Believe In The Magic Of Christmas with Sparkle

Hello,

Karen here with my first post for September and where has this year gone to?  This month I have the first of Kaisercraft’s Christmas collections to work with and it is the totally stunning Sparkle collection which is filled with pinks, black and rose gold foiling.  Every sheet of paper in this collection is either glittered or foiled.

If you would like to see some of the collection I have a YouTube video here which shows the beautiful items I had in my Merly Impressions delivery.

I wanted to focus on the use the Sparkle Clear Stamp Set for this page and so stamped the large tree six times, using black ink, onto a page from the 6.5 x 6.5 pad,  I chose the one with gold spots as I thought that would look as though the trees had baubles on. I cut the trees out and as I wanted to make the trees 3d I scored and folded each tree along the centre and then adhered them together – see photo below .

I then cut .25in from the top and left of a piece of Radiance paper and added to some Licorice card.

I matted a 5in x 7in photo onto a piece of Glistening and then onto a piece of Auroral (black side). I adhered this to my page with foam dots, ensuring that I left room to tuck elements underneath.  I clustered flowers cut from Glint, Baubles and trees from the Collectables pack, tags and borders from the 6.5 x 6.5 pad around my photo along with the two 3d trees.

I also added a phrase from the Sticker pad and placed a Champagne rhinestone in the centre of each of the snowflakes on the scalloped border.

To finish my page I stamped the small trees, from the Sparkle Clear Stamp Set, several times onto the same paper as I had used for the large trees.  Then I snipped off the trunks, turned them upside down and used them as pennants for the bunting at the top of my page.  I finished by adding a Dusty Pink paper bloom between each of the pennants.

I can hardly wait, for later this month, to show you what else I have made with this gorgeous range.
