Happy Little Stampers - New Release Bloghop

Hello Everyone!!!
Today I'd like to welcome you to the Happy Little Stampers blog hop to celebrate the release of six new fabulous stamp sets.


Me and my fellow Design Team member will be sharing their projects using these new stamp sets and to be in with a chance of winning a fabulous prize of a $50 gift certificate to the Happy Little Stampers Shop. All you have to do is join in the hop and comment along the way.  A winner will be chosen at random from all the comments left.  The hop will run for one week, finishing at 12pm AEST on 28 November 2016. 

My card for today's blog hop is using the Christmas Joy stamp set which I designed for HLS. Let's have a look at the card. 

I started off with a A2 sized card panel of Strathmore Bristol cardstock and stamped the sentiment in Versamark ink and gold embossed it. Them I then stamped and heat embossed the poinsettias in opposite corners in Versamark ink and white embossed it. I masked the poinsettias in the center so that they appear in a cluster. I then colored the images with Winsor Newton watercolors and blended with water.  I added a little shading around the images using grey color Zig Clean Color Brush pen just to add some interest.  I then attached the entire card panel on brown A2 size top folding card panel using foam tap. Finally I added gold Stickles to the centers of the poinsettia's and created a ffew stars around the sentiment.
