Good morning! I am excited to introduce the next exclusive Stamptember collaboration set, Merry Mistletoe, from Avery Elle! Simon Says Stamp’s exclusive collaboration stamp sets are available for a limited time only – while supplies last. Once these sets sell out they will not be restocked again. So if you love this set I highly recommend placing your order soon!
Here’s what I created!
I love this pretty mistletoe image! I decided to keep it simple and stamped it on watercolor paper with versamark and heat-embossed it with gold tinsel embossing powder. Then I used peeled paint, forest moss, and antique linen distress ink to loosely watercolor the leaves and berries. I used aged mahogany and festive berries distress ink for the bow and let it dry. Once it was totally dry I wet the background and added aged mahogany and festive berries distress ink to the background using a wet on wet technique.
After the distress ink dried I flicked the background panel with water to add lots of droplets across the panel. Once the water droplets dried I stamped the sentiment with versamark and heat-embossed it with white embossing powder. I also stamped the mistletoe on vellum and heat-embossed it with the same gold tinsel embossing powder. I added a layer of spectrum noir clear sparkle to the vellum and then fussy cut the entire image. I added drops of glue strategically behind parts of the vellum and then adhered it offset over the watercolored image. I left some of the vellum unattached which added a little extra dimension. Finally I added a few green and metallic gold sequins to finish the card with a little extra sparkle!
I hope this gives you some inspiration for this pretty Merry Mistletoe set! Remember, these won’t last long so head over to Simon Says Stamp and snag yours now!!
