Welcome back everyone! It’s been a hot minute since I’ve posted. I’ve been taking a little break from card making. Kids are now on Christmas break and I’m just enjoying some down time at the moment. Now I’m back and ready to get stamping!
I’m starting with a blue Christmas. That’s what I’m calling it. It’s fun to take your stamps and use them with colors and styles that you may not normally have done. The beautiful Classic Christmas stamp set for example. My card is fairy clean and simple but still packs a punch with non-traditional colors.
I started my card by ink blending a piece of Lapis card stock with Cornflower and Navy ink from Hero Arts. I started with the Cornflower Ink, blending in towards the middle of the card with a blending brush. I didn’t blend it all the way to the center.
Next, I ink blended Navy Ink on the very edges. I wanted the center to pop just a little more so I lightly ink blended Sea Salt Reactive Ink. Once my panel was completely dry, which I helped along with a heat tool, I prepped it with an anti-static tool. Then I randomly stamped the image onto the card panel using embossing ink. I sprinkled on Sparkle Embossing Powder and heat set.
I added Nuvo Aqua Shimmer Pen in Glitter Gloss to all of flowers and leaves. This adds a beautiful sparkle to the images without overpowering it.
I stamped the sentiment from the Classic Christmas stamp set onto Pitch Black card stock with embossing ink. Then heat set with white embossing powder and trimmed down to a thin strip.
I added a small strip of foam tape to the back of the sentiment and added it to my card front using a T-square ruler to help me keep it straight. My finishing touch is to add a couple sequins with Connect glue. Then topped off with Nuvo Dream Drops.
I hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration! I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and Happy New Year!
