Mixing it Up Old and New
Hi there Imaginisce fans! Suzanna here today to share with you two holiday cards that I created mixing up the newer Happy Traveler collection some older goodies in my Imaginisce stash! As Imaginisce didn't release a Christmas line this year, I had to go back to Colors of Christmas and use two of the stamps as my main inspiration for these cards.
This first card was constructed around the holly stamp and you see in both corners of the card. I clear heat embossed the imagines and then used watercolors to color the images. It's the one time that painting outside the lines is acceptable in my Type A world! LOL!
The background behind the watercolor paper is from Happy Traveler for a nice pop of color. The card still needed a little something so I added some Hot Rocks with my iRock.
This next card has the snowflake stamps as the foundation. I shadow stamped them with grey as my base layer and embossed red just off set. I like the effect this created. The stamped images are on a Happy Traveler journaling spot! That same spot is backed with a die cut image that was cut using my Silhouette Cameo. The card base is also from Happy Traveler. I used the colors from the "B" side papers and was thrilled with the way the whole thing turned out!
The letters for "snow" go pretty deep into my stash and come from the Outdoor Adventure collection. They matched perfectly with the blue background and the darker shade stood out nicely against the red of the snowflakes.
Again, my iRock comes to the rescue for a little bling!
Have you begun your Christmas card making yet? These two cards kick of my card making for the season and I can't wait to create some more!
Thanks for popping in today!Suzanna
