Deck The Halls

Hello, everyone! Hope your week been going well! Vera here today and I’m sharing a couple Christmas cards I made using Holiday Bells Large Stencils.

When I colored this stencil, I had shared a couple pf the other cards HERE and today I am sharing the remaining 2 cards. To color the stencil I used Soft GardenBeach BlondieLemon DropFound TopazDolled Up and Bubblegum.  Finish with stenciling, die cut the image with the coordinating Styled Christmas Sentiment dies

I hope you can see it, on the red cardstock background I stamped it with Speckled Background stamp. Kind of hard to see since I used the Versamark ink, so it’s very subtle. Then I die cut the bells a couple more times from plain cardstock just to add thickness for layering. I finish the card with sentiment from Easy Expressions Holiday set.

Here’s my second card from the other stenciled panel.

Again, I simply repeat the same step. Yep, this one also has the Speckled Background stamped in Versamark. The lighting in my craft room make it pretty hard to get it right in the picture.

It’s pretty much crunching time right now to get some Christmas cards done, so I hope I was able to inspire you to make some Christmas cards this week. Thank you all for swinging by here.

Holiday Bells Large Stencils 2

Hi everyone! Hope you’re having a great week so far! It’s TaeEun here today with a holiday shaker card. 

Last week I shared a couple of holiday cards featuring the stenciled images from the Holiday Bells Large Stencils. For today’s card I used one of the four stenciled images from the set and made a shaker card. I thought the image with the rectangle window is perfect for a shaker card. 

I stenciled the pine needles and holy leaves in Meadow and Spring Salad and the stem in Found Topaz. The berries were stenciled in Lipstick Red and Pink Derby

There are two coordinating dies for this image, one is for the rectangle window and the other one is a detailed die which cuts the stenciled image. I used only the die for the window and adhered a clear acetate sheet on the back of the window. 

To create a wintery scene for the shaker part I chose a dark green cardbase. 

I cut the pine trees using the Pine Tree Cover Die, ink blended the edge of the die cut trees in green and adhered five of them on the cardbase, some flat and the rest using foam tape. I then splattered white opaque ink on the background and let it dry. 

I adhered some Fern Green Rhinestones on the background for some bling and added clear glitter and Deck the Halls Couture Mix as shaker elements. The front panel was added to the card with two layers of foam tape. 

On the window I added a deer which was cut using the Deer Cover die and ink blended in light brown. The sentiment from the Bold Fill In Holiday was white heat embossed on a strip of dark green cardstock. 

I already shared a card made using the fourth stenciled image from the Holiday Bells Large Stencils on my personal blog. So here are the quartet I made using the Holiday Bells Large Stencils together. 

Thank you so much for stopping by today! Hope I was able to inspire you to make some stenciled holiday cards 🙂 !


Holiday Bells Large Stencils

Hello and happy Friday everyone!!! It’s TaeEun here today with a couple of holiday cards which I made using the new Holiday Bells Large Stencils from our latest Fall / Holiday Release. Two 9”x 12” holiday themed stencil sets were debuted. Each of them includes four A2 sized images. The other one is called Jolly Season Large Stencils which I showcased on a previous post

I turned two of the stenciled images into holiday cards. 

The images were stenciled in the same color scheme. The bells and the candles were stenciled in Vanilla Frosted Cupcake, Beach Blondie and Amber Citrine, the Berries, bows and the poinsettia in Lipstick Red, Pink Derby and Wine, the greenery in Meadow and Spring Salad and the branch in Found Topaz.

After the stenciling was done I cut the images using the coordinating die.

The first one is showing the stenciled panel with three bells hanging on a pine branch.

I stenciled the Pine needles on a Kraft cardbase in Meadow and Everglade Moss and foam mounted the stenciled die cut image on it. Next I splattered white opaque ink on the whole card front and let it dry. 

I adhered Metallic Gold Dew Drops on the bells and Red Gems on the bows. 

The sentiment is from Ribbons Holiday stamp set which I partly heat embossed in gold and partly stamped in Basil Mojito. The sentiment was cut with the coordinating die and added to the card using foam tape. The small “HAPPY” was stamped in Noir on a white banner.

Next card is featuring the stenciled image of the candles on a poinsettia arrangement. 

I ink blended the bottom part of a dark red cardbase in Pink Derby and Wine to make the area even more darker and splattered white opaque ink on it. I then added the stenciled image with some white die cut Pine Sprigs to the card using foam tape. 

The sentiment is from Easy Expressions Hanukkah set which is partly heat embossed in gold and stamped in Noir

I finished off this card with a few Red Gems and by covering the flames with Crystal Stickles. 

That’s it from me for today! Hope you enjoyed looking my cards 🙂 !

Thank you so much for stopping by !
