Wishing you Peace, Love and Joy..

Not having any bell stamps, I had to be innovative and have used the above dies to cut my bell and ringer shape.  Then I coloured them with Distress Inks and a spritz of Perfect Pearls to give them a shine.  Next I stamped up some holly foliage in different shades of green Distress Inks and stamped on a couple of long ribbon curls to hang my bells.  To finish I stamped the sentiment, 3D mounted my bells and layered the top panel on green card. I am playing along with Merry Monday #204 challenge - Bells and March Rudolph Days challenge - Anything Goes.  Thanks for taking a peek

  1. I love your bold, gold bells and that beautiful sentiment. (I am looking for some nice Christmas sentiment stamps. What make is it please?) Your double stamped foliage looks good too. I like this card very much. Kate x

    1. Hi Kate, thanks for your lovely comment... that sentiment stamp is actually my friend Vikki's but if I remember it is a Stamp It stamp, part of a set by an Australian company... just checked and their website is down at the moment and they are on facebook

  2. Beautiful bells hanging on your tree and I agree with Kate your sentiment is a great one.
