Lil' Inker Designs / October Release Day 2 / Giveaway

Amy_ChristmasStamps3

Hello!  
Welcome to Day 2 of the Lil' Inker Designs October Release!  This release is FULL of amazing dies and stamps for fall and Christmas......are you ready?  Guess what??  The whole new release is now available and can be found HERE!!!



Today's cards show off the new Classic Christmas Stamps.  I wanted to share how to create a very CAS design with one card and to ramp things up on my second card with just a few changes.

My first card shows the CAS version.  I gold heat embossed the main image from the set onto red cardstock along with the sentiment.  To finish, I ran this panel through my Big Shot using the Stitched Mats: Dual Stitched Rectangles to create the stitched border.

My second card uses the same supplies and techniques however I took them one step further.  I gold heat embossed the main Classic Christmas Stamp onto Bristol Smooth cardstock and colored with my Zig Clean Real Brush Markers.

I ran this whole panel through with the 2 largest rectangles from Stitched Mats: Dual Stitched Mats.  The inside rectangle was added to my note card with foam adhesive and the border adhered with regular adhesive.  A few red Nuvo drops were added to the poinsettia.

Talk about a flashback to the past...some of the very first cards I ever made were for Christmas in the early 90's and I used gold embossing on dark colored cardstock. I still think it is an elegant and timeless look.
