Hi! Welcome to my blog. I’m Sara Levin the artful inker. Today, I’ve had a first play with one of my Holiday Catalog stamp sets — First Frost. I’ve got a lovely color combination to go with it. Let’s take a look at my First Frost with Buffalo Check card.
First Frost Bundle
Here’s the First Frost Bundle that I used for today’s card.
It contains the beautiful First Frost stamp set and the coordinating Frosted Bouquet framelits.
Both the stamps and dies are versatile — always a favorite feature for me!!
And when you purchase them together, you save 10%!

For my color combination,
and Merry Merlot.
First Frost with Buffalo Check Card
To begin, I used a Thick Very Vanilla base.
Then, I added a Very Vanilla layer stamped with Buffalo Check in Versamark
and heat embossed in Copper.
When heat embossing, I was careful to just melt the embossing powder.
With the fine lines in the check, I did not want to heat to the point of
causing them to blur together.
Using the smaller of the two flowers in the First Frost stamp set, I inked in Merry Merlot and
stamped at full strength.
Then, I stamped a second flower without re-inking.
Next, I inked the thistle image in Crushed Curry (yes, I know that’s not their real color).
So for my leaves, I played mixologist!
Starting with a piece of Very Vanilla, I brushed it with a wet Aqua Painter and then
sprinkled on Moss Green Brusho and brushed it around.
Then, I dipped my Aqua Painter in Mossy Meadow ink and brushed it into the mix
being careful to not saturate my cardstock.
Once the color was mixed to my satisfaction, I quickly heat set.
Using the Frosted Bouquet Framelits, I cut out the flowers, leaves and Sahara Sand berry clusters.
For the sentiment, I used the wonderful layered tag dies in the Frosted Bouquet Framelits.
Then, I stamped a sentiment from First Frost in Merry Merlot.
Thanks for stopping in today to see my First Frost with Buffalo Check card!
