Hey everyone! Welcome back to another Christmas Card series. Today I'm showing you more of the cards that I made along with the one that I entered into the Color Throwdown Challenge. Link to that post here.
Watch video here.
I'm really loving the darker colors in these 8 designs but that is totally my aesthetic. So let me know in the comments what your favorite colorway for these are!
I'm definitely glad that I have a stamp positioning tool. I couldn't imagine trying to do this with out it. For one thing I was able to stamp an image several times if I didn't ink it up correctly. Secondly, it just makes mass production so easy.
Another thing is that I was able to stamp multiple snowflakes at the same time and then emboss them using one of the many colors of embossing powder. I know a lot of long time stampers probably did this with just an acrylic block. But I sure am thankful that it is so much easier now with these newer tools.
I really enjoyed using all these embossing powders. That Black Sparkle embossing powder by Ranger is my everything. I just can't get over how gorgeous it is.
These two cards though..... I... just ... love them. The black and white one is totally me lol. I'm tempted to horde that one forever!
But the Soft Navy cardstock from Simon is so pretty and paired with the Mermaid & Gold embossing powder is stunning. I'm so glad I have that Mermaid embossing powder from a past Simon Says Stamp card kit! Hooray! It just has an amazing blue color with tons of sparkle.
Red though is truly my favorite color (if you think black isn't a color HA!) I just love the depth of the Black Soot Distress Oxide ink around the School house red cardstock. Plus it's paired with the gold and black sparkle embossing powder. Also I really like the pop of green on both of these.
Alright, I had so much just playing around with these. Before attempting to make all these I drew out a color map of the cardstock, embossing powders and stamps that I thought would look best together. So this was not a fly a the seat of my pants kind of mass production. I thought about all these lol.
