I made two holiday cards in traditional colors, red and green. They are featuring cling stamps from the Christmastime 2022 Collection by Penny Black. I love the outline floral cling stamps by Penny Black. They are always so great for coloring using any medium !
The first card is showing the Scarlet (40-861). It’s a beautiful holiday arrangement with a large poinsettia.
I stamped the Scarlet (40-861) on a watercolor paper panel in Antique Linen DI and watercolored the image. After watercoloring I ink blended the perimeter of the panel in Picked Raspberry, Candied Apple and Aged Mahogany DIs and splattered white opaque ink on the panel while covering the poinsettia with a piece of paper.
To add some interest to the card I cut the right side of the panel using Textural (51-729) die and adhered the panel flat on a kraft cardbase. The sentiment is from the Meaningful set (30-919) from the Winter Dream 2022 Collection. I white heat embossed it on a strip of black cardstock and foam mounted it on the card. I added a few yellow rhinestones to the center of the poinsettea and the card was done!
The next card is featuring the Amaryllis Bundle (40-855) set.
I stamped the Amaryllis Bundle (40-855) in brown on a watercolor paper panel and watercolored the floral image. After the watercoloring I added details using Polychromos colored pencils. I wanted the outlines to be a bit darker, so that I drew the outline of the amaryllis using a black fine liner.
I cut the colored panel using a die from the Stitched Nested Frames (51-535) and foam mounted it on the ombre red cardbase. I ink blended the bottom of a dark red cardbase in Fired Brick and Vintage Photo DIs to get the ombre red one.
The sentiment is from the Hope Is… (30-934) stamp set and Hope (51-752) die from the Winter Dream 2022 Collection. I cut the Hope (51-752) from dark red cardstock three times and layered them all before I adhered it on the card. The sentiment was white heat embossed on a strip of black cardstock.
I finished off the card with a few clear sequins.
Penny Black released two Christmas collections this year, Christmastime 2022 and Winter Dream 2022 with tons of awesome holiday items! Please stop by their blog and YouTube channel to see the whole collection!
