At the October Christmas Cards Class, we had some fun with Shimmer Paint and the Beautiful Blizzard Stamp Set. This Stamp Set makes gorgeous Christmas cards quickly and easily!
I decided to use a combination of Pool Party and Night of Navy.
First we stamped the “sploosh” from the Beautiful Blizzard Stamps Set onto Thick Whisper White Cardstock. In a Stampin’ Spritzer filled about 2/3 with rubbing alcohol, I added a couple of drops of Frost White Shimmer Paint. We lightly spritzed the “sploosh” images with that mixture, then set it aside a couple of minutes to dry. After it was dry, we stamped the snowflakes in Night of Navy. I also stamped the sentiment in Night of Navy. For another “sparkly” layer, I added a couple of rhinestones. Lots of snowy beauty!
I also used the Pool Party and Night of Navy color combo with the second card. The snowflakes are from the Colorful Seasons Thinlits Dies set. I used Champagne Foil paper. Sentiment is stamped in Night of Navy and punched out using the Everyday Label Punch.
Beautiful Blizzard is a perfect holiday stamps set, and it has a coordinating die to create even more projects! Get the Bundle on my online store and save 10%!
For this card, I decided to go with the classical elegance of red, black and white. I used Real Red Cardstock for the background, then the Cable Knit Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder for the top layer. The sentiment from Timeless Tidings is stamped in Real Red and mounted on Real Red Cardstock cut using the Starburst Punch. Red Rhinestones and Basic Black 3/8″ Shimmer Ribbon were the perfect finishing touches.
The Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper is just perfect for fall and Christmas projects, and I love this plaid! I used the Pinewood Planks Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder on the Cherry Cobbler and Crumb Cake Cardstock to add some depth and dimension. The sentiment from Beautiful Blizzard is stamped in Cherry Cobbler.
