Layering stamps ....

..... Hi, good afternoon! Today is simply flying by. I've been busy tidying in my craft room - seem to be doing that a lot at the moment!! However, I did find time to play with some of my new stamps from Altenew. I've made a very clean, simple sympathy card:

Stamps: Altenew - Majestic Mistletoe, Heartfelt Sentiments
Inks: Gina K - Black Onyx, Christmas Pine, Fresh Asparagus, Jelly Bean Green, Applemint, Lemon Drop
Accessories: White Lustre Card; Gina K Card - Fresh Asparagus


I'm submitting this card to Less is More - LIM#352 where they want to see Stamp Layering, and also to Cardz 4 Guyz - C4G#181 where the theme is Sympathy/Thinking of You/Remembrance. I need a few more sympathy cards for my stash and I always find it easier to make them in advance of actually needing them!

This is about as easy as it gets. I started by stamping the sentiment in black. Next, I built up the layers of this lovely mistletoe branch - so easy in my MISTI. Actually, it would be easy even without the MISTI, the stamps are so easy to line up. I used several shades of green to make the leaves and the berries are made from lemon, pale green, and black. On the inside, I cut a mat layer of dark green card and stamped another branch and greeting on the white panel.

That's all for now.

Super sympathy card Deborah, I agree this type of card is always easier when you don't need to make one in a rush.
