Over the next few weeks I will be showcasing the Teresa Collins CHRISTMAS COTTAGE designer pad and coordinating stamp set CHRISTMAS COTTAGE CLEAR STAMPS. For my first piece I decided on a traditional Christmas Card using both the papers and the stamp set.
Distress Ink around the outside edges.
Stampendous Frantage Aged Hunter Embossing Enamel. I stamped my image onto mountboard and then cut out the triangular shape. I added VersaMark
ink to the mountboard to give the enamel something to stick to and then
sprinkled the shape with the enamel and heated with my heat tool until
melted. I applied two layers of enamel and then stamped my image into
the enamel whilst hot. I love the deep impression and the interest this
gives to the stamped image. I also added a pot for my tree again cut
from mountboard and decorated with enamel. To add a few highlights I
added silver Paint Dabber to the raised areas.
Bigz Die and then applied the Frantage Aged Hunter Embossing Enamel to
each number. I coloured the edges of each number with gold Paint Dabber
to give a professional finish. For further interest I also added a
little festive foliage to the top to act as my star. Merry Christmas has
been stamped onto white card with black archival ink and sponged with a little aged mahogany.
