Hello, hello crafty friends and welcome to the most awesome event in the universe, Simon Says Stamp Create Joy Blog Hop! Hooray!!
Simon Says Stamp always amaze me and these winter holiday goodies are (I promise!) beyond amazing! Just WOW!!
For my first card, I made a watercolour Christmas wreath card. SSS For To Us stamp set, It led me straight into the watercolour project!
To create my own Christmas wreath, I 1) Traced the circle on watercolour paper panel with watercolor pencil. 2) Stamped the leaves repeatedly along the circle line with Bundled Sage Distress ink, then brushed them using waterbrush. 3) Coloured the wreath with several colours of Distress markers using waterbrush, then added ink splatters.
Oh, I love this super adorable chef bear! He doesn’t just simply cook food – he creates holiday magic using his own magical powers ;)
To create the card, I 1) Stamped Lattice Grid Background on watercolour paper panel using embossing ink, heat embossed with white embossing powder. 2) Coloured on the stamped panel with Festive Berries Distress ink using a wet paintbrush. 3) Stamped the chef bear, Bear Necessities stamp set, on watercolour paper using black pigment ink, then coloured them with Distress markers and then die cut them with the matching dies. 4) Die cut Ornament Wreath from white card stock (3 times) and then affixed them together using find tip glue pen -I made ornament wreath die cut thicker. 5) Die cut Ring Wreath out of scrapes of SSS coloured card stock -I just used the small circle die cuts. 6) Mounted all elements as shown to the kraft card base using dimensional foam tape. 7) Embellished with a few PPP clear droplets and gold sequins.
For my last card, I used oh-so-cute Christmas Cats and awesome Doodle Background Stamps. For my own rainbow background, I 1) Stamped Doodle Background on watercolour paper panel using embossing ink, heat embossed with white embossing powder. 2) Coloured the stamped panel with (from top to bottom) Fired Brick, Wild Honey, Crushed Olive, Peacock Feathers, and Faded Jeans Distress inks using a wet paintbrush. For these lovely cats, I coloured them with Copic markers.
