Happy Holidays & Stampin’ Blends!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I want to share with you a card that I created using a really fun stamp set and the just released Stampin’ Blends!! Pairing these two together was double the fun!!

I began by stamping the cute little elf onto Whisper White … I’ve been waiting to use this one!! Then I colored my elf with the Old Olive, Daffodil Delight and Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends pairs.

I used the technique of laying the light colored alcohol ink (Stampin’ Blends) and then the darker color. I then go back and use the lighter color to blend the two colors seamlessly … oh it’s fun. Don’t you love the way his hair is highlighted … wooo hooo!

I chose the “Christmas Around the World” Designer Series paper because it has that old fashioned “retro” look just like our little elf!! Then just a block of cardstock on two corners to draw your eye to the focal point.

The elf itself was double stamped … then the greeting was cut out and popped up to give more dimension. He is just toooo stinkin’ cute! A simple layout but oh so effective to send a Happy Holidays!

Thanks so much for stopping in to check out today’s project, I hope you enjoyed it.

Have a great day … we are one day closer to the weekend!!

    • Hello Dianne ~

      The “cornered blocking” is super simple … it is just a 1-1/2″ x 1-3/4″ piece of Real Red cardstock adhered to the back of the elf image. Instead of added just another layer of cardstock, I added the smaller pieces to draw your eyes to the focal point – which is our elf.

      Thank you so much for asking. I appreciate the feedback 🙂
