Watercolor Christmas - Crafty Carrot Co Blog Hop

Welcome to the October Blog Hop with the Crafty Carrot Collective! Today we are sharing projects using the Watercolor Christmas Card Kit from Stampin' Up!. I have had a sneak peek at the teams projects today, and I will say it just may be our best hop yet!

To start ... I want to tell you about the Watercolor Christmas Kit. 

The kit comes with with everything you will need to create 20 handmade cards,
including die cut, ready to use pieces, 
embellishments and full color instructions.

$27.00 CAD   item:144649

To coordinate with this card kit, we have the Watercolor Christmas Stamp Set.

(wood mount also available)

Being artisans, we wanted to show you new ways to use this amazing kit and coordinating stamp set! I created 5 Christmas cards for you today ...

The kit comes with Gold Foil sheets to line the envelopes with. I used these sheets to create layers and punched accents. I added the Pool Party Baker's Twine, this was not included in the kit.

Using an Aqua Painter and Emerald Envy ink, I watercolored a background to the tag. Use a Heat Tool to speed up the drying process and then stamp your greeting with Momento Black Ink.

Using the multi-line greeting stamp, I stamped the phrase repeatedly on Whisper White Cardstock with Soft Sky ink to create a background paper. Using the same stamp, I stamped a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock with Momento Black Ink and then fussy cut out the "deck the halls".

I added a sheet of Soft Sky cardstock to the mix and used the Big Shot and the Holly Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.
