For Day 4, we are showcasing with the Holiday Post stamp set and coordinating dies with the Christmas Roundabout stamp set that coordinates with the Circle Frames die set and the Banner Trio die set.

To make my first project, I started by stamping the images on some Neenah solar white card stock and colored them in with alcohol markers.  I used the coordinating dies to die-cut them out.

The background was ink-blended with Faded Jeans, Black Soot, Seedless Preserves, Victorian Velvet, Antique Linen.  For added texture, I sprayed it with some water and picked up the excess with my paper towel.  

I die-cut the trees from the Forest Scene Builder die set, the snowbanks with the Land Border and Sky Borders die set and adhered onto the colored panel.

My adhered the focal image onto the card and finished my design by adding the sentiment, die-cut using the Holiday Greetings die set on some glittered card stock.  I finished my design by adding the snow using my white Posca paint pen.

For my next project, I stamped the images on some Neenah solar white and colored them in with alcohol markers.  I used the Circle Frames die to die-cut the image.

To ground the focal image, I added some red circle frame with some liquid glue.  Next step was to create the shaker well, that I die-cut using a die from my collection.  I used some snowflake sprinkles as my shaker element.

I finished my design by adding the sentiment, die-cut using the Banner Trio die set.

  1. Love the pretty pink & orange blended background on your Holiday Post card! Also such a unique idea to turn the area around the Christmas roundabout stamp into a shaker so you can clearly see the beautiful coloring on the roundabout!

  4. Both cards are utterly delightful!! Your coloring on both is fabulous, especially the inkblended background on the first. And your snow is perfect – I usually added too many dots!!
