Hello! I hope you all had a happy weekend. Have you been following the Holiday Tutorial Blitz at Split Coast Stampers? There is a whole passel of new tutorials posted, all featuring holiday projects. I wrote one of the tutorials for this Pocket Matchbook Candy Holder. You can see all the holiday tutorials, past and present, here, and you can see the Holiday Blitz Gallery right here.
I used the holly sprig from A Very Merry Christmas and colored it with Copic markers. For the background, I sponged a little Certainly Celery on Pure Luxury Ivory and then stamped the branch from Christmas Blessings. Cardstock layers are Rocket Red and Black Onyx.
On the inside, did the background the same as above and then stamped the sentiment, from Christmas Blessings. You can see all the step by step photos and even a video, here.
I also had to share this little card that my daughter made the other day. She really surprised me by wanting to make a card. She used the sprig of holly from A Very Merry Christmas and colored with Copics. The image was cut out and layered with Rocket Red and an All Spruced Up cardbase. This was her first time using Copics and I think she did a fantastic job.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope your day is full of stamping fun!
