All You Need is Love…And Christmas Cookies!

Happy August.  I hope everyone is surviving the heat.  To help beat the heat here, I started making my Christmas cards.

I made this card is using Catherine Pooler’s Christmas Cookies stamp set and dies.  I used this set last year and made the stamps look like ornaments hanging from a tree branch.  This year I am coloring them as cookies.

To start, I stamped the designs on Catherine Pooler’s white card stock using Twilight gray ink. This ink is a nice, medium gray that can be used for no line coloring as well.  I then colored the entire image using E51.  I went along the very edge of the stamp using E57. I went over the edge of the E57 line with E 35.  I went over my E35 edge with E53.  I colored over the entire image using my E51 once again.

I then went and grabbed my Gina K Designs Glitz Glitter Gel.  I used White, Turquoise Sea and Bubblegum as my frosting for my cookies.  I was going for the frosted and sugared look on my cookies. To decorate my cookies, I used Nuvo Drops in Bright Gold, Simply White and Autumn Red.

I used my Nuvo double ended scoop tool and dropped very little Glitz Glitter Gel onto each image.  I smeared the gel around with a Q-Tip and then let the images dry overnight.  I fussy cut the images out along the dark line.

For the background, I used the large snowflake from the Christmas Cookie stamp set and stamped it over the card-stock using It’s A Boy ink.  I also stamped the sentiment using It’s A Boy Ink and cut it out with the circle die that came with the die set. I cut the stamped card panel out using Spellbinders’s Venise Lace die.  I love the little holes along the border it creates.

I fussy cut out all of the ornaments and arranged them on my card panel.  I used my Xyron sticker maker to adhere them.  I trimmed off the pieces that were hanging off of the card panel.  I put foam tape on the back of my sentiment and adhered it to the card panel.

I put foam tape on the back of the card panel and adhered it to my card base.  I did not think it needed any more embellishment, so I stamped Merry Christmas on the inside of my card and was finished.
