Happy Thanksgiving Eve!
Today I am sharing a couple of Christmas Cards using the Vintage Bauble Background stamp set. These ornaments are so reminiscent of the ornaments I inherited from my grandparents. The ornaments from my grandparents are circa 1940 and so pretty. They mean the world to me.
I started by stamping the Catherine Pooler Vintage Bauble background stamp on some kraft card stock using Versamark Mark ink. I used Gilded Gold embossing powder by Brutus Monroe and heat set the stamp . I was originally going to ink blend the card panel, but I decided to color with Prismacolor colored pencils.
I used white, Crimson Lake, Permanent Lake, Pomegranate, Process Red and Scarlett Lake to color the Red and Pink version. If I had to to it again, I would stamp with Twighlight ink, leave the stamp in my MISTI, color and then re-stamp with Versamark Ink and emboss with embossing powder.
For the sentiment, I ink blended Sangria and Baby Girl on some scrap cardstock. I then cut the sentiment out using Catherine Poolers Merry Christmas layer die. The layer is out of vellum. I adhered using Nuvo glue pen.
For the blue version, I created the background using the same stamp, ink and embossing powder. I colored the image using white, Denim Blue, China Blue, Cobalt Blue, Cerulean Blue and Violet Blue Prismacolor colored pencils.
For the ombré sentiment, I used It’s A Boy, Day Dream and Juniper inks by Catherine Pooler.
I really love this stamp. I may ink blend this stamp yet this season!
Thanks for stopping by!
