Brand Ambassador Inspiration - More than one foliage

Bonjour !

It's Izzy here with three inspiration cards that I'm combining with the current challenge over at Less is More. It's our Recipe week and the theme is More than One Foliage.

 Uniko being our sponsor I wanted to give even more love to my Uniko stamps. Christmas being in only two months, I thought it was the perfect occasion to go on with my Christmas cards.

I first die cut a bauble shape and with a pencil I softly drew its outlines on a double white card. Then, inside the outlines, I stamped the foliage of different sets : Background Builders: Vines Winter Additions and Rustic Wreath.

To finish, I stamped the sentiment which comes from the set Most Wonderful. Then I erased the pencil line around the bauble and with metallic gel pens I coloured the bauble ring and the twine.

For my second card I get inspired by a Birthday card I received recently (see here). On the original one, the leaves are doodled ones, but I'm not that good in this art. On a watercolour paper, I first made three square with a brush and Distress inks (Tumbled glass, Faded jeans, Shaded lilac). 

Once dry, I stamped the different foliage in black and for a more festive look I coloured the images with some gold paint. Here I used the Season of Beauty and Rustic Christmas sets. To finish I stamped the sentiment.

For my last card, I combined three different colours of embossing powder : copper, gold and silver. Together with black card stock I find this combo very elegant. So I cut a square in a black card stock and I stamped and copper heat embossed the Large Background Sketched Foliage set.

Then on a Vellum paper I stamped and heat embossed in gold and silver the foliage of the Winter Botanicals : Sweet Broom.

I foam mounted the black panel on the double white card. I fussy cut the two brooms, I coloured the berries in red with a metallic gel pen. To finish, I stamped in red the sentiment from Simply Said Block Christmas and I foam mounted it on the card.

Now here is a sneak peek of the card I made for the Less is More challenge, still using Uniko foliage stamps...

I hope that my cards inspired you to prepare your Christmas cards stash and/or to come and play along at Less is More.

Thanks so much for visiting today. Have a fabulous weekend and stay safe and get crafty !
