One of the things I love about the bundle called Christmas Season is it is a beautiful stamp set for Christmas cards but it is also a beautiful stamp set for other seasons too. Christmas Season is part of the Painted Christmas Suite that is in the 2021 Jauly – December Mini Catalog. This is a gigantic suite that includes two stamp sets, two die sets, Designer Series Paper, ribbons and an embellishment. You can purchase the entire suite with one item number or you can purchase things separately. If you buy one or both of the stamp sets with the coordinating dies, you can save 10%.
I decided I did not want to make a Christmas card with this bundle so I used non-traditional Christmas colors. In this case I used Sahara Sand and Crumb Cake ink for the pinecones. I did stamp off once when using the Crumb Cake ink to make it a bit lighter. This means after I inked it up, I stamped it on a scrap piece of paper and then on my card stock. The pinecones are a two-step stamp which means it takes two or more stamps to make one image. After I stamped them both, I cut them out using the coordinating die. I used Balmy Blue and Pear Pizzazz for the leaves and also stamped off on a piece of scrap paper before stamping on my card stock. This made all the colors a little more muted for a softer look.
The sentiment is from the stamp set called Heartfelt Wished. I stamped it in Crumb Cake ink.
Before reading the sentiment, I was thinking ‘what a great use of non-traditional colour for a Christmas card’! I still think it would be a great idea 🙂
Susan, this is another lovely card. I love the colors and simple, yet beautiful layout
This is so beautiful, Susan. I love the colors, and it would be a wonderful Christmas thank you card!
