Hello Stampin’ Friends ~
I hope you had a wonderful weekend. We were graced with an amazing Leaders Summit … so many ideas and information shared. I can’t wait until our OnStage event because then we get sneak peeks into the January thru June Mini Catalog!!
But … let’s not jump the gun yet because we have an incredible Annual Catalog and a Mini Catalog full of stunning new stamp sets, dies and kits! One of my favorite stamp set and coordinating dies came back and I was thrilled … Toile Christmas. Who doesn’t LOVE Cardinals!?
I love Cardinals and I love this card! It is full of depth and texture … the base is Whisper White with a Old Olive mat and a Whisper White background embossed with the Subtle 3-D Folder. The Soft Suede is die cut with the Stitched so Sweetly Dies and embossed with the Wrapped in Texture Embossing folder.
My images from the Toile Christmas stamp set were stamped with Tuxedo Black Ink and die cut with the Christmas Cardinal dies. I used the Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive and Soft Suede Combo packs to color the Cardinal and the branch. I have a video on coloring with Stampin’ Blends HERE: Stampin’ Blends Tutorial.
The sentiment was stamped with the Itty Bitty Christmas Stamp Set in Old Olive ink … then punched out with the 1-1/2″ Circle Punch. I also covered it in Wink of Stella!!
The greeting, cardinal and branch were all popped up using both the regular Stampin’ Dimensionals and the Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals. Even though there is a lot of texture to the card, popping up the images really draws your eye to an already stunning card.
This was my first go at using the Toile Christmas stamp set and I am thrilled with the way it turned out.
