Hi! I love to make cards with beautiful stamps. Sparkle N Sprinkle Happy Holidays 897 is a must have for all your Christmas cards. It comes with two beautiful sentiments and Holly Leaves (there are even more options on the Happy Holidays Digital Stamp [Digi897DE]. This time I decided to play with the Rubber Stamp.
Stamps: Happy Holidays 897;
Glitters: Diamond Dust [G1116];
Dies: Nellie Snellen (Photo Frames);
Cardstock: White, Green;
Embellishments: Adhesive Backed Snowflakes from Frozen Glitter Set [SQAF15], Nuvo Crystal Drops Autumn Red [683N];
I started with the sentiment layer. For that, I colored piece of white cardstock with Indian Gold Nuvo Embellishment Mousse using Mini Blender Brush by Tonic. After it was dry, I prepared the surface with Anti Static Bag, Stamped the sentiment with Versamark ink and heat embossed it with Timber Embossing Powder. I adhered two die cut frames on top of each other to make it look like the sentiment is inside of the picture frame.
I wanted to keep this card simple, so I didn't add many embellishments. I took two Adhesive Backed Snowflakes from Frozen Glitter Set and covered them with Diamond Dust Glitter. Then I cut them in half and tucked them behind the sentiment layer. Holly leaves was stamped with Nuvo Hybrid Ink Safari Green to the white cardstock. Immediately after stamping, I covered the leaves with Frosted Juniper Embossing Powder and heat set with heat tool. I fussy cut them with scissors and adhered to the card. I used Autumn Red Nuvo Crystal Drops to make few berries. I squeezed the drops to Non-Stick Craft Mat and let them dry. After card was done, I simply picked them from the Craft Mat and adhered them with the glue to my card. This way I can move the Crystal Drops around until I find their place :)
Background is made out of green cardstock. I stamped the Holly leaves all around with Versamark ink and heat embossed them with Frosted Juniper Embossing Powder. Frosted Juniper has a very nice green shimmer on it if the light hits on the right angle.
I made a paint Indian Gold Nuvo Embellishment Mousse and a bit of water and painted the edges of the background and centers of the leaves to gold. I splattered same gold paint to all over the background as well.
This is my simple Christmas card with Vintage feel. Take a look to the SNS blog to see what other Designers has made with this stamp set.
