Simon Says Stamp - Season of Wonder Release Blog Hop, Day 2

Updated: Oct 8, 2023



Hi Lovelies!

HAPPY WORLD CARD-MAKING DAY and Welcome to Day 2 of Simon Says Stamp's Season of Wonder Release Blog Hop! I've got a pair of ideas for your Christmas card-making with an added touch of some shimmery texture!


We are using layers of stencils on both cards to go from basic to fancy with just a little more effort. If you make a stack of these, you'll do all your ink-blending first and then add your texture and let it dry before you embellish.



Some of my happiest moments in the craft-room happen when I am stenciling, I just love the reveal of when you pull the stencil away and some magic happens!


Now let's review the key supplies for today's project:



Supplies are linked throughout the post and then again in the Supplies Section at the end of this post. Check out the entire Season of Wonder release by clicking the image below:

PROJECT WALKTHROUGH

STENCILING - INKS



  1. Adhere a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" piece of white 110lb cardstock to a Stencil Mat and position Just My Type stencil layer with the top part of the "Season's Greetings" sentiment over the cardstock

  2. Ink a blending brush with the Royal ink and ink-blend the top part of "Season's" onto the cardstock

  3. Swap out the stencil to complete the bottom part of the "Season's" using Marine ink.

  4. Swap out the Stencil again to ink the top part of "Greetings" in Marine and one last time to ink the bottom in Marine

  5. Set aside the completed Seasons Greetings panel and replace with another 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" piece of white 110lb cardstock

  6. Ink blend "Merry" in Mocha and Cappucino and "Christmas" in Cherry, Limelicious and Fairway



STENCILING - TEXTURE AND SHIMMER

  1. Adhere the Seasons Greetings card front onto the Stencil Mat

  2. Position the Rustic Snowflake Stencil over it

  3. Use a palette knife to apply Stickles Glitter Glue through the star shape of the stencil

  4. Remove the stencil quickly and clean with mild soap and warm water

  5. Set aside the card front to dry

  6. Adhere the Merry Christmas card front onto the Stencil Mat

  7. Position the Scattered Stars Stencil over it

  8. Mix one teaspoon of Distress Sparkle Texture Paste with about 3/4 of a teaspoon of Distress Tinsel Glitter or Distress Vintage Platinum Glitter

  9. Generously apply the mixture into the star openings of the stencil with a palette knife

  10. Remove the stencil quickly and clean with mild soap and warm water

  11. Set aside this card front also to dry


FINISHING

  1. Die-cut Schoolhouse Red cardstock using the 5 Stars dies. Attach foam dots to the medium-sized star and the large outline star

  2. Make card bases using the Lime and Blue Violet cardstock

  3. Once dry, trim the stenciled card fronts to 3 3/4" x 5" and adhere foam tape to the back

  4. Adhere the card fronts to the corresponding card bases

  5. Embellish the Merry Christmas card with the die-cut stars

  6. Embellish the Season's Greetings card with a single clear droplet


 

I has a little ink-bleeding on this card with using the Stickles Glitter Glue but I like the misty effect it gives.



Can you tell that I love sparkle on a holiday card?


The clear droplet is the perfect little touch to finish this frosty card!



It's simple, but it still wow's in my book!



Our glittery past adds the right touch of vintage sparkle to this Merry card!



The two and three toned stenciling are giving major Christmas vibes.



I love how a little die-cut can add such charm to a card!



Very, very MERRY I think!
