LOL, couldn't resist, it's not long now folks!!! I have a little sample today that I didn't have time to put up before the release and so here it is. I love rich colours, lots of sponging etc and so I'm sorry if you were hoping for a little fresh summer fun!! lol!!
I stamped an oval frame from the Ovals - Classic frames onto some cream card. I lined up the oval die (Spellbinders, classic ovals large set) around the frame - being sure to centre the design before I taped it in place, especially important with oval dies as the embossing flange is not the same width all the way around, and ran it through the GC. I didn't emboss the oval on this occasion.
I stamped a sentiment from Compliments of the Season (Versacolour, pinecone ink) and added a chocolate coloured scalloped mat (Spellbinders Big scalloped ovals LG)
I used a slightly bigger die to cut an aperture in a rectangle of kraft cardstock to make a frame - I had pre-stamped this card with a pattern made with stamps from the Ovals set, you can see the details below.
Behind the frame and the sentiment panel, I placed another piece of patterned card - also stamped with a pattern and sponged heavily with green ink.
I used the stamp that I'm going to call the snowflake stamp - you can see how I built up the pattern below. I used Cherry Cobbler ink...yum! I also did the sponging first!
These pics show the build up of another pattern, made using an oval frame. The last pic shows how it looks when you use the same ink all the way along, and when you use another colour of ink to highlight the design. Stamping patterns like this is my absolute favourite thing to do!!
Hi, I’m Claire Brennan and I'm a crafter. I am currently designing new stamps for Gina K Designs as well as prepping some of the popular WMS sets for re-release with Gina - it doesn't get any better! Thanks for stopping by, sure hope you see something different here!
