Join in the fun every day at taheerah-atchia.com to see what special surprises await behind the door!
I love creating for the holidays but I also wanted to play along with this brand new floral set that I ordered and so I paired up a gorgeous floral set that works any time of the year with a holiday sentiment and a holiday color combo as well as a few Christmas accents to make this pretty card design. Today’s sponsored prize is My Sweet Petunia and I just love using their Misti! It’s absolutely perfect when stamping complex layered images such as this beautiful Altenew rose, the Build-a-Flower Rose stamp and die set. I’ve been wanting this set since I first saw it online and it seems like every time I went to order it, it was sold out. Super popular and you can see why. It’s positively stunning! I’ve stamped it in Altenew inks for gorgeous rich color. I purchased the Altenew ink cubes in various colors a few months ago and just can’t get enough of these ink pads. I’m slowly collecting them all. I’ve linked the sets I used on this card below at the end of the post in the supply lists if you’re interested.
I’ve also used a gorgeous holly die set from Pretty Pink Posh and die cut it from gold foil paper and the lovely script and block font sentiment, happy holidays is from MFT Stamps. With this design I wanted to show you how to take your every day stamps and use them for the holidays. It’s as easy as color combo, sentiment and a few small details!
Quick Tip: The Misti makes stamping complex images so much easier! I wouldn’t want to try lining up these stamps without it!
