For Day 3, we are showcasing the Christmas Nap Stamp Set + Coordinating Dies with the Newton’s Gift Stamp Set and Coordinating Dies.
I started by stamping my images on some X-Press It Blending Card and colored the images in with alcohol markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.
Next, I ink-blended some Bristol Smooth white card stock and covered the bottom part with masking tape. I used the Starfield Stencil and Antique Linen Distress oxide ink with my blending brush. I removed the masking tape and lightly ink-blended the same color at the bottom of the panel. I adhered this on some A2-size white notecard.
I added the focal image on the card with foam adhesive for more dimension. I stamped the sentiment using Versamark ink on a strip of red card stock. I sprinkled some white embossing powder and heat-set with the heating tool, adhering the sentiment with liquid glue. Here’s another look:
My next project was also stamped on some X-Press It blending card and die-cut with the coordinating die. I also die-cut the tag using the Fancy Edges Tag Die Set with the new Canine Christmas Paper Pad and some Neenah solar white card stock, adhering them with liquid glue.
The focal image was foam-mounted onto the tag for added dimension.
I finished the tag by adding some red ribbon and gold jingle bell, then stamped the sentiment with some red dye ink. Here’s another look:
