Golden Christmas

Hello, Everyone! 
I hope you are all having a blessed Sunday.  Church and lunch with a friend are on my agenda, then home to blog hop with Sweet n Sassy Stamps!
Welcome to day 2 of our September feature Blog Hops!  
Today we're featuring Korin's sweet new Magic of Christmas stamp set.

I bought some gold leaf at a stamping convention last month and have been waiting for the right stamp to use it with.  This was the perfect image!  I inked up the fun tree with black craft ink, then coated it with Sticky Powder, heated it and then added the multi-colored gold leaf; the products are from QKR Stampede.   I must admit I have never used gold leaf before, but when I tried these products at the convention, I was sold!  
I love the various colors of this gold leaf- this one is gold, orange'y' gold, red, and purple.  When I burnished the gold leaf onto the Christmas tree, I ended up with purple at the top of the tree,  I liked how this stands out, so I made purple my accent color.  
Here are the details for this fun stamp set-

  • Stamp set includes 2 images and 4 sentiments
  • Set measures approximately 4" x 3"
  • The tree image measures approximately 2" x 2 1/4
  • Designed by Korin Sutherland
  • Stamp set - $9

Check out some of the fabulous samples made by our talented DT in the thumbnails below.
