 Hello and welcome to the December edition of the Stampin' For Christmas Blog Hop!  Grab youself a cuppa, get comfy and spend some time with myself and other Stampin' Up! Demonstrators for a spot of Christmas creativity!

For my project today, I am showcasing the gorgeous, and now reduced Delicate Baubles Dies that will only be available for a limited time while stocks last!  

I created all 3 cards shown in today's post during a recent Facebook Live Demonstration which is now available on my Youtube channel to watch back!

For the first card design, I have CASED from the August to December Mini Catalogue (checkout page 40!)

I have kept the colour palette nice and clean with just Shaded Spruce and Basic WhiteTo create the shadow around the edge, I have used a Blending Brush first with Shaded Spruce Ink and then Evening Evergreen Ink.  I love the highlight feature this technique adds to the centre of the card which is just perfect for using with the Delicate Baubles.  Once attached to the card front, I have added a splash of glitter from a Wink of Stella Pen for that added bit of Christmas sparkle!  

I have cut both baubles from Basic White Card and layered together before adding to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.  To finish, I have added layers of trim for that extra bit of texture!

For the next card, I have used the dies with a combination of patterned paper and card to create my bauble.  "Joy" has been cut from the Playful Alphabet Dies and added to a strip of Basic White Card that I have layered onto the bauble. 

The rest of the design has been kept super simple with a hand stamped sentiment and a doodle edge and it brings together a nice clean finished card. 

Last but not least, I have created a slimline card, this time with the snowflake detailed bauble die.  I wanted to create a soft look so I have cut the baubles out from Basic White Card, and added my colour with a Blending Brush.  These have then been layered onto Basic White baubles and arranged on the front of my card. 

I wanted to create a sentiment that made the card "pop" so I have used White Stampin' Emboss Powder on Basic Black Card, and finished with some black and white twine!

As mentioned earlier, these cards were created during a recent Facebook Live demonstration.  Click the image below to watch the replay! Don't forget to click subscribe on my Youtube channel to see future demonstrations and tutorials from me.
