Thinking of you this Christmas - Guest Designer Joy

Hello friends! It's Joy here with my first card as the guest designer for Gerda Steiner Designs. I am so very excited and I would like to thank Luba for giving me this opportunity. I love all the adorable stamps they have, and for today’s project, I would like to share a card I made using the Holiday Friends Stamp Set.

First, I stamped the images on a masking sheet, and fussy cut them. Then I used the Instalove die by Mama Elephant to cut three Polaroids out of a watercolour cardstock. For the first Polaroid, I stamped the reindeer and the Christmas tree with VersaFine Onyx Black Ink. Then I masked the images and the ground and used Tumbled Glass and Blueprint Sketch Distress Inks to colour the sky. After that, I masked the sky and coloured the ground with Mowed Lawn and Evergreen Bough Distress Inks.

For the second one, I stamped the reindeer twice on each side, masked them and stamped the Christmas tree in between. Next, I masked the tree and the ground and coloured the top part of the panel with Candied Apple and Fired Brick Distress Inks. Then I masked the top part and used Black Soot Distress Ink to colour the ground.

For the third one, I stamped the reindeer, masked it and then stamped the gifts. After masking the gifts, I coloured the top part using Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink. I used the Classy Stripes Stencil by Altenew and Carved Pumpkin Distress Ink to add texture to the wall. Next, I used Hickory Smoke Distress Ink to colour the ground.

Then I coloured all the images with my Zig Markers. I applied Diamond Distress Stickles over the stars. After that, I stamped the sentiment on a white A2 card base using VersaFine Onyx Black Ink. Once the stars were dry, I assembled the card.

Thank you for visiting the blog. I had so much fun making this card and I hope I inspired you today. Have a lovely day.
