Come Let Us Adore Him Christmas Card

I am constantly making backgrounds and sometimes, depending on the design of the card, I cut and die cut those backgrounds and I have “leftover” pieces. In today’s video, I wanted to share two different Christmas cards made with just one background. Using Joy Clair Stamps with Memento Ink makes it super fun!

Color of the Month for November is Hunter Green

Color of the Month for November is Hunter Green

Color of the Month for November is Hunter Green. We feel this color is a perfect segway between Thanksgiving and the Christmas holiday season. We love dark rich greens inks and Tsukineko certainly has a great number of inks to choose from in this color hue. For a solid stamping ink try VersaFine in Rain Forest, VersaColor in Evergreen makes a nice blending ink with a sponge dauber and if you need a green with a bit of shine then don’t forget Delicata in Emerald Green.

November is also exciting because we are collaborating with Joy Clair Stamps this month. See the Joy Clair website for more information on their stamp sets.

Here is a peek of what we have coming up this month in cardmaking tutorials and videos!

See How to Make a Tattersal Background Pattern for a Card

One of my favorite things to do is create patterned backgrounds. I have wanted to find a way to create a pattern that I am always seeing on men’s shirts. In my research, I found it had an actual name, Tattersall!! You could use line stamps, but I found using markers made this pattern super quick and easy!
