 Seasonally Scattered Card with Thumping

 

I was attracted to this stamp set, Seasonally Scattered, my very first glance through the Holiday Catalogue. I always look for sets that can be used beyond Christmas like this one. Over the next few days, I’ll share a couple of other samples that can be used for other occasions during the year.

I decided to use the thumping technique for this card. I often fall back to this technique because it’s a fast way to take a stamped image up a notch.

 

Simply ink up your image – I used Bermuda Bay. Then using the thicker tip of a marker gently tap ink randomly over the ink. It’s best to use markers that are darker in colour than the ink. Repeat with a second marker. For this card I used Lost Lagoon and Island Indigo for a subtle look. Experiment with contrasting colours like I did here on the maple card. Huff on the stamp to re-moisten and stamp as usual.

I added a few Frosted Sequins as an accent and then layered the image on Bermuda Bay and Brushed Silver card stocks to finish.

 

If you are looking for a stamp set for Christmas and beyond, I recommend Seasonally Scattered, a personal favorite.
