Christmas Cards - Stampscapes


These are two Christmas cards that I made this year. I masked the area off with post-it notes and sponged colour onto the front of each card. I stamped my Stampscapes images in black. Then I dry embossed around the edges with my Scor-Buddy. I also made a fancy insert with masking for the insides. I used non-traditional colours for these cards and I'm pleased with the way they turned out.
I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas this year. :D

Christmas Bookmarks - Emboss Resist

I made 6 different bookmarks with the emboss-resist method. First I heat embossed the background with snowflakes or Christmas trees on white glossy cardstock. Then I sponged different colours of ink over the whole glossy piece. Then I mounted them on white cardstock with ink sponged around the edges and then mounted that onto a coloured cardstock. I added matching coloured yarns and ribbons to the top.


You can click on any of these photos to see the design up close.
Next is how I finished off the back of each bookmark.

It is fun to watch my family and friends picking out their bookmark. :D

Christmas Bookmarks - Snowmen Pyramid

Here is another bookmark that I made this year. It was stamped on white, coloured with markers and edged with silver marker. I drew the sign and outlined it in red. I added a red snowflake at the top. I love this little snowman stamp. I stamped it five times to make a snowman stack! Then I stamped some silver snowflakes around the snowmen and added glitter to the snowflakes with some stickles.
Here is a close-up.

Happy stamping! :D

My 100th Blogpost! Christmas Bookmarks - Christmas Characters

Merry Christmas season! This is my 100th blogpost! Wow! :D
I first stamped these tall bookmarks on white cardstock.  I sprayed two of them with spray inks and then glitter spray. Then I coloured them in with marker and added some stickles and added stitch marks around the edges with a fine black marker. The other two I coloured in with markers and a gitter marker and some stickles. Then I outlined them with a silver marker. Then I mounted them all onto black cardstock. I'm going to laminate them but wanted to take the photos first to prevent the glare from the laminating.
I hope you're having fun with all of your Christmas projects too!
