A little bit of colouring and voila another Sugarplum Dreams card is in the making. One thing I love about this set is it’s line art and that means colouring!!! I just used Stampin Write markers and the marker I used for the pictures background was Sweet Sugarplum which just seemed appropriate. Of course the stamped images were done with Basic Black Archival ink and the sentiment uses Pool Party card stock with Pacific Point ink cut with the Everyday Tag punch. It’s all mounted on Silver Foil Paper on Perfect Plum card stock and finished with some rhinestone jewels.
Sugarplum Dreams was my go to set for my first card of the entire holiday catalog!!! I chose to make it Christmasy with metallics rather than sticking to traditional colours. I’ve used Silver, Gold and the new Champaign Foil Paper. The DSP is Year of Cheer and the stamping is done with Versamark embossed with gold and Smokey Slate ink on Powder Pink card stock. The images were cut out with the new Everyday Tag Punch. All the colours that I can imagine would look beautiful with this DSP make me squeal with delight!!!!
Sometimes I don’t feel so inclined to use any great layers or embellishments ie bling to make a card. Instead I just have a need to dig for my inner artist and just use inks and paper. This is done with a Whisper White sheet of card stock and sponged with Berry Blast, Tranquil Tide, and Lemon Lime Twist inks as well as Momento Tuxedo Black ink on a sponge dauber for the edges as well as to stamp all the images. Touches of Texture was my main stamp set but hello came from the Eastern Palace stamp set. It is matted in Berry Blast and Basic Black.
Some serious fussy cutting here! No I didn’t have any dies to cut these reindeer from the Nature Sings stamp set. Once again I started with painting on ink this time the colours were Pool Party and Powder Pink and then stamped on the trees with Garden Green and pulled out my Lovely as a Tree stamp set and put the one tree in the foreground with Tranquil Tide ink. Then I stamped Soft Suede card stock with Chocolate Chip ink then stamped them on the paper with Chocolate Chip ink to place the deer and glued my fussy cut deer on top finally I stamped the sentiment with Chocolate Chip ink and matted with Powder Pink and Tranquil Tide card stock.
Carols of Christmas bundle is the starting point as far as the idea went but first I had to set the background using ink in Rich Razzleberry, Crushed Curry and Pool Party. I used my Aqua Painters for painting on the ink. I visualized it with silver foil and I want some contrast foil so for the deer I used copper foil. The sentiment is stamped with Versamark ink and embossed in silver and comes from the Nature Sings stamp set. I love the feeling of depth this card has! I love the simple fact that no matter how often I might decide to replicate this card no two cards can ever be exactly the same.
This is a simple but elegant Christmas card. It uses the negative plus part of the positive of the largest snowflakes of the seasonal layers thinlits dies. The sentiment is in Dapper Denim ink and uses the Nature Sings stamp set. Under the snowflake there is some Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper. All the card stock is Whisper White and it is embellished with silver Faceted Gems.
