Happiest Holiday Day 2: Let Your Heart Be Light

Hello all and welcome to Day 2 of the Happiest Holiday Sneaky Peek Week! Today's set is one that not only glistens, it offers beautiful holiday blossoms as well. Introducing Let Your Heart Be Light. Poinsettia-and-holly images that can be used as a two-step stamp with coordinating light beams, a single stamp, or as a pair of borders surrounding a sentiment. We've got 6 sentiments that fit nicely between the borders, several with a light or warmth theme -- all designed to fill the front of a card if you like!

With all the possibilities in this set, I decided to create a fun border for a holiday sentiment. On to my creation!

After stamping one of the images on the top and bottom, I left enough room to slide a sentiment in the middle. This set -- I tell you -- has some amazing sentiments. All done so well! 

I ended up coloring up this image with Copic Markers and used R32, R35, R39, YG67, G20, E81, YG00, BV0000, BV00, Y11, and Y35. I also added some E50, E51 and E53 to the inner portion where the sentiment is and I stippled on some of the color for a little extra something-something! The area around the flower was highlighted with BG0000 and BG11. After I was done, I did add a little sparkle thanks to some glitter glue.

Here's a closeup! 

The rest is just matting it all up. I grabbed a few different patterns from my decorative paper scraps and then added some red sparkly washi tape as well. And that, my friends, is it! 

Guess what? The Bloomies are on standby to show you what they whipped up with these beautiful holiday blossoms. So, make sure you click through and pay these amazing women a visit!
