Season of Joy

Here are a couple of ways to use the Season of Joy stamp set. The above card is one that I demonstrated at Maria's workshop. She wanted me to show uses for the Many Marvellous Markers she had bought. This is very simple, but can take some time as you colour each part of the stamp. It could be enhanced by putting brads in the centre of each of the flowers or for an even simpler use you could emboss the whole image in gold on perhaps red or black card.

Here I've used the tree, greeting and swirl and embossed them in white. The tree is embossed on designer series paper which gives an instant background. It's easy to do you just need to be careful not to overheat so as not to burn the paper! In real red I've stamped the little flower to link in with the real red card matt. The scallop punch adds some texture and although not very clear I've used the 1/16th inch punch to put a pattern down the scallop and show the green underneath. I think embossing on DSP would probably look even better if the DSP were a darker shade.
The options are numerous. Over to you! More Christmas cards coming soon.
Bye for now
