Trio of Christmas Cards

Hello and Happy Friday to you! Wow this week has flown by, it’s been so busy so we are really looking forward to some rest this weekend.. hope you will have some chill out time too! We have Judy Rozema here on the blog today with a trio of gorgeous Christmas cards featuring stamps from our latest release…


Hello everyone!

Today I am sharing some projects made with the newly released Christmas stamps and stencils.


First up is the fabulous INKED HOLLY, one of the new mini stamp sets.

I made a watercolor background using Peeled Paint and Crushed Olive DOX inks, and loosely colored my holly with Karin markers. Some extra holly berries (glitter enamel dots) and gold metallic thread are my embellishments. I spattered black ink to finish off the look.




Next up is the beautiful SCRIBBLED STAR. I absolutely love this one. Not only can you use it for Christmas, but it makes a great celebratory card, say for a birthday, too!

I made a shaker card, stamping the image in Hero Arts Intense Black ink, and then outlined some of the letters and star with a yellow Posca paint pen.


I added my shaker mix of stars and beads. For the frame, I used the stars from the new ICONIC CHRISTMAS stencil, with Simon Hurley’s Sike! ink.



My third card today uses the beautiful SIMPLY SNOWFLAKES and a sentiment from the previously released SENTIMENTAL CHRISTMAS.


I used the emboss resist technique on this one, to give the impression of swirling snowflakes. I stamped my snowflakes with Versamark ink, and then embossed with White Detail Embossing Powder. I then painted a background using Tumbled Glass DOX ink.

A trio of sequins adds dimension and sparkle to finish the main card panel. I backed it with some shimmer card stock in a complementary blue shade, and used white as the card base.

Christmas Eve | Stencil & Stamps

Hello! We hope you are doing ok. Lynda Hall is on the blog today with a fantastic Christmas card created with our NEW ‘Christmas Eve’ stencil which works wonderfully with our Christmas Eve stamp set…


It’s time for my fortnightly share for Visible Image and this week we on the DT are all feeling festive because the NEW Christmas stamps and stencils have been released and they are AMAZING!


I love to create scenes on my cards, and the Christmas Eve stencil is so perfect for this. I am afraid I got so carried away getting inky that I failed a little on the step by step photos, but I will explain my method.


I started with a piece of blank card, and used Black Soot Distress ink and the stencil to create rows of buildings. I faded them out towards the back rows to add a sense of dimension.  I then re inked rows on another piece of card, as I wanted to layer them up for more depth.



Using the cut away part of the stencil to cover the top row, I applied blue inks to the top half to create a sky. To create the moon I applied darker ink around a die cut circle.


I then stamped the sleigh from the Christmas Eve stamp set, and added stars and embossed snowflakes. White splatters added to the snowy feel, and I used a gel pen to add highlights.



I added lights to the buildings with a paint pen, and edged the roof line with puffy snow and glitter for some added sparkle. I built up the layers with 3D glue gel and added the sentiment from the Santa Claus set, and a message inside using the Sentimental Christmas set.




Supplies




christmas eve stencil | sleigh | roof tops




Christmas stamps | trees | sleigh | roof tops | stars




santa claus stamp | chimney | boot prints | naught nice list



I really love how the new release links so well with last years Christmas stamps. It really does mean the possibilities are endless!




This card is awesome! The layered buildings look amazing, such wonderful depth and the snow looks great! Beautiful sky too. Thank you Lynda ♡

Christmas Card | Tree Branch Stamp

Good Evening! We have even more fantastic inspiration for you today as Martha is here on the blog with a stunning Christmas card, cleverly created with non-Christmas stamps…


For my DT post for Visible Image, today I share a Christmas card made with a ‘no-christmas’ stamp set, in fact the focal images are from the Night Owl while the date border is from the Christmas Chaos set.



First of all I prepared my background blending some Distress Ink


Then I stamped around the edges the branch from the ‘Night Owl’


Some water spritzs to create a snowy look


I colored with Nuvo Shimmer Powder another cardstock on wich I stamped
the round element


and then punched three circles


With a metallic thread I ‘hung up’ my ornaments


I finished my card with the date border from the ‘Christmas Chaos’


Some glitter spritzs and my card is finished 🙂

 


 




Stamps Used:


night owl | flying | stamp



christmas tree | grunge | stamps | mixed media

This is such a creative card Martha! Your snowy sky is beautiful and the log baubles look fantastic hanging from the branches. Thank you ♡
