Let’s Get Hopping 47: Non-Traditional Christmas

Welcome to my blog!


I’m back with the Let’s Get Hopping crew & today we’re sharing non-traditional Christmas projects. You wouldโ€™ve come from the amazing Rachael Merrick or starting with me, either way, be sure to hop right around to check out all our Christmas projects ๐Ÿ˜Š

I’ve always wanted a black Christmas tree decorated with silver baubles with a splash of colour, either blue or purple. So I decided this would be my inspiration for this hop’s project.

Here’s what I came up with…

I used the Whimsical Trees bundle & the trees pattern from the Peaceful Place Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP). I cut the baubles & the star from the Silver Foil Specialty Pack & attached them by rolling up some mini glue dots, which gives that little bit of extra dimension.

Here’s a close up…

It’s hard to see in the photo but one of the foil sheets I used has a purple tinge to it. So I decided to add a splash of Highland Heather to my black & silver card. I changed the colour of the White Glittered Organdy ribbon by swiping my Light Highland Heather Stampin’ Blend over the ribbon.

TIP: Be sure to swipe the back of the ribbon to add the colour so that you don’t knock off the glitter attached to the ribbon. This will also reduce damage to the brush tip of your Stampin’ Blend.

Here’s a close up of the ribbon & sentiment…

Again, it’s hard to see in the photo but I splattered Wink of Stella all over my card to add even more sparkle & shine. You can’t have Christmas without lots of sparkle ๐Ÿ˜‰

And of course you have to decorate the inside. I kept it simple by stamping the short tree in Highland Heather ink on the bottom right corner…

I hope you enjoyed my project today & I’ve inspired you to try creating Christmas projects using non-traditional colours. Thanks for joining me today & be sure to check out my dear friend Megan Teare’s gorgeous project ๐Ÿ˜Š
