SSS STAMPtember® Winter Floral Christmas Cards

Hello crafty friends, happy Wednesday!
Today I have a couple of cheerful Christmas cards using the Winter Floral Mix Background stamp along with other Simon products.
To create the card, I stamped the Winter Floral Mix Background onto watercolour paper using VersaFine Onyx Black first, and then trimmed the stamped paper down with 4.25″ x 5.5″ Basic Rectangle Panel die.
I coloured all stamped images with watercolour pencils. For poinsettias, I coloured lighter one leaf and darker another leaf one by one with just one red watercolour pencil. I used Derwent watercolour pencils. I then added water to all watercolour penciled images using a wet paint brush.
For the sentiment, I die cut the Big Joy Word from metallic gold card stock one time & white card stock 4 times, then stacked them up using fine tip glue pen. I decorated the card with natural hemp cord & jingle bells.

Here is another card with the Winter Floral Mix Background stamp.
I stamped & watercoloured the floral images, then added opaque white ink splatters. For the sentiment, I used “Happiest of Holidays” in the CZ Design Ho Ho Postage stamp set.
I added beautiful snowflakes onto the card front – I used the Kate & Rina Snowflake dies.

Making Christmas cards are always so fun and feel very cozy!! I love it so much. :D

SSS STAMPtember® Poinsettia Christmas Card

Happy weekend, crafty friends!
Today I want to share with you my watercoloured Christmas card using beautiful Poinsettia Background stamp. It is officially my first Christmas card of the year!
The new STAMPtember Poinsettia Background Stamp is a very elegant look. We can make beautiful and traditional Christmas cards with it.
I started by stamping Poinsettia Background onto watercolour paper using VersaFine Onyx Black. I then trimmed the stamped paper down using the 4.25″ x 5.5″ Basic Rectangle Panel die. I coloured the stamped images with Altenew Watercolor 36 Pan Set.
Red and green are traditional colours for Christmas. I love using this classic colour combo during Christmas season! I think you’re probably the same as me!

Once the watercoloured panel was dry, I used the Stitched Circle die to cut, twice with two different sizes, in the centre of the panel, and then mounted them as shown in the picture on white card base using foam tape. I added opaque white ink splatters using Altenew Pure White Ink Spray.
For the sentiment, I used the CZ Design Joyful dies. I die cut the word “joyful” from Dark Chocolate card stock, shadow from Cream card stock.
Christmas… just the thought of it makes me very happy. :D

SSS Christmas Tree Shaker Cards

Happy Thursday crafty friends!
I have a couple of Christmas tree shaker cards today using some SSS tree window dies: Birch Circle & Tree Frame.
This is what I made in December last year. I love making snowy winter scene with tree window dies so I couldn’t resist making another beautiful winter night scene this year!

Here is what I came up with:
For this card, I used the Birch Circle die along with other SSS products.
I die cut the Stitched Whirl Background from cream card stock, and also die cut the Birch Circle window from the same coloured cream paper panel.
For the snowy night scene, I ink blended to the Stitched Whirl Background panel with Peacock Feathers, Faded Jeans, and Seedless Preserves Distress inks.
I stamped deers, house, trees from the Winter Scene set on watercolour paper using VersaFine Onyx Black, coloured them with Hero Arts Watercolor Wheel, and then die cut them with the matching dies. I die cut tiny snowflakes from white card stock using the Stitched Flakes die as well. I adhered the acetate behind the Birch Circle window, added coarse glitterssparkling clear sequins to the centre of the Stitched Whirl Background panel, and then covered the Birch Circle window panel.
I decorated the card front with some snowflake die cuts, watercoloured objects.
For the sentiment, I used the Tiny Words Christmas Stamp Set.

Here is another Christmas tree shaker card with the Tree Frame die. I used the same technique like my first card here.
I love this intricate tree frame die so much!

Thank you so much for stopping by. Happy crafting!!

Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!
