I struggle with finding "my style" of stamping. For example, I'm often torn between making "old-tyme-y," vintage look Christmas cards and clean, modern cards. In my indecision, I just make a variety and keep experimenting. How about you? What's your style, and how did you find it?
For my latest take on a vintage Christmas card, I found this very cool stamp from Stampendous, Saint Nick. The image is fairly large, so it's easy to stamp and use as the focal point for a card. For the card above, I stamped my image in SU!'s Always Artichoke (dark green) ink, and then cut it out with a Labels Framelits shape. I sponged the paper and edges to give the paper an aged appearance.
The sentiment is from SU! Bells & Boughs (a great set for making classic Christmas cards). I also used SU! background stamp, Netting, on my green layer. That is my "go-to" background stamp to add texture to an otherwise plain piece of cardstock.
Well, only a few months away to Christmas, so I'll keep plugging along. I've got another card to share later this week, so check back soon. What a fun break from Halloween crafts, but I guess I better start working on those, too! Happy stamping, friends!
