This time of year is always exciting to me, since I love to see all the new Fall and Christmas themed products that craft companies have developed. When I saw Reverse Confetti’s Lanterns stamp set I adored the images but was in love with the versatility of this cute set. This set includes both Fall and Christmas images and if you purchase the Reverse Confetti’s Lantern Additions you’ll have an additional Christmas image and an image that could be used for Spring. Such an awesome stamp set!
I started by stamping several of the images from the Lantern’s stamp set along with the bow for Lantern Additions stamp set onto Neenah Solar White, 110 lb, cardstock with Gina K Designs’ Jet Black Amalgam ink and then colored them using Copic markers.
To create the background, I die cutting a piece of white cardstock with Avery Elle’s Oval Burst die. Next, I die cut a frame from Tonic Studios’ Opera Red Mirror cardstock using two rectangle dies from my stash. I mounted the Opera Red frame directly onto a white card base and then adhered the Oval Burst panel to it. Before I adhered any of the images, I used Hero Arts’ Soft Yellow Shadow ink to add a soft warm glow around where I plan to place the candles and lantern.
Sentiment and Finishing Touches
For the sentiment, I used one I had already created with The Ton’s Easy Expressions stamp set. This stamp and die set is AMAZING – it creates several sentiments all at once! I stamped the sentiment with Lawn Fawn’s Soot and Pinkfresh Studio’s Clementine inks. I also used the Easy Expressions die set to cut a piece of Tonic Studios’ Opera Red Mirror cardstock which I backed behind the sentiment like a shadow.
To add a few finishing touches, I went over the leaves with Nuvo’s Midas Touch Aqua Shimmer pen and Nuvo’s Sunlit Sienna Aqua Shimmer pen. Next, I added shimmer to the bow with a Spectrum Noir Sparkle pen. Lastly, I added a layer of Ranger’s Glossy Accents to the candle flames.
Thanks for spending some time with me today. I hope you have a wonderful day and stay safe!
