Skull and Cross Buns - Holly Background.....and Black Friday Weekend Reductions!

Hi there

I've had a crafty afternoon today making cards using another batch of lovely rubber stamps from Skull & Cross Buns.  I'll be sharing these in the next few posts.

Before I get to my first card I just wanted to share that there are some great deals over at the store for Black Friday weekend which you can find here.

Emily is offering some great reductions, including her fabulous personalised stamps, so please don't miss out on the reduced prices.

Ok, for this card I used the Holly and Berries set of 2 rubber stamps to create by background panel.

On a panel of white cardstock slightly small than the base I randomly stamped the holly leaves and berries with pigment ink.  These stamps give such a crisp image, the rubber is fabulous quality.  I then mixed some gold mica powder with some water and added some splatters all over the panel.  I finished with a sentiment heat embossed in gold on a vellum strip wrapped around the panel, before adhering the panel flat to the card base.

Materials used:

  • Stamps: Skull and Cross Buns - Holly and Berries; Clearly Besotted - Scrumptious Script
  • Ink: Versa Color - Evergreen, Camellia; VersaMark
  • Embossing Powder: Wow! - Metallic Gold Rich
  • Mica Powder: Perfect Pearls - Heirloom Gold
  • Vellum from stash

Uniko - Challenge #44 - Christmas
Just Add Ink - Challenge #387 - Colour Challenge
