Today I have a Christmas card to share with you featuring a very unique stamp set from The Ton. The Ton had a mini release of 4 clear stamp sets this month. Effie's designs for this release were inspired by her own stamp carving art (If you want to see Effie's hand-carved stamps, visit her on instagram @craftyeffie.) The new holiday stamps are very unique and different from other stamps from The Ton.
|Folk Art Christmas Tree|
|Vintage Christmas Block|
For today's card I used Vintage Christmas Block.
I went with a vintage look like the name of the stamp says.
I stamped the block image on a beige cardstock (Almond Cream from Bazzill) in brown ombre using Found Topaz and Dark Roast dye ink. The black mark on the dark brown part wasn't intended. I tried the stamp using black StazOn on Yupo before I made this card, and the stamp wasn't perfectly clean :). It was an accident but I liked it. I colored the tiny images using Polychromos colored pencils, added some glitter using Spica Glitter pens. I outlined the sentiment and drew the snow on the letters using a white gel pen. It's hard to see in the pic but the letters have glittery coat of a clear glitter pen. To finish off the card I added a thin frame cut from a gold glitter paper.
I don't know why but the close up picture looks a bit bluish :)...
This is a holiday stamp set with which you could create a set of Christmas cards in minutes. Some metallic or glittery heat embossing of this block image and you have a festive Christmas card in hands!
