Holly Swirls Card Set ~ Red Rubber Designs DT

     Stamping is a great way to make multiple cards, so I created this set featuring the Holly Swirls Unmounted Rubber Stamp from Red Rubber Designs, which includes four different holiday sentiments. 

     The colors and background were inspired by this months color challenge at Lindy's Stamp Gang.

     The first thing I did was to sprinkle a sheet of 12" X 12" white cardstock with course salt, which will make four cards.  Then I sprinkled with some Magical Powders (Rizzo's Rowdy Red, Greased Lightnin' Green, and Sassy Sapphire) and sprayed with water. The card below shows a heavier use of the salt, which I brushed off after drying, and when combined with the Magicals leaves a beautiful effect that's impossible to duplicate, making each card one of a kind. 

     With so much color, I went with LSG Purely White Embossing Powder along the edges and punchwork, and to stamp the Holly Swirls and sentiment for snowy, frosty look. 

     Then I used a paintbrush and water with my Magical Powders to color the holly and leaves, which really brought out the design. 

     The inside was stamped with the Christmas Blessings Unmounted Rubber Stamp using Memento (Lady Bug) Ink, and my wish to you as well. 

Thanks for looking, and shop Red Rubber Designs for a great variety of Winter & Christmas Stamps
