Stampin’ Up! Seasonal Bells for Fab Friday

I used the Stampin’ Up! Seasonal Bells stamp set bundle and Shake & Celebrate stamp set to create my card for the Fab Friday sketch challenge this week.


Here is the sketch for for Fab Friday 99.  Hope that you’ll stop by the Fab Friday Challenge Blog and play along too!


I started by adhering a panel from the Fancy Frost Speciality DSP to a panel of Gold Glimmer Paper and then to a Cherry Cobbler card base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.


I stamped the sentiment from the Shake & Celebrate photopolymer stamp set in VersaMark ink on a strip of Emerald Envy card stock.  I sprinkled the sentiment with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed it.  I adhered the strip to the card front with SNAIL.


I stamped the bell images from the Seasonal Bells stamp set in Cherry Cobbler and Emerald Envy inks on panels of corresponding card stock, punched them out with the matching Bell Punch and adhered them to the card front with SNAIL.  I stamped the third bell image in VersaMark Ink on a panel of Delightful Dijon card stock, sprinkled it with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed it.  I punched the bell out with the Bell Punch and then used the 1/8″ Handheld Circle Punch to punch a hole in the top.


I pulled a strand of Gold Baker’s Twine from the Baker’s Twine Trio Pack through the top of the Delightful Dijon bell, tied a bow and adhered the bell to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I punched holly leaves and berries from Emerald Envy and Cherry Cobbler card stocks with the Holly Berry Builder Punch and adhered them with Glue Dots around the top of the bell.


I stamped the sentiments from the Shake & Celebrate stamp set in Cherry Cobbler ink on a Whisper White panel.  I inked the image from the Seasonal Bells stamp set in Delightful Dijon ink, stamped it on scrap paper and then stamped it under the sentiment on the inside of the card.
