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.

Wow 3 absolutely stunning cards Judy! We’re loving how different they all are… the grungy feel of the holly card, the vibrancy and shine of the star card and subtle beauty of the snowflakes. Thank you

Christmas Stamps | Scribbled Star

Hi there! Gosh it has been such a crazy time here, but we are finally catching up with ourselves and we are back to continue sharing some of the incredible samples made with our NEW Christmas stamps and stencils! Up next is Jane Tyrrell with a stunning card featuring our ‘Scribbled Star’ stamp with our fabulous NEW ‘Christmas Eve’ stencil…

Good morning

Today I am delighted to be blogging my first sample using the new Visible Image Christmas stamps and stencils. You can check out all the fabulous newbies here.  This is a perfect range to compliment their existing Christmas stamps, and they are so affordable at just £5.99 each!

For my first make I decided to make a mixed media card.

This is what I got up to;


I made an inky background by pressing these distress inks onto my craft mat, adding some spritzes of water and then dipping in my card, drying between layers.



I applied crackle texture paste through the stencil and left to dry. You will see the crackle in the final photos, the photo below is when it is wet. When the crackle was dry I painted it with gold metallic paint which again you can see in the final photos.



I stamped the star onto gold card in black Versafine and clear embossed. I then cut out the centre of the star stamp.



I stamped and embossed the star a second time onto the inky background below the stenciled sentiment and then stuck on the cut out gold star using foam tape to raise it slightly.  Using gold ink I repeat stamped the tiny starts from the O Christmas tree set.



I then matted it up using blue and black card onto a 7″  square white card blank. Here is my finished card;
