EBE - Holiday 2016 Previews

Hello Everyone, Welcome to the Essentials by Ellen 2016 Holiday Previews. You should have come from the Amazing Sandy Allnock's Blog. But if you did not, you can start at The CLASSroom so you don't miss anything.

For my first project, I used the new Stitches Cover Plate, Bird Shapes, the berry sprig image from Homespun Holiday, and peace die-cut from Holiday Words. 

To begin, I first distressed my card panel with Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Mowed Lawn and Peacock Feather then run the Stitches Cover Plate to give that stitched background. Then I die-cut the bird from the Bird Shapes dies four times and adhered it on top of the other. The top part of the wings were colored with Copic Markers in gray and added some Stardust Stickles to give that glittered look. I also added the berry sprig from the Homespun Holiday on the beak of the bird.

For the sentiment "May your holidays be filled with wonder and touched by" is from the new Season To Sparkle stamp set, I simply cover the work "peace" with washi before inking it on the Versamark ink. Then removing the washi tape before stamping the sentiment on a gray cardstock and white heat embossed to give a white colored look. The peace die-cut is from the Holiday Words die, I also die-cut the word 4 times adhered it on top of the other and then distressed the bottom and added some Stardust Stickles for glitz.

Next, I added some Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear sequins to finish off this card.

For this next card have a similar concept. I first distressed the card panel with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Worn Lipstick and then added some pink dots using my Copic markers. I also added some stars image from Season To Sparkle stamp set. The sentiment "Tis the season to Sparkle" is also from the same stamp set.

Next, I heat white embossed the snowflakes image from the same set. Then distressed each snowflakes and die-cut them with Season To Sparkle Designer dies. I also added some Stardust Stickles on this card as well.

Next, I stamped the rock image randomly on the the white cardstock, distressed it then fussy cut. The deer was stamped colored with Copic Markers and die-cut as well. All die-cut images were adhered with foam tape for dimensions.

Here's another look.
