We're introducing a new Christmas Stamp Set over at Paperbabe Stamps blog
As usual I had many ideas with this set but not enough time to make everyone... yet!
This simple card I tried to get the effect of letterpress... by stamping two more bears from cardstock cutting just the bear part, I've layered these on top of eachother lined them up to the stamped image and passed it through my embossing setting on my big shot. Tada! I'm looking forward to detailing just the jumper part.
I've used the holly sprigs to create a little pattern on the blue paper, the Polar bears jumper has been coloured using copics, I've also added a little shadow and cheeks with copics too.
I couldn't resist trying some foil transfer, I've separated the jumper using a red foil and the background is a slightly patterned foil, I opted for the stamp N' Bond method, although I did try my laminator but I wasn't too pleased with the results, definitely something to have another go at when I get some time!
And lastly just a couple of tone on tone cards,
I tried to add different ink to the jumper on the stamp before stamping onto kraft, it gives a very weathered look, much better in real life!
We have one more introduction tomorrow so pop back then.
Thanks for stopping by
Enjoy a wonderfully creative day!
