Silver Bells, Silver Bells!!
Hello and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! I’m finally getting to make the Silver Bells from the Stampin’ Up! Cherish The Season bundle! These jingle bells are so pretty and really make a Christmas card cheerful! You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.
We have a sketch challenge this week, and here is the sketch we are using for our projects:
Adhere a panel of the holly ‘Tis The Season 6″ x 6″ designer series paper to the front of A Thick Whisper White card base. Use the Triple Banner punch to make a banner tail on the Shaded Spruce plaid ‘Tis The Season DSP panel and adhere it to the card front.
Cut a Real Red panel with a scalloped rectangle from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. Adhere a red panel of the ‘Tis The Season DSP to the center. Cut out the two largest jingle bells from the Sounds of the Season Dies in the Stampin’ Up! Cherish the Season bundle from Silver Foil. Cut out the corresponding seam covers from Silver Foil and adhere them to the bells. I placed a piece of scotch tape behind the bells to keep the holly die cuts from falling out. Cut three of the large pine sprigs from Just Jade card stock and adhere them together with liquid glue. Adhere the sprigs to the scalloped rectangle with liquid glue. Adhere the bells using liquid glue for the small bell and dimensionals for the large bell.
Stamp the sentiment from the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set in Real Red ink on the strip of Whisper White. Trim the end and adhere it to the scalloped rectangle with liquid glue. Adhere a Real Red braided linen trim bow to the bells with a glue dot.
Stamp the sentiment from the Dove of Peace stamp set in Real Red ink on a Whisper White panel. Adhere a strip of the holly Tis The Season DSP to the bottom and a holly sticker from the Wonder of the Season Memories and More card pack to the top. Adhere the panel to a Real Red mat and then to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.
The Stampin’ Up! Cherish The Season stamp set is one of my favorites from the August – December 2020 Mini Catalog, and I’m so glad to use the pretty jingle bells. I can hear them now, and it really puts me in the mood for Christmas!
