Saturday Simple Stamping: #35 Christmas Gleaming

Hello and welcome to this weeks Saturday Simple Stamping Episode.  This week we are making a card using the Christmas Gleaming Stamp Set from the 2019 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog.  I decided to make a simple Christmas Card for you today using just stamps, ink, paper and the matching Gleaming Ornament Punches from this suite.  You will find this suite on pages 30 through 32.  You can get both the Christmas Gleaming Stamp Set and matching Gleaming Ornament Punches in a cost saving bundle when you order them using this item #153006.  Here's a look at today's project.

Tips & Tricks: 

For my card today I used a piece of Real Red Cardstock cut at 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2 as my card base.  I stamped the large ornament from the stamp set in Real Red ink all around the card base.  I then took a piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock and stamped the two large ornaments and the small in Crushed Curry, Garden Green, and Real Red ink around this piece to create the card front.  I added in the little dot textured stamp from the stamp set in the open spaces around the card.  I made sure that the ornaments where all staggered around the very vanilla card front.  That way it gives you visual interest on the card.   

Once I had that stamping done I added the very vanilla to the card front using Snail Adhesive.  I then added a strip of Real Red Cardstock that I made into a fish tail banner .  I stamped one of the large ornaments and one of the small and punched them out using the matching Gleaming ornament punches and popped them on my card with a couple dimensionals.  I then stamped the sentiment in Tuxedo black ink on a scrap of Real Red cardstock and trimmed it out using my snips.  Since this image has a bold outline and open lettering it allows the colors of the letters to be real red with the outline being black.
