Holiday Ornaments Stamp & Cut



a2z oct 30 wm 1.jpg

Hi there it’s Angie here today with some inspiration for our October “Watercolor” challenge!  I watercolored some watercolor paper with Distress Inks and Kuretake watercolors then die cut the ornaments from Hero Arts Holiday Ornaments Stamp and Cut set.  The sentiment is from the same set.    I used a large plaid background stamp (very old Hero Arts rubber stamp) on top of the watercolored paper for some pattern.  The large wood background stamp is from Joy Clair stamps in light beige ink.   I used two strips of the watercolored paper on the sides then cut the top panel and another black panel with MFT edge die and layered them.   Lastly I added some glitter Nuvo drops to the ornaments for extra shine and two die cut bows from the same Hero Arts Stamp and Cut set.

I can’t wait to see what you enter in this months challenge!  Be sure to read about the changes to our challenge – you can use any products and we have several ways to win.  Check out the details HERE!

I made another card with the left over ornaments.  The white top fold is slimmer than the rest of the card so I could add some watercolored strips to the inside of the card and still see them when the card is closed.  The little red bows are actually red raffia from my stash adhered with glue dots.  I forgot to draw in the strings at the top with a fine tip marker before I took these pictures – oops!  So I added them later!

  2. I LOVE the look you got with the watercolor, Angie!!!! Really cool texture. Great use of the watercolored strips, too. And I never thought to use raffia on my cards. You opened up a world of possibilities. Thank you for the inspiration! 🙂 ~ Andrea
