Hi everyone! It’s been a couple of days since I posted… things have been a bit crazy here. Another gorgeous day here on the East Coast. Truly, I wish this would last a while. We’ll wait for Mother Nature to decide though :O) Today’s card…

Tag Buffet w/ Itty Bitty C’mas
#1

And here’s how…

  • With an acrylic block, stamp the block on an ink pad, stamp off then stamp on the Whisper White card stock This leaves a fun background on which to stamp.I first used Mango Melody, then Pacific Point then Just Jade inks. It doesn’t make a sold imprint but one that easily will show another stamp over it.
  • With Tuxedo Memento Black ink, stamp the image directly on the center of the ‘inked spot’. This adorable ornament comes from Tag Buffet stamp set.
  • I did some minor coloring on each ornament using Mango Melody Blends, Pretty Peacock Blends and Just Jade Blends.
  • Stamp the word ‘believe’ in the open area of the center ornament. This comes from Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set and I used Tuxedo Black Memento ink.
  • Using a Take Your Pick Tool, poke a hole in the ornament top and slip a bit of string or  ribbon through to the back and tape. Here I used the Misty Moonlight/ silver Bakers Twine from the Flowers for Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack. Add a bow with a glue dot on the center ornament.
  • Adhere this completed Whisper White panel to a piece of Pacific Point card stock.
  • Adhere a panel of Bright 6×6 DSP to the Thick Whisper White card base with liquid glue.
  • Now attach the decorated  panel to the card front with dimensionals.
  • The sentiment banner was stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink on a Thick Whisper White 1/2″ strip. 
  • I trimmed the ends with the Banners Pick a Punch. Adhere with dimensionals to the card front.
  • For a final touch I added these fun and elegant Blue Adhesive-Backed Gems.

The inside was super easy…

  • Stamp the sentiment from Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento ink.
  • Adhere to card inside with liquid glue.

The envelope…

  • With another piece of the Brights 6×6 DSP in Pacific Point, adhere with liquid glue to the envelope flap and trim to fit.
  • Stamp the ornament o0n the front of the envelope with Tuxedo Black Memento ink using the Tag Buffet stamp set.
  • Again I colored with Just Jade Blends and Bronze Blend for the top. Remember to slip a piece of scrap card stock in. the envelope before coloring or the blends will bleed through.
  • Products to purchase to make this card may be found below. Card cuts may be found at the bottom of this post.
  • Fun card to create folks and so easy using an acrylic block to create the background.
