Green Christmas!

December 02, 2015

Hi there!

It's Yolanda here, from Scraping Time. Today, I want to share with you a couple of works made with some of the cuttest Christmas stamps from the shop: Deck the Halls, Holiday Friends and Peeking Friends. All of them are clear stamps and I love how adorable they are!

When I started thinking about this post, I thought I wanted to use any bright colour since I`m usually making softer cards lately. Then, I chose a vibrant green and this was the first idea to choose my papers, cardstocks and even the stamps, since the first one I decided to use was the cute elf.



I stamped all the stamps with Memento and coloured it with Spectrum Noir Markers.  Then, I fussy cut them without leaving any white line on the borders.

For the card, I cut with the big shot 3 stitched rectangles in green cardstock, red decorated paper and white cardstock. I made a cute border on the top of the white panel and I used it to hide one of the elfs. Then I die cut three stars. I hided the other elf into the biggest one, then I put some acetate and I made three different shakers with the stars. For the smallest ones I used micro beads and for the biggest one I used white and pink glitter. I just wanted to give it some shine when you move it!


Then, I sticked the three panels on a green base and I stamped the sentiment from "Peeking friends stamps" with red Hero Arts Ink.



For the tag, I used the biggest one from Mama Elephant and I decided to use acetate for the panel but in this occassion I chose translucent acetate since it is stronger than the clear one. I used two different reindeers and I used the same colours as I did in my card.


These reindeers are so much fun and I used some wink of stella clear on the nose (where I also put some glossy accent later), the hats and the reindeers hoof. 

I used some white embossing powder for the sentiment and I used a second red tag as a base. I love bows so I used a red one to finish my tag.


It was great to make these works for today and I hope you enjoy! Have a great week!! :)
