STAMPlorations CAS ~ December Challenge Reminder Post

We're halfway through the month of December. Have you had an opportunity to join the current challenge at STAMPlorations CAS.

Here's my card

I started with an A2 kraft panel. I stamped the evergreen bough using STAMPlorations' Christmas Bell Medley stamp set and Hero Arts Emerald Green ink. I did both first generation and second generation stamping. In case you're not familiar with second generation stamping, it's stamping the image a second time without adding more ink to the stamp. In other words, I applied ink to the stamp and stamped the image twice, moving to a slightly different location. In this way, some of the boughs seem closer (darker) and some lighter (farther away). To me, it adds more interest and some dimension to the stamping. I then stamped the bells from the same stamp set on a scrap of white cardstock with Versamark ink and heat embossed them with gold embossing powder. I added color with Copic markers C5, R29, Y17 and fussy cut them. I heat embossed also with gold embossing powder the sentiment, from the same stamp set. I used some gold thread for the ornament strings to complete the card.
