Hello and Welcome!
Creative Stamping 27 has landed on the shelves and I really can’t wait to get my copy, because I absolutely loved working with the FREE Woodland Christmas themed stamps available with this issue. I cannot wait to see how my fellow contributors used these gorgeous stamps (I think they have been my favourite ones so far ;-))
I was asked to make 5 cards for this issue in the ever popular, Nordic Style stamped Christmas cards.
In the issue I talk you through how to make each card, and what sort of features to include to capture the Nordic Style. I have used only the FREE cover stamps to create the patterns (no design paper at all), some plain cardstock and minimal embellishments.
Over the next few posts I will reveal another card, for you. Today I’m giving you a closer look at my ‘Stag’ card that you can see featured on the front cover.
This card sums up the Nordic Style,
- the monochromatic (red/white colour scheme)
- the Stag of course
- and also the repeating patterns.
I created the repeating patterns using the various smaller stamps in the set, and also added some houndstooth ribbon, and in the magazine I have provided a step by step tutorial on how to achieve this look.
The ‘Stag’s Head’ stamp is a beauty, and is VERY fashionable and on-trend for christmas styling this year. Just looking at the social media interest in this issue when first glimpse of the cover was released yesterday (8th Oct 2015), I noticed you are all excited by this stamp – I hope you will share your cards on the CREATIVE STAMPING FACEBOOK page for us all to see.
