Christmas Baubles (by Shirley)

Hello everyone !

I have two Christmas designs today using Christmas Baubles, one of the new Big Bold Background stamps.   

This stamp image is so beautiful, I spent enjoyable time colouring it with Tom Bow Markers.  I used a white Gelly Roll pen for the centres of the Poinsettias.  I didn't want to add anything else except for the gauzy ribbon and a few of rhinestones.  

For the card below I cut out a couple of the baubles from the larger image.

The background sheet is from Love Letters- digital printable.   I over stamped with the Pine Cone branch from the New England Winter set.   I highlighted the cones a little with a white Prisma pencil.   I attached the two baubles that were painted with Tom Bow markers.  I added a little stickles on both baubles.

Thanks for visiting and I hope you will come back often to see beautiful designs by my talented team mates.



  1. Looks and feels vintige/victorian; I think this is stunning! Inky greetings, Gerrina

  2. The shading around the baubles in the first is so effective & I love the way the poinsettias really catch the eye through your use of colours. In the second it's your use of the New England stamp & I love the way your ribbon echoes the colour of the poinsettia bauble & how the deep red card base also helps to bring it out.
