Holiday Card Series 2015 – Day 1

Yay! It’s Day 1 of the Holiday Card Series for 2015! I know some of you might be wondering why I start my holiday cards so early. It’s because there will be twenty-five videos, every Monday, Wednesday, Friday until about the first week in December. This year I hope to throw in some Thanksgiving cards on some of the off days as well. :)

Anyhow, let’s get this thing started! Today I’m kicking off the series by creating a card with my two kitties on the front. Of course! LOL! I used two new stamp sets on this card: Christmas Cats and Circle Sayings Holiday. Both stamp sets are part of the new Create Joy release from Simon Says Stamp. You can see all of the release here.

The two cats were stamped in Versafine ink on Arches Cold Press watercolor paper, and then painted using Dr. Ph. Martin’s Hydrus watercolors.

The area behind the cats was created by masking off the ground area and then blending four Distress Ink colors to the top of the circle using Mini Round Blending Tools.
