Christmas At Home (by Julie)

Hello, today I have two more Christmas designs from this month's fabulous, festive stamp sets. My first is created with one of the new single cling mounted stamps called Welcome Home, the snowflakes in the background are from the new Sparkling Trees and the sentiment is from Christmas Magic

The main image has been stamped with Sepia Versafine and then coloured with pencils. I stamped the image again onto spare card so that the trees could be cut out and decoupaged. The snow has been added with a white marker pen with extra Crystal Stickles for good measure. The image has then been edged with Mermaid Lagoon Distress ink, before being mounted onto silver mirri card. I masked off the section behind the main image on the base card with masking tape and stamped the snowflakes with Versamark and heat embossed with Sparkling Snow Embossing powder, before adding Faded Jeans Distress ink with some cut n dry foam. The sentiment was stamped with Onyx Black Versafine.

My second card is in a very traditional style and has been stamped with the brand new Christmas Candlelight set.
The base card has been coloured with Tea Dye Distress ink, stamped with the small holly stamp using Watering Can Archival ink and then coloured with colouring pencils.
The candle image was stamped onto glossy stamping card with Watering Can Archival ink before being coloured with alcohol pens. The image was cut out with a die and the larger size die was used to cut the green card-stock matt. Both die cuts have been edged with a gold marker pen and Tea Dye distress ink.
To finish off the sentiment was stamped with Black Onyx Versafine and is from the Christmas Magic set.

Many thanks for stopping by and please pop back soon to see some more design team inspiration.

  2. Beautiful , love esp the second card and your instructions and the name of the colors you used is so helpful to me . Have a joy filled day Jan

  3. Two really pretty cards Julie and the first looks great mixing the new single stamps wth the trees from the new set and I love the snowflake band across the middle in the background and the silver embossing which complements the silver mirri card mat. I love the pretty die cut mat with the prettily coloured candles on the second, and the holly works really well in the background. x

    1. Hi Pat, thank you for your lovely comments. The main image is just the single stamp which the trees are included in. I have just stamped it onto spare card so I could cut out the trees and decoupage them for extra dimension.
