This is one of my Christmas cards for this year. I used the Beautiful Season stamp set - 122682 as well as the scallop punch to spotlight the watercolors against the black stamp on it's own. I used stampin' dimentionals to make the scallop pop and give it some dimention. I liked this card so much that I also made this for my group swap of Stampin' Up! demonstrators (weStamp). I really love this stamp set, it can be used in so many different ways. The first card is one that I made and then I also found some other cards made by others. Hope you enjoy the variety.
Here is a retirement card that I made for a friend. I hope you like it. It was so easy. I brayered the embossing plate with Marina Mist and ran it through my Big Shot on Vanilla card stock. I then stippled the edges with Early Espresso and mounted it on Early Espresso cark stock. Using an extra piece of Early Espresso card stock, I cut it down to the size of a ribbon and treated it as such. The using the scallop punch, I punched an extra swatch of Fan Fair DSP (Designer Series Paper). Stamped a Happy Retirement onto some vanilla card stock and adhered it all together with Stampin' Dimensionals foam dots. Then gave it some bling with Nuetral Designer Buttons and Pearl Basic Jewels.
