Good morning! I'm excited to be hopping with my alumni friends and the 2013 team over at Peachy Keen Stamps this morning! You should have arrived here from Michelle - if not, you might want to check the entire line-up at the bottom of this post...I know there will be tons of inspiration, and one pretty fabulous prize!
I pulled out my favorite Peachy Keen Christmas set - the November 2012 Kit of the Month to make my card - using a technique I was inspired by on THIS post at Paper Crafts Connection to stamp two layers of vellum, then stack them together!
Here is a small picture of this kit - I love the deer! But I also wanted to use one of the adorable sentiments, and that leafy branch stamp - there is always so much fun variety in these sets, and for such a great deal! You really just can't go wrong!
I started off by stamping the deer on one piece of vellum, as well as the branches in darker ink. I colored the sweet deer in with my Copic markers. I layered another piece of vellum over the top, and stamped the branch in a lighter green ink.
The ink I used was MFT dye ink - and the trick, I found, was to use my heat gun and thoroughly dry it before touching it! That was the only way I could find to get it not to smear! For the deer, I used black Staz-on ink.
I stamped the sentiment on the front layer, then attached them together, before adding a strip of Avery Elle woodgrain paper on each side, and attaching it to a card back. The front kind of looks like a stained glass window - love the effect it gave!
You're next stop on the hop is the amazing Gigi!
