I am so excited that as a demonstrator for Stampin’ Up!, that I get to purchase NEW items a month before they are available to the public! I wanted to use them right away BUT didn’t necessarily want to do Christmas. So, my dilemma……….how do I use these obvious Christmas sets and NOT have it be Christmas.
I got out the Farmhouse Christmas stamp set, decided to use the tree AND the incredible fence!! Did you see the fence!!?? I stamped the tree on Soft Suede using Early Espresso ink. This stamp set better stick around because I can use that fence for a lot of things! Follow this link to see my video.
Isn’t it the cutest!!?? Not sure if you can see the Glitter snow in front of the fence, but in person it is very shiny and sparkly! The tree has snow in all its crannies. I used the Fine-Tip Glue pen to go over the white (used the chalk marker) and then sprinkled Dazzling Diamonds over the wet glue. I forgot how much I LOVE Dazzling Diamonds! I will be getting that out a lot more.
I stamped the ‘Love You’ from the Enjoy Life stamp set using Versamark and white embossing powder.
I layered these onto a piece of Early Espresso, but before I layered these onto white I wrapped some Burlap Ribbon around and adhered a True Gentleman button in the middle. If you look closely you can see a Rhinestone that I colored with the Bronze Blend to go into the middle of the button (I HATE threading linen thread through those tiny holes!). The final layer is Soft Suede to tie in all the colors.
