Holiday Card Series – Day 9

Hi all!

As promised, today’s Holiday Card Series Day 9 card is super simple and easy. I think you could easily replicate it many times for your holiday card list. :)

To start the card, I scored and folded Schoolhouse Red cardstock from Simon Says Stamp. Then I stamped the Leaves, Berries, & Branches background stamp in the same color of ink. The word “wishes” was stamped and embossed using the circle letters from Hero Arts’ Decorate a Tree stamp set and Hero Arts white embossing powder. For dimension, I cut Paper Smooches’ “Christmas” diecut from their Christmas Words 2 die set (also available straight from Paper Smooches) three times and stacked them. Then I coated it with Ranger Enamel Accents.

A quick dashed line border in white pen finished off the card.

Holiday Card Series 2014 – Day 8

Hello, all!

Today marks Day 8 of the Holiday Card Series. Since it’s Wednesday, I’ve done a coloring card (similar to my Color Wednesday videos). The stamp I colored today is Dollie With Gifts from The Greeting Farm. Isn’t she so cute?! I just love the new Dollie stamps TGF has started releasing (see another Dollie card that I colored HERE). The red coat with white fur trim on this stamp makes me think of my favorite holiday movie, White Christmas. I’ve always loved the red satin dresses at the end of the movie. :)

Anyhow, I colored Dollie with Copic Markers. To create the background behind her, I cut out a mask to protect her while I added Distress Inks and the “Happy Holidays” stamp from Mama Elephant’s Season’s Greeting stamp set on top. I’m loving dark navy background at the moment, so I think you’ll be seeing it again during the Holiday Card Series.

Hope you enjoy today’s video! :)

Holiday Card Series 2014 – Day 7 + Wow Embossing Powder GIVEAWAY!

Hello, all!

Today I have Day 7 of the Holiday Card Series and a giveaway for you all. :)

Wow just came out with six new embossing glitters and I got a chance to try them out (available at Simon now). For today’s card, I used the new Whirlpool color to emboss snowflakes from Avery Elle’s Noel stamp set. The blue glitter embossing powder is so pretty on black cardstock! I love how it turned out.

I gave the glitter the “rub test,” meaning I tested to see how much glitter would come off when I rubbed it. A little bit came off at first, but them it eventually “calms down” and no glitter flakes off. So you could certainly rub off as must as possible before sending the card if you’re worried about the card recipient getting an envelope full of glitter. :)

NOTE: Be sure to check out the giveaway below the video. :)
