December Stamp of the Month and Fresh Cut Background Stamp

December Stamp of the Month and Fresh Cut Background Stamp

Hi there! Daniel here with a card featuring the December 2018 Stamp of the Month and Brutus Monroe / Unity Stamp Collaboration called Freshly Cut. 
You can watch the live "making of" video here: 

I used an hombre technique to stamp the background of an panel using Macchiato, Wagon, Terracotta and Sugar Cone Surface Inks.  I masked off a section in the lower third of the panel with tape and inked it up with Machiato ink.

I stamped the Christmas light stamp four times on a piece of cardstock using Macchiato ink. Then I Copic colored them with E34 and E51, leaving the centers white and blending the colors out to the edges.  I grabbed my Upper Case Alphabet Die Set and cut out the N, O, E and L from the centers of each bulb.  Using my B|M Fussy Cutting Scissors, I cut out each bulb.

I glued a piece of scrap paper behind each of the bulbs and then colored the positive letter from the die cuts with an E54 Copper Copic.  I glued the letters into the negative space on each bulb. 

I popped up each bulb with some foam tape and adhered them along the front of the Macchiato inked strip.  I adhered the entire panel to an A2 size Neenah Solar White card base.  I finished it off by adding some Spectrum Noir Sparkle to the front of each bulb.
