I love all of The Greetery products but their layering stamps are amazing – they are so easy to use and create such beautiful results! I just had to snatch up The Greetery’s Winter Sketches stamp set since I knew it would pair beautifully with Taylored Expressions’ Layer It Cardinal die set. I love the how the card turned out!
I created the lovely Cardinal with Taylored Expressions’ Layer It Cardinal die set using two shades of red cardstock and a black cardstock from my stash. Before adhering the darker red cardstock I inked the edges with Lawn Fawn’s Cranberry ink. Once all the layers were adhered I added a single dot of Ranger’s Glossy Accents to the Cardinal’s eye to create dimension.
To create the beautiful branch the Cardinal is sitting on I used The Greetery’s Winter Sketches stamp set. This is a gorgeous layering stamp set which is super easy to use! I inked each layer with the following colors Lawn Fawn’s Chili Pepper, Cranberry, Doe, and Walnut inks as well as Simon Says Stamp’s Goldenlocks and Laurel Green inks.
For the background, I inked the edges of a piece of Lawn Fawn’s Storm Cloud cardstock with Lawn Fawn’s Soot ink. Next, I applied Picket Fence Studios’ Snowdrop White Paper Glaze through Echo Park’s Warm and Cozy stencil. You can’t get this stencil anymore but Echo Park’s Jingle Bell Snowflakes stencil is similar. I gotta say I love this paste it’s gorgeous!
