Welcome back to another month of fabulous projects by the Global Stampers. This month we’re featuring our favourite products from the soon to be released Holiday Catalogue. The catalogue goes live on Wednesday, 5 September 2018. If you haven’t received a copy and would like one, be sure to contact me for your complimentary copy 😊
I decided it would be nice to show you a non-Christmas project made using a Christmas set. Here’s my 3″ x 3″ note cards set I made for a recent swap at an extended Team Meeting.
And here are the individual note cards…
I love how versatile this set is and the tiny tags & elements are just the cutest too! I have to confess though, I found it easier to create these cards by cutting up the stamp 😱😉
Shocking, I know! But I know I’ll be more likely to use it as individual stamps rather than a full stamp, so I figured, why not 🤷😊
Let’s have a look at the individual cards. First, we have the birthday card…
I love the Granny Apple Green combined with Real Red & Blueberry Bushel. Water colouring is such an easy technique to get more from your ink pads, so many different shades.
The sentiment was punched out with the 1″ circle punch, which makes it so easy especially if you don’t want the hole that the die cuts out. The “happy birthday” in the background is from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous set.
Let’s take a look at the For You card now…
I used some washi tape to mask off the Christmas tree & swirls image before inking the stamp. The tricky bit is to remember to peel away the washi tape BEFORE stamping, ask me how I know haha 😅
I coloured the pearls with the Dark Calypso Coral Blends and used them to fill in the gap left behind. The “for you” in the background is from the Itty Bitty Greetings set.
Now, let’s look at the Warm Wishes card…
I think this card is handy for just about any occasion! The splatter image in the background is from the Waterfront set.
I love the simplicity of these note cards and how quick it was to create them (especially after I cut up the images hehe ). Mass producing 20 sets didn’t take too long either, maybe except for the drying process. But you can always speed that up with the help of the heat tool 😉
I hope you enjoyed my projects & they’ve inspired you to create alternative projects using the exciting new products from the new Holiday Catalogue.
