How about a holiday card to cool you down or warm your heart or both? I am just so in love with these new Strawberry Kisses stamps from artist, Sally Hunter. I colored 4 of them tonight so expect to see more in the immediate future!! lol
The ones I used on my project are from the Love You stamp set. I just think this little kitty is absolutely precious!!!! Don't you? I stamped out and colored the image with my Spectrum Noir markers. Do you love to color as much as I do? It really just relaxes me especially when I'm using these Spectrum Noir markers because they just color so effortlessly!! It is just such a pleasure!!
Just center the punch between the two corners. TOP TIP - Keep your paper a little bit longer until after you punch the end off, then trim it. That will give you something to hold on to!! It can get a bit difficult otherwise.
This is what it should look like. (please ignore my ink covered fingers! lol)
Finally the finished banner.
After I finished coloring, I just pulled out some complementary papers and layered them under my trimmed image. I added a bit of ribbon and Stickles. I wanted to have a little banner on my card so I cut out little rectangles of paper and then took my square punch and trimmed the end to make the two points. So quick and easy. I added the banner with double sided adhesive foam squares for dimension.
Not quite dry but you get the idea.
I also stamped and colored my sentiment then layered it on card stock. A little Crystal Stickles added onto the words for sparkle and then I adhered it to the card. Since I already had the Stickles out I figured that the hat needed to shine so I put some on there too. To finish I added a couple of pins.
It came together so quickly. I think I will get busy on the other images I have colored so I will talk to you later. Thanks for looking today. Until next time...happy scrapping.
