Claire's Stampin' Up! 12 days of Christmas Day 9 - Season of Joy
November 12, 2009
Today's Christmas card is an old favourite and even a design I have made before, but in different colours. Who doesn't love this stamp from Season of Joy though? It's so easy to do things to to jazz it up a bit.
This time I inked the stamp up in Baja Breeze ink, and then coloured over the top with my markers (so long as you are colouring over the top of a lighter colour there won't be any contamination. I have used my Chocolate Chip and Old Olive Stampin' Write Marker to add some colour and then I have added Christal Effects to the Old Olive sections. I have also placed real red brads through the top 3 green flowers, and punched out a red snowflake to layer in the word 'joy' with a rhinestone brad on it (I cut the prongs off with scissors and attached with a glue dot as I needed it flatter in this case). So here's a full run down of what I have used:
- Stamps: Season of Joy
- Ink: Baja Breeze, Chocolate Chip (for sponging edges), Riding Hood Red
- Cardstock: Whisper White, Riding Hood Red, Chocolate Chip
- Paper: Ski Slope Designer Series Paper (only available until November 30th)
- Other: Old Olive and Chocolate Chip Stampin' Write Marker, 1/2" circle punch, Real Red brads (in the Bold Brights), Circle Fire Rhinestone Brads, Crystal Effects, Eyelet Border punch, Riding Hood Red striped grosgrain ribbon.
I hope you enjoy todays card. I'll be back tomorrow (and I mean it this time!) with day 10!
