About 20 ladies came to stamp Christmas card samples on Saturday.. we always have SUCH a good time!!!! Below are the samples they copied... they made 2 of each - so they went home with 10 finished Christmas cards. Bless my dear husband for cutting the cardstock - hopefully I'll be healed enough in January to start cutting c/s again!
ABOVE: for tip on making the wreath download the .pdf file from this previous post. To create the green embellishment behind "Merry Christmas", stamp Merry Christmas on the Key tag punch, then punch out the Designer Label Punch in green and cut it in 1/2, separate the 2 halves and adhere them behind the greeting.
ABOVE: I saw this idea on several blogs.. this is not an original idea, but everyone LOVED it. Create an oval "mask" with the Coluzzle and vellum paper, stamp and sponge inside the oval with Sage Shadow, remove the mask, and stamp the large tree & greeting. Colors: Sage Shadow and Forest Foliage. Glitter the tree for some "bling" if desired. Ticket Corner punch was used on the white and Sage Shadow layers.
ABOVE: I used the Oval punch in the front of the card so that the oval greeting from inside shows through the oval opening. A Jumbo Eyelet was added using a Crop A Dile.
ABOVE: Watercolor technique used: Spritz watercolor paper about 3x, and then stamp the flower from Fabulous Flowers in Purely Pomegranate ink repeatedly until you run out of ink. A Build a Brad was used on the tag for some added interest.
ABOVE: simple 3x3 card - could be used for a to:/from: tag or added to a gift bag or used as a cello topper. Flowers and greeting stamped in Purely Pomegranate on paper from the Holiday Harmony pack.
