Today I have three cards to share with you from the October 2020 Release line.
O Holy Night
Stencil:  Shining Star
How I made it:
  • I used gold pigment ink through the Shining Star stencil to create the background.  I moved the stencil around and used some parts of it to add more stars.  I added blue distressing along the edges with an ink blending brush.  I layered this panel to an A2 card front, along with some gold cording.
  • I embossed the Brightly Shining stamp in gold on a smaller panel, distressed the edges, and added it to the card with foam tape. 
Merry Christmas


How I made it:

  • I inked the Snow Covered Pines stamp onto bristol cardstock with distress inks in yellow and pinks.  I used the Misti so that I could repeat the stamping until I had the inks blended well, and coverage was complete.   I added this panel to an A2 card front.
  • I stamped Dotted Merry Christmas onto a paper scrap and cut it with a label die from my stash.  I distressed the edges, added some
    brads, and attached it to the card front.
  • INSIDE:  I created a color area with an old stencil from my stash, and stamped the verse from the O Christmas Tree Set of 4.
Christmas Gnome With Balloon
How I made it:
  • I created the background on the card front with the Flower Explosion Stencil and distress ink. 
  • I stamped the gnome from the Gnome For Christmas Set of 6 onto white bristol card stock, and watercolored it.  I drew a balloon, then a string going to the gnome.  I traced a tag die around the images.
  • Using gray distress ink, I distressed the edges, and added the tag to the card front.  
  • I stamped the image from the Santa Mail Set of 2  and watercolored it.  I added a red gem to the snowflake.
  • INSIDE:  I used the Half Sun Stencil and the verse from the gnome set.
