Hello again, crafty friends, and welcome back to my September Papertrey Ink countdown posts! I have a couple of additional cards for you today featuring the Global Greetings: Christmas mini stamp set. Let's get to it, shall we?
Today's first card features a trio of ornaments as well as one of the Italian sentiments from the set.
I stated by stamping the harlequin background block three times in Limeade Ice ink onto a white cardstock panel. I die cut one an ornament from the center block and mounted the panel to a white card base. Next, I stamped the sentiment in the negative space left from die cutting my ornament. Then, I die cut and stamped two more ornaments from the Vintage Ornaments set.
I used the drippy icicle image with a glue pad and added glitter overtop my Aqua Mist images. I fashioned hooks from some earring wire I had lying around and adhered those to the back of my ornaments before mounting them to the card front with foam tape. I finished the card with a few small bows made from 1/4" silk ribbon that had been colored with a Copic.
My second card today uses one of the German sentiments from Global Greetings: Christmas.
I started by stamping the large mistletoe image in both Spring Moss and Ripe Avocado inks (though it's difficult to see the Spring Moss in the photos). I then stamped the sentiment in Dark Chocolate and the berries in Fresh Snow.
I matted that panel with a piece of white cardstock that I had cut with the Edgers #1 die and mounted it to a Pure Poppy card front that had been textured with the Rustic Burlap Impression Plate. I used Crystal Stickles on each of the berries to give it a little sparkle and embellished the mistletoe sprig with a ribbon bow once they had dried.
That's all for me today folks. Thank you for visiting with me today! I have a few more projects up my sleeve for tomorrow, so I hope you'll join me then. In the meantime, make sure to check in with Nichole, Ashley, Betsy, Cristina, Danielle, Dawn, Erin, Heather, Laura, Maile, and Melissa to see even more of this month's new releases. See you soon!
