I am having fun playing with this beautiful set, ” Night in Bethlehem ” this week. I am hosting a 2 day Stampin’ Up! Craft event this weekend featuring this set.The stamp set includes wonderful images along with beautiful wording which can be used on the front of cards as well as on inserts.
I made this card this afternoon and I just had to share it with you.
I used our Stampin’ markers to colour directly onto the stamp, Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Basic Grey and Old Olive. I then layered them onto Whisper a White card and adhered directly onto the Whisper White base card. The wording is stamped in Basic Bkack ink and set in the corner. ” Clean and Simple ” is exactly how I describe this card.
When using this technique, a little tip that I would like to share with you is, when you have coloured all the image in with the various colours, ” huff” your breathe onto the stamp before you stamp it onto the card. This way , you are re moisturising the ink which you have applied with the markers . Just in case the first colour has started to dry a little while you have been applying the other colours.!
This set includes some wonderful framelits, which are pretty amazing on their own . The detail is amazing ! Today I played with the stamps , so tomorrow I will combine the stamps and the framelits ! I really do love pulling the projects together for my events and classes.
Thank you for visiting my blog , see you again soon .
