Celebrate the Season




Hi there - today I decided to do a couple cards, one I've always wanted to try by Andrea Wolford who's blog I check out all the time for cool Stampin Up ideas. I also subscribe to her 12 Weeks of Christmas Newsletter and plan to try some of her cards and tag ideas as well. First off is my take on the card - I used Night of Navy cs from Stampin Up and Wintertime Flurry dp by Echo Park. I used the stamp set from Stampin Up as well called Patterned Pines. the image is embossed with white ep on Night of Navy cs and then cut them out. I placed a small piece of the same cs behind the trees and brushed some white ink along the edges. I then stamped out the sentiment from Stampin Up's So Many Scallops set on white card stock and the dp. I punched out the dp and then made two more layers of the white cs and popped them up and finished it with some Stickles. I ran a piece of White Tinsel Trim from Stampin Up along the card under the trees and then popped up the trees as well. I just know I'm going to love that Tinsel Trim. I'm entering this card in Sparkle Creations Christmas Card Challenge #1, Monochromatic.
For the original card I used the Patterned Pines Stamp set, old olive re-inker and pewter shimmer paint. I didn't have white so I substituted with the pewter. You just mix a drop of the shimmer paint with a couple drops of the re-inker and sponge that onto the stamp. It is a nice shimmery image. I also made my own dp using the snowflake from the same stamp set with various inks on a paper from the CTMH Mistletoe dp. I love how these turned out!
