Merry Christmas

Hello everyone,

I'm back with another Christmas card for you using the Trim the Tree stamp set.  And did you know we now have coordinating dies as well?

I started out with a pice of watercolour paper and I added a couple of different blues to the card with my watercolour paints.  I did this in layers and heat set each layer before adding more colour.  I happen to love the harsher lines this technique gives.

I then stamped the ornaments in Versamark and heat embossed it with silver embossing powder.  I then took my Versamark pen and added the lines that the ornaments are hanging from and heat embossed them again along with the sentiment.

I then added a few dots using the Nuvo drops in glitter and let that dry before adhering the panel onto a card base.  I always manage to stick my finger in these dots thinking they are dry enough, and they never are.  But this time I put the card up so I wouldn't keep checking on them.  ;)

Thanks for stopping by, see you again soon!

  1. A very pretty card Coralynn. I have to say, I LOVE this set! Those ornaments remind me of what my mother and grandmother always had on their trees when we grew up!

    1. Thanks so much Teresa. We had a few of these as well when I was growing up too. xx
