I decided to mix things up a bit and use this stamp for a set of 3 non holiday cards:
I began by stamping Penny Black Christmas Pride onto Tiara White cardstock using VersaMark Ink. I heat embossed this with white embossing powder. I followed this process to create a total of 6 flowers. I colored the flowers using Distress Stains (Wild Honey, Dusty Concord, Broken China, and Vintage Photo). Once dry, each flower was cut out- one full flower and one flower center. I layered the flower centers onto the full flowers using pop dots and then added a Candi Dot to the center of each flower. Sentiment by Penny Black, 4185F Happiness. The sentiment and flowers were layered onto the cards, constructed using Penny Black Mix and Match cardstock.
I'm dying to see what Chupa created with this same stamp and sketch... (each day I'm in suspense waiting to see her marvelous creations!). You can check out her take on her blog HERE.
And how 'bout a giveaway???
