Using Summer Stamps for Christmas?


Merry and Bright

I love stretching stamps! I set out on a mission to find a way to use some of my non-holiday Hero Arts stamps on a Christmas card, ‘Tis the season and all. So I pulled out a floral stamp, and decided to make somewhat of a holiday wreath with them. No I could’ve kept going with the stamping for a full wreath, but after I got started I like the look of an open border so I left it there. Here’s what I did:

I used a circle die and pencil to draw on an temporary circle image to base my wreath off of.
I began stamping images parallel to one another using Christmas colors until it looked the way I wanted.
Next, I used an anti static powder tool on the card base before stamping my sentiment in versamark and heat embossing some liquid platinum embossing powder.
I mounted the panel onto some craft foam, and then onto a blue card stock base.
