Hey guys it’s Tracy here today sharing with you some cards I have made using Origami Winter stamp set. I love the modern feel to this set and particularly love the tree from the set.
I decided to make 3 cards and colour the trees with different shades of green and also use different embossing powders…basically I had a bit of fun playing around 🙂
I started by stamping and embossing the trees onto some watercolour card. The embossing powders I used are Simon Says Stamp Gold, WOW Cloud 9 & WOW Copper.
I used watercolours and for the lighter more citrus green I used with the Cloud 9 powder, the midtone I used Copper and for the darker green I used Simon Says Gold. I did something i never do and let all the watercoloring dry overnight and I’m glad i did, because i went with a loose style they dried lovely.
I die cut all the panels using Dotted Patterns 1 and stamped the Merry Christmas from the same set and then set the panels aside.
The card bases are A2 kraft card and I stamped the tree randomly using Simon Says Clear ink (this is the same as Versamark) You could leave the backgrounds plain as you don’t see much of them but I thought this added just an extra bit of detailing.
I added some twine and a bow to the panels and adhered them to the bases using foam tape. To finish them off I added some Majestic sequins and they was done.
