Quick And Easy Stamped Bauble Cards

Small Stamped Christmas Cards

Hi there. How are you. This is a good one for batch cards. They’re not too big and are reasonably quick to make.

I was watching crafty telly thinking “ I really like those stamps, I may need to buy them” when I realised I already had some similar stamps by the same company (Card-io) that I’d hardly used. They are tiny little stamps that are used to build up pretty effects and designs. I even have a set of stamp pegs!

To make the cards I used an inny and outy cut of a circle die to gently blend a little distress ink. They were just slightly offset to show the circle where the edges touch. This gave me a slight pattern to follow.

With a branch stamp I stamped 1st and 2nd generation with a beige ink pad, then with a sage green, stamp some leaves (again1st and 2nd generation) Stamping like this adds a some depth to the wreath.

A micron pen was used to add in the curly ribbon. I drew on top of the same line and on the baubles with a clear star glitter pen to add a bit of sparkle. I used glossy accents on the baubles to add some shape and dimension. A peel-off for the sentiment and were done.

Thanks for taking the time and stopping by. Till next time, have fun x
