I do have my stamps from last year, and those puppies never did get enough inking up, for my taste, so I'm back to them for the moment. And the rest of my Christmas stash, don'tcha know...
I won a challenge over at My Favorite Things a while back, so I did manage to use my prize to grab up the new Hand-Lettered Christmas sentiments stamps. they are wonderfully LARGE sentiments, and I SO dig them.
So, I grabbed some kraft card stock, because I love it (especially for winter cards), and went to town.
I made SIXTEEN of these in one day--and I may even do MORE, I love them so much.
Warning: many photos ahead.
The panels are all cut with Simon Says Stamp stitched rectangle dies. I love the stitched detail.
A detail of that idea.
Snow covered branches is my FAVORITE use for that magic white gel pen on kraft.
The effect is A. MAZE. ING. These trees are from SU Wonderland set, also from last year.
I imagine these sets appear on ebay from time to time, but trees like this are easily found.
Using the smaller accent stamps can make a wonderful impact, too. Don't ignore those babies!
I did have a few flecks of white embossing powder here and there (you may have noticed), but I'm calling it snow and considering it all part of the rustic look I have going on...that works, right?
Hard to believe I pumped these all out in just one (long) day. I love how relatively easy they were to do, and how wonderful brown and white and kraft look together!
