Stampin' Up! 2019 Holiday Catalogue Art With Heart Team Blog Hop Week 5

Hello and welcome,

This is week 5 with the Art With Heart Team blog hop. The Stampin' Up! products that I've used is from the Itty Bitty Bundle combined with Black, White, Silver and a touch of sparkle. I wanted an elegant card using these colours and mediums.

I haven't used the White Embossing Paste with the Pattern Party Decorative Masks for awhile now and for my card, I've used the Diamond shape mask. Once the Paste has been applied to a piece of Whisper White Cardstock and I quickly sprinkled the Stampin' Glitter in Dazzling Diamonds onto the paste. You can either wait until it dries or heat set with the Heat Tool. 

The next layer I've used is a piece of Black Foil Sheet and the star Die from Christmas Layers Dies. I just love the Black Foil Sheets it can make your card shine like a black diamond. To continue with the Black Foil I punched out a Christmas Tree using the Pine Tree Punch and before adding the tree to the card, I've placed Silver Metallic Thread underneath it.

To finish off my card I've used the greeting from the Itty Bitty Christmas Stamp Set which coordinates with the Christmas Layers Dies. The Season's Greetings has been inked up in Versamark Ink, adding Black Stampin' Emboss Powder and heat set with the Heat Tool. The sentiment is layered over the tree with Stampin' Dimensionals.
