Inspired Stamps Christmas Projects

Welcome back to this week's Inspired Stamps post, all about Christmas!  Today I have a couple of projects to share.  First, is a Christmas card, using His Little Ones - Winter Boy & Ask, Seek, Knock sets.

I stamped the tree image from the Ask, Seek, Knock stamp set with Versamark on white cardstock, and heat embossed it using white embossing powder.  The tree was coloured using Distress Inks direct-to-paper technique. To give it a little shimmer, I brushed some Perfect Pearls powder on the tree, and spritzed some water to set it.  Once dry, I added some gems to the tree.  The HLO Winter Boy was coloured with Copic markers and Atyou Spica pens for some sparkle.  Then it was time to cut out the images and assemble the card.

Next, is a simple tag idea.  First I embossed the tag using a Snowflake embossing folder and then inked some Distress Inks over it (I used Evergreen Bough & Festive Berries).  The Snowman, from Let It Snow set, was stamped on white cardstock, coloured with Copic markers and I applied some Glossy Accents & glitter on the buttons and top of his hat.  The sentiment was stamped using Label Maker Alphabet set.

Hope you like these projects, and don't forget there is a special running till end of the week at the Inspired Stamps store, see below for the coupon code:
