Stampin’ Up! Bells and Boughs

Hi Everyone, I feel guilty I haven’t stamped in a few days. I’ve been getting ready for a few workshops and a few workshops in a box…..but I’m here now…so I hope you like the little share I did today.

It’s featuring a set that will be coming out in the New Winter Mini due to hit your mailboxes by the end of the month.  So keep an eye open for it. If you don’t have a Demo and would like a ne Mini, let me know…..I’ll get one to you.

Here is my share….. Bells and Boughs 002 I stamped the image in Black Stazon as I intended to watercolor it with my Aqua Painter and Watercolor Pencils.  So I did….then I realized I wanted more vibrant REDS in the Poinsettia’s. So I ended up going back with my Markers and darkening some areas to my liking.

I honesty was going to try and use lots of color on this card and didn’t quite make it….you know me and my White and Vanilla. I’m hopeless, huh? Well I did add some dots in red around the image….hehe Does that count???

My little bow is done using my Magic Bow Maker and looping it around twice and tying. It’s that easy. You can find that on my sidebar if you are interested.

Well that’s it for today….I’ll see you back later with the Stamping 411 Challenge.

Have a Stampinglee Good Day!!!

Beautiful card, I love the embossed background and the red and white together are so elegant, love that beautiful box. I bought the bow maker and haven't tried it out yet. I'm going to remedy that tonight. Awesome work.

I love this card, it's just stunning...

And I want to thank you for the bow maker. I bought it and seems like I blinked and here it was. I can't tell you how many bow makers I've had in the past but they are all in the trash now. Your's is so simple to work and the bows are gorgeous.

thanks for sharing
