Hi Everyone.. Well, we all have them, but how often to you actually use the same stamp more than once? Obviously, some you will use more than others.So, over the next few posts I wanted to share with you some projects I have made using the same image. But, by changing the colours used can make each project so individual...
So, here we go with the first one...Now I know they are not traditional Christmas colours, but I'm in a bit of a Monochromatic, non Christmassy colour mode at the moment!Firstly, I stamped my image using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and coloured it in using my Copic Pens.. Of course the image had to have a glaze of Glossy Accents to bring it to life!I then cut out the image using the largest shape from the Standard Circles Small set of Nesties, I also cut a shape from the co ordinating set of Scalloped Circles small in some Copper coloured Mirror card. Again, I used the largest sized Scallop.And then matt and layered the two shapes together..I then punched a border in the Copper Mirror card using the Martha Stewart Footlights Border Punch (M42-40087).This strip and the stamped image were attached to my base card.Next, I cut and embossed some leaf shapes using the Spellbinders Foliage Die (S4-328).. Just to point out, this set of dies has 6 different leaf shapes. One of which is a single leaf and another which is the same leaf shape but on a branch.To save myself some time, as I needed several of the small leaf shapes, I cut out several of the branch shapes and just snipped the leaves off of the branch.. Five leaves for the effort of cutting one!! Don't ask my why they look Pink in this picture; they were Beige when I cut them out..I attached the leaves to some pre made Prima Flowers (#548186) which I had also added a few Pine Leaves to, which had been punched out using the Martha Stewart Pine Leaf Punchand then applied them to the card to complete the project...So, that's the first one down, check back soon for part two.
Thanks for checking us out.
See you soon.
