Seasons Greetings in Silver & Blue …

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

It’s been two weeks since we were at our Holiday Retreat and one of the pillow gifts my guests received was the beautiful Christmas Bauble stamp ….


We made a gorgeous card by coloring in the bauble with our inks and blender pens, and a touch of that fun glitter glue! It definitely is a perfect stamp for those who love to color, but what about those of you who don’t like to color?!

That was a challenge posed to me at retreat. After thinking about it, I described a card that could be make in silver and blue, with minimal coloring. It’s now out of my head and onto the paper … or should I say cardstock…


I began by embossing the Christmas Bauble in silver on the stunning Brushed Silver cardstock and then colored it with the Night of Navy Blendabilities Assortment. I only used the darkest shade for coloring the bauble.

I framed it up like a pretty little package using the Silver 1/8″ Metallic Ribbon.

I mounted the bauble image onto Night of Navy cardstock and embossed Seasons Greetings from the “Watercolor Winter Too” photopolymer stamp set, then completed the card by mounting it onto a Smoky Slate base.


You don’t have to love coloring to love this precious stamp … I’m sure there are many different cards we could create with little or no coloring, this is just one idea.

Feel free to share your idea with me … I’d love to share it with our stampin’ community! Send picture to


Thank you for stopping by ~

Hope you enjoyed today’s solution to coloring in an entire image. Sometimes less is more … especially when you need to make 80 Christmas cards!

Have a wonderful day,
