Oh Christmas Tree


I love this two part Watercolor Christmas Tree and the matching Watercolor Christmas Tree Die Cut! I posted a card using this stamp last month and the card looks completely different, here it is below and you can see the original post HERE.
 

I really like to get stamps that can be used to make cards that will look completely different, that way you get more bang for your buck!

To make today's card,
1.  I inked the stamp with Twisted Citron, then randomly dabbed the tree with Mowed Lawn and Pine Needles. 
2.  Before I stamped it on watercolor paper, I wiped off the stem and colored it with a brown Zig Clean Color Real Brush Marker.  
3.  Then the stamp was spritzed with water several times and stamped.  The stamped was cleaned and the process was done again for the second tree.  
4.  The third tree was done the same way but stamped on a separate sheet of watercolor paper, dried then the lights were stamped in black, embossed with clear and it was die cut and set aside.
5.  A mask was placed over the trees and blue ink was sponged around them and water down blue ink was splattered on the panel before the masks were removed.
6.  Drops of White Nuvo Drops were added to the tree and die cut snow flakes were glued on. The panel was then layered onto black and mounted to a kraft colored card.  The die cut tree was then popped up in the middle of the two trees.

Pinecone Decoration



The count down is on and I'm still not done with my cards...uh oh!  The Pinecone Decoration stamp from Stampendous is pretty and festive.  It's colored with Prisma Pencils and the Fitted Frames B Die Set was used to cut it out and to layer it on a larger black frame. I added a touch of gold with the Champagne PEARLustre Embossing Powder, Dot Sparklers and the gold cord bow at the top.

Christmas Roses


Today's Christmas Roses card has so much going on like stamps, stencils, die cuts, embossing powder and Dot Sparklers! All of these come together to create a beautiful Christmas card.

Here's how it was made:
1.  The Stampendous Christmas Roses is colored with Prisma pencils then die cut with Fitted Frames.  
2.  The background is stenciled with Bricks Metal Stencil, I didn't mask the image, just placed the stencil over the stamped image and sponged through the stencil, starting at the outside edge moving inward, being careful to stop before I got to the image.  
3.  The red die cut piece was sprinkled with Shabby White Embossing Enamel and heated from underneath so the powder wasn't blown off. That was then layered onto a Brick stencil panel and all pieces were mounted on a red card. 4.  The sentiment was stamped and embossed on a red strip and glued to the top of the card.

Tis The Season


Welcome to Rubberneck Stamps Sweet Sunday Team Inspiration Day. Hope you've started your Christmas cards but if you haven't, here's a little inspiration for you.  This cute Snowman With Arms was stamped on white paper, colored with Prisma Pencils and blended with gamsol.  After the snowman was die cut,  the bottom was embossed with Shabby White Embossing Powder and heated from underneath so the powder doesn't blow off.  Decorative chalk was applied around the snowman with a flat brush. Tis The Season was stamped with blue, layered on blue and popped up.

Gift Giving


Christmas is just about a month away and it's time to get those Christmas cards mailed, if you haven't already.  Yeah, I need to get on that!!  I do like a bit of bling and shimmer on my cards and this Gift Giving image from Stampendous made it easy to add just the right amount sparkle.

Here's how my card was made;
1.  Stamp Gift Giving on white cardstock with black ink and color with watercolor pencils.
2.  Sprinkle Shabby White Embossing Enamel at the bottom of the image, use a small brush to wipe off of the image and heat emboss from underneath, so the embossing enamel doesn't blow off.
3.  Sponge the top with blue ink, glue to a red panel and tie the left edge with gold cord.
4.  Pop up on a green card, then place a strip of Sticky Panels below the image and sprinkle with Gold Micro Fine Glitter.
