Holiday Lineup for Christmas Stamp A Stack
It's always nice to have a bit of humour and when I first saw the HOLIDAY LINEUP stamp set from Stampin' Up, I thought "What a fun set of stamps". I've used each of them for this set of 3 cards in the April Christmas Stamp A Stack , and kept the colours to a minimum.
What could be more basic?
Here are the cards and as you can see, quite a bit of variety can be achieved using a limited pallet.
I've hand drawn the border twice using a BLACK Stampin' Write Marker and filled it in with the REAL RED MARKER. Then I selected a few highlight areas to colour in Red and added the postage stamp and snowflake stamps from the WINTER POST stamp set.
The beautiful edge to the WHISPER WHITE card is achieved with one of Stampin' Up!'s new releases from the AUTUMN/WINTER MINI CATALOGUE (select the catalogue to view it's contents)
Stampin' Up! have given us some EDGELITS DIES - wonderful little cutters that cut exactly where you want them to!
And not only do you get one in the pack but a second delightfully shaped edge that I've used on the next card.
This last card uses a retired background stamp named SANDED. I loved this and was sad to see it discontinued, but there are so many wonderful stamps in the Idea Book & Catalogue
that some of the old favs have to make way for new and exciting sets.
The gorgeous greeting is from the HEARD FROM THE HEART stamp set.
That's all for Christmas until June. I'll be away for most of May so no classes!
Until Next time
