It's Sunday and time to play with The Paper Players! This week the talented Nance Leedy is hosting a sketch challenge, and I am sure that you will agree that her design is a classic. I hope you enjoy the Christmas card which I created using the perennial favorite stamp set, Lovely As a Tree.
The Stampin' Schach Design Tips
- A Random Act of Stamping! The Leafless Trees from Lovely As a Tree were inked in Early Espresso and stamped onto Very Vanilla card stock. Empty spaces were filled in with the Water Spots stamp from French Foliage and speckles from the Color Spritzer Tool.
- O Christmas Tree! The Pine image was inked with Always Artichoke and stamped onto Very Vanilla. It was then overstamped with VersaMark and heat embossed with Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder. Basic Pearls were colored with a red permanent marker, and used to adorn the tree.
- Snip-a-dee-do-dah! The Christmas Banner image from Pines and Poinsettias was inked with Early Espresso and Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Write Markers, and stamped onto Naturals Ivory card stock. The snipped out image was popped up on dimensionals.
- Ribbon Roses! Snippets of Cherry Cobbler and Always Artichoke Seam Binding were schirred and formed into ribbon roses and leaves for instant "wow"!
