CARD DETAILS

I started working on my card by stamping a sentiment from the Be Merry set from WPlus9 in Silver Lining ink onto Coal Mine cardstock. I used a stamp positioner and kept my stamp on the door of my stamping platform to be able to stamp it again in the same spot on my panel.

Next, I colored banner and the inside of the letters in the word Merry using Polychromos pencils. Later I colored and heat embossed identical banner on white cardstock and foam mounted it onto my card as I wanted the red to be a bit more vibrant on this card.

I also stamped pine branches from the Holiday Boughs set from WPlus9 in same gray ink framing my sentiment. Using several green Polychromos pencils I colored each branch creating a hand-drawn look (or no-line colored look).

Once my coloring was done I replaced the panel inside my stamp platform and stamped the sentiment again in clear embossing ink. I also stamped berry and pine branches and heat embossed everything in white embossing powder.

After adhering my panel onto an A2 top folding card base made out of white cardstock I added red berries using Nuvo Drops in Red Berry color and foam mounted an identical but brighter banner on top.

I definitely enjoyed creating the subtle greenery look you see on this card, although same effect can be achieved using pigment ink. I don’t always like to use pigment ink as it takes a long time to dry, so I used colored pencils instead. Let me know what you think! And as always, have fun stamping!

    1. Lovely card Yana, I think I might be able to pull something like this off, I’m a newbie and quite afraid of trying new things which is silly, it’s only a piece of paper right! I was like that with my scrapbook paper as well! Soon got over that!

    1. Some great tips in the video. Thanks! I’ve been thinking the past couple of days about how to use the poly chromes with a stamp I have that has small areas to color (and a banner). When I tried to use the stamp before — heat embossing first — it made the coloring impossible. So I’ve been thinking about how to do a sort of no line coloring and then heat emboss. And then … bam! You posted this video!!! (Now I can use my mind to think about something else!!!!!!) I also like the idea of paper piecing the banner which not only gives the card some dimension but also — as you show — the coloring of the banner is much brighter. As always — thank you, Yana.

    1. I have never seen it done like this before. Such a beautiful card and I love the way you did it. I can’t wait to try it myself. Thank you for sharing.

    1. This is so beautiful Yana and I love the added white embossing powder and the red berries, it definitely ‘amped it up’ and made it pop. Beautiful job as always!

    1. Yana, this card is simply stunning! And, I think I need to pick up some of those colored pencils after seeing the beautiful projects that you’ve made with them.
