Season of Soft Suede

This card uses the tree stamp from Season of Joy. I stamped the tree in Soft Suede ink on Whisper White card stock, then colored in the star with Crushed Curry and stamped again, trimming it out and adhering it to the card stock using a tiny glue dot. The whisper white was matted with Soft suede card stock.

As for the base, I used Real Red textured card stock, layered with Christmas Cocoa DSP, snowflakes on top and striped pattern along the bottom. Where the DSPs meet, I tied a piece of 5/8″ Real Red Grosgrain Ribbon.

The small circle hangs from behind the ribbon. I stamped the Merry Christmas image from Delightful Decorations in Red ink on whisper white card stock and punched it out using the 3/4″ Circle Punch. I layered it on a Real Red card stock circle of the same size, slipping in some Silver Cord between the two layers. Then, I placed a tiny glue dot behind the knot of the ribbon and adhered the other end of Silver Cord to the card base.

On a Snowy Log

I wanted to try stamping the Woodgrain stamp in white to make it look like a snow covered log. This is the result. Card base is Real Red textured card stock, with a top fold. I scalloped the bottom edge using the Scallop Edge Punch, and layered some whisper white on the inside both to make it easy to write and to make the scallop edge stand out.

The DSP on the front of the card is from Christmas Cocoa. At the bottom of the card, I stamped Woodgrain in Versamark on Chocolate chip card stock and heat embossed it using White Embossing Powder. Where the DSP and card stock meet, I tied some 5/8″ Real Red Polka Dot ribbon.

The snowmen are from Snow Buddies stamp set, stamped in Chocolate chip ink on Whisper White. I colored them in using my Markers, trimmed them out, and adhered them to the base using dimensionals.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas

I’m just pretending Autumn came and went, when really, it’s still technically Summer and I’m making Christmas cards. Something is wrong with this picture!

Card base is real red, layered with Chocolate chip. The DSP is from Christmas Cocoa DSP and it’s awesome. All the paper in this package is either shimmery or embossed with felt, or just plain beautiful. You don’t have to do much when you have great DSP!

Across the front I added a piece of Real Red Polka Dot Grosgrain Ribbon and stamped a snowflake from Berry Christmas in Versamark and heat embossed it using Silver Embossing Powder. I then used the 1 3/8″ Circle Punch to punch out the snowflake and layered it on a Scallop Circle Punch out of Chocolate chip card stock. I adhered all that to the base using dimensionals.

Finally, the sentiment is from Christmas Greetings and I originally stamped it in red directly on the DSP but it didn’t show up well because the paper is slightly shimmery. So, I used the stamp-a-majig to line up my Do Over stamp, this time in Real Red Craft ink and heat embossed with Clear E.P. to make it stand out more.
