1 Stamp – 2 Ways – 4 Challenges!

I had fun creating for the following challenges today:

I’m submitting Card 1 for the first 3 challenges.

For the SOS challenge, I chose to use the sketch from the TST challenge. I white embossed the poinsettia image on water-colour paper and then smooshed the CP inks (where I got overlap from the green it’s giving a bit of an orange hue), then I cut out the shapes to match the sketch, added some black to mount each piece and then assembled them all onto the white card base with some dimensionals behind the circle bit.

Supplies:

  • Stampin Up ‘Mistletoe Kisses’ and The Ton ‘Poinsettia Close-up’
  • Inks – Catherine Pooler Designs Rockin’ Red and Lime Rickey
  • Cardstock – Stampin’ up Whisper White, Basic Black & watercolour paper
  • Misc – white embossing powder, ruby-red gems, dimensionals

I’m submitting card 2 for the CASology challenge as I feel that at Christmas time we should all cherish our family and friends; it is a time to show them all how much they mean to us.

Supplies:

  • Stampin Up ‘Wonderland’ and The Ton ‘Poinsettia Close-up’
  • Inks – Catherine Pooler Designs Rockin’ Red, Orange Twist and Lime Rickey
  • Cardstock – Stampin’ up Whisper White & watercolour paper
  • Misc – white embossing powder, ruby-red gems, dimensionals

I gold embossed the poinsettia image on water-colour paper and then smooshed the CP inks, then I stamped, embossed and cut out the sentiment banner and then assembled them all onto the white card base with some dimensionals behind the circle sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

  1. What lovely cards, Tristan. I especially like the way you’ve used the sketch challenge for the first card and cleverly spotlighted a portion of the lovely Poinsettia image with the circle. The white embossing really is effective with those “smooshed” colours. I love the way it looks so much like a watercoloured image. Stunning, really. Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.
