Holiday Card Series 2014 – Day 11

Hi all! Today is Day 11 of the Holiday Card Series and a Wednesday, so that means I’ve created a card featuring coloring. :)

For today’s card, I chose to use the Clearly Besotted and Simon Says Stamp collaboration stamp set Winter Friends and watercolored the images with Distress Markers. Four square areas were masked off and the characters stamped in StazOn Jet Black ink. This is a super simple card, but a bit time consuming with all the watercoloring painting. But I do love how it turned out! Just love that shiny Rudolph nose. LOL!

Holiday Card Series 2014 – Day 10 + GIVEAWAY!

Hi, everyone! Today is Day 10 of the Holiday Card Series 2014. :)

When I saw Lawn Fawn’s Love You a Latte stamp set, I knew I just had to create a card that included a Starbucks gift card. I don’t know about you, but I know a TON of people who love Starbucks. It’s the perfect small gift since you can choose the gift card amount (I did $10).

I created a small vellum pocket to hold the gift card and stamped and embossed the stamps from the Love You a Latte stamp set on the front of the pocket. The background was made by first stamping Impression Obsession’s Dotted Argyle background stamp (available straight from IO or from Simon) in Simon Says Stamp White pigment ink, then stamping a lined border stamp from Mama’s Elephant’s Basic Borders stamp set in Simon Says Stamp Hot Lips ink. (WARNING: If you stamp the red ink directly after stamping the white ink without letting the white pigment ink dry, be sure to clean off your border stamp after each stamping. It will pick up some of the white pigment ink and you don’t want to get white pigment ink on your red ink pad).
