Holiday Stamps for any Occasion

by Kelly Rasmussen September 21, 2018 5 Comments

The Season of Wonder Catalog is filled with so many great stamps that are perfect for your holiday cards. But if you look closely, you will find quite a few stamps that can be used year round for any occasion, like the Sugar and Spice Bold Prints that I use on my card today.

The first thing I did was ink up the background stamp using Pale Tomato, Orange Soda and Soft Cantaloupe inks and stamped it onto a white cardstock panel.

To create the curved accent on the bottom of the panel, I created a mask by tracing a bowl onto masking paper and trimming it out. I used the same curve of the bowl to trace and trim out the bottom edge of the stamped panel. I placed the mask about an inch from the bottom, inked up that area with VersaMark ink, sprinkled on Brass Embossing Powder and heat embossed the area. 

Next, I stamped my sentiment from the Art Deco Thank You Kit on vellum using Staz-On Jet Black Ink. My plan was to just adhere the message to my stamped panel, but I felt like it just didn't stand out enough and needed an element behind. So, looking through my dies, I found the Paper Layering Feather, and it ended up being the perfect solution! I die cut it from blue felt, adhered it to my stamped panel and then attached my sentiment.

The last step in most of the cards I make is to adhere my panel to a card base. Once it's all done I like to then decide whether it looks best on a white or colored card base. In this case, I found the perfect blue card to match my felt feather with a Cerulean Folded Card. It's like it was meant to be! Then to finish it off I added a few sequins from the Frost and Champagne assortments. 

Thanks for joining me today and don't forget think outside the box with your holiday stamps and use them all year round!
