Old and new inspiration

I have a large crafting stash. I admit it. I sometimes can’t help slipping that one extra stamp into my basket…
It means that some of my stash is packed away so I forget about it. I love it when I rediscover something I have packed away, because I never leave it undiscovered for long.

Hero Arts Holly

For this card I used a post-it to mask off the bottom portion of the card and coloured it with Barn Door Distress Ink. I then used Versamark ink to stamp my rediscovered stamp – the Hero Arts Holly Flourish. I added gold embossing powder and then stamped a sentiment from – you guessed it, the Clearly Besotted Signature Christmas stamp set.

My second card uses a new favourite, the Avery Elle Laurels stamp set.  I used this stamp set to make this card but wanted to create a Christmassy version.

Christmas Laurels

I switched up the ink colours to red and gold, but otherwise the card is the same.  The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted’s Pretty Poinsettia stamp set.
