Some quick cards using the Holly Jolly Layers stamp set (which is a Hostess set from the Holiday Catalogue). I made them a few weeks ago and used one of the versions for a Stamp-A-Stack.
I kept the layout the same on both and used different stamps in the set. On both of the cards the base is Real Red. Then a Crumb Cake mat on which I stamped the string of lights down the bottom in Crumb Cake. The piece was then run through the Big Shot with the Softly Falling Embossing Folder. Once adhered to the card base I added a strip of the Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper.
TO STAMP THE IMAGES.
For the card on the Left: I stamped the greeting in Real Red and cut the piece with the Layering Squares Framelits. A larger square in Chocolate Chip was cut with the next size up square in the Framelits and then a Scallop Square from the Layering Squares was cut from Real Red Glimmer Paper. They were all adhered together and then raised off the base card with Dimensionals.
For the card on the Right: I stamped the circle greeting in Real Red and cut this out with a Scallop Framelit from the Layering Circles Framelits. After cleaning the stamp then ink it up with Garden Green BUT BEFORE stamping use your Blender Pen to wipe off the “berries”in the centre of the holly. This is done by wiping off the ink on the stamp and then wiping the tip of the Blender pen on to scrap paper to take off excess ink. It might take a couple of goes. Once it is clean you can use your Real Red Marker to colour in the berries. THEN, you can stamp the image on to Whisper White card and cut it out with (I think) the 1 1/4″ Circle Punch. (Just check the size. It could have been the 1 3/8” Circle punch. It was some time ago that I made it).
These pieces were then adhered together with Dimensionals in between and then using Dimensionals to raise it up off the card.
Hope all your plans are coming together for Christmas.
See you again soon,
