Stamp Crew Review Blog Hop! We share our take on a selected stamp set every first and third Monday. This week we are using a classic stamp set from the main catalog, Festival of Trees, which coordinates with the Tree punch. If you are following the blog hop order, you have just come from the super fabulous blog of Nikki Spencer. She always has such fun projects!
I wanted to focus on using this set for something other than a Christmas card, perhaps a winter card. I love making winter cards in January!
Freshly Made Sketches #215 as a jumping off point for my card. Hoping it would show up, I went a little crazy splattering the card with white acrylic paint.
Stamps: Festival of Trees; Paper: Whisper White, Season of Cheer DSP; Ink: Soft Sky, Island Indigo, Wisteria Wonder, Mossy Meadow; Accessories: White 3/8" Glitter ribbon, Silver sequin trim, Banner Triple punch, Watercolor brush, Sponges, White acrylic paint, Post-It Notes.
Giving a snowy branches look a try, this card was inspired by Heather Telford.
Stamps: Festival of Trees; Paper: Night of Navy, Whisper White; Ink: Soft Sky, Marina Mist, Island Indigo, Basic Black Archival, Versamark; Accessories: Clear embossing powder, 3/4" Circle punch, Sponges, Watercolor brush, White acrylic paint, Post-It Notes, Softly Falling EF, Big Shot, Dimensionals.
Although I really like realistic images, I wanted to give another neglected image a try... the modern tree image. There were a lot of iterations on what colors and layout is best for a modern Christmas card. I don't really live in the modern art world, so I can't say I nailed it, but you get the idea.
Sunday Stamps #115.
