Hello crafters! Welcome to Week 18 of our AWH Heart of Christmas blog hop.
This week I finally used a bundle I’ve had for ages – I don’t know why it took me so long to open it up! The Tidings & Trimmings Bundle includes the Tidings & Trimmings Stamp Set and the Christmas Trimmings Dies. It’s on page 88 of the 2021-22 Annual Catalogue.
I love creating miniature scenes on cards and the lovely brick background you see on this card is actually a reject from the Christmas card I made for next Monday. I didn’t want to waste this embossed Crumb Cake background so I designed this entire card around it.
TIP: For a more realistic effect I swiped the inside of the Bricks & Mortar EF with my Crumb Cake ink pad BEFORE inserting the Crumb Cake card stock into the EF and running it through the cut’n’emboss machine.
The mantlepiece is simply a strip of In Good Taste DSP that I embossed using the Timber 3D embossing folder. I attached the mantelpiece to the brick chimney using Stampin’ dimensionals so it sits out like a real mantelpiece would.
The little holly leaves and berries decorating the stockings and the sentiment are also cut using the Christmas Trimmings Dies – I used Old Olive for the holly leaves and Real Red for the holly berries.
Now it’s time to hop on over to our next participant, the lovely Sharon Davern. I can’t wait to see what she shares with us today!
If at any time you find a broken link please head to the blog of this week’s host of The Heart Of Christmas Blog Hop, Tina Gillespie, and she will have the list of all those participating.
Thanks for visiting my site. I’ll be back with another card on Wednesday.
In the meantime, wherever you are in the world, stay safe, stay calm … and keep on crafting xxx
