I absolutely adore the new holiday stamps and chippies that were just released! I love the look of chunky words as the centerpiece on a card. I am combining one of the new Statements Chippies as the focal point with an Archival Ink lift-off technique for a fun background on this cute holiday card. I accented it with images from the Doodle Holiday and Doodle Christmas stamp sets.
Step 1: Ink blend Morning Glory Archival Ink on a panel of Perfect Cardstock using the Ink Blending Tool. Ink blend Potting Soil Archival ink around the edges of the panel.
Step 2: Using the Make Art Stay-tion, position the Simon Hurley “The Loo” stencil over the ink-blended panel and hold it in place with the magnets. Then, use the Domed Ink Blending Tool and 91% alcohol to gently dab over the stencil to lift away some of the ink. Try not to overload the foam dome with alcohol.
Step 3: Paint Tarnished Brass Distress Spray Stain on the Noel Chippie with a Ranger Artist Brush. I used three to four coats.
Step 4: Spritz the extra stain on the mat with water, mix it up well and flick it on the card panel using a paintbrush.
Step 5: Stamp the greenery spray from the Doodle Christmas stamp set with Leaf Green Archival Ink on Perfect Cardstock.
Step 6: Ink blend a small spot of Morning Glory Archival Ink on Perfect Cardstock and stamp the bird image from Doodle Holiday over the ink spot using Black Soot Distress Ink.
Step 7: Blend Prickly Pear Archival Ink over the greenery spray to add a little more color, then cut the images out. Add three dots of Red Geranium Liquid Pearls and let it dry.
Step 8: Assemble the card by gluing the Noel Chippie to the panel using Perfect Card Adhesive. Add a small amount of foam tape to the bird and the greenery spray, then adhere it to the card. Adhere the whole panel to a white card base.
