Loads of Christmas Card Inspiration with Juliana Michaels

Hi everyone! It's Juliana Michaels and I'm so happy to be guesting again here on the Sunny Studio blog. Today, I have four cards to share with you using some of the new stamps and dies from the Winter release. These stamps are perfect for creating both Christmas and Winter themed cards.

For my first card, I created a fun Christmas shaker card using the Gleeful Reindeer set. I stamped two flying reindeer images, colored them with Prismacolor Colored Pencils and then die cut them using the coordinating dies. I then created a shaker card and used the snowflake stamps to create a background for inside the shaker. I stamped the sentiment onto white cardstock and adhered it to the front of the card. The final step was to adhere the adorable reindeer to the front of the shaker card so that they look like they are flying across the snowy sky.

My second card is another Christmas card. I again stamped the images from the Gleeful Reindeer set, colored them with Prismacolor Colored Pencils and die cut them using the coordinating dies. I created the snowy sky background by applying Distress Ink to the cardstock using a foam blending tool. After applying the ink, I used a paint brush to splatter water onto the paper and then dried it by dabbing it with a paper towel. This is such a quick and easy way to create a snowy looking background. I then adhered all the cute images to the card front to create a sweet little scene. For a bit of dimension, I adhered some of them with double sided foam tape.

These next two cards use the Mug Hugs stamp and die set. Since I'm a coffee lover, I really enjoyed creating and playing with this set. On the Wishing You A Cup of Cheer card, I used Prismacolor Colored Pencils to color in the mug and cup images. I used a Sakura Gelly Roll Pen in Metallic Silver to color in the snowflakes and add a bit of shine. I stamped the sentiment using Versamark Embossing Ink and heat embossed it with white embossing powder.

For my final card, I again used Prismacolor Colored Pencils for my coloring. These are a new to me coloring medium, and I've really enjoyed learning how to color with them. I again used the Sakura Gelly Roll Pen in Metallic Silver to color the snowflakes. I created the background behind the cups by apply Distress Ink to the cardstock using a foam blending tool. For this one I did an all over application of the ink to allow the stamped and die cut images to stand out against it.
