Sweet Stamp Shop release day!! Have you been enjoying all the crafty goodness, showing off the great new release? I'm super excited to share my two cards with you today where I'm using a sentiment set...That's right...a set with only sentiments! Just look what you can do! Both of these cards were created with the Holiday Sentiments stamp set. And for both cards I got a little crafty with embossing powder...why, hello my old friend!
For my first card I took all of the Christmas sentiments and attached them to my stamp press, keeping them as close together as possible. Then I stamped the images on to cream cardstock, using VersaMark (or any embossing) ink. I then embossed with gold embossing powder and cut the cardstock into a tree shape (some might call this a triangle). I inked the edges with Walnut Stain Distress Ink to give the card some more depth. I then dry embossed the green background and a small piece of brown cardstock, which served as my tree trunk. A bunch of twine for a bow, and finishing touch on my tree, and then a sentiment in black, punched out and popped up on the tree, finished my card.
For my second card, I wanted to highlight the New Year stamp so I started by finding an online template for a champagne glass. Once that was printing and cut out of cardstock, I once again used embossing ink and one of the stamps from the Pattern Craze stamp set (love this set!) to stamp the design a few times on the glass. Then I got busy with my silver embossing powder. Once the glass was attached to the card, I stamped and embossed the sentiment, and using one of the small hexagons from the Pattern Craze set, I created champage bubbles! Super fun, right?
Are you ready for some more crafty treats? Then go check out the rest of the DT's projects! And don't forget that on the final release and full reveal day, October 25th, all of the new stamps will be marked down to $10.00! WooHoo!! Enjoy the rest of the hop!
