Hi everyone! I am back with a second post with cards made with Simon Says Stamp Holiday Card Kit inspired by Tim Holtz. In the first post, I shared four cards, in this one there are three. I still have plenty of leftovers. The kit is full of fabulous stamps, ink, papers and embellishments.
I love the stamp set in the kit, which is made up of various Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous stamps, and they are of a different size than the same stamps in the ordinary sets. The stamps are perfect for building little winter scenes and here I used the sheets of Ranger's watercolour paper, which are also in the kits, as my base. By varying the stamps, placements, orientation of the card and inks you can create a lot of different scenes.
I picked up the ink with a paint brush and painted two simple hills and some clouds on the smoother side of the watercolour paper. Leave to dry or dry with a heat gun.
To continue the watercolour look, ink up the trees with Evergreen Bough, mist about three times with water and stamp. Repeat two more times, varying the placement of the trees. You can wipe of the base of the trunks a bit to make it look like they are standing in snow (I forgot this on the trees to the left). Ink the snowflakes with Iced Spruce and stamp twice. Finish with a sentiment stamped and Festive Berries.
The kit also contains a whole bunch of kraft-core cardstock, something that I use a lot in my crafting. It is one of my favourite papers. One of my favourite things to do with kraft-core cardstock is to dry emboss it, and it makes for a quick and great background. After embossing, I sanded the card to reveal the kraft-core and inked it with Gathered Twigs. Finally, I used the Rock Candy Stickles in the kit and smeared the whole background with a very thin layer.
Thank you so much for looking! For more inspiration, check out my first post using the kit. Hurry so that you can get your kit before they are sold out!
