Hey crafty friends, thank you for coming back to a special blog post that is kicking off the beginning of STAMPtember!!
Today’s stamp is one of my favorite types of stamps and it’s a stamp that I have blogged about this previously. This background stamp is so festive and as I’ve stated in my other blogs, SSS’s background stamps are so versatile. I’m sure you’re excited to see how I made this card, so let’s get started.
I began by using my static tool all over the card. I’m going to be heat embossing a lot so I don’t want to miss any areas. I inked up my stamp with SSS clear (embossing) ink. I added some silver embossing power because I knew it was going to POP on that dark blue cardstock and I heat set it.
Once it was cool, I cut a circle in the middle to set up for my shaker card. I placed my acetate and adhered it to my paper. I used adhesive foam tape this time instead of making it a no bulk shaker card. I wanted to use lots of Christmas/Winter themed embellishments to make fun. I used my static tool on the acetate so that the embellishments won’t still to it and poured a good amount. I fastened my panel to the acetate and firmly secured it. I turned it over and gave it a couple of shakes to make sure nothing didn’t fall out or stick together. I added my sentiment, a small silver ribbon and a few pearl color enamel beads to tie everything together.
That’s it! A fun Christmas Card using a background stamp that you’ll be able to use multiple times and each card will be unique. Thanks for stopping by my FIRST STAMPtember blog post.
