Beautifull Season

Good Evening All

Hope you've had a great day so far, mine has been productive and enjoyable, which is good!

I thought that I'd show you a card and gift box that I've been making, actually this was done at my first workshop of the new Stampin' Up! year.  I absolutely fell in love with this stamp set as soon as I saw it in the catalogue as it's just beautifull for Christmas. 

For the card we used the image within the set, with the gorgeous little birdie!  Such a crisp, clear stamp and just gorgeous once done!  This was done with some shading.  I say shading, which it is but it's done using the "scraps" from the rubber that the stamp set comes in.  Yip - I'm at it again.  I have previously made background stamps using the rubber from the wood mount set's (cut up and stuck onto a block) and now if you peal the sticky background off the "scraps" you can actually place the section that the image came out of directly over the image and using a finger dauber get a shaded area!  Very clever use of the scrap and it would work well for so very many of the stamp set's, if not all.

For the gift box, we did a little masking as we did not want the bird on the box but only the very pretty holly leaves and berries.

Take a look and let me know what you think.  Any questions feel free to e-mail me and ask.
