Christmas SAS 1 - Easy Events

Todays project was the first card from my first Christmas Stamp-a-Stack class for the year, in September & includes the branch stamp & greeting from the Easy Events stamp set.
I got the clear-mount version of this set so I could separate the sentiments from the images &  make this great set even more flexible.
As you can see, I repeat stamped the branch in celery on the card base. I also used it as a focal image on vanilla card - stamping the branch in chocolate, then the sentiment in cherry cobbler. the clear mount makes it really easy to position the greeting.
To add a little more detail, I coloured the berries & leaves using a blender pen & ink taken straight from the ink pad lid. This is such a quick & easy way to add a little more colour.
I also made this variation using the same pieces & used some dazzling diamonds to the berries to a little subtle bling....although a little too subtle to see in the pics apparently!
I think that's all I need to say, but if you have any questions, please ask. These cards could be easily translated for any number of events with a change of stamp or colour, so have a try & see what you come up with.
I'll be back with the second card from the September SAS next time.
Inky wishes, Di

These are lovely Di! I like how you can step them up with DD too! I don't have this set (and wasn't keen to get it!), but I think you have convinced me to get it in clear mount!

Great cards Di. Love the all over background stamping with the same image as the focal panel. :)
