We had a great time at last weeks’ classes using the fabulous Colorful Seasons stamp set and co-ordinating Seasonal Layers dies and……. we made the first Christmas card of the year!!! Love Christmas.
The first card the ladies made was a double fold card. We used Thick Whisper White cardstock for the base and after folding added a piece Berry Burst Designer Series Paper (dsp) from the Color Theory paper stack to the front panel.
Using a piece of Whisper White cardstock which had a circle die cut out and a Stampin Sponge we added a circle of Pink Pirouette onto a small panel of Whisper white cardstock. Next we stamped the branches from the Colorful Seasons stamp set in Early Espresso ink and added the flowers using the Berry Burst ink pad. They look so pretty and give a soft Asian feel to the panel. We die cut the Adirondack chair using the co-ordinating Seasonal Layers dies from the a piece of Early Espresso cardstock. We mounted the stamped Whisper White panel onto a panel of Early Espresso cardstock. The chair was added to the panel using Tombow Liquid Adhesive. We added the whole panel to the card front again using Tombow.
The second card was more autumnal in colour and theme. We stamped the small solid leaf image randomly down the side of a Thick Whisper White card base in Old Olive ink. We stamped the same image in the same ink onto a piece of Old Olive cardstock which we then punched using the Scallop Tag Topper punch. We also punched the top of a strip of Color Theory dsp in Crushed Curry and added it using Tombow Liquid Adhesive to the back left hand side of the tag. Using the Seasonal Layers dies we cut a partial leaf shape from the Old Olive tag and also cut a filigree leaf from a piece of Crushed Curry cardstock. A small solid leaf was stamped in Crushed Curry ink and die cut using the matching die. A small piece of Crushed Curry Ribbon was stapled to the top if the tag using the now retired Handheld Stapler and the staple hidden by the small Crushed Curry leaf. The sentiment was stamped in Old Olive ink before the tag was added to the card front using Stampin Dimensionals. The filigree Crushed Curry leaf was then added to the card front using Tombow.
For the last card we stamped the 2 snowflakes from the Colorful Seasons stamp set randomly onto a layer of Night of Navy cardstock using Whisper White Craft ink and set it aside to dry. The sentiment from the Flurry of Wishes stamp set was stamped onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock using Night of Navy ink. The 3 snowflake dies in the Seasonal Layers set were then die cut from a strip of Whisper White cardstock. When the Whisper White Craft ink was dry, it takes a couple of minutes; we added the sentiment piece using Tombow then mounted the whole panel onto the card front using Stampin Dimensionals before adding the die cut snowflakes with Tombow Liquid Adhesive.
Love all of these cards using this fantastically versatile stamp set and dies. I hope you like them.
