VIDEO: Die Cut Masking with Holiday Cheer

Gasp! I've got a new video up! I know it's been forever, but I do have a few new videos lined up and hope to get on a regular schedule for you guys.

Today's video features a fun background technique that works with several mediums including watercolor, Copic markers, Distress Inks and Spray Mists.

And in the following video I'm featuring our Spray Mists. The holidays call for all things glittered and shimmered, so I thought what better time to bust out our Clear Shimmer Spray Mist?

Watch above or watch in HD at YouTube

Seriously not sure which I love more - that Shimmer Spray or this technique!

I hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!

Holiday Cheer

Hello! I'm back today with more to share with you from our Holiday 2015 Release, and a new-to-me product that I have fallen head over heals for: Viva Decor Holo Iridescent 3D Paste.

How fun is that background featuring the Viva Decor Paste and the Falling Snow stencil by Simon Says Stamp? I thought it was the perfect backdrop for the fun hat and mittens from Holiday Cheer. I stamped and heat embossed them in white and then added some color by sponging on Picked Raspberry and Spiced Marmalade Distress Inks, and then die cut them using the Holiday Cheer Companion Die.

To create the string for my mittens, I used a paper piercer to poke a hole in each and then threaded a piece of hemp twine that I colored with a Copic Marker through them. Thanks Kathy! The sentiment from the same set was added onto a panel die cut using the Gift Card Layers Die.

But you don't have to get that intricate to create some great designs with this stamp set. With a few fun colors and good ol' stamping, you can whip up a batch of cards in no time.

I just stamped the solid images in the set and then over-stamped them in black with the corresponding line images. To add a little special touch, I just added a bit of sparkle with a Clear Wink Of Stella Pen.

This really is a perfect set for those mass produced holiday cards!
