TCM: Christmas Lantern

Hi there!

Welcome back to another day of  previews for the new October stamp sets that will be available on October 21 through The Craft's Meow.  To see all the designers' samples with today's featured stamp set, please check out TCM's store blog.

Today's featured stamp set is Clare Buswell's Christmas Lantern - and you are going to LOVE this one!  First of all, Clare's lantern is huge!  And the sentiments are perfect too!  I love the details Clare adds to her sets.

Once again, I decided to go CAS with my card for today because that lantern needed to take center stage.  I stamped the image and sentiment on stone card stock and used my favorite grid line impression plate for texture.  Then, I sponged some light grey ink around the entire card front and added a white organdy ribbon to balance to top of the card a bit.  

My only pop of color was the red poinsettia flower that I colored and popped up with an older Prima leaf from my collection.  It's a bit hard to see, but I stamped the lantern glow with a very soft taupe/yellow ink for a subtle glow of light.

Great stamp sets make CAS cards a breeze, don't they?

Have a great rest of your day!

Great stamp sets do make CAS cards fun and fast. Great job on your card. I always like embossing on a card.
