Ink To Paper
Release Countdown Day 2
September 12, 2020
Hi Friends and Happy Saturday! I hope you all enjoyed the countdown posts from yesterday, so much inspiration. Do you have a favorite yet? Well today you are in for another treat! There are lots of new products being showcased today and you can find all of the information on the Ink To Paper Blog. For my card today I am focusing the Tree Essential Set...I will be using the other products throughout the month so please check back in.
I started my card by ink blending a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock with Distress Oxide Ink in Mowed Lawn and Lucky Clover. I then ran it through my die cutting machine with the new On The Border Fir Branches Die. This die creates the most gorgeous frame, perfect for so many winter sets. I attached the frame to a piece of cardstock that had been ink blended with Faded Jeans ink. I spritzed both panels with water and set them aside to dry.
Next, I used the Tree Essentials Set to stamp my ornaments. For the dots and stripes I used the coordinating dies included in the set. I ran them through my die cutting machine with silver glittered paper and attached them to my ornaments. I think the little extra sparkle is a fun touch.
To finish my card, I stamped my sentiment in VersaMark ink and heat set it with silver embossing powder. I then attached the ornaments with foam adhesive and tucked in the strings and hook behind the openings.
This is such a great set, I know you will love it! Thanks for joining me, and I will be back tomorrow with Day 3 of the countdown.
Enjoy your day,
