Making Christmas Bright! Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop! Illuminez les fêtes!

Hello and welcome to the Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop for November! And this month it's all about Christmas!!

So I have created two different Christmas cards to share with you and of course who doesn't love a rainbow!

I was so excited when I saw this stamp set and matching punch in the catalogue and over the moon when I learnt that I would get to create with it for the Artisan Blog.

So my mind got thinking about the use of colour at Christmas and how we sometimes are drawn to the more traditional colours - so I decided to make an explosion of colour using the rainbow on my card.

You all know I love ink blending so this card was such a joy to create!

I pulled out some Baker's Twine to create my little string of lights too.

For my next card I knew I wanted some Christmas baubles, so I took the DSP and my circle punches and created my own baubles. I used the Christmas Bulb Builder Punch (try saying that quickly!!) to create the top of my baubles and some of the thin gold twine to "hang" them from my card.

I hope that you love my creations and that they gave you some inspiration. On the other side of the world you will hop to Susan in New Zealand and see her awesome projects. But come back soon!

Voilà! J'espère que vous aimez mes créations et dites-moi si ça vous plaît!
