This month we’re featuring some Christmas projects for you to get you excited for the upcoming holiday season!
Here’s what I created…
These projects were what my ladies created for class a couple of months back. Let’s take a look at the note card first…
This is a fun little card that’s fairly quick to create. I used one of the tags from the Tags & Tidings stamp set. I coloured in the images with the 2018 – 2020 In-Color Stampin’ Write Markers. A bit of Baker’s Twine & Silver Mini Sequin trim with a vellum starburst finishes off the focal piece.
Let’s have a closer look…
The background was embossed with the Softly Falling Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I lightly ran my sponge dauber with the some Champagne Mist Shimmer paint over the raised dots for a bit of sparkle.
Next we have the very bright Merry Christmas card…
I like to show my ladies versatility with their stamp sets, so I chose the Lined Alphabet set to create this fun card. The watercolouring technique for this card was lots of fun & easy to do. I love this technique because each card is unique! A tip – if you don’t want the colours to muddle up together (I didn’t mind this), be sure to allow drying time between each colour 😊
Let’s take a closer look…
I added sparkle to the card by splattering some Champagne Mist shimmer paint onto the card using a paint brush.
Last, we have a card with a slightly vintage feel…
The sentiment, label & mistletoe is from the Takeout Treats set. The background behind the focal piece was created using the collage stamping technique with stamps from the Timeless Textures & Picture Perfect Birthday sets. The die cut behind the sentiment is from the Petals & More Thinlits set. The combination of Merry Merlot & Tranquil Tide also add to the vintage feel of this card.
Let’s take a closer look at the focal point…
The splatter on this card was created with the Tranquil Tide Stampin’ Write Marker by flicking the brush tip end on the inside of the marker cap. I also added a bit of Wink of Stella on the mistletoe for some subtle sparkle, which unfortunately is a bit hard to see in the photo.
