Skull and Cross Buns - Christmas Joy, Peace and Noel

Hi guys

Back to share some more crafty makes using Skull and Cross Buns Rubber Stamps.

This card uses a set of stamps new for 2017 - Christmas Joy, Peace and Noel Neon Sign set of 3 rubber stamps.

There are also some other word stamps available in this fabulous neon sign style, including personalised ones!

I created a stamped background using all three stamps in different pastel colours, not the best photos of this one but my lamp made it very bright so I had to tweak it somewhat...

I used my MISTI (what on earth did I do without it?!) to line up this lettering and stamped in three shades of pigment ink.  It took a while but worked out ok.  I adhered this to the card base and trimmed it down.  I then die cut some white card with the landscape die and manipulated the sentiment stamp to follow the curve of the snow.  This was then adhered over the background and I added a touch of clear Wink of Stella to the trees.

This photo isn't quite so overexposed...

Materials used:

  • Stamps: Skull and Cross Buns - Christmas Joy, Peace Noel Neon Signs; Paula Pascual - Christmas Messages
  • Ink: Versa Color - Sea Foam, Petal Pink, Baby Blue; Versafine - Onyx Black
  • Die: Clearly Besotted - Tree Landscape Die
