Welcome to week 7 of our Art With Heart, Heart of Christmas blog hop.
The stamp set I’ve used for this week’s Heart of Christmas project, Peaceful Noel, is such a beautiful stamp set and it comes with a matching punch called the sprig punch, that actually looks a lot like antlers!
I was going to use both the sprig punch and the Peaceful Noel stamp set for my card today but there was so much lovely detail in just the stamping on its own I decided to save the punch for another project.
The ink colours I used for this card were the same stunning colours used in the Joyous Noel Suite: Gray Granite, Merry Merlot, Sahara Sand, Soft Suede, Tranquil Tide and Whisper White.
I used the outline of a small oval as my stamping guideline to stamp around and I just randomly started stamping, adding different colours and patterns as I went along. I then decided to add some more dimension to the Merry Merlot berries by covering them with a layer of fine-tipped glue. I love how this makes them shine!
Speaking of shine…how beautiful is this Merry Merlot glimmer paper! I die cut it out on the Big Shot with a layering oval die, then layered the Noel sentiment on top, after cutting it out with a Stitched Shapes oval die.
The base of the card is simply a piece of Gray Granite cardstock. Despite my love of Crumb Cake I must admit this colour comes a pretty close second as a neutral that works with so many different colours.
To see what the rest of the team have made this week hop over to the lovely Claire Daly’s blog.
