Happy Sunday stampers! Today's project is another sneak peek at an upcoming set which will be available in the 2018 Holiday Catalog in just a few days (September 5!)...this one is called Winter Woods. It includes some beautiful woodland images as well as a sentiment "Thinking of you this Season", and there are coordinating framelits bundled with it. I'm also showing you a new background stamp called Buffalo Check...this one's going to be on your "must have" list!
I was really pleased with the way this card came together, and it was super quick and easy...perfect for a Simple Sunday project! To start, I stamped the trees in Early Espresso ink onto a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock. I tore the top and bottom edges and trimmed the left and right edges to measure four inches. The top and bottom edges were lightly sponged with Early Espresso ink then gently curled a bit. I also splattered ink from the Early Espresso marker over the trees. I stamped the entire sentiment onto a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock in Early Espresso ink, then trimmed it into a very thin strip so that just the "Thinking of You" was left. The edges were lightly sponged and I used a 1/16" punch on each end so that I could thread pieces of Linen Thread through the holes. The sentiment is attached over the trees with Mini Stampin' Dimensionals and then the Linen Thread is wrapped around the edges and secured to the back.
Don't you just love that beautiful plaid? To make it, I stamped the Buffalo Check background stamp, inked in Early Espresso ink, onto a piece of Old Olive cardstock. Thinking of all the possibilities of colors we could stamp this in is making my head spin!! :)
To finish it up, the focal piece is layered onto the Buffalo check, and finally layered onto a Soft Suede card base.
