Today I am sharing three projects using stamps from this kit.
One of the most stunning images included in the kit is this gorgeous ornament. I used it to make a simple one layer card.
I stamped the ornament using my MISTI. I partially inked the image, using Blue Denim ink only on the circle of the ornament. I used a Post-It note to mask the ornament, then I used second generation Moonlit Fog ink, stamping off first on a piece of scratch paper before stamping the cap and hook of the ornament.
Leaving my ornament stamp in my MISTI, I removed my card, and colored my ornament with Copic markers. I used lavender and pale blues for the ball, and cool grays to create a metallic cap. I also added Spectrum Sparkle pen to the ornament. Once my card was fully dry, I placed it back into my MISTI and used Versamark ink and silver embossing powder to add the string to the ornament. The Merry & Bright greeting was added with Black Onyx ink.
This is another clean and simple card using the holly image. I used a small sponge dauber to apple the ink to my stamps bit by bit, using my MISTI to stamp and restamp multiple times. I began by adding Jellybean Green to the tips of the holly leaves, each time I stamped, I added a bit more ink, darkening the images as I moved toward the berries. I moved to Grass Green ink toward the middle of the leaves, and Fresh Asparagus at the base. I used Red Velvet ink on the berries, with a tiny bit of Cherry Red at the bottom of each berry. I heat embossed the greeting with gold embossing powder and added a strip of foiled paper and Morning Dew Nuvo drops to give dimension to the berries.
I used another of the large kit images to create this second one layer card, I stamped the pine branch on my Kraft card base with Versamark ink and embossed with Christmas Pine embossing powder.
The pine cone was added with Charcoal brown ink.
I used sponge daubers and Grass Green and Kraft inks to add a bit of extra color to the images as well as the edges of the card. The greeting was assembled using a few of the many mix and match greeting stamps and stamped with Versamark and embossed in gold. I also used a Versamark marker to add ink to the pinecone so I could add gold embossing to the edges of the pinecone scales.
