BSS MONDAY IDEA

WELCOME TO THE BUFFALO STAMPS AND STUFF MONDAY IDEA.

TODAY, WE ARE GOING TO LOOK AT THE RESULTS OF USING THE NEW HERO ARTS HOLLY STAMP AND MATCHING SIZZIX EMBOSSING FOLDER SET.


This is how I used this great set.
On the green paper. I stamped the holly/swirl stamp using Versafine watermark ink only, then embossed using clear embossing ink. I then ran it through the matching Sizzix embossing folder.
On the white card stock, I inked the stamp with Adirondack, Meadow green ink. I then used a small corner of a baby wipe to remove the green ink from the berries. Using a water based marker, I colored the berries with bright red. I then stamped and when the ink was dry, ran it through the matching Sizzix embossing folder.

On the inside of the card, I just inked the stamp with the same Meadow green ink.
Added a sentiment by Wordsworth on white card stock and sponged around the
edges with the same ink.

My card recipe:

Stamp - Holly - Hero Arts, with matching Sizzix embossing folder set
Winter Marci by LA LA Land
Red dotted ribbon.
Snowflake die by Memory box (outside of card)
Snowflake punch, Martha Stewart (inside of card)
Green ink, Adirondack Meadow green
White glittered flower soft on the hat and pocket of the coat
Red sparkly Stickles added to the berries.
Marci, colored with Copic Markers

These Hero Art stamps and Sizzix embossing folder sets come in holiday and non- holiday designs. Love the look it creates, hope you can see the embossing in the picture.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Enjoy your Monday.  Until later............
