SIP #179 - Holidays with Gina K Designs Festive Foliage by Claire Brennan

Hi There!  I hope you are having a good start to your week.  I have some good news and bad news.  First the bad news.... I am not done with my Christmas cards!  Gasp!  The good news is that if you are in the same boat as me, Stamp, Ink, Paper has the challenge for you!

I have not felt well the last week so I opted for a super simple card using the awesome Gina K Designs Festive Foliage Stamp Set by Claire Brennan!   I absolutely adore this stamp set.  I used it to make several cards last year!

This was super easy.  I started with a top folding card base of Neenah Crest Classic Solar White cardstock in a 110# cover weight.  My top layer was Bristol Smooth Cardstock that I taped off with some Purple Tape by Thermaweb.    I used Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Peacock Feathers and Faded Jeans to inkblend within the open area.  After removing my tape, I put the front panel in my Misti and used sponge daubers to apply the Early Espresso (SU) and Mossy Meadow (SU) Inks.  Once stamped, I added a quickie glue pen over the open areas of the pine cones and added some fine sparkly glitter.  I heat embossed the sentiment in Mossy Meadow on the lower left side.  I thought about adding sequins but I loved the simplicity of this so I just left it as is.  

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Blessings, Tina
