Hello! Today is post 2 of 3 this week featuring the Petite Places: Holiday Lane stamp set from Papertrey Ink! (you can see my card from Monday here and then I'll have an ornament to share on Friday!)
you can see the glossy accents on all of the peppermints and candy canes and kind of see the wink of stella on the roof lines here: shiny!
I have to admit, I'm a little impressed that I could (mostly) line all of these tiny little stamps up enough to stamp that background, since I was stamping all over the paper, the MISTI wasn't really going to help here so I just stamped this with an acrylic block. Anyways, there was a lot of stamping, but it was a pretty simple card. I started off by drawing a light pencil line across a piece of Neenah cardstock cut to 4 1/8" x 5 3/8", about a half inch or so up from the bottom. I used that line as a guide to start stamping my houses, I stamped each row of houses and then the roofs before moving to the next row (i used the chimney as a spacing reference so i needed the roof stamped to see where to put the next row). After the houses were all stamped I went back and stamped all of the little details, the door and windows, the candy canes, and all of the peppermints. I tied a piece of baker's twine around the stamped panel and then mounted it on a blue card base with foam adhesive. I die cut the tag out of Pure Poppy cardstock and embossed the sentiment in white embossing powder. I tied the tag on the card with the twine and added a piece of foam adhesive underneath it to keep it in place & I added three enamel dots to the bottom of the tag. I finished the card off with some Wink of Stella shimmer on the roofs and glossy accents on all of the peppermints!
Bree and I are off to a petting zoo today, wish us luck!
