Digital Printables and New Background Stamps for Holiday

Hello and happy Friday, everyone! It’s TaeEun here today with three holiday cards and tags! I used some of our new background stamps released in November and digital printables from our store.

Let’s start with a couple of shaker cards.

TT1207 all WM

Recently I played with our new digital items. I foiled some of in black printed Christmas Trees and I thought I could use the negative pieces of the beautiful foils to make shaker cards. So I made two of them ūüôā !¬†¬†The golden Christmas tree was turned into a tag and the teal one was used on a card in my previous post.

TT1207 1 2 WM

To create the front panel of this card I cut the Christmas Tree from a A2 sized white cardstock and blended Pink Derby, Red Sangria Hybrid ink and Soft Garnet on the panel. I then stamped Modern Plaid Cling background stamp in Hampton white pigment ink on it. I cut it using Double Stitched Rectangle Die.

TT1207 1 CU1 WM

I adhered the negative gold foil of a Christmas Tree and a clear acetate piece behind the shaker window. To make the background I blended Soft Garden and Caribbean Turquoise on the center of the cardbase, added white dots using a white gel pen and adhered some sequins from Misty Mint Couture Mix which I used to fill the shaker along with Pink Blossoms Couture Mix. I gold heat embossed the tiny snowflakes from Holiday Ballet stamp set on some white cardstock, cut it with the coordinating dies and blended Soft Garnet on some of the snowflakes. I added them as tree decorations to finish off the card.

TT1207 1 tag WM

I made the golden Christmas Tree¬†into a tag. I’ve made more tags with the colorful Christmas Tree¬†by simply printing and cutting them.

The making process of the second shaker is actually the same as the first one.

TT1207 2 2 WM

This time I white heat embossed the Confetti Party Cling stamp on the front panel and blended Violet Fringe, Deep Sapphire, Cali Blue and Hot Tourmaline .

TT1207 2 CU new

The blue to pink ombre background was created by blending Cali Blue, Caribbean Turquoise, Soft Garnet and Red Sangria Hybrid ink. To fill the shaker I chose Midnight Frost Couture Mix and Light Blue Topaz Sparkling Clear sequins.

TT1207 3 3 WM

The next holiday card is showcasing Holiday Ornaments Printables. This file includes black and colored version of Christmas ornaments. I printed the black ornaments to foil them in various colors.

TT1207 3 CU1 WM

The foiled ornaments were fussy cut ( You can use the coordinating dies of Holiday Ornaments stamp set.). I adhered some Adhesive Foil Paper Gold as the cap on the ornaments.

TT1207 3 4 WM

I made the background panel using Gansai Tambi watercolor in purple, blue and pink on some watercolor paper, cut it using Double Stitched Rectangle Die and foam mounted it on a pink cardbase.  The gold heat embossed sentiment is from Blizzard Hugs set. I then added the ornaments with a golden thread onto the card using some foam adhesive.

That was the last card I made for today’s post! Hope I was able to inspire you!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Hugs,

TaeEun

 

 

 

 

Quick and Easy Holiday Cards

Hello everyone! I’m back with several card videos today featuring quick and easy holiday cards using some of our new stamps from this season. A few of the cards were featured in our recent releases. However, they’re accompanied by videos today(YAY!!)!¬†Be sure to follow us on YouTube¬†for more inspiration! I update our channel on a weekly basis!

Poinsettia Banner on Kraft

poin banner kraft

For my first card, I used our Poinsettia Banner stamp set.

I started off by stamping the Poinsettia Banner image and sentiment onto white cardstock using our Noir Dye Ink. Then I colored in the poinsettias, foliage and banner with Tombow Dual Tip markers (#885, 296, 133 and 95). Once I finished coloring, I die cut the image using the coordinating die.

Next I took an A2 kraft card panel and swiped some Warm Hazelnut Dye Ink across the entire card front. Then I added stitching to the panel using the two larges dies from our Double Stitched Rectangles (Large) Die set. I adhered the panel onto a side folding cardbase and then popped up my main image onto the panel. Lastly, I embellished the card using our Clear Dew Drops.

Holly Branch Border Card

For my next card I created a festive border using our Holly Branch set.

I stamped the outline holly branch in a border pattern onto an A2 card panel using our Noir Dye Ink. Then I stamped the solid images within the outline image using the outline image as a guide to easily add stamped color onto the holly clusters. The inks that I used to stamp the clusters are Soft Garden Dye, Valentine Red Dye and Warm Hazelnut Dye Inks. Next I stamped the sentiment from the same set in our Noir Dye Ink.

I created a top folding card base and added Yellow Gold Burnished Foil Tape to the top and bottom edges. Next I trimmed my stamped panel at the top and bottom edges and mounted it onto my base. Lastly I embellished my card using our Clear Dew Drops.

Two Folk Art Christmas Tree Cards

tree

For my blue Folk Art Christmas Tree card, I started off by stamping the large tree image onto white cardstock (A2 size) with our True Navy Dye Ink. Then I embossed the image with clear embossing powder. Next I sponged on different shades of ink (Cali Blue Dye, Miami Cool Dye, Italian Denim Dye and Grape Crush Dye) onto the white areas surrounding my tree. Then I added stitching to the edges of the panel using the largest die from our Double Stitched (Large) Rectangles die set. Lastly, I mounted the panel onto a side folding base.

For my red Folk Art Christmas Tree card, I white heat embossed the tree onto a red card panel. Then I clear heat embossed some of the small elements in the areas surrounding the tree. Once my embossing was complete, I added stitching to the edges of my card and mounted the panel onto a side folding A2 cardbase.

So that completes my holiday card post featuring four quick and easy cards that you can make last minute if needed. Thanks for stopping by and happy holidays, everyone!!
