Square Card featuring the Little Holly stamp and Karin Markers

 Hello, Tracy Shultz, the Hopeful Crafter, here today to share two cards. For my cards, I used the Little Holly stamp, as well as the Warmest Wishes Stamp and the Gifts of Christmas Stamp Set.

My first card was created using the Warmest Wishes sentiment stamps.

My second card was created using the Gifts of Christmas Sentiment Stamp. 

To create both of my cards I stamped the Little Holly image around a circle mask (top, bottom, left and right) using Catherine Pooler Midnight Ink.  I then colored the holly leaves and berries with Karin Markers. I removed the mask/circle and stamped the sentiment inside the open space. For the Warmest Wishes sentiment I stamped first, then cut out each word individual and placed them inside the circle.  I trimmed the four corners with a corner rounding punch. I had some holly and berries holiday paper in my stash. I rounded the corners and used this paper as a mat layer. For my card base I used a maroon 5.5" x 5.5" card base.

To create my cards I used the new Forest Buffalo Stamp and Catherine Pooler Inks to ink blend my backgrounds. The Catherine Pooler inks blend like a dream! They are now available for sale at Technique Junkies!

I used a stitched rectangle die to cut out the ink blended panels. I then created embossed sentiments using the Dream, Hope, Wish and Wonder, set of four stamps (SDX018). To finish my cards I mounted them to black A2 landscape card bases. 

These cards were quick and easy to create thanks to the beautiful buffalo silhouette and the vibrant Catherine Pooler Inks. They can be used for any occasion!

I created a  how to video on my YouTube channel that explains how I made my cards:

For card #2, I used this stamp: techniquejunkies.com/courage-1/

How I created my cards:
1. I used a circle die and cut a circle the size of my stamp into a piece of masking paper
2. I applied the masking paper to an A2 card panel
3. I used Antique Linen Distress Oxide Ink to ink blend inside the circle for card #1.  I used Tiara to ink blend inside the circle of card #2, 
4. I used Vintage Photo Distress Oxide to ink blank the outer rim of the circle for card #1.  I used Tiki Torch to ink blend the outer rim of the circle for card #2. 
5. I removed the masking paper and stamped the images inside the circles using VersaFine Clair Nocturne Ink (black).
6. I used Vintage Photo distress oxide ink to outline the edges of card panel #1. I used Tiki Torch for Card # 2. 
7. I adhered the panel onto a white A2 card base.
