#tgifc138 Theme Challenge – Christmas Carols
TGIF! It’s Time to be Inspired!
Welcome to another TGIF Challenge, this week it’s time for some inspiration! Christmas Carols! I went through my overwhelming amount of Stampin’ Up! product in search of something that contains music notes, and I came up empty handed….which NEVER happens. I guess I know what to purchase next time the Holiday Catalog comes around! I did find the ‘Joy to the World’ sentiment from the Hearts Come Home Bundle so I decided to go with it.
Card Base: Night of Navy Cardstock cut to 8 1/2 in. x 8 1/2 in. and scored at 4 1/4 in. to create a landscape style card.
2nd Layer: Gold Glimmer Paper cut to 3 3/4 in x 3 3/4 in. and adhered to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
3rd Layer: Watercolor Paper colored with my Aqua Painter and the following ink refills: Night of Navy, Berry Burst, and Dapper Denim.
Embellishments: Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder, Dazzling Diamonds
Stamps: Hearts Come Home Bundle from the 2017 Holiday Catalog
Ink: Versamark Pad, Night of Navy, Berry Burst, and Dapper Denim Ink Refills
Tools: Aqua Painter (large), Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush, Stampin’ Trimmer, Paper Snips, Clear Stamp Blocks A & E, Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Heat Tool, Big Shot, Magnetic Platform, Hometown Greetings Edglits Dies (part of the Hearts Come Home Bundle).
Since I was short on time for this post, I decided to keep the card similar to a previous design, just changed up a few elements. I used more colors in the background of my previous creation, I wanted to see if I could get similar results with fewer colors. I think this card is a little dark, but it helps for the shimmer to stand out more.
