Holiday cheers using Expressions stamps & Stencils

Hello friends!

Christmas festivity is at its peak now and countdown started to celebrate coming New Year!!! So why not make some fun quick and easy cards using fabulous Expressions Stencils and stamps!

Card 1

Season's Greetings

I created a Northern light sky background using different DI on a glossy white CS and applied transparent texture paste using Garden Floral Spray stencil and added the crystal clear powder to it quickly. 

Now tear a strip out of the bottom part only to create more interest and textures. You can see the textures clearly in this pic:

I die cut Season's Greetings text 2 times out of textured white and black CS. And placed the black letters on the white one for more dimensions, the steps shown below how to do:

A lettering can be placed easily now.

Embellished it with different colorful half pearls. 

Garden Floral Spray

Other Supplies used:
Cardstocks: Glossy white CS, textured white CS, black CS, white foam sheet
 Distress inks: fossilized amber, twisted citron, mowed lawn, hickory smoke, carved pumpkin, candied apple, seedless preserves, wilted violet, salty ocean, mermaid lagoon
Die: In a word: Holiday Tiles Cutaways from Winnie&Walter
Transparent Texture paste: Rangers
Crystal Clear Powder: from Papericious

Card 2
Cheerful Triangle Trees

For this card, I die cut some triangles and using the waves stencil, I created the soft neon colorful waves pattern on them. Before drying quickly applied crystal clear powder directly.

On my black card base, I stencil the Merry Christmas word using Silver Glitter Paste and some stars to create the sky. Now using pop dots I adhered all the triangles as Christmas tree.......so easy-peasy:) 
Cool stencil technique with glitter paste, right!

Supplies used:


Merry Christmas

Other Supplies used:
Cardstock: Black CS, white CS
Die: Nesting dies Bunting (Triangle) from Xcut

Glitter Paste: Silver color from Bo Bunny

Card 3

Pink Roses

On a white panel, I placed the stencil as shown in the pics and used the only pink one side of this beautiful creation.

Roses stencil is so versatile, you can create so many designs with it. Here I created my own Pink roses using Zig watercolor brushes in soft hues to match my BG. And applied crystal clear Nuvo drops with my brush for a little sparkle. You can see the shimmer in the pic below.

Stamp the sentiment in pink. Now I placed the stencil BG on a pink panel.  Using double running Stitch Rectangle die cut a textured white panel and adhered that pink panel on it and then to the card base. Added a grey color lace with a gorgeous ribbon and twine with a bow. Placed those roses using pop dots. Finished it off with some sequins and splatters.



Other Supplies used:
Cardstock: Textured white, whisper white and Raspberry CS
Die: Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Dies from Stamplorations
Zig Clean Color Real Brushes
Nuvo Crystal drops- White Bizzard
Sequins, dual shade twine and soft baby pink ribbon are from my stash

Card 4

 It's all about Birthday Celebration!

       First of all, I die cuts lots of Hexagon shapes in two sizes. Using my Misti I stamped all the tiny images together at a time:) work made easy and fast! Heat embossed them all. Using Distress inks I gave them an ombre effect in the centre to highlight the details of the images clearly.
Placed them up all to create a background with all Party elements but don't paste them! Took a picture of it with my cell phone (I found that no matter how hard you try to make an order when it comes to trimming with scissors, it's easy to get into a mess).

I die cut an another Hexagon from out of my front card base and placed an acetate sheet on it. And overlapped with one more window hexagon.

    Now I popped them up all to create a colorful and dimensional background and trimmed them with my scissors from all the edges. Die cut Let's Party sentiment out of glitter and white foam sheet and placed them on my base card.

The Birthday cake peeking from the inside is stamped on a black color hexagon, using the cutout front as my guide and heat embossed the image Now highlighted the embossing image using my Pigma Brush pens, how pretty effect:)
  On another white CS, I distressed it from all the sides using picked Raspberry ink. Stamped the banner at the top, sentiment too from the same set and heat embossed them. On a white strip, stamped another sentiment too and heat embossed it. Cut out two strips the golden glitter color foam sheet. Now place all the elements on my card using pop dots!
