, the bauble is coloured and given some sparkle using Wink of Stella. You can’t see it very well in the picture, so you’ll have to take my word for it that is is rather sparkly!

This is then cut out using the co-ordinating punch from the  Gleaming Ornaments Punch Pack.

A length of the new Diagonal Stripe Ribbon from the August-December Mini Catalogue is looped and stuck to the back of the bauble.

The Merry Christmas sentiment from the Stamp Set is cut out by hand and stuck to the bauble.

Finally, the whole bauble piece is stuck over the original image using Dimensionals to make it the focus.

Using this technique, you can create a number of cards really quickly, and in lots of different colours.

Pop back next week for Countdown to Christmas #3.
