Hello crafty friends, and welcome to the Altenew October 2018 Stamp/Die Release Blog Hop + Giveaway.
You should have arrived from the talented Norine‘s blog. Here is the full list for your convenience:
I went with a light and “snowy” page with pops of bright, traditional Christmas colors.
I started by stamping the baubles using a mix of Crisp Dye Inks in green and red tones. The variety of size and shapes in this set makes it a must have. I love the different options and possibilities, especially when it comes to having fun with color combinations.
Next, I created a circular design with the layered snowflakes. I die cut many of them from smooth white cardstock, and covered some with Nuvo Glimmer Paste in Moonstone color for added shine.
After placing the photo in the middle of the wreath, I adhered the baubles on both sides of it to create a frame. Foam dots were used here to bring in more dimension. I then stamped and heat-embossed the sentiment, which also comes in the Brilliant Baubles Set, on white cardstock; I matted it with black cardstock and arranged it on top of the photo. As a finishing touch, I added lots of soft pink enamel dots in the center of the snowflakes.
