Catherine Pooler | Christmas is Here

I'm back with more inspiration using the Nostalgic Season stamp set and coordinating dies from Catherine Pooler's This Christmas release. As I mentioned before, this is a 6" x 8" layering stamp set and there are so many beautiful, intricate stamps. You can do so much with this stamp set! Since my first card featured the bell and ornaments, I wanted to feature different stamps so I went with a mantle-style scene and used the stocking and Christmas tree. I also used the Garland Borders stamp set to frame my scene.

Once again, my colours were inspired by the Grandma's Attic colour combo. If you love both the Nostalgic Season and Garland Borders stamp sets, and the colour inspiration, you can purchase everything together in the Nostalgic Season Bundle and save! 

In this card, I stamped the stockings and tree in Juniper Mist before using the layering stamps to fill them in. On the stocking, I used Hot Tub, Clay Mask and Polished. On the front layer of the tree, I used Green Tea and on the back layer, I used Eucalyptus. I cut the Eucalyptus tree in half down the middle and used Bearly Art liquid glue to adhere it to the Green Tea layer.

I ombre stamped the garland in my MISTI stamping tool using Green TeaEucalyptus and Spruce. I originally planned to leave it plain with just the ombre greens but when I arranged the stockings and tree, it seemed to bare. To add colour, and to avoid actual colouring, I used the large circle for Rudolph's nose to stamp Hot Tub in the centres of the petal flowers and the smaller circle to stamp Polished in the berries. Then I used the two little leaf stamps from Feeling Peachy Sentiments to fill in the leaves and holly with Eucalyptus and Green Tea, respectively.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
