Masculine Holiday Holly Card

 


Hello! It's Lauren here sharing a slightly mixed media holiday card using the 1 Line Holly stamp set. This is a really versatile set for creating beautiful cards with.

To create this card, I started by adhering this Christmas music tissue paper that I had in my stash. You can also use any patterned tissue paper or plain tissue paper for a cleaner look. I then applied a thin layer of collage medium (you can use mod podge or also clear gesso) to a 4.25 x 5.5" piece of bristol smooth cardstock. I laid the tissue paper on top and then applied another thin layer of collage medium over top. It is ok to have the tissue paper crumple and/or fold when you apply it. Then I set it aside to dry.

When the panel was dry, I trimmed of any tissue paper that was hanging over the edges of the panel. Then I stamped my Holly Line and sentiment in black ink onto the panel. 


I used a heat gun to make sure my ink was dry before coloring it with metallic gold watercolor. 


Once the gold watercolor was dry. I trimmed the panel down slightly and adhered it onto a black panel measuring 4.23x5.48". Then adhered that onto a white top folding A2 (4.45x5.5") card base.


I really love how this turned out. I would make a great masculine card and would go through the mail easily.

I hope this has inspired you to give this technique a try with your 1 Line Holly stamp. Thanks for visiting!

Merry Christmas!

  Hi everybody!  Amy here today sharing a card I created using the gorgeous Bunny Christmas Stamp Set illustrated by Tatsiana Zayats, and the Mid-Century Modern #2 Stencil.

I started this card by die cutting a piece of smooth white cardstock and blended on Distress Oxide Inks Salvaged Patina, Saltwater Taffy, and Shaded Lilac.  I then splattered on some white paint and set it aside to dry.  After the paint was dry, I used the Mid-Century Modern #2 Stencil to create the large, gorgeous snowflakes in the background.

Next, I stamped this adorable image from the Bunny Christmas Stamp Set, colored it with copic markers, and cut it out using the coordinating die set.

I die cut a teal banner for the sentiment, prepped it with the Cottontail Embossing Powder Tool, stamped the sentiment from the Bunny Christmas Stamp Set, and white heat embossed.

I assembled my card using teal cardstock for the base, and popped up the image and sentiment banner with foam tape for some dimension!

For finishing touches on this card I added accents with a white gel pen, glitter, and glossy accents to the bunny's nose!  Thank you and I hope you enjoyed my card today!

You Make My Heart Dance

 


Today I'd like to share with you a card I made using the Bunny Ballet stamp set and the Cat eye stencil.  I used Nuvo Mousse and some glitter along with the stencil to add some texture and interest.  I want to showcase the many ways to use stencils.  They are by far, my favorite art supply when creating anything.  Another great idea, would be to use embossing ink and powder to this stencil as well.  
I colored the single dancing bunny with a mixture of Copic and Prismacolor markers, making sure to blend thoroughly.  On pink cardstock, I used the cat eye stencil and Nuvo Mousse in Triple Berry for the background.  Before that dried, I sprinkled some chunky glitter on top.  

To finish of this card, I heat embossed the sentiment "you make my heart dance" onto purple cardstock. Don't forget to use your Cottontail embossing tool to prep your surface before embossing.  I use a bit of foam tape to pop up the strip as well as our dancing bunny.  I glued the finished product onto a card base and this card is complete.  


 I challenge you to recreate this. Make sure to tag me @craftwithme101 and The Rabbit Hole Designs on Instagram if you do. 



 

  



Have a Jolly Holly-Day!



Hello there. It's Lauren today sharing this winter night card that is full of prettily wrapped gifts. I used one of the images and a sentiment from the adorable Bunny Christmas Stamp set. 

To create my card, I first stamped my image onto a white cardstock panel that I cut to 4.25x5.5". 

Then, I colored the image using colored pencils.



Next, I colored the rest of the cardstock panel using Copic Markers in C7 first and then finished off with black colored pencil.


With the whole panel colored, I used a white gel pen and white acrylic paint pen to add white dots (stars) all around the bunny and gifts. 




When the white stars were dry, I trimmed the panel using a stitched rectangle die from my stash. and adhered the panel to a white, A2 sized (4.25x5.5") top folding card base. 

Next, I created my white embossed sentiment. First, I prepared my black cardstock using the Cottontail Embossing Powder Tool. I then stamped my sentiment using an embossing ink pad. I covered my stamped sentiment with white embossing powder, tapped off the excess, then heat set it.



I backed the sentiment with a slightly larger piece of white cardstock and then adhered the sentiment onto my card front. 




I love how the dark background really allows those colorful gifts to pop! I hope I've inspired you to try creating a dark background for your colored images. Thanks for visiting!
