Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop - Autumn/Winter & Holiday Catalogue

Hi Crafters,

The Global Stamping Friends are back with another great blog hop.  I hope you'll join us for this fun crafty trip around the globe.  Don't forget to comment so we know you've visited.  We are showcasing products from the new Stampin' Up! Autumn/Winter Catalogue and I can't wait to be inspired by the all the great projects.  

I've created a card that uses a traditional Christmas image but in non-traditional colours.  I chose to use the Peaceful Poinsettia bundle.  I was blown away by the amazing samples in the catalogue and couldn't wait to start playing - there will definitely be more to come!

I made a card blank from Rich Razzleberry cardstock and then adhered a piece of the Tea Room Specialty Designer Series Paper on top.  This paper is a tone on tone stripe in Calypso Coral.  I took a piece of Galvanized Metallic Paper and ran it through the Tin Tile Dynamic Textured Impression Embossing Folder which is an absolute favourite of mine.  I added a hint of Bright Copper Shimmer Paint, using more in some areas than others to give a vintage look.  You could use a sponge dauber for this but I prefer getting a little messy and just using my finger!  I stamped the Christmas Wishes sentiment in Calypso Coral and then layered this up using the Layering Oval Framelits Dies.  My focal image was heat embossed in Copper and then I applied ink using Aqua Painters straight from the Calypso Coral, Old Olive and Rich Razzleberry ink pads.  This is definitely my favourite way to colour and the heat embossed lines make it super quick and simple.  I used the co-ordinating die to cut out my poinsettia image and then adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals.  

I hope you've been inspired by my traditional/non-traditional make and have fun hopping.  Head over to Narelle's blog for more inspiration using the next arrow below.  If you get lost on the way, there is a full list of the blogs in the hop at the end of this post.  

Happy hopping!
