CHRISTMAS IN THE NEW YEAR?! | Stretching Christmas Stamps

Hi there! I have an obsession and love with the amazing Christmas stamps and images and have a hard time putting them in storage when the new year comes. So, today’s video will show you how to use Christmas stamps and supplies to create cards during the cold winter season without screaming Christmas.

To start, I stamped all of my critters and images down using a Copic friendly black ink so I can color them in. Then, I colored them in using a variety of Copic Sketch Markers and a simple blending technique (shown and described in detail throughout the video).

Next, I stamped my sweater background using the Nordic Winter stamp set from Gina K in Charcoal Brown ink on kraft cardstock. I love this stamp set because you can create and customize whatever sweater patterns you want using all of the different designs.

Then, added my critters onto a scallop tag and added it on my background. Finally, I added my Grateful die cut on the bottom of the tag and added everything together onto a card base.
