Ornaments in Red

Hello, Hello!

I love today's Christmas card.  This was one of those stamps that I had to have, no questions asked.  Elegant yet simple~

This is one image stamped three times.  Almost CAS, but I wanted dimension on the final layer. 

I started by creating a simple template of the Draped Ornaments image from Technique Junkies.  I stamped the image on scrap paper and then loosely fussy cut it out.  This helped me to determine final placement of my images.  The first time I stamped the image off center to the left on the card base.  The second time I did a bit of masking of a few ornaments.  I also used the template to determine exact placement of the second stamped image.  This one was stamped off center to the right.
The third image was stamped and the ornaments colored with Copics.  Then the image was fussy cut out.  I adhered it to the card using dimensional tape.  I added light shadows to the background ornaments with grey Copics.
The sentiment is from the Gifts of Christmas stamp set.  I added some shimmer to the ornaments with Wink of Stella.

Well, what do you think?  Simple yet elegant.

  4. Mmm, not so simple I don't think, Lee Ann, with all that masking and fussy-cutting, but definitely, definitely elegant and beautiful! I can't take my eyes off it and now I must have that stamp, too!! Merry Christmas to me and Happy Holiday Hugs to you!! Darnell

  5. WOW! Lee-Ann is an amazing project. In the style of the CAS and I love him for it. At the same time, when I look at the card, I see how much attention and accuracy you had to put in this card. Thanks to the savings in colors you made the red elements just pop out of the card.
