Blooms for Christmas


Meet "Blooms for Christmas".

I am using a beautiful stencil by A Colorful Life Designs called "Just a Bloom", and once again I decided to style it for Christmas, which is very easy to do.
My inks are Distress Oxide inks in Festive Berries and Lumberjack Plaid along with Delicata ink in Glitz Gold.

I really love the Clean and Simple look this stencil gives done in Christmas colours, and I love the glam the sequins add.
The sequins, some of which are clear and others being red, are from Buttons Galore and are called Holdiday Fest.

For the sentiment I am using glimmer hot foil dies from Spellbinders called Christmas Sentiments which have been foiled in red foil and attached using foam squares.

I also went over the gold centre with my gold glitter pen as I wanted there to be more sparkle in the centre.

There was still a lot of ink on my stencil, so for the inside of the card I spritzed the stencil with a fair amount of water and turned it over on a piece of 5.25 x 4.0 inch Hammermill cardstock, rubbing the stencil for a good transfer.

I then stamped the inside sentiment using VersaFine Clair ink in Tulip.

Thank you for joining me today.

See you next time.
