How to Create Color Swatches for Handmade Christmas Cards

ink colors for christmas cards

by Jowilna Nolte

Hi everyone, today I am showing you how I swatch out my favorite ink colors for my handmade Christmas cards. I usually choose the classic reds and greens for the holidays and then add some additional colors like a brown/green and purple/red color to compliment. These additional colors I used for stamping images like twigs and berries or shading tones. Another feature in this video, I show how these water-based inks can easily be used for watercolor effects. Each time I stamp with a color, I also lift the color with a paintbrush and color to create a soft finish.

These amazing Color Combo stamp & die sets from Waffle Flower Crafts are amazing and I can’t wait to get started on creating color swatches for all my ink pad families. Swatching colors helps generate more crafting ideas and helps you imagine how colors can be used together.

Skill: All levels
Time: Varies on the number of ink pads

See How to Make a Snowflake Shaker Ornament with Mboss

by Martha Lucia Gomez

Hello crafty friends, Martha Lucia here! Today, I am sharing a snowflake shaker ornament that you can use to decorate your gifts and/or Christmas tree. To create this, I am using a shaker dimension set with a snowflake design, VersaMark Clear Ink and Mboss Blue Icicle. Like this set came with a piece of acetate sheet to cover the free areas, I made it like a shaker piece adding some sprinkles.

Skill: Advanced
Time: 30 minutes

Directions


Step 1

Ink one of the sides of your or the ornament directly with the VersaMark Inkpad. Cover it with your selection of Mboss color. I used the Blue Icicle.


Step 2

Melt the powder with the heat tool. And repeat the process twice or three times to give more dimension to your ornament.


Step 3

Cut a piece of card stock with the same shape or your ornament and apply over it some touches of Frost Sheer Shimmer Stix. Let the paper dry naturally.


Step 4

Paste the base shape or double-sided foam tape onto the inked shape. Add your fillers, it could be sequins, sprinkles, beads or whatever you want. Adhere the clear acetate on top with liquid glue and cover it with the embossed design. Finalize your ornament adding a tie or pasting it to your gift. You can try different designs and different colors of Mboss to add your personal touch! Thank you for stopping by and see you soon!
