Stamping and Vellum

We got a new puppy for Christmas this past December.

I'm sure I'm not the only one with Christmas photos still waiting to be scrapbooked.  Unforgettable Memories has a great selection of Christmas papers and embellishments grouped together.

I spotted the Kaiser wood-cut ornaments on a recent trip and grabbed it.  I thought it would make a gorgeous border on one of my pages. 
I rubbed it with gold ink and then used 'crackle accents' by Ranger tattach gold micro beads. I sprayed some bronze Glimmer Mist and rubbed some red ink on parts.  I kept playing with the inks and accents till I was happy wiht how it looked.

The vellum has white snowflakes printed on it.  So pretty.  I've accented a few of the snowflakes with bling.

I started off by stamping a holly stamp randomly across the top of my 'harvest gold' cardstock. Instead of reinking each time I stamped 3 or 4 times with the same ink. The faded images give some depth to the border.
I used red acrylic paint and the end of a paint brush to dot a few of the holly berries. The gold glitter stars and poinsettas are Making Memories. I added Kaiser jewels to the center of the flowers and to accent some of the holly berries.

My journal spot is from one of the Smash Journal pads.  Love them! Each pad has a few different designs included. 

Love this BIG poinsetta.  I've been saving it for a special project. The round frame and smaller flower are from an old Basic Grey Christmas line.  Basic Grey never goes out of style.
The heart and oval stick pins are with the Wedding scrapbook supplies at Unforgettable Memories.
So check out the Christmas section at Unforgettable Memories next time you're in, and get those Christmas photos scrapped.
