SSCB#49 Happy Holidays - Bell Ornaments

Hi and thanks for stopping by!  A new challenge begins today at Serendipity Stamps Challenge Blog!   This month we're looking for Holiday Cards. I thought I would do something a little non-traditional this time.   These bells are from the Ornament Pops Stamp Set.   It's available as an outline - so you can color it yourself, or as a solid image set - ready to dip in ink and stamp like I used today. I really love purple and pinks at Christmas.   Those colors always remind me of the advent wreath in church.  It was always a delight to see a new one lit every week counting down to Christmas. 
I stamped the bells in two shades of purple, fussy cut them, and adhered them with adhesive foam tape to add some dimension to my project. 
 This sentiment is the Happy Holidays II and you can find it on sale for $2 here. 


Could you use a little more inspiration?  Check out designs from our team.  We have a special guest this month too!!  I hope you will stop by and say hi to Hazel Hodgkins from Hazel's Paper Designs!

Yes, these colors are for sure the color of the candles on the Advent wreath. What a great idea! You fussy cut the bells , right? I am studying the mix of layers as I always do and I still think its a gift you have . Gorgeous card! Hope Roger had a wonderful birthday yesterday. We all played volley ball out front yesterday until the sun went down. Boy.. am I sore today!

I thought I'd left a comment, but apparently not! The bonus: a second helping of seeing this gorgeous card that yes, most certainly replicates the Advent wreath candles. The bells, the papers, the layers...swooning!
