One of the most unique stamp sets in the December release is Nature Snippets Stamp Set: a simple layering set with a feeling of calm in it's design.
I heat embossed a three of the solid circle images with Caribbean Sky Crisp Embossing Powder and then the second layers with Antique Gold Crisp Embossing Powder Then added two more circles inked with Caribbean Sky Crisp Dye Ink. A couple of strips of washi tapes, and small dots around a few of the circles using Artist Markers were the only embellishments needed.
This nest card features the same Nature Snippets Stamp Set, however it is only inked with Crisp inks and a few extra flicks of color from the Watercolor Brush Markers - Spring Garden Set, simply embellished with Dots in Maple washi tape.
Moving on to two of the new Paper Packs and Ruffled Flowers Stamp & Die Bundle.*****Essential Black & White 6x6 Paper Pack is going to be a staple in my stash! The new 6x6 paper packs are double sided..I share a video at the end of this post that shows each side of the two packs I played with .
Essential Black & White looks wonderful with Enchanting Washes 6x6 Paper Pack . The Ruffled Flowers Stamps have easy to line up layers that I inked with shades from Tea Party and a kiss of Fresh Lemon for a varied look on some petals. A mix of Green Meadows and Green Fields for the leaves. Did you notice the Wild Ferns stamps and coordinating die set? This was the first time working with it, and LOVE how nicely it adds filler greenery without distraction:))
Mega LOVE Die is a MUST HAVE and so is the Flower Vine Stamp & Die Bundle. Pairing the two together on the next card, along with the Essential Black & White and Enchanting Washes 6x6 Paper Packs
- I first stamped the Flower Vine Stamp several times on an Enchanting Washes paper
- Then colored/doodled them in with Artist Markers and white Gel pen
- Cut the Mega LOVE Die from the center of the colored panel
- Cut another Mega LOVE from Essential Black & White paper pack
- Inlaid the Polk-a-dot LOVE back into my colored panel
- Trimmed the panel down to 4"x 5.25"
- Adhered to an A2 white card
- Embellished with two layers of a Painted Butterfly; colored to match:)
Ruffled Flowers Stamp & Die Bundle add a nice background to the cardfront. I glued two black thin sizes of Fine Frames Rectangles Die to draw the eye in and stamped the hello there around it with Coral Berry ink. Notice the fine line of color around the edges? That is from Artist marker Coral Berry R304. It's so nice to have inks and markers that are the same colors with the same names!!
- Bed of Roses 2" x 3" stamp set is colored with Watercolor Brush Markers - Spring Garden Set repeatedly using the MISTI tool.
- Then I added some of my FAVORITE: Dots in Maple washi tape
- Golden Edge washi is hidden under the Creative Edges: Lace Die, but it adds a hint of shine:)
- A strip of paper from Enchanting Washes 6x6 Paper Pack
- Mega LOVE Die embossed with Razzleberry Crisp Embossing Powder
For MORE embellishment; I added several Carved Rose Stamp & Die Bundle roses and leaves, colored with the same colors from the Watercolor Brush Markers.
*******One final LOVE card: This one is scrappy in nature:)
Our Family Frame Die accents more papers from theEnchanting Washes Paper Pack and a tiny Painted Butterfly. I doodled with a multi-liner pen on the Mega LOVE for some fun shadowing.
*******Still in a scrappy mood: I created my last card to celebrate the new release.
