Artful Inkables New Release: Peaceful Wishes

Just in time for the holiday season -Kristin has released this beautiful new stamp set called Peaceful Wishes.I love how you can stamp silhouette stamps right on pretty designer paper and they show off so well. These green and brown dp's are from the Basic Grey Sultry Paper pad. I love how it looks sanded which I think gives great dimension to the card without having to layer or color!

I used all of the stamps in the Peaceful Wishes set on this 5x5 card - the two deer, the framed poinsettia bloom and pine cone, and the wonderful sentiment. The ribbon is a beautiful two toned textured ribbon and is just one of the great ribbons that Kristin is now carrying in her web store so be sure to check the ribbons out too!

I added gold ice stickles to the antlers, the pine cone and the poinsettia to complement the gold trim on the ribbon. I cut the sentiment with my Spellbinders tag die and adhered it with foam dimensionals.

Since it is a larger than standard card (5x5) I made and envelope for it using a template I bought at The Paper Source. I stamped one of the deer on the front lower corner of the envelope.

Thanks for coming by today ..... I'd love to hear what you think of this new stamp set!
