Today I’m joining in with the Stampin’ Through the Catalog showcase of the Ringed with Nature Stamp Set. This card comes from my recent Festive Stamp-a-Stack where we used the Ringed with Nature Bundle. This is just one of the twelve designs the ladies made and just a taster of what was made.
We teamed up some Sale-a-Bration papers with this bundle. This card, however, peeled things back to simply Ink, Stamps and Paper.
Starting with a Night of Navy cardbase and Ink, we randomly stamped the leaf image over the card base. On a square of white cardstock, I drew a 3″ circle with a pencil to help me create my wreath.
Inking up the leaf Image with Evening Evergreen, I stamped one, moved the stamp and immediately stamped again. This is called stamping 1st and 2nd generation and gives two strengths of colour. Repeating this around in a circle generated this pretty wreath. Adding the Poppy Parade berries randomly around the wreath gave a lift of colour.
The centre of the wreath was screaming out for something, so we stamped the base of the house with second generation Soft Suede. The roof was stamped in Night of Navy to tie in with the cardbase, which was carried over into the sentiment.
A flash of Brushed Metallic cardstock sits either side of this wreath panel and a linen bow and sequins finish it off.
I hope you like my share today and I’ve given you some inspiration on how you can make use of this fabulous stamp set.
