2016 Holiday Card Series | Day 21, 22, 23, 24, and 25 of 25!

I know Christmas is over, but I had to post these to officially end the holiday series for 2016.  Below are the last 5 cards of the series.

The sweet card above was day 21.  I used this sweet stamp set by Wild Rose Studio.  I used my Distress Inks to watercolor the birdies and my Marvy Snow Marker to add some dimension to their little santa hats.  For the process video and a list of supplies, click here.

For day 22 I only used one stamp.  The fireplace was a die from MFT.  I really liked the way this card turned out.  I used my distress inks for all the color and a fireplace stencil to create the brick.  The patterned paper I used was actually from a Halloween Paper Pack from Tim Holtz.  If you would like to see how I made this video and a list of supplies, click here.

On day 23 I created this quick card using a Concord & 9th stamp set.  I got inspiration for this card from a similar card posted on their website.  However, I decided to stick to traditional colors, green and red, and used patterned paper and a strip of washi tape to finish it off.  For the process video and a list of supplies, click here

For day 24 I made this super simple card using MFT Deer Friends stamp set.  The background was a larger print piece of patterned paper that was perfect for creating this scene.  For the quick process video and a list of supplies used, click here.

For my final day I created this pretty little blue Christmas tree card.  I used Hero Arts Christmas Layering stamp set.  I wanted to use this patterned paper from Echo Park and wanted the tree to match, so I used three different blue Distress Inks and it turned out perfectly.  For the process video and a list of supplies, click here.

I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas holiday or whatever you chose to celebrate.  I will be back in a few days with my 10 cards 1 kit from Hero Arts December Card Kit.

2016 Holiday Card Series | Day 18, 19, and 20 of 25!

Here is day 18 of my holiday card series.  I used amazing The Ton stamp sets, Holiday Bows and Grand Bows.  These of course are layering stamps and if you have the patience, they come out beautifully!  I stuck to traditional Christmas colors, red and green.  If you would like to see the process video and how to line them up, click here.  There you will find a list of supplies.

Card 19 is a one layer card which is starting to become my favorite type of card! Making a card with no adhesive?!  Sign me up!  I used Snowy Sayings by Cas-ual Fridays and some Memento Inks to create the cluster of snowflakes.  My favorite color combo for Christmas is silver and blue.  Loved the way this simple card turned out.  If you would like to see the process video, click here.  Links to supplies are there as well.

Card 20 was made using MFT Oh Christmas Trees.  I love how these cards turned out and by a sweet accident, they are great masculine cards.  I used silver and gold embossing powder on black card stock giving the card a different look.  I don’t think black card stock is a color people tend to grab when making a Christmas card, but I love it!  If you would like to see the process video, click here.  Supplies will be linked in the video description.

2016 Holiday Card Series | Day 15, 16, and 17 of 25, OH MY!

Hey guys!  So I am lumping 3 days of my holiday card series into one post today to make things a little easier and to catch you guys up!

For day 15 I used a Unity Stamp Co. stamp called, Love Bug Christmas.  I water colored the image using Distress Inks and I really like the way it turned out.  Since I did a previous holiday card with a red truck, I decided to paint this one yellow.

If you would like to check out the process video, click here.  There you will also find a link to supplies used.

On to day 16!  I used another Sunny Studio stamp set called Merry Sentiments.  This was another layering stamp set and if you know me, you know I love my layered stamps!  If you would like to see the process video, click here.  As always you will find a list of supplies there too.

Finally day 17… For this card I used Hero Arts Santa’s Elves.  This stamp set is sooooo cute!  I colored them with my Prismacolors and used the MFT Peekaboo die to make it appear they are behind the card peeking out.  Love this card.  If you want to see the process video, click here.  Enjoy!

 

2016 Holiday Card Series | Day 14 of 25 | Winnie & Walter with Simon Says Stamp

dscn2024

Welcome to day 14 of my holiday card series.  I decided to go simple because lets be honest, I’m cutting it down to the wire with my holiday series.  I will finish this series, but oh my am I running around like a buffoon trying to get videos done daily.  Definitely will take a breather once I am finished with this series.  For your sake and mine! 🙂

So for day 14 I made this really quick and simple card using my favorite color, pink!  I love non-traditional colors for Christmas.  Christmas is my favorite season, but red and green color combo is not.  Winnie and Walter has a great stamp set called Holiday Trimmings.  It consists of rows of stamps which makes this card super fast since the trees were stamped in rows at once!  I topped the card off with the gorgeous Merry Christmas sentiment from SSS, tied a bow with pink twine, and topped it off with sequins to complete the look.

2016 Holiday Card Series | Day 13 of 25 | Simon Says Stamp Create Joy Die Set

dscn1986

Happy Monday!  Today I used this intricate Simon Says Stamp Create Joy die to create these pretty little cards.  Like I said in the video, if you happen to work with this die, make sure you have patience.  Whew!  The die is lovely but does take some time (did I say patience).

I used Lawn Fawn paper and some ribbon in my stash to finish up the cards.  My card bases are 5×5 which is a lovely change to the regular card sizes we use.

2016 Holiday Card Series | Day 9 of 25 | Taylored Expressions Campy Christmas

dscn1875

Here is day 9 in my holiday card series.  I used Taylored Expressions Campy Christmas stamp set.  ADORABLE!! I feel like I say that with every stamp set I use, after all that is why I buy them.  However, with Taylored Expression stamps these ring true.  They are the same company that did the grumplings stamp set I used in my gift tag series.
