Create a Beautiful Icy Blue Holiday Card

by Kyriakos Pachadiroglou

Create a Beautiful Icy Blue Holiday Card

Although red, green and gold colors are the most representative ones of Christmas, the last couple of years, I am quite fun of blue that combines so nicely with the silver and contrasts the white. Stars are favorite shapes of this season and using Delicata Sapphire Blue on lighter shades of blue, using MEMENTO bahama blue, give more depth on the card.

Skill: Advanced
Time: 30 minutes

Directions


Step 1

Die-cut 3 different sized star shapes.


Step 2

Place the star shapes on a piece of 4×6 card stock and spray first with the Fireworks! Bahama blue and then with Ink Potion No9. Remove the stars and dry the card stock with a heat tool.


Step 3

Lightly cover areas with MEMENTO Bahama blue ink pad.


Step 4

Place the star shapes, white side up, stamp with VersaMark the swirls stamp, cover with Mboss clear embossing powder and heat set.


Step 5

Distress the stars with Delicata Sapphire Blue.


Step 6

Stamp design on the stars, cover with Mboss white embossing powder and heat set. When finished, lightly press the edges of the stars on the VersaMark watermark ink pad, and heat set Mboss silver embossing powder.


Step 7

Set the card stock piece on the card with Tear It! Tape and start placing the ribbon.


Step 8

Continue adding the stars and the rest of the embellishments

See How to Double Stamp to Create a “Give Thanks” Card

See How to Double Stamp to Create a "Give Thanks" Card

Hello crafty friends, Martha Lucia here! Today, I am sharing the double stamping with Memento Ink. One of the most versatile inks are Memento, they come in multiples shades and you can easily coordinate and found colors in between. I am featuring the stamp set Fall Leaves from Joy Clair. This month we are working together and you can find a lot of inspiration with the two brands in our corresponding blogs.

Directions

Bamboo Leaves and Cottage Ivy Memento colors inkpads

Stamp the solid image of the leaves with the lightest color of your Memento Ink. I used New Sprout and a stamping tool to stamp several images at once, but you can use an acrylic block to make the same. With the two darker colors of Memento Ink stamp the lines inside of the first images stamped. I used Bamboo Leaves and Cottage Ivy Memento colors.

stamp the sentiment, "Give Thanks"

Resize your layer and paste it with double-sided foam tape over your card base. To cut mine, I used the large Embossed Edge Square Frame from Kat Scrappiness. In a separate piece of paper, stamp the sentiment, “Give Thanks”. I used one sentiment included on the stamp set Fall Greetings from Joy Clair and Cottage Ivy Memento Ink. Finalize your card adding a colorful frame. I used Marigold/Gold Glossy Rinea Foiled Paper and embossed edge square die cuts from Kat Scrappiness to create mine.

Thank you for stopping by and see you soon!

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!
