Merry Christmas - Creative Scrapbooker

Hello Friends its Karan here with you today on the Creative Scrapbooker blog sharing a Christmas card with you using Heartfelt Creations paper, stamps and coordinating dies.



What i love about the collections from Heartfelt Creations is how easy it is to create gorgeous cards by just adding a few die cut images.  I am working with the papers from the Festive Holly Collection; (link here:  https://www.heartfeltcreations.us/shop/product-collections/festive-holly) Stamps and dies also from the Festive Holly Collection and the small poinsettias are from Celebrate the Season (link here: https://www.heartfeltcreations.us/shop/product-collections/celebrate-the-season) Collection.

Today I am using distress inks from Ramger and Zig Clean Color Brush Markers from Kuretake to color my images. Lets get started; stamp out your images on canson water color paper using Archival Coffee Ink. Begin to color with the zig makers. I used the following colors.


and colored my stamped images like this


here is the lantern


die cut out above images, then stamp poinsettias from Celebrate the Season on canson water color paper using Archival Coffee Ink.  Using a finger dauber; color using Aged Mahogany and Peeled paint from Ranger! 


pierce hole in center using a piercing tool, turn over and mist from back


lightly mold from the back


insert stamens by adding a drop of dries clear adhesive in center pull stamen through and let dry.


For my Background pattrn paper; I chose this image from the papers and cut to 5.75 x 5.75 and used the Fleur borders on the bottom; and again on the white card which is 6x7


layer the die cut images on top using foam adhesive. 



attach the mini poinsettias to the holly leaves; be sure to cut off the wire from the stamens. Wrap some gold ribbon around the right side of the card; add some gold thread and a couple trinket pins.
 Detail with Glue gloss and crystal clear. 



final detail is to add Nuvo Morning Dew to the berries on the pattern paper image. Nuvo will dry with some added dimension and make those berries pop.


Stamp the Merry Christmas on a coordinating paper, and lightly ink edges 
with Aged Mahogany Distress Ink



Enjoy creating cards for your friends and family using the papers, 
stamps and dies from Heartfelt Creations. (link; https://www.heartfeltcreations.us/)
