Black and White and…

Hi, and welcome to the Stampin’ Dreams Blog Hop! This is a monthly hop with Stampin’ Up! friends around the world; you’re currently visiting Sarah Fleming in the USA. This month’s theme is Black & White plus one other color. I chose Bermuda Bay, one of my favorites.

Stampin' Up! Carols of Christmas, Seasonal Bells, Bell Punch, Year of Cheer paper and washi tape, Bermuda Bay Stampin' Blends - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

My card features the Year of Cheer specialty designer series paper (seriously love this stuff!), Carols of Christmas stamp set, Seasonal Bells stamps with Bell Punch, and Year of Cheer specialty washi tape. Oh, and the new Stampin’ Blends!

I sponged Bermuda Bay on the Year of Cheer paper with a Stampin’ Sponge before gluing it to the Basic Black card base. The sentiment panel is 3″ x 4″, and the Basic Black mat behind it is 3-1/8″ x 4-1/8″. I love the “deck the halls” sentiment stamped in black (I used Memento Tuxedo Black). After stamping the sentiment (I used my MISTI to line it up and stamp it), I glued it to the mat, added the strip of washi, and popped the sentiment up on Dimensionals.

I stamped the bells in the same ink (that’s the ink Stampin’ Up! recommends to use with the Blends). I colored the bells with the Light and Dark Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Blends (available for customers November 1!) and also the Color Lifter. For the tiny bell handles at the top, I didn’t want to risk going outside the lines, so I used the pointy end of a Stampin’ Write marker for those bits. I put the bells on Dimensionals and finished off the card with Basic Black Solid Baker’s Twine.

I didn’t take a picture of the inside, but I just lined it with a piece of Whisper White cardstock.
