2016 Holiday Card Series - Day Five

Hi there stampers!  Today is the final project for my 2016 holiday card series and I decided to go out with a bang by creating a cute shaker ornament.  I used a stamp set from Hampton Art that I got for a steal from Michael's and watercolored the adorable snowman images using my Zigs.  


I created the shaker by using my Circle Framelits from Stampin Up with some thick whisper white, pool party, and fun foam.  The shaker bits are some fantastic sequins from Target that were only $1!

2016 Holiday Card Series - Day Four

Happy Hump Day and welcome to my video/card for Day Four of my 2016 Holiday Card Series.  Today's card features a watercolor wash background along with some emboss resist technique.  


I started with a piece of Canon XL Watercolor paper and stamped the snowflake images from Flurry of Wishes by Stampin Up using Versamark ink.  I heat set the images with some Wow Simmer Embossing Powder.  Next I created a watercolor wash background using Kuretake Gansai Tambi Water Colors.  I used several colors of blue and a purple color to create the background.  The heat embossed images resisted the watercolor which created this gorgeous background.


Next I added some ink splatters and stamped the sentiment using more Versamark ink which I heat set with some Wow Platinum embossing powder.  I then adhered this panel with some fun foam onto a top folding A2 card base made from smoky slate cardstock that was colored with my Spectrum Noir Sparkle pen.

2016 Holiday Card Series - Day Three

Happy Saturday stampers!  Today I have a video and card for Day Three of my 2016 Holiday Card Series.  Today's card features the inlay die cutting technique along with using border dies to create a unique background for your card.

I started with this cute winter scene die and cut it out of some pool party and whisper white cardstock.  I then inlaid the pool party negative pieces into the whisper white die cut to give this cool inlay die cut focal piece for my card.


I then created the fun background using some Lawn Fawn border dies and ran those through my big shot onto a piece of old olive cardstock several times moving the die along the panel to give this gorgeous background.

I adhered the die inlay piece onto some vellum cut using another Lawn Fawn die from their stitched rectangle die set.  This was adhered onto the card panel which was adhered to a top folding A2 card base made from some pool party cardstock.  I heat embossed the sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes onto a piece of cherry cobbler and ahdered that to the card front.  The entire card was sprayed with some Sheer Shimmer Spritz.

2016 Holiday Card Series - Day Two

Hi there stampers and happy Monday!  I have another quick and easy holiday card for you today that could be mass produced.  I got this great Hampton Artnstamp set with the coordinating die from Michael's a couple weeks ago on sale for $3.50.  I'm not sure if it was a mistake on their part but I am not going to complain about getting that kind of deal.  
I started with a piece of whisper white cardstock that I embossed using the On Point Embossing Folder from Stampin Up.  I then used my brayer to apply mossy meadow ink on the background.  I added some ink splatters of mossy meadow and gold using my acrylic block.  

I then stamped the deer onto some crumb cake with early espresso ink and cut the image out using the coordinating die.  I heat set the sentiment in white embossing powder onto some cherry cobbler cardstock.  I die cut a stitched circle out of some birch wood from Altnew and then used the Pretty Pines Thinlits to die cut out the pine needle images.  I adhered all these together to create the focal point for my card.  The entire panel was adhered to an A2 top folding card base made from mossy meadow cardstock.

2016 Holiday Card Series - Day One

Happy Holiday stampers!  Today kicks off my 2016 holiday card series featuring videos and projects for the Christmas holiday season.  Today's card is a quick and easy card featuring several die cuts from several Stampin Up thinlit sets. 

I embossed a piece of whisper white cardstock with the Softly Falling Embossing Folder from Stampin Up.  I then cut out the different dies shapes using several thinlit sets:  Swirly Scribbles, Birds & Blooms, and Pretty Pines.  I stamped the sentiment from the Christmas Pines stamp set using Versamark ink onto some crumb cake cardstock and heat embossed it using gold emboss powder.  I then cut down the sentiment and adhered to the front of the card with dimensionals.


The entire panel was adhered to an A2 top folding card base made out of real red cardstock.  The red card base really helped to make the bird pop.  To see more details on how to make this card, please take a peek at the video I made.
