Trinity Stamps Joyeux Noel for CAS Christmas Oct 19

 
Welcome friends to my blog post for the CAS Christmas Challenge Oct. 2019:
A winter scene! How fun! So many ideas...so little time.  But I have been wanting to play with my new Joyeux Noel 4 X 6 stamp set from Trinity Stamps:
This set just spoke to me for some reason. I just fell in love with this gentle deer looking up at the stars.
I started with Arteza 140 lb. cold press watercolor paper and stamped the deer, tree and largest star several times each using my MISTI and my Scrapbook.com Black Hybrid Ink (a non-bleeding ink with watercolors). I normally stamp at least 3 images so that I can practice coloring. Next, using my Scan 'n Cut I had all the images cut out at one time and chose not to have a white border. 

For this card, I pulled out my Kuretake Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and painted the images with a watercolor brush. I like them not only because they work beautifully, are vibrant and easy to transport, you can buy them in sets or individually. This way you can replace your most loved markers easily.
The card is a base of Lawn Fawn Kraft cardstock cut to 4 1/2" by 11" and scored at 5 1/2". For a CAS card there must be a lot of white space. In this case, I cut a piece of Neenah white cardstock with the Hero Arts Star Confetti Fancy Die. I did not plan to cut out the stars using my Big Shot, but just one pass. This way they did not cut all the way through. The gingham border was left over from a previous card post and I was happy to put it to good use! Right At Home's Gingham Background with black on cream cardstock, perfect. I adhered the 2 side gingham pieces to the white center and glued the whole panel onto Fun Foam which was cut to size. I love to use Fun Foam for it gives a nice even layer, perfect for mailing.
Hard to see, but I cut 2 pieces of white cardstock in the shape of snow hills and brushed Ranger's Distress Broken China along the top edges. I also ran these 2 pieces through Lawn Fawn's Just Stitching Double Rectangles. Some of the images were adhered flat, some popped with foam tape.

The sentiment is white heat embossed with Nuvo Detail Glacier White Embossing Powder. I have been using my Avery Elle Simple Sentiments die cuts to cut out sentiments for almost every card I make. I have such a hard getting even straight borders. They are perfect to use!
Such a pretty font "a star above that shines so bright" and the inside is "brings peace to all this holy night."
Lastly, the trees and nose of the deer were finished with Wink of Stella Glimmer Pen and the star with Stickles Icicle.

I hope you've enjoyed this card and take a look at the Trinity Stamps shop. The stamps work perfectly first time, no prepping! I am looking forward to working more with their products!
