As promised yesterday, I’ve created another project that showcases this fun bundle, and I’m happy to share it with you today. While the other projects (showcased in yesterday’s post) showcase the amazing Delicate Baubles Dies, today’s project also showcases the coordinating Bright Baubles stamp set. Here’s my card:

Bright Baubles Bundle, Stampin Up!, Brian KingThe ornament and sentiment are pulled from the Bright Baubles Bundle, which I’m giving away in my Blog Candy Giveaway this weekend. Here’s a look at this bundle that I’ve enjoyed FAR MORE than I expected I would (and I still have some ideas brewing):

I stamped the ornament with Cherry Cobbler ink on Poppy Parade cardstock and cropped it with the Delicate Baubles Die from the bundle. I colored select elements of the ornament with my Poppy Parade and Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends to give a little depth to the beautiful image. Here’s a closer look:

I added a Cherry Cobbler bow for good measure. Here’s a look at the Christmas to Remember Bundle:
