Altenew • Stamp Focus: Night Before Christmas

Altenew Night Before Christmas. Cards by @craftwalks

Hi friends!

Today i want to share three cards with newly released Altenew Night Before Christmas Stamp Set  in focus.

 

This set has two Christmas trees with a sentiment already inside of them, along with several standalone holiday sentiments and a couple of stars.

For my first card I stamped one tree onto a white card base using Ocean Waves and Rocky Shore Dye Inks. I was using a stamp positioning tool for stamping and first stamped the tree with Ocean Waves, applied Rocky Shore on the sides of the tree and stamped over. And I did the same with the star, although in this case I shifted a bit stamp when was stamping with Rocky Shore.

This is a very basic and simple design. And this is the beauty of this set – it fits the bill perfectly when you need to create a quick card (or you’re mass producing them).  When it comes to holiday cardmaking sometimes we don’t have time for a card that takes 10 hours to make (as my cards usually are lol).

My second card is a bit more time consuming (just a bit), but this design will also work for mass production. ​

I made an A2 card base and stamped a background using a tree from the set, stamped diagonally using Velvet, Evergreen and Dark Chocolate Dye Inks. And I added several stars and liquid dots between them to fill the space.

I stamped the sentiment using Velvet Dye Ink onto a strip of white cardstock, then foam mounted it onto the card.

For the last card I decided to stretch this set a bit and use in a bit non obvious way. I masked a circle in the middle of a white card base and stamped tree pieces all around it using Starlight, Tide Blue and Turquoise Dye Inks. I then masked the area outside of the circle (in other words – I made a negative mask for it) an inked it using Tide Blue dye ink.

I white embossed the sentiment inside of the circle and added some dots using white pen. And I also added some dots around the trees using Artist Markers.

I hope you like my ideas of how you can use this set.

    Они такие лаконичные, но мне очень нравится! Штампинг творит чудесА, особенно синяя с елками по кругу – отличная идея! Надеюсь, мой такой уже скоро приедет…
