Hello and welcome to Kylie’s Demonstrator Training Blog Hop for October! I’m part of a group of talented Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from around the world that participate in Kylie Bertucci’s program for building our businesses.
Today’s card features the Toile Christmas stamp set. The Toile Tidings Suite was my top pick when I placed my holiday catalog pre-order. I thought the Bird Ballad Laser-Cut Card would make a beautiful background and it didn’t dissapoint! I originally planned on using one of the Toile Tidings Designer Series Papers to place under the lace cut-out, however after auditioning all of them I decided to go with a plain piece of Very Vanilla cardstock, which makes the bird stand out more.
Here’s how I made the card.
- Cut a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock to fit under the front of a Bird Ballad Laser-Cut card, apply liquid glue lightly around the edge and adhere.
- Stamp image of cardinal and tree branch with Memento Black Ink on piece of Very Vanilla cardstock. Color the cardinal with the light and dark Real Red Stampin’ Blends markers. Color the beak with the dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends marker. Color the tree branch with the dark Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends marker. Color leaves with the dark Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends marker and the berries with the dark Real Red Stampin’ Blends marker.
- Die cut images with the coordinating Christmas Cardinal dies. Adhere to front of card with liquid glue.
Stamp the Christmas Wishes greeting with Real Red ink on piece of Very Vanilla cardstock and cut with coordinating die. Adhere to card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Add a Red Rhinestone jewel to the banner.
For the inside of the card stamp the greeting with Real Red ink and a flourish in Shaded Spruce ink.
