Stampin' Up! Mosaic Madness & Ornamental Pine
It's the first Monday of the month! And that means it's time for the Stamp Review Crew! Time to give you a ton of ideas for a single stamp set. You have likely come from Deb Currier's blog on your way through this amazing hop. If you get lost, simply click on the banner for a list of participants and get back on track.
I volunteered to ceate a Holiday card from the Mosaic Madness set. I have to admit I wasn't quite sure how I was going to do that at the time. Then the Holiday Catalog was released to demonstrators and it was no longer a mystery. I LOVE Ornamental Pine! The detail on the stamp is amazing! I hope you like the final result.
- I love coloring rubber with markers! It really makes the image come alive. I used Old Olive (100079), Alway Artichoke (Part of the Regals Collection 131262) and Soft Suede (Part of the Neutrals Collection 131261) to color the pine branch.
- What would I do without my Stamp-a-ma-jig? Without it, the corner borders would have been all but impossible to do. I did use a post it note to help miter the corners. The stamped images are done in that wonderful Encore Gold Metallic Stamp Pad. The pic really doesn't do it justice. It looks engraved! Gorgeous!
- The sentiment is stamped in Cherry Cobbler and perfectly placed ALSO using the Stamp-a-ma-jig.
- The ornament caps were cut from the Ornamental Pine ornament using my Paper Snips - ANOTHER great tool! They were stamped in the same Encore Gold Metallic Ink. They're popped up using Stampin' Dimensionals.
