I still have not finished the squirrel card I was working on. But I do have a holiday card to share today. The dies used are from WPlus9 - the Quilts Cut 2 dies and Pretty Patches Tree die.
One thing I discovered is that Tsukineko's Memento inks actually work well with solid stamps. I used Bamboo Leaves for the tree and Rhubarb Stalk for the heart. One thing I did do with the little heart stamp, I swiped the Rhubarb Stalk ink pad across the solid heart stamp and then stamped it out. I did the same with the tiny rectangle stamp that is for the trunk of the tree, using Rich Cocoa. It did not leave those spots that dye based inks often leave. I used the Bamboo Leaves on the Pretty Patches Tree stamp and just tapped the Dew Drop on the stamp and it did not leave those spots.
Another shot of the card and you can see that I applied Glossy Accents on the heart to give it a little shine. The oval piece is a die cut piece from the handle of PTI's Front & Center #1 Die.
Have a good week and see you next Monday. Thanks for stopping by!
