Brushos, Festival of Trees, Use them or Lose them

Use them or lose them #15 project #2

So this year I have decided to challenge myself to make a set of cards, scrapbook page or journal layout using each of my stamp sets as I know I have some I rarely use!

This week I already know these stamps are for keeps but pulled them out to play again… Festival of Trees.  Such fab stamps for easy christmas cards.  This time, in keeping with the Paperartsy blog theme of resist I decided to mix heat embossing with Brushos… They are a match made in heaven.

First the trees are heat embossed using white embossing powder and then it’s time for the colour explosion of Brushos.

I used aquamarine, purple and Violet for these two panels.  Then stamped the baubles in Elegant Eggplant and also the sentiment.  Then edged and mounted them onto grey and the patterned card blanks my friend gifted me.

Just gorgeous!

So yes these stamps are for keeps… wonder what next week’s play will bring…. oh and I am entering these into the Paperartsy resist challenge… no where near as exciting as all the inspiration provided by the DT but a resist project nonetheless! Go check out what’s been going on over on the Paperartsy blog.

Happy crafting!
