Merry Monday #290 - Bells

Hey Merry Monday fans...JoAnn is our hostess this week and she would like to see BELLS on your Christmas cards.


I chose to use JINGLE BELLS rather than regular bells on my card.  Here's what I came up with:


I started with Merry Music DSP from SU!...I mean how perfect that there was Jingle Bells music in that paper pack to use!!

I stamped the pine branch from SU!'s Ornamental Pine in Smoky Slate ink and then used a shimmer pen over all the pine needles...IRL it really sparkles!  Next I added a couple die cut JINGLE BELLS from Lil Inker in Real Red cs and attached them to the pine branch.


The sentiment is from PTI's Season's Greetings and is embossed in black and then matted in red to match the layer under the DSP.  Some silver cording bows at the top of the bells and some heavy white baker's twine at the top finished off my card

We can't wait to see what you come up with using BELLS on your cards this week!  Take a look at what the DT came up with for some more inspiration, and then play along with us right HERE.

Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!

  6. Thanks for the inspiration, Marcia! I like yours and Colleen's cards made with jingle bells and pine boughs. I have a 1999 Stampin' Up stamp set that has a jingle bell in it that would be perfect to use along with your inspiration! Thanks! -Donna
