I have 2 cards to share today. The first one is for this week’s challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More.
Our challenge is to create a card based on the photo inspiration, which is like a beautiful scene from ‘Home for the Holidays’. I’ve been wanting to do some offset stamping, so I used white pigment ink on the poinsettia’s, then shifted my block and stamped them again in blue ink. When I try techniques like this, I often wonder how Laura Bassen and Jen McGuire can eyeball a project and stamp images without a stamp-a-ma-jig...not me! If I need perfect placement, then I need that tool :-) I added a few gems, some twine and popped the blue panel up on a white card base...all set!
Here is a close up:
My 2nd card is for this week’s challenge at Less is More. Our challenge is to create a one layer card, based on the theme 'The 12 Days of Christmas’. Well, that is a challenge for me, but I did find a digi image of a pear tree by Beccy Muir.
I printed the pear tree image on Copic X-press cardstock, and colored everything with my copics. Then, I used my Wink of Stella glitter pen on the pears and red bow. The sentiment is computer generated. And, that’s when a one layer card gets difficult...you have to ‘stop’!
