Hello! Today I’ll be sharing some holiday inspirations with the latest Sunny Studio Stamps Holiday release!
My first showcases the Merry Mice stamp and dies and Christmas Garland frame die. I first stamped the mice in stockings in a dark brown hybrid ink and colored them up with copic markers. I then used the matching dies to die cut the images out.
Next, I die cut the Christmas Garland frame out of white card stock. I then used a blending brush to ink blend various green distress oxide inks onto the frame. The different green inks add variation and depth to the pine. I ink blended an A2 panel with a lighter green and yellow ink colors to back the frame and also added berries that I had die cut out of red card stock.
I stamped the sentiment in the bottom center and added my images above it with foam tape. Finally, I lightly dabbed on glue around each berry and sprinkled chunky glitter onto it to give it a sparkly look. After giving it a few minutes to dry, I used a brush to gently remove any loose glitter remaining on the card.
My next card showcases the Santa Claus Lane stamps and dies and Layered Snowflake Frame Die. Again, I stamped my images in a dark brown hybrid ink and colored them with copic markers. I die cut the images out with the matching dies.
My background costs of three layers. The bottom layer is ink blended with Blueprint Sketch, Broken China, and Tumbled Glass distress oxide inks and splattered with white paint. The center layer is die cut with the smaller of the two Layered Snowflake Frames out of white card stock and gently blended with Tumbled Glass distress oxide ink. The top layer is die cut with the larger of the two Layered Snowflake Frames out of white card stock and ink blended with Broken China and Tumbled Glass distress oxide inks. These layers were adhered together.
I used the large ‘merry christmas’ sentiment die from Christmas Garland frame die out of red card stock. This was added towards the bottom half of the card, with the images right above it with foam tape. Now that I’m in the glittery mood, I decided to dab some clear adhesive around the frame to add some chunky glitter around the snowflake frame for a sparkly final touch!
