For Day 4, we are showcasing the Prehistoric Christmas Stamp & Dies, Christmas Pheasant Stamp & Dies with the Heartfelt Holidays that coordinates with the previously released Heart Frames & Banner Trio Dies.
The first card is clean and simple. I die-cut the scallop frame from the Frames & Flags Die Set and used masking tape to mask off the card stock. I ink-blended this panel with some Seedless Preserves, Picked Raspberry, Carved Pumpkin and Mustard Seed distress oxide inks.
I sprayed the panel with water and picked up the excess with some paper towel, and adhered this on an A2-size white notecard.
Next, I stamped the images on some Neenah solar white card stock and colored the images in with alcohol markers. I used the coordinating die to cut them out. I added the images on the card using liquid glue. I finished the design by adding the sentiment, and glittery stars to give it a whimsical touch.
I am starting to really LOVE creating clean and simple card so the next project is another easy one. A one-layer card is a the way to go!
I basically repeated the steps that I did above with the ink-blending and coloring the images. I also stamped the trees from the Festive Forest Stamp Set and used the coordinating dies to cut them out.
I popped-up the first tree with foam adhesive and added the other two with liquid glue. I also foam-mounted the focal image to make it stand out, finishing the design by stamping the sentiment with Versafine Onyx Black Ink.
And last but not the least is the Heartfelt Holidays project. For all you coloring people out there, this is another must-have!
For a cohesive look, I only used some variations of green and red! Nothing too busy here! I just LOVE the simplicity of this stamp set and I am so happy that Newton’s Nook is adding more stamp set to match the Heart Frames Die Set.
I finished my card design by stamping the sentiment on some red card stock and used the Banner Trio Die Set to cut it out. I foam-mounted this onto the card for added dimension.
So there you have it folks! If you hopped along with us throughout this week, I’d LOVE to hear what your favorites are! I hope you have been inspired by the design team all week long! The products will be available tomorrow so grab your favorites first thing before they sell out!
