Stampin’ Up! Good Tidings for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Hop

Amy's Inkin' Krew Team Blog Hop

I used the Stampin’ Up! Good Tidings stamp set to create a card for our Merry Christmas themed blog hop for this month.

Good Tidings is such a beautiful stamp set with an awesome focal sentiment, don’t you think?  One of my team members featured this stamp set in a recent blog hop we did together and her colors inspired me when I was creating this card.  See Kristi’s card HERE.  

I love the green, black and red colors Stampin’ Up! chose for Christmas cards this year.  Stamp the holly leaf solid image in Old Olive, then stamp the second detail stamp in Basic Black.  Stamp the solid berries in Real Red, then stamp the second berry image on top in Cherry Cobbler.  The stem was stamped in Early Expresso for both of the images, then I fussy cut the whole thing out with Paper Snips.  Create the smaller holly image using the same basic colors.

(Hint:  stamp onto Whisper White Thick card stock)

A panel of the Merry Music Specialty DSP was adhered to the front of my Whisper White Thick card stock base.  The largest sentiment from Good Tidings was stamped in Basic Black Archival ink onto a panel of Whisper White, then  the panel was adhered to the front with liquid glue.  I cut one of the Foil Snowflakes in half and also added it with liquid glue.  The large holly image was popped on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  A bow was then created with some of the Old Olive 1/8″ sheer ribbon, Silver Sequin Trim and a small length of Black Baker’s Twine and adhered with a glue dot.

The inside Whisper White panel was stamped with the smaller sentiment from Good Tidings in Basic Black, then another holly with berries was stamped directly above the sentiment.  Enjoy!

Now, for more of the hop.  We hope you enjoy all of your stops today!

Stampin’ Up! Good Tidings for Christmas

I used the Good Tidings stamp set from Stampin’ Up! to create the Christmas card I am sharing with you today.  

Stampin' Up! Good Tidings-Cardiology by Jari

The sketch inspiration is from the challenge over at Just Add Ink this week

Just Add Ink #380

Good Tidings is a two step stamp set, and all of the images except the sentiments are meant to be stamped twice.  Depending on your preference, you can either stamp the more solid image darker or stamp it off on scrap paper, then add the second image on top of it.   And, depending on your preference, you may stamp that second image lighter or darker.  I played around a little with each  set of leaves and berries until I got the coloring I wanted.  If you look carefully on the sheet the stamps come on, it is marked with numbers and letters. (1a, 1b, 1c, 1d, etc.)

I used Old Olive on the holly leaves, Cherry Cobbler on the berries, and Early Expresso on the stem.  Since I was going to fussy cut out the holly, I stamped those images on Whisper White Thick card stock.

I kept the inside very simple, with just a strip of the same Merry Little Christmas DSP adhered to the side of my Whisper White panel.  The sentiment is also from the Good Tidings stamp set.  

A complete list of supplies and card stock cuts will be at the end of this post.
