I made these two cards using the Holiday Button Bits stamps for two challenges this weekend, one from the lovely Lana who put a sketch up on our forum and one over at A Passion for Papertrey, both designed to kick start the holiday card making.
First off the sketch challenge, which to be honest I didn't follow well at all! The baubles are swinging at a very jaunty angle!
I am in love with Scarlett Jewel - it's such a deep rich colour. Here I used Lables 1 nestability dies and stamped the leaves in Spring Moss. Next time I think I'll use ripe advocado as it's a better contrast to the red.
I've also made a Santa version but the light was too poor to take a photo of it tonight!
On another note - is anyone else having a problem stamping the Holiday Button Bits with PTI ink? I just can't get the ink to "stick" and it looks awful. I've conditioned the stamps several items to no avail - any tips anyone?
