I’m continuing on with the stamping techniques that you can do with the Cheers to the Season stamp set. This stamp set is so versatile and is great for all your upcoming fall and winter events. Plus, this stamp set lends itself to a numerous amount of stamping techniques.
I’ve already showed you a few different fall themed cards with the leaf image from this stamp set. I used a direct ink to stamp method and then a few different cards showing different baby wipe techniques. If you missed those blog post you can catch them HERE and HERE.
For today’s Christmas card using this stamp set I used the Marker Technique. You may be wondering what is the Marker Technique; I’m not sure I’ve ever heard of that. Well it is simply using markers to multi-color an image before you stamp it onto your cardstock. This can be done in a couple different ways.
First you will need to color your image with the different color markers. For today’s card I used Real Red and Shaded Spruce markers to multi-color my stamp. I then huffed on the stamp and then proceeded to stamp it onto a piece of Basic White cardstock. Then I used the fine tip of the marker to fill in where it wasn’t stamped so nice with the coordinating marker colors. You can also add some shading with the fine tip of other color markers if you like. You may not like how your image stamped but don’t give up; keep filling in with the fine tip of the markers until you get your desired results.
The second way you can use markers to add color to your stamps is to multi-color your image using markers and then lightly mist your stamp with water before stamping. This is more of a watercolor method and is generally better to use watercolor cardstock to stamp on. This is generally a more smeary method and not a crisp stamped image. If you enjoy the watercolor look you will want to give this method a try.
Let’s Take a Closer Look at this Christmas Card Using the Cheers to the Season Stamp Set
I’m not sure if you can see from this picture but the Shaded Spruce cardstock was embossed with the Merry Melody 3D embossing folder. When I read the stamp “Tis the Season” to be Jolly stuck in my head so I thought the background embossed with the Musical notes would be perfect.
I also wanted to bring out some sparkle to my card so I added a piece of the Silver Adhesive Backed Glimmer Paper. You will not find this paper pack in any of the Stampin’ Up! publications it is an online exclusive paper pack. You can find all the online exclusive items HERE.
Stamping Techniques Tip:
Here’s a tip for you regarding the Sliver Glimmer Paper or really any background paper that you don’t necessarily want to waste by covering it up with another layer of cardstock. Use any type of punch or framelits that you have to die cut or punch out the center of your paper you wish not to cover up. In this case I didn’t want to cover all that gorgeous silver glimmer paper with my shaded spruce cardstock so before adding it to my card I die cut out the center using the Stylish Shapes dies as shown below:
By using the framelit dies from the Stylish Shapes dies I can leave a nice border around the outside edge of the glimmer paper and use the center die cut out pieces for another card. This also makes it so your cards are not as heavy or thick and no one will be the wiser that you removed the center portions.
I also wanted to incorporate the silver from the glimmer paper into other elements on my card so I used the Rhinestones to add some sparkle to the ornaments and the Silver and White ribbon from the mini catalog to tie it all together; so to speak.
