Holiday Cards Part 3 & Stampin' Up! Holiday Promotion

Just a few more holiday cards to share today. Again, some items used are retired. The cards tho will give you a layout idea to use and help you build your own cards whether using it for Christmas or other occasions.


Layering is easy to do and makes a great card layout.


This is "one stamp" used to create the whole image of the trees, the bird, and Season's Greetings. I used Stampin' Write Markers to color in the stamp and then stamped the image on the card stock. You don't need to stamp images in only one color when you ink the stamps with the brush tip side of the Stampin' Write Markers from Stampin' Up!.

When you use the Stampin' Write markers, it is easy to only ink specific areas on a stamp. Let's say on the stamp above I only wanted the trees. I would use my marker to color in/ink the trees then stamp it on the card stock. The bird and the greeting will not show as they were not inked.

When you use Stampin' Write Markers to ink the stamps ... when you are done inking HUFF on the stamp to add a bit of moisture, then stamp. The HUFF really does make a difference.

If you are planning to make your own holiday cards this year, now is a great time to order. Next month too, Stampin' Up! will be doing a Holiday Bundle promotion which will give you discounts on a number of our holiday items.
