Hope you had a lovely weekend and were able to squeeze in a bit of crafting. Todays card is from my recent Wow embossing powder class. The stamp is from Woodware and is called Doodle Holly and I think its one of my favourites from them this year, lots you can do with it . I absolutely love the Sparking Snow embossing powder, I used it last year and thankfully its still available this year.
The Holly stamp has been inked with Versamark ink onto some Kraft colour cardstock and then Sparkling Snow embossing powder sprinkle on top and heated. I then cut the image out and using Distress Oxide Walnut Stain ink and a fine tip water brush I coloured the leaves in. The Holly area of the stamp was then inked again with Versamark and stamped onto some Brunswick Green Foundation card and sprinkled with Sparkling Snow embossing powder and heated. I then cut out the Holly leaves and attached them with foam pads to the previous cut out piece matching up the image carefully. The background White piece of card was coloured with some Creative Expressions Cloud ink in Frosted Mink just slightly bigger than the stamp size. I then inked up the whole Doodle Holly stamp with the Distress Oxide Walnut Stain ink pad and stamped the image on my card, that way it gives me the twine/stem pattern on the top. Next I took one of the Woodware greeting stamps from the set called Christmas Cheer and using the Walnut stain ink I inked up my stamp and stamped off on some copy paper before stamping on my White card. I wanted the text to be subtle in the background. I stamped it a few times around and off the cardstock. I then attached the stamped piece onto the card matching up the image again and I made some berries with Creative Expressions Red PVA glue. These I made the night before and left to dry completely on a spare piece of heat resistant mat. Finally, the sentiment which comes in the Holly stamp set was inked and embossed as before onto some Brown cardstock and attached at the bottom. I did mat it onto some more Kraft card and the card size is 7″x 5″.
Hope you like it, back tomorrow with another Wow embossed card.
