Believe and Embellished Merry Christmas from Technique Junkies

 Hi! Tracy Shultz, The Hopeful Crafter, here with two Holiday Cards featuring two new stamps from Technique Junkies. Check out all the new release stamps here: https://techniquejunkies.com/october-2022-stamp-release/  Save 10% off your order with my code: TJ10Tracy

For my first card, I heat embossed the new Believe Stamp (SD1195) with silver embossing powder. I die cut it with a stitched rectangle die. I ink blended the edges of the rectangle with Tranquil (light blue) ink from Catherine Pooler. For my night sky I used a piece of navy blue card stock and splattered it with Frost White Fantastix Ink by Tsukineko. I die cut this with a stitched rectangle die. I used a large silver foil circle to represent the moon in the upper right hand corner.  I used silver foil cardstock cut with a stitched rectangle die for a mat layer. I adhered everything to an A2 card base. 
For my second card, I embossed the Embellished Merry Christmas stamp (SD1198) with dark green embossing powder, then die cut that with a stitched rectangle die. I then used the Quirky Little Trees Stencil  from A Colorful Life Designs with Later Gator (green) Lunar Paste on white cardstock. I used green foil cardstock as a mat layer and adhered to an A2 card base. I then added some foiled ephemera stickers from my stash (a Christmas Tree, a red pickup truck and holly leaves).

Merry Flourish & All Hearts Come Home by Becca Feeken for Spellbinders

Hello. I have three cards today featuring dies from Becca Feeken's Spellbinders Christmas Flourish Collection. My first two cards were created with Merry Flourish:  https://shrsl.com/3qsjj  I used red, gold and green foil cardstock to die cut the flourish, Christmas bulbs and sentiment. I also used the Scattered Christmas embossing folder with red cardstock for the gold flourish and green pearlescent cardstock for the red flourish. 


My second card features the All Hearts Come Home: https://shrsl.com/3qsjk die set cut with ivory pearlescent cardstock. I used light purple and a light blue pearlescent cardstock to cut the sentiments.

I hope you enjoyed these cards created with dies from the Becca Feekan Christmas Flourish Collection from Spellbinders. Shop all Spellbinders here:
