Hello and welcome back to day 10 and 11 of my holiday card series! We have had a few unexpected things come up so I haven’t been able to post on time the last couple days. Sorry about that!
Day 10’s card features a simple trick but one I always forget about – stamping onto dark or colored cardstock. I love the way the white and silver pigment inks *pop* off the blue paper to create a completely different look than the regular ink on white.
The wreath stamp is from Hero Arts; the berries, bow and sentiment from PTI’s Bells & Boughs. Both older sets. I don’t know why but sometimes it seems like I need to hold onto a stamp set for awhile (in this case a year or two!) before putting it to proper use. It just sits there and is admired on the shelf – what a shame! Does anyone else do that too?!
Here’s a set however that was just too good to leave sit – one that saw ink in the very same week it arrived! Wow, I know! This is day 11.
I am a sucker for all things nature inspired but especially animal mounts. We see deer all the time here (so often in fact one cracked my radiator just a few weeks back) so it’s not some sort of rare thing, just something that is striking.
Because this set of images looks so nice on it’s own, a CAS card seemed in order, with the help of a few Colorbox Premium Dye Inks. Gorgeous, vibrant color every time.
And that’s all for today. Will be back tomorrow with one final post!
