Hi friends, today I had so much fun with a couple stamp sets from Pretty Pink Posh. I used the critters and the berry branch from Winter Woodland stamp set and added some extra holiday things like a santa hat, a cute little bow and a couple gifts from the Holiday Pals stamp set. I also used a pretty scalloped hexagon frame to set up my scene.
I started by laying out all my stamps and dies on a piece of patterned paper to plan my scene. Once I was happy with it, I stamped and die cut all the little images on white cardstock. I colored all these with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers. I also die cut a scalloped hexagon from some gold mirrored cardstock.
I don’t have any rectangle dies from PPP (yet), so I used Simon Says Stamp stitched rectangle die set with my blue-snowflake patterned paper to create my panel. On the sides I blended some Mermaid Lagoon ink to give some depth to this panel. I also went around the sides with my gold deco pen to add some fine gold detail.
I laid all my finished images on this panel and used MISTI to stamp my sentiment in Archival Black ink. Lastly I adhered all my images – some with foam tape and some with glue and added Wink of Stella on all of them. I did consider adding some gems / clear droplets or sequins, but then decided against it as I wanted the focus to remain on the cute birdies and not add too many details to the scene. With Wink of Stella and the gold mirrored cardstock it has enough bling already. (Can’t believe I said that!)
Hope you like this card and give something like this a try :-)
