Gayatri here today with a Christmas card using Hero Arts stamp set.
Here is my card first.
I love the Holiday Petals and Leaves stamp set from Hero Arts. It has a lot of images to use not just for Christmas cards but also to make fall card. Just beautiful images in both solid and outline so you can stamp the solid images using coloured inks and stamp the outline in black and colour them with different medium.
Of course I wanted to colour but I also wanted to combine with solid images. Thinking outside the box, I decided to use a grey cardstock as my base. The grey cardstock is Fog cardstock from Simon Says Stamp. I started with black heat embossing the sentiment on the centre of the panel. then white embossing some images and black embossing others around the sentiment. Love the combination of black and white embossed image as well as solid and outline images. To colour the images, I have used distress markers, Festive Berries, Peeled Paint, Pine Needles and Peacock Feather. Then I applied some clear shimmer on the flowers. The subtle contrast of these images against the grey cardstock is beautiful. Something different than the white or kraft base. Hope you like it.
I simply adhered this panel on the red card base. I like the colour red peeking out on the sides and complements the red flowers and berries. Finally I have added sequins from Classic Christmas mix from this month’s collaboration partner Pretty Pink Posh.
Hope I have inspired you to start your Christmas card collection for this year. I have listed all my supplies below for you.
Thanks for stopping by today!
This is Gayatri here today!
So exciting to say we are collaborating with Pretty Pink Posh this month. This collaboration is special for me as I am part of both the design team.
For today’s card, I decided to do something punny. I love Stamp Your Own Salad stamp set from Hero Arts. I think the sentiments in this set are cool and punny. So I made a fun card to give a long lost friend. Here is the card.
