Long Winter Berries


The Senior Design Team is back today with another round of beauties created with our October Release Stamp sets.  It's our chance to show them off some more while you can still purchase the October Stamp Bundle at a discount!  Today is the last day it's available and we don't want you to miss out!  


I wanted to show off this beautiful Winter Berries set again with all its colouring potential.  And because of it's long design, I thought a long and narrow card would work really well.  (These photos can be clicked on to see the pictures in a larger format).  I began by stamping the long berry spray with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Flourishes Classic White cardstock and trimming out the bottom of the leaves to do an out-of the box style with this gorgeous Spellbinders die (Radiant Rectangles).  I colored up the leaves and berries with Copics, and paired it with some Color Made Easy Evergreen Cardstock and Teresa Collins - Santa's List designer paper.  


A fun thing I found out is that this pretty Spellbinders frame (Fancy Tags Two) can be paired with our Perfectly Pierced Victorian Ovals die for perfect framing.  I inked the Sentiment in Memento Olive Grove ink.  A little accenting with some Teresa Collins Santa's List Sequins, some lace and seambinding fishtale ribbons and it's complete, and fits into a business size envelope.  




Now you can hop on over to see what beautiful things the rest of the Design Team has put together with this month's releases again:
