New Wonders Hostess Stamp Set
When I first saw this stamp set, and some of the samples in the catalog and on Pinterest, I thought this set was absolutely adorable, has angels, and a beautiful font. However, I also thought that coloring the precious angels would be time consuming and difficult. Boy, was I wrong!! The first card I created (which will be in an upcoming blog post) was so easy and fun! Just like that, and I am completely hooked on this stamp set. It’s always wonderful when a stamp set turns out to be so versatile!
One thing led to another, and I wound up trying out this angels for Christmas cards. Here are the two versions, and the inside for both are the same:
Christmas in July
The Old Olive Christmas DSP has retired, as has the Real Red ribbon. However, those two colors gave me my color palette. These cards would also be adorable using Old Olive and Real Red cardstock. As I am typing this, I am thinking that I can use Old Olive for the background and emboss it with the Tufted TIEF. Cuteness overload! I would also emboss the Real Red mat using the Subtle TIEF. Now, I know what my next pair of Christmas cards will be! Since I try to do something at least a little bit different for each Christmas card, these would be perfect!
Using both light and dark Old Olive and Real Red, I happily colored the angels clothes. I used the So Saffron blends, both light and dark, for the angels’ hair. Wink of Stella Clear is on their wings, and Wink of Stella Gold is on the pen tips. I colored the pen with the light and dark Crumb Cake blends.
The Making Christmas Bright stamp set carried over into the current catalog and, I think, it completely matches the angels.
