Perfect Pearls Retro Ornaments - Technique Junkies

  Hello! Tracy Shultz, The Hopeful Crafter here with a post for you. Last week a  brand new Technique Junkies release dropped and these fresh new stamps are perfect for creating holiday cards!  Today, I have four cards using Perfect Pearls and Embossing powders to create some classical holiday looks.

The new release stamps are on sale for 15% off through Oct. 8.

List of Technique Junkies products I used: 
Retro Ornaments Background (S932): Gifts of Christmas Set of 5 (SS081): Light of Faith Set of 4 (SS142):

I created a how to video for these cards:

To create my gold Perfect Pearls background I followed these steps: 
1. I stamped the Retro Ornaments stamp onto black cardstock using Versamark Ink 
2. I used Perfect Pearls from the Ranger Metallic Perfect Pearls kit to dust over the stamped Versamark panel.
3. I sprayed a light layer of water on the Perfect Pearls panel. This seals the Perfect Pearls. 
4. I heat embossed the sentiment from the Light of Faith Stamp Set of 4 on gold card stock and  used a stitched rectangle die to cut out both the sentiment and the Perfect Pearls Card Panel.
5. I used foam tape to pop up the sentiment panel and adhered everything to an A2 card panel. 

Here are some photos of the other cards that I made. All of these are explained in my video:

I used the Bird and Poinsettia Boarder Stamp to create this holiday card. 
The sentiment is from the Light of Faith Stamp Set. 

I created a how to video for this card:

I created this card by stamping with markers. I used inexpensive Dual Art Markers from Amazon. I used the packaging photo as my guide and colored each section of this beautiful stamp. The sentiment I stamped and heat embossed using VersaFine Claire Ink in the color Acorn. I used my postage stamp die to die cut the panel and adhered it to a maroon A2 card base.
