Happy Holidays to all you Clearsnap fans! I hope all your handmade items went out in time for the celebrations. For cardmakers like me, if you don’t plan ahead, the holidays can become a little stressful. But this year, everything couldn’t have gone any more smoothly and that was a first. Nevertheless, there are always just a few more cards to be made at the last minute for my local peeps, and as always for holiday cards, I like to keep it simple. This time I made use of my SMOOCH Accent Inks with dry embossed designs for really fast card projects!
I chose a simple wreath design from a small Sizzix embossing folder and used those edges to make coloring inside the lines a piece of cake.
With your choice of colors, you can blend to create soft highlights.
Or you can allow your deeper hues to dry, and using the lovely brush that comes with the Accent Ink, draw in sharper highlights as seen above.
Chestnut Roan Chalk Ink is my favorite ink for stamping sentiments and for distressing edges. This year, I fell in love with all of Clearsnap’s Chalk Inks – the fast drying time and silky blending qualities have made these products new faves for me!
Fast and cute. I hope you are all having a fantastic holiday!
