Guest Designer Spotlight: Christmas Cards with Kimberly Rendino

I'm so excited to welcome Kimberly Rendino to the blog today as our special guest.  She has some gorgeous cards that are going to knock your socks off!  Take it away Kimberly...

Hi there!  I’ve created three cards to share with you today using Holiday Style, Merry Sentiments and the coordinating dies!  

My first card is completely heat embossed!   To create the fun snowy effect on the pine bough, I mixed together a bit of clear and white embossing powder.   The shadow of the silver ornament was heat embossed with sparkle embossing powder.

For my second card I used the pine bough from Holiday Style to create a wreath.   The little berries were stamped with the Autumn Splendor stamp set, and coated with Glossy Accents.   I added the white accent on top of the Glossy Accents with a paint pen!

The third card showcases the fun light bulbs in the Merry Sentiments set.   I began by embossing the light bulb die into a piece of white cardstock repeatedly.   This is a great way to get more mileage from your dies!   I stamped and die cut a rainbow of light bulbs and coated them with Glossy Accents.   Once dry, I added them to a “cord” made of embroidery floss.   A coat of Wink of Stella glitter marker makes the ‘Merry’ sentiment sparkle.
