Christmas Collage

More Christmas cards for you {g} Don't you feel that as soon as Halloween is over we're in a headlong rush to get ready for Christmas? 

Here's my share for you today...I love this stamp set, well there are two of them and I love them both!  I know I always say it but seriously these are two of my favourite things!!  I used the Christmas Collage background set and the Bells and Boughs stamp set...isn't it pretty!

I stamped with Crumb Cake ink on Very Vanilla paper, then I stamped the bells on a Very Vanilla scrap and punched it out with the 1 3/4" punch.  Then I sponged the edges of the circle and adhered it on the background.  I added some homemade Champagne Shimmer Mist and spritzed the whole layer.  When it was dry I adhered it to the Crumb Cake base, added a cream organza bow and its done!  Simple and oh so pretty!

To make the Shimmer Mist, I filled a tiny spritz bottle with rubbing alcolol, about 3/4 full and then added a couple of good sized drops of Champagne Shimmer Paint.  Shake it up really good each time you use it.  I spritzed it inside a large cardboard box as there is some overspray.  The effect is totally awesome and so pretty in real life! If you click on the picture and then enlarge it, you might be able to see the shimmer!

Hope you like my Christmas share...thanks so much for stopping by!

  1. Judy, I have to say this is the most beautiful card I have seen done with this collage stamp. I didn't like the 25 on it, but bought it anyway because I am so addicted to stamps and collage anything, but I just didn't like the "coloring" of each little thing, so this has given me inspiration to use it now! Without color! hahaha Thanks for sharing your wonderful cards! Hugs, Donna
