Christmas 2023 | ‘Tis the Season

Hi there!

Today I’m sharing the steps I used to create this adorable card with the Stamping Bella stamp labeled “Tiny Townie Garden Girl Holly”.

  • Stamp the Holly image onto a piece of white cardstock using Simon Says Stamp Intense Black ink.

  • Color the image with Caran d’Ache, Luminance colored pencils and added Nuvo Glitter Gloss to the holly leaves and Ranger’s Glossy Accents to the berries.

  • Watercolor a 9” x 4” piece of watercolor cardstock using Masha’s Watercolors (Peach and Shadow Green Dark) – Masha has a shop on Etsy if you are interested in the exact same paints I used. Splatter the panel using Kuretake Brilliant Gold Mica Ink.

  • Cut the watercolor panel and a piece of black cardstock using Whimsy Stamps “Slimline Cornered Rectangle” dies.

  • Add Simon Says Stamp’s Big Momma Foam Tape strips to adhere the watercolor panel to the black panel.

  • Emboss the watercolored panel with the sentiment from Ranger’s “Letter It – Christmas” stamp set using Simon Says Stamp’s Ultra Fine embossing powder in black and heat set.

  • Adhere the Holly image to the watercolor card panel using Simon Says Stamp 3D Foam Squares and all the card front panels to a slimline card base that was created using the same Whimsy Stamps “Slimline Cornered Rectangle” die set.

  • Add embellishment gemstones cascading down front of card front.

Until next time… Happy Making!
