Stamping Bella | Guest Designer Spot 3

Hello everyone! I’m back with a new guest designer spot for Stamping Bella. Christmas is almost here! I can’t wait! I love the holiday season and Christmas is so magical!

Today, I have a playful Christmas card to share with you, featuring non-traditional colors and SUPER SWEET elves:  

I went for pink! I thought it would work well with these cute little elves from the Little Bits Set of Elves rubber stamps and I really like the result. I started by creating the soft pink background. I used various pink Distress and Oxide inks. I pressed the ink pads face down onto a craft sheet, spritzed water and pressed my piece of paper onto the craft sheet. I dried the paper using a heat gut and repeated the steps until I was happy. Once it was dry, I die cut the watercolored paper with a stitched die for more interest and a great finish. I adhered the panel to a white top-folded card base using foam pads. Next, I colored the super sweet elves using pink shades. The Christmas candy is from the same set as the elves and I colored it in rainbow colors. The "EAT, DRINK & BE MERRY" sentiment was computer generated. I cut around to create a small banner. I then cut the elves and I die cut the 25 from glitter paper. I fixed all elements with foam pads to the panel for more dimension. I added a lot of enamel dots as a finishing touch. The colorful dots as well as the rainbow Christmas candy make the card so playful and happy!

I hope you’ve got inspired by this project! Don’t forget to head over to the Stamping Bella blog for more inspiration every day!
