Stampin’ Creative Blog Hop casing Lyssa Zwolanek

Hello and welcome to this month’s Stampin’ Creative blog hop. Currently you are visiting me ! Gina Connor aka Emerald Kreations.If you are following along on the hop , you will have arrived with me from the lovely Eimear  This month’s theme is Casing and we have had the privilege of Casing the very talented Lyssa Zwolanek. I must admit I am very nervous in casing such a talented lady, I hope I do you justice Lyssa !

So below is the project which I thought I would like to Case from Lyssa’s blog, it has a design which you could interpret with many stamp sets.

So would you like to see my “case” of Lyssa’s card? I used the beautiful stamp set , Season like Christmas. I love the two tone of the Christmas tree which you achieve by using the two step stamping technique.

This stamp set is a great set as it includes verses as well as images. I used Chocolate Chip card for the base card and Old Olive DSP from the Merry Little Christmas pack. To achieve the two tones of green in the tree, I stamped the more solid image with Old Olive ink, I stamped it on to a piece of scrap paper and then stamped it onto the Whisper White card. Next I stamped the lighter tree image with Old Olive ink and stamped it directly onto the already stamped image, thus giving two different shades of green. I then stamped the trunk with Chocolate Chip ink and the verse, which I then cut out with the stitched framelit circle. To add a little bit of sparkle, I added a strip of Gold Foil Strip and some Gold Metallic Thread.

I hope you have enjoyed your visit with me. If you would like to continue hopping, please click on the “Next” button below and it will take you to the lovely Louise, who will have something fabulous to share with you.

See you all again soon

    Beautiful cards, both of them. I particularly love the placement of your sentiment in a circle of cardstock. Very beautiful x

    I spotted that card on Lyssa’s blog – isn’t it lovely? you’ve made such a gorgeous version of it, totally unrelated – just shows the versatility of the layout
