Bling Baubles

Here we are at the start of another week, and another week closer to Christmas! Where is the time going??

Today's card is for the Less is More Challenge where the subject is

This is my card

First I inked up the flourish with Versamark and then I masked off the edges to make a round shape, before stamping onto a white card.

I  then heat embossed the shape with gold powder ( sorry but my photo is not the best to show the gold), and repeated the process twice more ( placing the stamp by using the Stamp-a-ma-jig ). The sentiment was stamped in red across the top, and gold wiggly lines drawn to hang the baubles, and the finishing touches were the "bling gems".

I was pleased with my efforts until I drew the lines to hang the baubles, and then I realised that the right hand one is a little too close to the top one, but I couldn't do anything to disguise it, so just went with it.

Recipe: Card = from my stash
Stamps = Bliss and Dovecraft
Inks = Versamark and Real Red
Tools = Heat Gun and Stamp-a-ma-jig
Extras = Gold embossing powder, Gold Pilot marker, and gems

Thanks for dropping by, and please call again if you can.

  2. Oh, Bev!!! How fabulous is THIS?! LOVE the masking idea--and the multi-colored bling is perfect! :) LOVE IT!!!

  3. What a brilliant idea Bev.
    I often do some sort of baulble suspended form text. I have often done a row of liquid pearl dots it makes for a subtle look
    Super card
