Christmas, Tim Holtz & Adirondack Inks


Evening Everyone

What have you all been up to today?
Well today I would like to share with you another Christmas Card! Using my favourite products from Ranger.

Tim Holtz Christmas Stamp Set
Adirondack Inks (Lettuce and Cranberry)
Archival Ink (Black)
8″X8″ Card (White)
Die Cut Circle
Black Gloss Card
Black Gems

1. Place your die cut circle centrally onto a 7″sq piece of ultra smooth card and stamp round with the poinsettia stamp to create a wreath in you desired colour pallet. When you remove the circle you will be able to go in and add more poinsettia to even it up.
2. Using the same Adirondack inks that you have chosen, take a blending tool and distress the middle of the wreath and the outer edges of the card. To get the lines in the middle I randomly added the same colour pallet that I had used to the edge of an acrylic block and stamped into the centre. You could achieve this same effect with a ruler or use a crackle stamp to add depth.
When you are happy with your wreath
3. Stamp the Gentleman and Merry Christmas Stamp in Archival Ink.
4. Matt the finished piece onto 7 1/2″ sq piece of black gloss card, then mount onto your 8″sq card. Finally add some black gems to the centre of the ribbon on the gentleman’s wreath and top left/bottom right to some of the centres on the flowers.

TaDa All Done

If you do have a go at this please send me some photos then we can put them on here. I may do another of these in a different colour pallet and put glossy accents on the Gentleman.

Back Soon
