It’s STAMPtember! | Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Exclusive – Happy Holidays

Hello, friends and welcome back for another “It’s STAMPtember!” post! This time I am sharing a Christmas card created using Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous exclusive collaboration stamp set.

I’ll admit – it was a challenge to take Tim’s traditional images and translate them into my favorite Clean & Simple style, but after a few hours of play time in my craft corner I was finally happy with my project. I’d love to hear what you think?

CARD DETAILS

I started working on this project by heat embossing a wood slice in Simon’s Antique Gold embossing powder onto Arches Hot Pressed watercolor paper. Next, I colored it using my Daniel Smith watercolors – Transparent Brown color and cut out with scissors.

I also heat embossed a border and a postage stamp in same Antique Gold embossing powder and colored both using Alizarin Crimson watercolor. I cut out the stamp and tore one of the edges off. The border was cut into smaller pieces which I later adhered onto my card as little accents.

I stamped and cut out two stags using Simon’s Dark Chocolate and Smoke inks. Once all of my pieces were ready I foam mounted them onto an A2 side folding card base. I covered the front of my card with white Woodgrain cardstock as I love to use something other than smooth paper for simple cards like this one.

I heat embossed “Happy Holidays” sentiment in white embossing powder onto brown cardstock and foam mounted it onto my card. Lastly, I added several Nuvo Drops in Dark Walnut.

    1. What a gorgeous card! I love how you cut and divided up the border stamp for little accents on the card. I love the embossing on the wood slice and other accent pieces. that ties everything together well. The deer are wonderful looking stamps. Thanks for sharing!

    1. I really like this lovely gender-neutral card. The embossed accents and rich reds/browns are perfect. You certainly achieved your style of clean and simple.

    1. I love it Yana, it is beautiful.
      So happy to know it is not just me that takes hours sometimes to come up with an idea. I always see your cards (and the other bloggers) and feel as though you just “rip them off” so easily when sometimes it takes me forever…LOL

    1. A really lovely card. It is simple, yet elegant. I appreciate all the work you put into this card. It inspires me to keep trying to make beautiful cards like yours. TFS.\

    1. I love how your card turned out! The heat embossing is beautiful and that cluster over the woodgrain paper looks wonderful. Thanks for sharing!!

    1. I always look forward to your cards, Yana. This one is delightful. I keep looking at it and discovering something else you used! I love all the layering you achieved and yet kept it very clean.

    1. What I especially like about this card is that’s it is so unexpected and sort of non-traditional! Very creative idea. Those diamond shaped accents are beautiful! Thanks, Yana.

    1. I really love the diamond accents from the border stamp. Your card is very beautiful! I would never guess that this was a challenge for you, you really mastered the use of these stamps to fit your aesthetic. Thank you so much for sharing!
