And since we are in the middle of the release week, I just couldn’t resist to play more with the fantastic new stamps! Inspired by the warm colors of the beautiful October mood board, I made a non traditional Christmas card using just released Christmas Wishes stamp set! Those gingerbread characters seemed to me so perfect to go with yellow and orange shades!
I started with a piece of Arches Cold Pressed watercolor paper and stamped a bunch of images from Christmas Wishes stamp set in a random pattern with a waterproof ink. I taped the paper to the chipboard to prevent the paper from warping and made a super simple watercoloring, then left it aside to air dry and meanwhile heat embossed the sentiment from the same Christmas Wishes stamp set on a black cardstock.
Once the watercolor piece was dry, I die-cut it with the largest frame from Crazy Stitched Frame Dies set, popped up on a kraft card base with a bit of dimension and finally added a few finish touches using a gold twine and a few matching sequins.
