Stamping With Friends Delicate Baubles


Welcome to For the Love of Stamping and the Stamping With Friends Blog Hop! This month the theme is "Blogger's Choice"!  We can showcase anything we want from any of the current Stampin' Up!® catalogs. My choice is from the July - Dec mini catalog - Delicate Bauble dies.

Delicate Baubles
I chose this die set to be able to feature the "Paper Piecing" technique.  This die set is PERFECT for it! 

I have started with a card base in Evening Evergreen and added a layer of Misty Moonlight. I then added another layer using the Tidings of Christmas DSP.  This particular sheet from the DSP pack is my favorite!

To create the center focal point you need Night of Navy cardstock (base bauble) and Misty Moonlight for the decorative outline.  I adhere the Misty Moonlight outline to the Night of Navy base with Tombow. This was adhered to the cardbase with dimensionals.

I cut a 2nd layer of the outline in Evening Evergreen for the tree and used a piece of Press n' Seal to grab the pieces from the cut out. This allows me to keep the pieces in right place and all I had to do was add some Tombow to the back and press them into place!

I then added some clear Wink of Stella to the green inserts and the Blue Backed Adhesive gems to each of the snowflakes (or are they stars?  Not sure - lol) for some sparkle.  
I hope you enjoyed my post today! Be sure to continue your blog hop journey onto  see what Libby has created!
