Tinsel Time Collection - Day 3 of 4 - Holiday Group Hugs.

 Welcome back!  Today I am featuring an adorable stamp set from Spellbinders new Tinsel Time Collection called Holiday Group Hug.  It is a cute and fun stamp set that you will truly love working with.  I decided to color mine, making it even more fun for me.  I have listed all the products used below at the end of this post.  


As usual, I started with an A2 card base.  To this, I added a mat of red cardstock.  Atop that I found some pretty  background paper that  featured pine boughs and berries.  I thought it was a perfect match for my card.  

I then stamped my image onto copic friendly paper using Memento, Tuxedo Black ink.  I proceeded to color the image using my copic markers.  Once I was satisfied with the colors, I fussy cut them out and adhered them to the front of the card.  As a little special something, I added glossy accents to Mrs. Claus's glasses to make them look more realistic. 

I chose the sentiment from the same stamp set.  I combined two different stamps for it.  I thought the second line was appropriate considering there was a group of people/animals shown.  It was stamped using Versafine Clair Nocturne ink onto white cardstock and matted onto red cardstock.  I then popped it up using foam squares and my card was finished!

It was super easy and since I love to color, it was super fun as well.  I hope you will take a moment and check out all the wonderful products in this collection!  I am sure you won't be disappointed.  I also have one more card from this collection to share with you tomorrow.  And stay tuned as there are many more collections to show you in the coming days!  Please stop by and check them out!

Tinsel Time Collection - Day 2 of 4 - Dancing St. Nick Die Set

 This is day two of releases for Spellbinders.  This is just one of the collections, I will be featuring in the days to come, so be sure to stop by this blog and check out everything new Spellbinders has to offer.  These products are so cute that I am sure you will have trouble deciding which ones to get!

This new Dancing St. Nick die set is so incredibly cute!  It is named that because his legs swing back and forth if you place a small foam square in the whole in his legs. Then just simply pop up the rest of his body, and his legs will swing freely.    If you prefer for him to not dance, you can simply glue the body over the legs and they will be stationary.  I will have a list of all the products used below at the end of this post.  




For this first card, I started with an A2 card base and added a mat of dark green cardstock.  I then placed a strip of tree patterned green paper matted with black onto the green mat.  I also added the Christmas tree on the left of the card using a different patterned paper and yellow star both cut from the Charming Cottage Box Die set.  I then cut and assembled the Santa.  I added a small present and a scroll which I inked using Vintage photo distress ink and an ink dauber to give it an aged look.   I also added some faux writing to the scroll using a fine tip black marker.  

The sentiment was hot foiled using the Glitter Wishes Glimmer Plate and Veridian Green Foil.  It was then cut out and popped up using foam squares.  For an added touch, I placed a fashion gold embellishment in the center of the star on the top of the tree.  I added a highlight to his eyes and nose using a white gel pen. 




For this second example. I also used an A2 card base.  To it I added a mat of red cardstock and placed some printed paper atop that leaving a border of red around the outside.  The paper read Ho Ho Ho, which I thought was very appropriate for a Santa!.  To this I added a tag from green printed paper using the Create A Decorative Tag die.  I then cut out and assembled my Santa the same as I did above, but decided to have him waving instead of holding items.  His legs still swing free making him an adorable piece on this card!  For the sentiment I hot foiled it using Gold foil and the Holiday Sentiments 2 glimmer plates.  I then used the included die from that set and cut it out and popped it up across the bottom of the tag using foam squares.  

The tag was finished by added a short piece of thin red ribbon for the hanger.  

I hope you liked these examples!  I can't say enough how cute this Santa is.  Please check out him and the other "dancing" dies from this collection.  I am sure you will find too many to choose from.  Be sure to stay tuned tomorrow when I will feature another beautiful card from this collection.

Tinsel Time Collection - Post 1 of 4 - Holiday Express


Today is the 14th of the month and you know what that means - Spellbinders is releasing a slew of new collections for you to choose from.  Please follow my blog in the next few days/weeks to see all the new products they are offering!  You won't be disappointed.  All the products used are listed below at the end of this post.  These particular examples are using the new Holiday Express Dies from the new Tinsel Time Collection.  I have created two examples for you!




The above card started with an A2 card base to which I added some  Salty Ocean Distress Ink using a foam ink dauber to get that cloudy sky look.  I then took some sparkle silk and splattered it over the sky are to make it look like snow.  I then added a strip of white glitter paper across the bottom of the page to resemble a snowy ground cover.  The train was then die cut and assembled using red, green, white, tan, and black cardstock from my stash.  The engine was glued to the front of the card and the card was attached using foam squares.  I used several of my other die sets to fill my cart such as the Charming Cottage Box dies that I used for the tree and ginger bread.  The tree edges were inked with Mowed Lawn distress ink and the gingerbread was inked with Vintage Photo distress Ink.  His eyes and icing were added with a black and a white gel pen.  The package was created using a cut square of red paper to which I added a mirrored gold bow and ribbon from the Holiday Express Die Set.  The bow was cut from red Glitter paper ad attached to the card using a foam square.

The sentiment was glimmered using the Holiday Sentiments 2 along with some Silver Foil.  It was then cut out and popped up across the front of the card using foam squares.  



 

For this second card, which was also started with an A2 base card, I chose some very pretty tree lined paper for the background.  It featured snow covered trees with small silver accents and a cloudy grey sky.  I matted this decorative paper with some solid gray cardstock from my stash.  I created the train and cart using the Holiday Express Die set.  The train and cart were made from tan, grey, green, red, and black cardstock.  The engine window was cut from clear acetate and attached to the backside of the train.  It was attached to the front of the card.  The card was filled with three ornaments also from this set.  I then added a gold bow to the card using Mirrored Gold cardstock.  

I had placed some white cardstock underneath the train to appear as ground cover which made the perfect place to put a sentiment.  I used VersaFine Clair Nocturne ink to stamp the sentiment from the Dancing Holidays Sentiments Set.

I hope you liked these cards and will consider checking out my next posts to see all the fun items in both this and other collections that Spellbinders is releasing.  As usual, I will provide a complete list of products used so that you can easily recreate these or come up with your own designs for these new products!
