My friend left these adorable little hearts in my craft room, I'm not sure if she meant to, but since she wasn't here I figured they were fair game. Perfect for adding a little seasonal flourish too with the new Nordic Winter set...
The girls have been previewing this set all day while I struggled with awful lighting... here is the link list:
These little hearts are wooden, and well sanded with lovely smooth surfaces, they were crying out to be stamped...
I used SU Cherry Cobbler.... at the moment there is no other red.
Next I switched to more muted colours to make this simple tree card. I cut out 5 medium sized banner shapes with Spellbinders Banner dies. I folded them in the centre and adhered them back to back to make this little tree. Hot glued a tin star at the top and added a simple sentiment, also from Nordic Winter.
I love stamping the borders from Nordic Winter in different combinations and I decided to make some table top trees with the banner dies in just the same way as I made the card, I always think of Nordic style as being simple and though these stamps are detailed, they maintain that simple style, especially if you stamp them in single colours.
There are limitless combinations in which to stamp the borders and motifs to create unique pieces with that Nordic Knitted feel. I am barely scratching the surface with these examples and I look forward to really getting my teeth into this set!
A little tip for lining up the borders on your block:
If you lay the largest border down, on the table, stamping side down and just step back a moment, it will fall naturally into a straight line, you can then lay out any of the thinner borders beside it and just push them up beside the thicker border, then lay the clear block on top of them, see the pics below.
