Merry and Bright with So Suzy Stamps

Hi Everyone,

Christmas is coming and So Suzy has so many fabulous Christmas stamps. I pulled out some of my stash and that's what came of it.

My stamp supplies:

I first inked up the pine cone with Versamark and stamped it. Move the paper a smidgen and stamped it again in green. Heat embossed it in clear with WOW embossing powder.

I masked a square and sponged with distress inks. The heat embossed pine branch resists the inke and you get a white contour around it.

Sprinkled water on it and dabbed it off with a paper towel to get some texture.

I added the sentiment. Finished off the card with the pretty bow and some die cut ornaments. The inside of them I stamped with a part of the ornament stamp and heat embossed it in gold, also with WOW embossing powder. 

Happy Holiday Card Making!

Love how you did the white edge with masking and what a striking card x

Eine Superidee.
Ich dachte schon, du hättest den Zweig ausgeschnitten!!! Aber das wäre Arbeit für einen, der Vater, Mutter und Großeltern erschlagen hat!!! Diese Idee, den Zweig mit farblosem Embossingpulver zu konservieren ist einfach nur genial. Muss ich mir merken. Danke für den Tipp.
Ansonsten ist die Karte klasse geworden.
Und nun lösch nicht wieder alle Kommentare (vor Langeweile???),
ganz ganz liebe Grüße über den großen Teich

Lovely. The ghost outline around the pine bough looks amazing against that gorgeous blue. Those pops of red really make it festive and the sentiment is a wonderful greeting.
So bright and beautiful! Love how easy but very interesting your card is.

That's one of the nicest pine branches I've seen and you made it shine with the ornaments, Cornelia.

Dandelion and Christmas Trees

Hi  Everyone, I am getting tired of making Christmas cards.... I needed a break from them. I love the inspiration picture for the current Sunday stamps challenge , so I pulled out my ancient Hero Arts stamp to make this card.  The sentiment is by Unity stamps. Did some masking and sponging. I also performed a little surgery on my stamp, as those falling dandelion seeds are attached to the main stamp. Just a little cut with my Exacto knife and I set them free! I am also linking up with: Mod Squad Challenge  - Anything but Christmas (exactly how I feel....)
