A Vintage Christmas

Here are two cards using the new Holly Leaf and Berry set from Stamp Shoppe Creations.

The first card, I stamped the holly with the Peeled Paint Distress ink and the Berries with the Barn Door Distress ink onto a Spellbinder label.  Then I sponged around the edges of the label with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink.  The border was embossed with the Bradshaw Couture Creations Embossing folder.  Then add some faux stitching with the ScorBuddy and ScorBug.

The Second Card uses acetate and the Peeled Paint Distress Ink to create the quilted background.  Then the top background is created by stamping the holly leaves and berries with the Distress Inks onto cream cardstock.  Then I stamped a music background over the Holly with the Gathered Twigs Distress Ink.  Finally sponge around the edges with the same ink.  The Sentiment is also from Stamp Shoppe Creations and it was stamped onto cream cardstock, then cut out with the Spellbinder label die.  Leave the die over the paper while you sponge with the Gathered Twigs ink.  Remove the die and pop up onto the card.  The 3-D holly was stamped with the Peeled Paint Distress ink onto white cardstock, then sponged over the leaves with the Peeled Paint Distress Ink to color them green.  I cut out the leaves and popped them up onto the card.  Tie a red ribbon and attach over the holly with a glue dot!

So, here are two very different cards using the same set of stamps and Distress Inks!  If you are looking for these stamps, please email me.  I am in the process of getting them on-line, but haven't finished it yet!  Have a wonderful day...Keep warm!
