Holiday Card Series 2014 – Day 21

Hello, all! Today’s video marks Day 21 of the Holiday Card Series. :)

I chose to use WPlus9′s Festive Greeting stamp set on this card. And it’s the only stamp set I used. This card actually requires very minimal supplies. Mostly just stamps, ink, and cardstock.

The Christmas lights were stamped in three ink colors from Simon: Smoke, Hot Lips, and Beanstalk Green. To make the lights shiny, I applied Glossy Accents.

Hope you enjoy today’s video!

Holiday Card Series 2014 – Day 20

Hi all! Today I really fun card for you. And since it’s Day 20 of the Holiday Card Series, it’s a coloring card.

Aren’t those little carolers adorable! They’re from Mama Elephant’s Alpine Caroler’s stamp set (available at Simon, or from Mama Elephant directly).

To create the scene, I first stamped them in StazOn Jet Black ink. Then I stamped them again on Inkadinkado Stamping Mask paper, cut them out and applied the masks over the people. For the snow bank, I created a sloping mask out of Post-It paper (discontinued — see note below). Then I added the blue background using Salty Ocean and Chipped Sapphire Distress Inks and a Mini Round Ink Blending Tool.

The people were colored with Prismacolor Colored Pencils, and then the greeting and music notes were stamped in VersaMark ink and white heat embossed.

Masking Paper

If you are a masking fan like I am, you have greatly felt the loss of Eclipse Masking Paper (it’s been out of stock EVERYWHERE for a long, long time). I love the Inkadinkado Stamping Mask Paper, but sometimes you need a larger piece of masking paper, like for today’s card. In the past I’ve always used Eclipse Masking Paper, or more recently I’ve used Post-It paper. That is, until the Post-It paper was discontinued. :( Anyhow, I have great news! Simon Says Stamp is now selling their own masking paper! This is one that I’ve tested and it works just as well as the other masking papers and it’s a better price, too. :)

You can pick up the Simon Says Stamp Masking Paper HERE.

Anyhow, onto today’s card. I hope you enjoy!

Holiday Card Series 2014 – Day 19

Happy Monday, everyone! :)

How about non-traditional Christmas colors for Day 19 of the Holiday Card Series? I love this color combination and thought it would make a fun holiday card. And it’s definitely a non-traditional color combination!

I first stamped the greeting area using Simon’s Holiday Hellos stamp set, and then all the hearts from Simon’s Tons of Hearts stamp set. I used all pigment inks from Avery Elle (Sea Glass, Aquamarine, Lemon Grass, and Raspberry). The brown ink is an older Stampin’ Up! ink called Soft Suede. The background of the card was stamped in Simon’s White Pigment ink using Impression Obsession’s Dotted Argyle background stamp (available at Simon and also straight from Impression Obsession).

Do you like non-traditional Christmas colors? Let me know in the comments. :)
