the last of the wood stamps (for now)…

The last stamp that I borrowed, se previous posts, is a huge Outlines stamp that I stamped on water color paper with StazOn timber brown ink.
Once dry I water colored it with Distress water color pencils, trimmed it and applied the ink around the outside edge before applying it to the cream card stock  base card.
Next I glued it to the card front.
From golden card stock I die cut three hellos, using My Favorite Things “Little Hello”, glued them together and then to the card front.


yet more wood…


I went more artsy with my colors for this card!
The card is kraft card stock that I stamped with the image from a “Raindrops on Roses” wood stamp, also from the shop (see previous posts), using StazOn timber brown ink.
I colored this with Derwent coloursoft pencils.
To finish I stamped the sentiment from Hero Arts “Color Layering Dragonfly” set using the same ink.

another wood stamp…


What was more outdoors than the stable where Christ was born?
The base card is white card stock with a layer of black card stock.
The main panel is watercolor paper that I stamped with another of the wood stamps that I borrowed from the shop and stamped it with VersaFine onyx black ink and then watercolored with Distress water color pencils…I love them!
To finish I stamped the sentiment, unknown company, with the same ink.


leaves…


This card was quick because I have a stash of kraft card stock embossed with Tim Holtz 3D “Foliage” embossing folder and colored with Distress inks.
I added that with gold and brown card stock to a kraft card stock base card.
To finish I die cut brown card stock with the Catherine Pooler “Thankful Die” and glued it to the card front.


red and green…


For this challenge I decided to go sentiment free.
This is another of the wood stamps that I pulled from the shop, Crafting for Good, where I volunteer and will return for the big 10 cent sale this coming Saturday.
The base card is white card stock with a layer of red card stock that I embossed with a Stampin’ Up ‘Dainty Diamonds” 3D embossing folder.
On more white card stock I stamped the image from Magenta with Memento tuxedo black ink and colored with Copic markers before cutting out and applying with foam tape.
