Good Morning! Today I have another Christmas card made with the Stampin’ Up! Christmas Rose stamp set from the beautiful Christmastime is Here Suite. For today’s card, I used gold embossing for the outline and the photopolymer stamps to color each section in different colors. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.
I stamped the outline image from the Christmas Rose stamp set in Versamark Ink on Shimmery White Paper. I sprinkled it with gold embossing powder and heat set. I then cut it out with the coordinating die. I was glad I used the shimmery white paper for two reasons. First after I stamped each section, I used my aqua painter to go over the sections and blend them (you can use the aqua painter on shimmery white card stock without pilling problems). This gave me a smoother look. The second reason is that the shimmer shows through the image nicely and makes it look special!
I stamped the flowers with Cherry Cobbler ink and then went over them with the aqua painter. Then I blotted it with a paper towel to clean the ink from the embossing. You need to blot it because the embossing resists the ink from being absorbed on the paper and so it has wet ink that can be smeared and spoil your project if you don’t blot it. I next stamped each leaf section with Mossy Meadow ink and repeated with the aqua painter on the broad leaves and paper towel after each. I then stamped the pinecones in Soft Suede and repeated with the aqua painter and paper towel. I finished it off by stamping the berries in Poppy Parade. I did not use the aqua painter on these, but I did blot the ink off the embossing with a paper towel. The Poppy Parade berries really brought the bouquet to life after they were stamped!
Next I cut a panel of the green paper from the Christmastime is Here specialty designer series paper and adhered it to a gold mat. I cut the lattice from gold foil with the large die and adhered it to the panel with liquid glue. I cut a strip of the shimmery gold ribbon and wrapped it around the panel, securing it in the back. I stamped the Celebrate the Season sentiment from the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set in Versamark Ink on a strip of shimmery white card stock and sprinkled it with gold embossing powder and heat set. I then trimmed the ends and adhered it over the lattice with dimensionals. I adhered the floral bouquet on the panel with dimensionals and added a large bow made with the gold shimmer ribbon. I then popped the panel on a Mossy Meadow card base with dimensionals. I finished off the card front with three gold glitter enamel dots.
I stamped the sentiment from the Frosted Foliage stamp set in Mossy Meadow ink on a panel of Whisper White. I added a strip of the green paper from the Christmastime is Here DSO to the bottom and added a thin strip of gold foil. Then I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.
When I first got the stamp set I was surprised that it had both cling stamps and photopolymer stamps. But it makes sense that you have photopolymer for the solid images so you can see through the stamp to position it over the lined images. I was pleased at how easy this makes it to create the main focal image and how beautiful it came out with this technique. Stampin’ Up! did a great job of designing the pieces so you can use all the different colors on different sections of the bouquet. I definitely recommend trying it.
