WHEN YOU THINK OF CHRISTMAS - STAMPIN' UP! ARTISAN BLOG HOP

When you think of Christmas colours, do you typically think of Red, Green and Gold.  Or possibly Blue and Silver, which has become a favourite over the years?  With the August release of the Carols of Christmas stamp set and Card Front Builder Dies, I decided to go for a whole new Christmas colour scheme - Bold and Bright!


The Carols of Christmas stamp set and dies are the perfect way to get a head start on your Christmas projects, even if your project is a little out of left field like mine!  You can order these products as a bundle, saving 10%.  If your earned Bonus Coupons in July then you can get a further discount on these awesome products when you purchase in August!


I have created a watercolour background wash with two of this years In Colours - Lemon Lime Twist (of course!) and Berry Burst and combined them with Soft Sky to form a fluid background beneath the large sentiment.  That was one of the things that drew me to this set, the size of the sentiments!  You almost need nothing else to make your projects pop!  Of course, they look great teamed with some of the smaller stamps in the set like these baubles, which I have popped up on Mini Dimensionals.  Have I told you how in love with these mini's I am??!


Thankfully, I didn't have to fussy cut the tiny baubles, there is a die to help you with those too!  All this prettiness needed a bit of bling as well and the Iridescent Sequin Assortment was just perfect with lots of lovely colours to choose from and three different sizes of sequins - love that!
