CAS Christmas Wishes in Silver and Gold :-)
Here is one more card that I created using the Ornamental Pine stamp set- again, I hope you are not growing tired of seeing this set yet…it has been on my desk for almost a week now and I am still having fun with it!
I decided to use Vellum for the AW27 Around the World Product Challenge as well as play along with The Paper Players PP218 Clean and Simple (CAS) Silver or GoldChallenge (had to use both- I could not resist:-)), and of course, another card for the CCC14 Splitcoaststampers Christmas Card Challenge (which is really a challenge you set for yourself to keep creating Christmas cards all year long).
Again, if you have not had a chance to check out the above sites yet, I would encourage you to do so- great inspiration from all!
Using the Embossing Buddy®, de-static a two pieces of Vellum.
Ink the large pine leaf stamp using Versamark™ ink and stamp onto one of the prepared pieces of Vellum. Apply Stampin’ Emboss® Silver Embossing Powder and heat with the Heat Tool.
Ink the pine cone image using Versamark™ ink and stamp onto the other piece of Vellum (repeat for three images). Also ink and stamp the sentiment onto this piece of Vellum as well (stamping in an area where you can trim the sentiment without interfering with the pine cones).
Apply Stampin’ Emboss® Gold Embossing Powder to the pine cones and sentiment and heat with the Heat Tool.
Carefully “fussy cut” each pine cone around the embossed image- mount onto the embossed pine images using Stampin’ Dimensionals® (placing the Dimensionals® behind the embossing so you cannot see them).
Trim the Vellum panel and adhere to a piece of Whisper White cardstock (I used Tombow™ Multi Liquid Glue and applied the glue to the back along the pine needles).
Add the sentiment layer (again, I used a thin line of Tombow™ and I cannot see the adhesive at all).
Add the panel to the Whisper White card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals® to finish off the card- "Easy, Peasy" as one of my fellow demonstrators likes to say :-) but I truly had to restrain myself from adding Pearls- lol!!
