Hi friends! Happy Sunday! Please join me in welcoming back special guest Cheiron Brandon to our blog today! She’s made a GORGEOUS Christmas card to inspire during holiday card making season with such trendy colors and I LOVE it!! Read on and enjoy!!
Hi there crafty friends! It’s Cheiron Brandon and I am thrilled to be sharing a fun vintage style – PINK Christmas card with you today. I used the Tim Holtz Candleshop dies along with some glittery greenery to create a vintage candle arrangement. To begin, I cut all the candles out using the dies and lining up all the layering pieces for each of the three candles. To make it easier to ink, I adhered all of the pieces and hen I put them onto a sticky mat and ink blended them with Spun Sugar, then shaded with Kitsch Flamingo inks. I also added the flame pieces and inked them with Fossilized Amber and Crackling Campfire inks. The wicks were cut from black cardstock.
To create my background, I used Pumice Stone Distress Ink and Frozen Fog Distress Mica Stain on Distress Watercolor Cardstock. Once the panel was dry, I stamped some images from the Ledger Script and Eccentric stamp sets using Hickory Smoke onto my background to add more interest. Then I cut greens from the Festive Gatherings dies out of Metallic Cardstock and Christmas Deco sheets and arranged all the pieces on my card. I added white and black splatter using a brush and Picket Fence and Black Soot Distress Inks. I dried the panel with and added metallic splatter to the card by spattering Unravelled Distress Mica Stain. To finish my panel, I inked the edges and then added a few stickers from the Christmas Sticker book.
I hope you enjoyed this card in a fun pink palette and got some ideas for easy inking of your Tim Holtz Colorize dies!
Thanks so much for stopping by, and a big thanks to Cheiron for being our guest!
