Get Cracking on Christmas with Colorado Craft Company


Hi friends!  It's that time again!  It's time to get cracking on Christmas!  This month, we are featuring some beautiful stamp sets from Colorado Craft Company.  I've got a lot of fun holiday projects for you today!  

To start, I've got an ombre inked card featuring the lovely legs -Santa & Rudolph stamp set.  After using a powder tool on an A2 piece of white cardstock, I stamped the image using versamark ink on the center of the cardstock.  Then, I used white embossing powder to heat emboss the image.  Next, I masked the top and bottom of the panel using post-it tape.  Catherine pooler inks (left to right): sangria, flirty fuchsia and pixie dust used to ink blend an ombre background.  White colored pencil and purple ink pen used to create extra dimension to the images.  I finished the card using studio Katia arctic breeze pearls and a border from Lawn Fawn.  The sentiment is from the same stamp set and it was white heat embossed on black cardstock and adhered using foam tape.

For my next project, I create a pair of ombre inked holiday tags using the same lovely legs - Santa & Rudolph stamp set.  The technique is the same expect this time I swapped the color grape crush for sangria.  The tags were cut using the jumbo nested dies and I added festive ribbon from my local craft store.

For my last project, I used the big and bold holiday ornament stamp set.  This set has a large ornament image with beautiful details and I really wanted the image to pop.  After using a powder tool, I stamped the ornament image using versamark ink and white heat embossed the image.  Next, I ink blended the image using various colors of Catherine Pooler inks to create a colorful blend.  Then, the image was cut using scissors and I mounted it on a piece of white woodgrain cardstock.  The sentiment from lovely legs -  Rudolph & Santa was stamped on white cardstock using black ink and adhered to the center of the card.  I added a few clear droplets from pretty pink posh for dimension.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Be sure to check out Jenn's blog for more inspiration!
