Hello! Hope your October is off to a great start. Simon Says Stamp has a new release called Season of Wonder now available in the shop. You can see the full release here. Simon was so kind and sent me the super pretty layering stamp set called Fresh Air Holiday Tree. Take a look at what I made.
What do you think of my pink tree? This is actually the third card I made with the stamp set. Sadly, the first card didn't make the cut. I used distress inks in Spun Sugar, Kitsch Flamingo and Picked Raspberry. After I stamped all the layers, I decided that I wanted to add some embossing, but I had removed the final layering stamp from my stamping tool. Then I remembered that you can add embossing powder to distress ink before it completely dries. So, I applied some SSS Rainbow Sparkle embossing powder, created a mess removing the excess and then heat set it. The embossing powder only stuck in random sections of the top layer. That happened to be the Picked Raspberry and I love how it deepened the color in some areas. I die cut the piece and adhered it to a panel of light pink cardstock that I embossed with a Simon Says Stamp snowflake embossing folder. I then added some Tim Holtz Idea-ology mirror stars. The sentiment is from a different Simon Says Stamp set called Holiday Gift Giving. I tried using the sentiments from the Fresh Air Holiday Tree set, but the sentiments are curved and when I stamped one of the sentiments on the first card panel, I made I just didn't like the look. I stamped the sentiment in black ink (after trying it in Picked Raspberry) and then die cut it with the matching die. I love this tree in pink!
