Stampin' for Christmas Blog Hop!


It's my first time hopping along with the Stampin' for Christmas blog hop today!

It doesn't matter if you are starting here or if you have arrived from Alison's blog - I'm thrilled that you have stopped by and wish you all a very warm welcome to my blog - Handmade by Kim

With only 21 days until Christmas, you are in the right place - you'll find lots of inspiration here today for your handmade Christmas projects created by papercrafters and demonstrators with a common love for all things Stampin' Up!. 


I had loads of fun getting inky with the Peace and Joy stamp set to create this card. 

To achieve this three colour stamped image I inked up the stamp directly from the ink pads. I started with the centre colour and then added the outer colours, being careful not to ruin my ink pads!

The colours I have used are Gorgeous Grape, Seaside Spray and Highland Heather.


These colours coordinate really well with the Snowflake Splendor DSP, which I have used for the background.

I've selected a Purple Posy card base with a Whisper White mat to go with the patterned paper. 


No, that's not glimmer paper, but it looks like it doesn't it? 

I added Shimmery White Embossing Paste to Whisper White cardstock! I let it dry thoroughly before die cutting the shape with the Joy dies.


To embellish my card I applied some Blue Adhesive Backed Gems and then added strips of the Snowflake Splendor Ribbon behind the centre piece. 

This ribbon is so beautifully iridescent and looks wonderful with these colours. I'm not very good at being random so in hindsight I think I may have added one too many strips?


I hope you've enjoyed my project today! You can subscribe to receive my blog posts by email hereIf you have the time I'd love you to leave me a comment to let me know you stopped by.
