Meowy Christmas!!

December 30, 2015

Hi there!!

It's Yolanda here, from Scraping Time saying goodbye to the year with these two cards. 
I hope 2016 brings you happiness and "stamps"... lots of "stamps"!!...

For these cards I am going to show you today, I have been playing with the cute "Deck the Halls" clear stamps set. I think these stamps are gorgeous and have so many possibilities for your Christmas cards since it includes a couple of cute sentiments, the cool cat and some small stamps which are so useful to make nice backgrounds or maybe to play as I have done today with my cards.

Firstly, I am going to show you a card, where the cat is wishing you a "Meowy Christmas".


I decided to stamp the sentiment into a frame and I did some masking to add a couple of balls to the main stamp. I also stamped the bold star from the set into the big ball.


Then, I thought it could be nice to add some lights on the top with that small stamp included in the set. I am not so good handwritting in my cards so I decided to stamp the string with a part of a sentiment. After that, I stamped one by one the little light bulb included on the set with Memento Black ink, colouring all the stamps with Spectrum Noir Markers.


Then, I did a line with a pencil and I fussy cut with the scissors my panel to add a wood decorated paper to make the scene more realistic.

To finish the card, I added some Wink of Stella Clear to the small details.


Once I had made this card I thought that I wanted to use again the small Christmas lights and then I decided to make the second card. In this occasion I needed my Memento Black Marker to make the main part of the card.

I decided to put the lights around a heart shape giving the main power to the sentiment in the middle of the heart,


 I encourage you to give it a try if you have this set. It´s a CAS result that I am sure you will enjoy.

First of all, I die cut a false stitched square and a heart with my Big Shot. I used it as a template to make my card. Then, I drew the heart with the black marker.


It was time to stamp all the lights. Once I did it, I coloured it with Spectrum Noir Markers and I added some Wink of Stella Clear in all of them.
Finally, I stamped the sentiment with Versafine Black Ink.


I really enjoyed playing with this set and I say goodbye to 2015 with these two cards, 
I wish you all the best and see you in 2016!!

Hugs from Spain!!
