A Christmas card is probably not what you would expect to see from the Waterfront stamp set. But, I have Christmas on the brain, and Waterfront has this cute, little pine tree.
Here’s a picture of the complete Waterfront stamp set that’s being featured on the What Will You Stamp challenge this week. Click on the picture to go to the site to see how you can participate.
The first thing I did was stamp the pine tree in three shades of green ink (Mossy Meadow, Shaded Spruce, Old Olive) across Very Vanilla cardstock. Next, I used a Stitched Shapes oval die to cut a “spotlight” out of the trees, and triple-layered this to make it stand out. This made a perfect place for my stamped (soft suede ink), and die cut, deer from the Dashing Deer Bundle.
Next, I stamped “Merry” from the Merry Christmas To All stamp set in Mossy Meadow ink. Then, I ran the art piece, minus the oval, through the Big Shot using the Softly Falling embossing folder. Once embossed, I layered it on Mossy Meadow cardstock, on a Thick Very Vanilla card base.
How do you like the plaid “Christmas?” I used a die from the Merry Christmas die set to cut the word from Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper. I backed it with a second layer, so it would lay nicely on the snow.
TIP: If you want to dot the “i,” watch for it when you are die cutting. I had to dig the red, plaid dot out of the trash.
The Waterfront stamp set has been very popular, and I’ve seen many beautiful projects using its images. I’d love to see your contribution on our gallery wall.
