Warm & Cozy Fireplace

Hi Bloggers,

Today I have another card to share using the Tatty Button Fireplace stamp from Creative Expressions.

I stamped the image using jet Black Archival ink and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I coloured in using Cosmic Shimmer Matt Drawing Inks plus the Pearl Shine from the Metallics set. I cut the image out using the largest of the Spellbinders Fleur de Lys Squares dies.

I stamped the poinsettia stamp from the Tatty Button Poinsettias set in Jet Black Archival and embossed with clear powder. I did this 3 times. I coloured the poinsettias in with Marigold Cosmic Shimmer Matt Drawing Ink and coloured the centres with Ancient Copper Cosmic Shimmer Mica Drawing Ink. I cut them out and went round the edges with a black promarker.

I stamped the sentiment with Jet Black Archival and embossed with clear powder. I cut it out using an oval nestie. I inked around the edge with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I also pierced around the embossed line. I added some Tropic Wine Vintage Ribbon securing with some copper brads.

The backing papers are from My Mind's Eye. I pierced around the edge of the brown card with my Tim Holtz Ruler and my pricking tool before mounting on to ivory card.

Hope you like the card.
