Good morning! It's good to be back crafting after a week off after the Kansas Stamping Away retreat I help co-host. It's always an amazing weekend packed full of laughter and memories. However, it leaves me needing a short vacation afterwards! That being said, preparations for the spring retreat have already begun!!!
I have more inspiration featuring The Stamp Market stamps and dies from the holiday release. I went with non-traditional colors for my 2 card projects today!
My base colors for the Tiny Trees are all Distress Oxide inks in Candied Apple, Picked Raspberry, Worn Lipstick, Broken China, and Peeled Paint. I stamped them in little lines and overstamped the trees randomly with other images from Tiny Trees in Onyx Black Versafine ink. I didn't worry about stamping straight as I was going for the graphic look. To finish, two simple sentiment strips were added with foam adhesive across the trees.
My second card also uses non-traditional colors with the addition of LOTS of gold embossing! I've used the Ornament Stamp and dies to create 2 ornaments that were colored in by blending Distress Oxide inks. My ornaments were embellished with black sentiments, gold heat embossed icons, and some mini gold sequins from Pretty Pink Posh. For this ombre stamped chevron background, I used the border stamp from the Ornament Stamp Set. Using my Misti tool, I was able to just stamp and move upward each time by a bit to create this pattern. I simply gold heat embossed this as well!
Thanks for sharing a part of your day with me!
