Good Tidings of Great Joy

Good Tidings of Great Joy was going to be a tag, but when I purchased the Dies by Dave “Cross-Stitched” Banner Pennant Die Set, the beauty of the Die warranted its own card.

Using Stampin’ UP! Good Tidings Stamp Set was a challenge because all these stamps are two-step stamping. Are you asking yourself, “What is two-step stamping”? Inside the stamp case are two stamps for each image. For this card, I used a lighter color (Emerald Envy) and (Old Olive) stamp pads for the darker image stamp. Then I used (Garden Green) for the lighter image stamp. If you look at the two stamps closely, the darker image is flat and the lighter image has some texture. The same is true for the other stamps in this set.

The Christmas Tag was used with the same set. I just love the effect of the two-step stamping.

If you have any questions, please post a note and I will respond.

Getting into the Christmas Spirit a tad early.


May the gift of peace, love, and happiness…
