Christmas Release from Simon Hurley with Ranger Ink and Spellbinders!

Friday, July 21, 2023

I am happy to share some Christmas cards from today's release from Simon Hurley and Ranger Ink with dies from Spellbinders! I was gifted three photopolymer stamp sets and three background rubber stamps to create with and I love the vintage feel of some of the new sets. For my first card, I tried hard to lean into the vintage Christmas feel as the Silly Santas set have wonderful vintage Santa images. I stamped one of the Santa in red and use the coordinating die to cut it out.

The next layer is some pink cardstock with a foiled frame and stamped a sentiment and smaller images in teal and green inks from the Winter Things. The background is a piece of patterned polka dot paper with the largest Winter Things stamp with a soft brown ink and I distressed the edges and splattered it before adding some Snowfall Grit Paste with some Lunar Paste. I layered the cards with foam adhesive and glued this to an A2 card. I wanted to add a little more, so I stamped holly in the corners and used some red Pops of Color for the berries.

My second card is a light up card! I used a Pear Blossom Press One Light for my star on the tree to light up. I hid this mechanism behind the background stamped with Nordic Knit and I distressed the edges and splattered for more interest. I stamped all of my images and used the coordinating dies to cut them out from the Retro Holiday set. I love that the gifts are two stamps - one that stamps the outline and shaded areas and the second can be used to add color.

The final card is a shaker card using the new Winter Wonderland stamp set that I stamped with blue ink as well as the sentiment on white cardstock. I used the half circle die to create my window opening and layered acetate behind the window. The background of the shaker is the Stippled stamp that was embossed with white embossing powder on dark blue cardstock. These were layered together with foam adhesive and used a retired Sparkle Blends to be my shaker bits! 

Finally, my shaker panel was attached to some Christmas patterned paper, then on some sparkly cardstock and onto a card base. I hope these cards bring you some fun inspiration using the new products and you have fun shopping!
