Wishing you a safe and Blessed Merry Christmas,  dear friends!

I used another alcohol ink background from my stash.  I am so happy that I made a bunch of alcohol ink backgrounds using what I thought would work for possible Christmas cards.  It sure makes for easy card designs:-)

I die cut the panel with one of the Basic A2 Stencils Nesting Dies.  Then attached my Sanna Christmas Wreaths Stencil over the panel and secured with masking tape. This was my 1st time to outline only 1/2 of the stencil and include the small wreath.  Then outlined the leaves and berries thru the stencil with an 03 Black Art Pen.

Removed stencil and used Derwent watercolor pencils to color in the red berries and then colored berries with Prismacolor pencils for richer dark red berries.

I then used Staedler black pen to outline all the leaves and berries.  
I popped up the panel using craft foam and attached to die cut red cardfront that I had die cut with the Basic A2 Stencils Nesting Dies.  Love this set.  There are 10 dies in the set.  I then nested 2 of the nesting dies to make a thin black CS frame for the panel.  

Stamped the sentiment from the Christmas Reindeer stamp set onto white cardstock,  trimmed and popped up with craft foam,  attached to cardbase and Done!

Enjoy and Happy Holidays,  dear friends.  May 2021 bring control of the pandemic through out the world and Peace.  Love and Hugs..

STAMPlorations December Stencil Challenge

Time for STAMPlorations December Stencil Challenge: Anything Goes as long as you use at least one Stencil by any company,  but we love when you use one or more STAMPloration stencils:-)

Clear Stickers Joy to the World
Monika Skinner Designs Circle Flexi-Templates
ARTplorations Sanna Lippert Designs Christmas Tree 1

I chose an Ranger Alcohol Ink on Yupo paper background from my stash.  Next die cut the background with "Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies" using the 2nd to largest die from the set.

Then placed the "Christmas Tree 1" Stencil over 100# white cardstock and secured with masking tape.  Used sponge dauber to apply Versamark thru the stencil.
Removed stencil and heat embossed with Ranger Distress Embossing Glaze (Cracked Pistacchio).  

Next placed "Circle Flexi-Template" over part of the trees.  Then used makeup brushes to blend Distress Oxide blue shades.  Added a larger Circle Flexi-Template and added green Distress Oxide inks.  I loved Monika's Flexi-Templates.  So easy to add the blended circle colors.

Used a stitched circle die to cut down the circle to fit on the background.
Added the Clear Sticker: "Joy to the World" and popped up the circle image with craft foam and attached to alcohol ink background,  which I had attached to the 100# cardbase and Done!

Wishing you all a safe and Merry Holiday Season.
