Had a fun Christmas card class last night! There are just so many fun Stampin’ Up! sets and techniques to share! This card uses the Beauty of the Season set.
I started with watercolor paper, embossed the image with black embossing powder, and heat embossed. We then used the Aquapainter dipped in Cherry Cobbler ink (while the pad is closed, squish the top and bottom together to get a pool of ink in the lid. Dip the Aquapainter in here and color the cardinal.
I used a Blender pen with Crushed Curry for the beak, Baked Brown Sugar for the Branches and Cherry Cobbler for the berries. We then dabbed dots of Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details to give it a little bling.
We then stamped the Hardwood Background in Baked Brown Sugar onto Baked Brown Sugar and accented with the lovely Cherry Cobbler 1-inch sheer ribbon.
If you live in the Lincoln, Nebraska, area I’d love to have you join me for class.
Wherever you live, happy stamping!
