Hello and Welcome!!!
Watch video tutorial here!!!
I’m really thrilled to be showing you a brand new stamp set from Art Impressions in conjunction with Simon Says Stamp! This EXCLUSIVE LIMITED EDITION stamp set is called “Fab-yule-ous Friends” and includes three of the most adorable ladies all decked out for the holidays and loads of great coordinating sentiments! This set will only be available for a limited time…so if you love it don’t hesitate…get yours today!
As soon as I saw the sentiment that says “Dear Santa, I can explain”, I knew I just had to create a fun postcard to Santa…so she can send a little note to Santa…to explain of course!
We will be stamping and coloring on some Tim Holtz Kraft Heavystock. To begin, let’s stamp the postcard sentiment at the top and then we can draw in some lines to complete the postcard look. Let’s also stamp some musical notes from that same stamp set. Now we can stamp the sentiment in a pretty Red Geranium color.
Next, let’s stamp our focal image and for the coloring we will be using the brand new Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor Pencils. These pencils are so simple and easy to use…and when we color on the kraft cardstock we will get a more muted look which will work perfectly for our vintage postcard. I’ll give you a few tips and tricks for using these pencils in a unique and different way!
Now we can mount the postcard onto some red and white striped paper from the Tim Holtz – Worn Wallpaper Scraps and we will also be using some ephemera from the Tim Holtz – Christmas Ephemera pack.
Finally, we can add some Distress Oxide Ink in Walnut Stain around the edges for a more vintage look. And for a bit of sparkle, we can add some Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Pen to some of the images!
