Happy Tuesday everyone!
I'm going to start off my post today by showcasing this gorgeous stamp illustrated by Kelly Taylor. I've loved her stuff for years and I'm so happy to finally colour up one of her stamps. This one is called Candy Cane Christmas and it is not the only one in this release! I opted for classical Christmas colours and made a fun background for the card. I love making those!
The background is made up of a green distressed background with the Slim Line Plaid One stencil on top before using the Hark, the Angels Sing to add the text on the background. Then I had fun making some splatter with the new Liquid White Snowflake Paper Splatter Watercolor. Then used some of the lush green sequins from the Holiday Stockings sequin mix for the finishing touches.
I particularly like how the bow turned out. Such a pretty stamp!
Ok, so I have gotten into a habit of showing two cards in my blog posts, so it's time for today's second card! This time I've gone full blown winter with a snowman and a snowy background! I have a weak spot I think it must be just this, snowmen in no-line. The stamp is called Snowone Else Like You.
Isn't he adorable? I put him in the corner and masked him off to create the darker blue background with Distress Oxides before using the Liquid White Snowflake Paper Splatter Watercolor to make it look like it is snowing. Then I used my Copics to colour him up. For the sentiment I used one of the word stamps from Merry Christmas Friends, stamped it up in a deeper shade of red, and used the coordinating die for it. Then I put it on the card using foam tape to give it some dimension. To finish it all off I used snowflakes from the Nostalgic Times mix and red sequins from the Vintage Christmas mix.
A close up of the great sentiment and snowman. See how pretty the sequins are!
Christmas cards are my favourite and I make them all year! There will definitely be more cards with these great products in my pile of Christmas cards this year! I hope you have fun making yours!
