Good morning! I hope you’re having a good day so far. Today at Stamp, Ink, Paper, the challenge is to use Background Stamps in your project. We’d love to see you play along, so please head over to the blog and check out the other design team creations and join us!
My card base is Cherry Cobbler, 4-1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5-1/2″. The Very Vanilla cardstock piece is 4″ x 5-1/4″. I stamped the Sheet Music background stamp in Versamark, then embossed it in Gold. After I glued that down, I added the oval piece, which is Night of Navy cardstock cut with a Stitched Shapes framelit. I added a piece of Cherry Cobbler (4-1/4″ x 1-1/2″), which I had embossed with the new Tin Tile Dynamic embossing folder, using Dimensionals.
I cut the two corner swirls and the jumping deer out of Gold Glimmer Paper using the Detailed Deer framelits (you can get these in a bundle with the Dashing Deer stamp set for 10% off). I glued the flourishes down with liquid glue and added the deer with Dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment, from Dashing Deer, in Cherry Cobbler, then cut it out with a label from the Night Owl framelits and added it to the card with Dimensionals. I finished the card off with some Rhinestones, which I colored with a Dark Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends marker. For the Rhinestone on Rudolph’s nose, I added a little extra liquid glue under the Rhinestone, just because things don’t stick to Glimmer Paper very well without the glue.
Look how shiny!
