Holiday Village Cards

Hi everyone, I'm very excited to be guest designing this month for Dare 2B Artzy.  I fell in love with this new  Holiday Village stamp set.  This 10 piece stamp set has all you need to create some fun holiday cards.

Using Spellbinders dies, I created an oval easel card by die cutting Bazzill cardstock, but leaving the top of the die free to create the card base.  I scored the top panel to create the easel.  Then I die cut another oval which created the top of the card and I adhered to the scored panel.  Next, I stamped the image and colored  it with Copic Markers.  Then I die cut the stamped image with the next smaller die.  So as not to cur off the banner, I fussy cut around it and slipped the die behind it.

Once the stamped panel was added to the card, I used Nuvo Drops to create dimension on sections of the snow on the houses.  Then I used Liquid Pearls to add dimension to the trees and berries.

I stamped two different phrases which were included in this set and die cut each with smaller oval dies.  Each was matted with red cardstock and one of them was adhered to the upper right section of the card.  I placed foam adhesives under the second phrase and used it as the "stopper" to hold the card upright. 

I loved the set so much I had to create a second card using the included music stamps to create the background of the card.   

I also colored the image with Copic Markers, then die cut it with a shaped die.  I used the next larger die to mat the image so it would stand out on the background.  Next, I added Nuvo Drops and Liquid Pearls about the image for dimension.  

For the card base, I stamped the included music stamps on a panel of white which was cut to fit my card.  Since I was adding the stamped village panel to the center of the card, I saw no need to add music notes in the center of the panel.

The stamped village panel was then added to the card with foam adhesives for dimension.  Joy to the World, also included with this stamp set was stamped, die cut, added to a larger red circle then added to the card in the lower right.

Thanks for stopping by.
