Hello! I'm so excited to join this month's release at Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps! It's a great collection of Christmas stamps - my favorite season - not because of the cold - hate the cold - but love the reason for the season - Christ's birth! I made two cards from two of the sets. I just love silhouette stamps but also stamps that let me color and there are both in this month's release.
I got inky with my first card - I just pulled out my distress inks and sponged and masked and sponged and masked - I wanted the top darker so the stars could start coming out and brighter at the bottom to emphasize the silhouettes of the Three Kings. I embossed the sentiment in silver - then went back and outlined one of the mats in silver to match.
For the second card, I went with a no-line watercoloring look by stamping in Distress Inks Tea Dye and using my watercolor markers to color in the images. I fussy cut them out and popped them up against some patterned paper with the edges also sponged.
Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you get inspired by all the eye candy my teammates have created. I know you'll be impressed by how versatile and different all the cards are!
