Hello everyone… First of all… Happy Thanksgiving to all of you who are celebrating in USA. I hope you all have a fabulous and wonderful time with your family.
Join me today at STAMPlorations Blog for another Throwback Thursday feature post. I am back with couple of Christmas themed cards.
The colors and background of this Christmas tag inspired me to create these three Christmas cards today. I created this tag back in November 2018 and for more detail about it, you can find it on this blog post.
For this background, I used the Holly Background ARTplorations Stencil, Gelatos, and baby wipes. The sentiment is Blessed Christmas – Typografia Christmas Stamp. For the tag I used the Stitch Tag Nesting Dies and Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies.
I created the backgrounds for two of the cards using the Holly Background ARTplorations Stencil, Peeled Paint Distress Oxide Ink, Fired Brick Distress Oxide Ink, Blending Brush, and water.
First, it is a simple blending the distress ink on the white cardstock using the stencil and small oval blending brush. After adding the colors, I removed the stencil and sprayed the cardstock lightly with water and dabbed it off with paper towel for distressed look.
On the other one, I used the stamping with stencil technique. After removing the stencil from the cardstock, I sprayed the stencil lightly with some water, flipped it over on top of a piece of watercolor paper. I dabbed of the extra water off with paper towel and then I dried it completely with craft heater.
I used the first stenciled background on this card. I cut the cardstock with the largest size of the Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies, and I added it on top of the white card base with Tombow Mono Permanent Adhesive.
I stamped the sentiment on another white cardstock with Golden Glitz Delicata ink using Mini MISTI. I dried the ink with craft heater and then I cut it with the smallest size of the nesting dies. I added it on top of the card with 3D foam tape.
I cut the watercolored background base with the largest size of the Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies and then I added on the white card base with Tombow Mono Permanent Adhesive.
On this second card, I use the Joyful Christmas – Typografia Christmas Stamp. I stamped it on a white cardstock with the Golden Glitz Delicata Ink Pad, dried it, and trimmed it with paper trimmer. I added it on top of the card with 3D foam tape.
My third card, the design is the same with the other two cards. I used the Holly Background ARTplorations Stencil for the background. I added some Unicorn White Pigment Ink on a piece of red cardstock with blending brush.
After that, I dried the ink with craft heater and cut it with the largest size of the Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies. I added it on a red card base with Tombow Mono Permanent Adhesive.
For the sentiment, I used stamping with stencil technique using the Christmas Trees ARTplorations Stencil and white spray ink. I did it on a piece of this green watercolored background paper left over from previous project. I dried it completely with craft heater.
Next, I stamped the sentiment, Angels On High – Typografia Christmas Stamp, with Unicorn White Pigment Ink and Golden Glitz Delicata Ink using Mini MISTI becuase I restamped it several times to get the crisp result.
I dried the ink with craft heater and then I cut it with the smalles size of the Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies. I added it on the card with 3D foam tape.
