Spellbinders December Holiday 2017 Blog Hop + Giveaway

by May Park-

Welcome to the Spellbinders December 2017 Blog Hop. If you came from the amazing Sharyn Sowell’s blog, you are right on track!

These are some of my favorite products from Spellbinders’ holiday products. If you haven’t done so, make sure to check them out at the Spellbinders online store – they are also available in the Simon Says Stamp store.

I created a festive Christmas card using the Merry & Bright Stamp and Die Set from Spellbinders. I started by coloring my background on a piece of Arches cold pressed watercolor paper with Mijello Mission Gold Watercolor Set.

After I dried my watercolored background using a heat tool, I added some ink splatters using Hero Arts Unicorn White Spray. I also enhanced the color density of while dots using Uni-Ball White Gel Pen.

I stamped the image and sentiment from the Merry & Bright Stamp and Die Set on a piece of white cardstock with Versamark Watermark Ink and heat embossed them with Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder. By the way, I didn’t stamp “& bright” from the image by masking it off using a washi tape to create my own sentiment.

After coloring my image with Copic Sketch Markers, I applied Glossy Accents on the light bulbs to add some interest.

Next, I die cut my image and sentiment using the coordinating dies from the Merry & Bright Stamp and Die Set and mounted die cuts on my watercolor panel using 3M foam tape to give some dimension.

After I adhered my watercolor panel on to an A2 size top folding white card base, I finished off my card with some Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins.

    I love the bright red background. Why do you use cold press vs not press? Just trying to figure out the difference. I a!so like how you masked the sentiment and glossed up the light bulbs after coloring them to make them shine! Thank you!
