I have a few more cards that I wanted to post for Christmas and will join into the following challenges with the first one:
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Christmas
Anything Goes Challenge Blog - #82 Traditional Colours
Out of Hat Creations - Use Birthstone Colours I used Feb-Amethyst, May-Emerald, July-Ruby
The first card below was a lot of fun to create using flower stamps from Outlines Stamps (who sadly closed earlier this year).
The background was created using Impression Obsession's Cover a Card- CC039 Lg. Paisley and Fruitcake Kaleidacolor ink. I used a brayer to ink up the stamp along with IO's Mega Mount.
I embossed Outlines Striped Petals (Medium D658 & Small D659) with silver on green & red cardstock. I highlighted them with Micacolor Interference Paints. I added micro beads to the flower centres and added a pearl flourish that was in my stash along with holograph Starform border stickers.
I also have a couple of cards that I created with a pretty ornament stamp by Impression Obsession and Penny Black backgrounds. I borrowed this stamp from a friend during a crafty day & enjoyed colouring it so much that I ended up buying one of my own (yes I'm a stamp addict!)
Stamps used on above card: Impression Obsession - D8295 Ornaments & Penny Black - (Background) Harmony 40-170 & Christmas Story 40-164. I used also used Spellbinder Dies.
The background (Harmony) was stamped with Brilliance Pearlescent Purple ink. The dark green cardstock was stamped with the letter (Christmas story) stamp. The ornaments were embossed with a gold powder that has a bit of glitter. I painted them with Stargazer Micacolors. The card is layered as shown, I added some holograph Starform border stickers.
And here is my 2nd card with the same image below.
Stamps used on above card: Impression Obsession - D8295 Ornaments & Penny Black - (Background- Letters) Christmas Story 40-164 & Christmas Flourish (Merry Christmas) 3900H. Again I used Spellbinder Dies. The background (Letter) stamp was stamped with Wheat Versamark Chalk Ink. The Ornaments were coloured with Vintage Micacolor paints.
Thanks for your visit & enjoy the season with family & friends.
