Hi There & Happy Sunday! I've got two little cards to share with you today, that I created using our newest Christmas themed stamp set-Toy Emporium.
I wanted to make a couple of cards that looked really vintagey and reached for kraft card stock and realized I didn't have any more! YIKES! Never fear--#8 kraft tags did the trick just fine!
I folded the kraft tags in half then did some Distress Paint stenciling to the both of them. I used the Stars & Christmas layering stencils with Brushed Pewter & Picket Fence DPs respectively.
I spritzed my craft sheet with Broken China DSS and water and ran the stenciled tags through the stain.
When I was happy with the coverage of stain, I blotted lightly with a paper towel and heat set.
I ran the tags through my sewing machine to add a stitched border, now they're ready for stamping goodness!
I made each card the same, but only took pictures of this card in assembly--I applied a piece of tissue tape to the card, stamped the little girl directly onto the surface of the card then separately stamped onto a piece of coffee stained vellum with Jet Black archival. I fussy cut the girl stamped on vellum and adhered her onto the card with matte Decou-Page.
I added a shadow of Hickory Smoke DI with my water brush then outlined the images with my white gel pen. I glittered up a few wooden stars with Clear Rock Candy Distress Glitter and adhered to the surface of the cards with matte Decou-Page.
I altered a piece of tinsel twine with alcohol ink and applied heat to make the tinsel curl up a bit, then I cut it into two pieces and tied to each tag--Gosh, I love the additional layer of nostalgia that the tinsel twine added to these little cards! FUN!
Thanks so much for joining me on this Sunday! I sure do appreciate you stopping by and hope you'll come back again to see me next week! I'll have a little Christmas project that can be crafted in plenty of time to get stockings stuffed!
