Inspired By Stamping: Tree of Seasons


Hi, friends!  It is time for another release for the Inspired By Stamping store, and Joanna has some GORGEOUS sets for you this time around!  Today we are featuring the Tree of Seasons set.  Take a peek at my card...


I decided to do a bunch of colored heat embossing using the stamps from the Tree of Seasons set.  I heat embossed the tree image first, then the bird and ribbon.  I decided to emboss them onto patterned paper to have my scene "ready made" for me. ;)  Some silver glitter paper was used for snow, and a sentiment from the Festive Greetings set was added over the top after it was stamped onto vellum.  Some brads and a single red rhinestone were all that was needed to finish off the focal panel because of all the glittery goodness from the embossing.


This card is very mail friendly because I kept it pretty flat and without too many embellishments.  I really like the way it turned out--the heat embossing didn't fail me this time! ;)  I'd love to hear what you think in the comments below! :)


Thank you so much for stopping by, friends!  I'll be back tomorrow with another card using *NEW* stamps from Inspired By Stamping!  For more inspiration, make sure to head over to Joanna's blog for a list of those who are crafting today!  Until tomorrow, HUGS and happy stamping, friends! :)

I haven't got glitter embossing powder and I imagine it's a bit more temperamental than the standard EP but, as well as shine, it gives a bit of texture, which works on well on the tree. Great card!
