- Use your home die-cut machine to cut out the Deer Frame from Brown Stardream card stock
- Mount the image onto patterned paper (Wendy used the paper that had a Holly pattern on it)
- Use a couple pop-dots behind the deer's head to add dimension. To adhere the rest of the Deer Frame, use Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive
- Layer the image with a bit of red card stock and mount it all on to your card base (ivory card stock)
- Use a bit of decorative ribbon and tie a little ribbon around the neck of the Deer. Wendy used a nice green and red gingham ribbon
- Lastly, use Nuvo Crystal Drops, Red Berry, to add a nose onto the deer!! Now your Deer is Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer!!
This die-cut is such a stunning image.. could be used for a variety of different cards!
- Start out by stamping the Poinsettia. This is a color-layering stamp set, meaning you will stamp the images in a "layering" fashion to achieve a desired effect. Stamp the poinsettias onto Solar White card stock
- Stamp the BOLD images first in light colored ink and the detail images last in darker colored ink
- Use the color Pallet Listed Below
- Poinsettia: Distress Oxide Worn Lipstick, Versafine Clair Galmorous, Versafine Clair Chianti
- Leaves: Distress Oxide Peeled Paint, Versafine Clair Rain Forest
- Once you have stamped-out the Poinsettias, fussy cut along one edge to make them stand out a little more
- Use double-sided tape to adhere the stamped poinsettia images to the right side of your card base (red card stock)
- On the left side of your card, adhere a piece of decorative holiday paper. Wendy chose this paper that has poinsettias in it to replicate the movement and theme of the Poinsettia Stamp we used.
- Add a bit of red ribbon down the middle of the card, giving separation between the decorative paper and the stamped poinsettia images
- On a brown tag shape, stamp out a nice sentiment, Wendy stamped "Merry Christmas" with Versafine Clair Rain Forest ink
- Tie a bit of green twine through the tag and tie it around the red ribbon on the card
- Use a pop-dot to adhere the tag to the front of the card
Below you can see the idea and effect of using a Turnabout Stamp:
- Wendy used the Tim Holtz Stamp Platform and placed the Turnabout Snowflake Stamp onto the platform
- Wendy created a template for this stamp. The template below shows where you lay your square piece of card stock (4" x 4" white card stock)
- Create a template by lining out a 6" x 6" area that the stamp takes up
- Measure out a nice 4 1/2" x 4 1/2" square in the middle of the 6" x 6" template
- In the middle of the 4 1/2 x 4 1/2" template, that is where you will lay your card stock to stamp
- Ink up the Snowflake Turnabout Stamp and stamp it on your paper using Versafine Clair Warm Breeze ink
- Lift up the stamp platform and ink up your stamp again with Versafine Clair Twilight ink, and rotate your paper 90 degrees MAKING SURE to keep it in the middle of your template
- Continue to stamp and rotate until you have coated the entire piece of card stock in snowflakes
- Then, take the paper you just stamped and mount it onto the front of a blue card base, leaving space at the bottom of the card
- Stamp out a sentiment (Wendy chose "Snowflake kisses and Holiday wishes" from the Concord & 9th clear Turnabout Stamp set. She stamped the sentiment in Versafine Clair Twilight ink onto white card stock and mounted it onto blue card stock for color contrast
- Mount the sentiment onto the snowflake background image at a slight angle and adhere with pop-dots
- Take a piece of white card stock that measures 8 1/2" x 3" and cut a wavy edge along one of the long sides. Then cut the paper in half. You just created 2 snow drifts
- Place the snow drifts along the bottom of the card, using pop-dots to add dimension to the snow drift on the very bottom of the card
- To finish off the card, Wendy used Star Dust and Crystal Stickles along the edge of each snow drift
- Lastly, Wendy used patterned paper with bears on it and fussy-cut a few polar bears. She used pop-dots to adhere them to the snow drifts and made it look like they were playing in the snow!!
