Happy Holidays

As I mentioned in an earlier blog post, I've been making Christmas cards for the Troops (I'm trying to get a box of them ready to donate) so I was excited to pull out the Raisin Boat Holiday Hang Ups stamp set this week. It's such a pretty set with an assortment of ornaments and that gorgeous branch. There are sentiments and other goodies in the set, too. And because there's no need for coloring, it makes it really fast and easy to put together a card with this set.

While I love the ornaments, I'm not overly crazy about the ink I used on the long ornament. I had heard great things about this ink so ordered some but with this first use, I'm not so sure I like it. It's Spectrum Noir Platinum Ink.

I think next time I might heat emboss the ornaments instead. Wouldn't that look gorgeous?

I even stamped the branch and an ornament on the inside of my card...

Great card Jeanette - the platinum ink looks great when the light hits it, but not so much when it doesn't.

Lovely holiday card. Your ornaments are beautiful. I know the platinum doesn't show up dramatically, but I do remember hanging those ornaments on our tree. Great job.
