Merry and Bright

Good morning!  Jess here!  I hope you had a great weekend celebrating World Card Making Day and I also hope you’re hard at work creating your cards using The Ton stamps and gilding for our very first challenge!  You can find more details about that here!

To continue the trend I’m here with a few more holiday cards using non-holiday stamps! 🙂

I used the Round Diamonds stamp set to create holiday “ornaments”!  I stamped the diamonds onto watercolor paper with versamark before heat-embossing them with white powder.  Next I applied a little water to each gem and then dabbed on some bright watercolors with my Kuretake Gansai Tambi palette.  I also added a few splatters of paint across the paper.  I let that dry completely and then I stamped the sentiment from Holiday Lyrics.  On my red and green card I embossed the sentiment in gold powder and added a strip of gold cardstock as an accent.  On the purple and silver card I embossed the sentiment in silver powder with a strip of silver cardstock.  Bright, cheery, and perfect for that jewelry loving friend or significant other! 😉

Thanks so much for visiting today and don’t forget to comment on our World Card Making Day Hop for chances to win several gift certificates!!

    Very creative Jess using the Round Diamonds stamp set to create bright and glowing ornaments! I’m so excited to have found The Ton, thanks to Jennifer Mcquire, because I love your stamp and die sets and look forward to seeing what you have in the future. Congrats to all of the DT and The Ton!
