For my first card, I am showcasing the All Aboard for Christmas stamp set and dies.
I started out by stamping by images on Neenah solar white card stock and colored them in with my Copic markers. I cut an A2-sized solar white card stock and colored it using my stamping tool with my broken china distress oxide ink. I used my Distress Sprayer to spray some water on my card front, and dabbed it with a dry paper towel.
I die-cut the rest of the elements that I needed to create my scene. I finished the design by adding White Nuvo Crystal Drops and Red Berry Nuvo Crystal Drops. Here’s my first card:
For the second card, I am showcasing the Sentiments of the Season stamp set with the Snowfall stencil.
I die-cut an A2 size Bristol Smooth White card stock and inked up my background with the Snowfall stencil, ink blending tool and my Broken China distress ink. I die-cut the middle using a die from my stash. I also die-cut the pinecones and the pine needles with the Pines and Holly doe set. I finished the design by adding some 4 mm crystal clear sequins to the snowflake images. Here’s the second card:
I hope you like my projects today and got inspired. Would you like to win the “All Aboard for Christmas” or the “Sentiments of the Season” Stamp Set?
