The holiday season is a time for spreading joy, love, and, of course, crafting!
What better way to add a personal touch to your season’s greetings than by creating your very own festive cards?
The Merry & Bright suite offers a stunning array of stamps, dies, and coordinating products designed to make your holiday cards shine brighter than ever. One of the standout techniques we’ll explore is coloring vellum with Stampin’ Blends to create unique and colorful Christmas bulbs that adorn your cards.
Vellum is a versatile crafting material, and when combined with Stampin’ Blends, it becomes a canvas for your creativity. In this weeks LIVE I showed how to add vibrant colors to vellum to create your own custom Christmas bulbs. The result? A radiant and translucent effect that adds an extra layer of elegance to your holiday cards. Super fun!
Suite Swap: A Creative Twist
This layout actually came from the project I created as part of our Diemonds team suite swap. For the swap, team members signed up for the Suite of their choice from the Holiday Mini Catalog and divided all of the consumables into 4 piles. I divided these among the team members and each created a card layout using each of the suite products sent to them. This was an exciting way to see the versatility of these crafting goodies and get inspired to craft your holiday masterpieces. Check out a few of the alternatives I made using the same layout as today’s project. Do you have a favorite?
Whether you’re a seasoned crafter or just starting, our Merry & Bright crafting adventure is perfect for everyone. This product suite is jam packed with all the inspiration you need to create heartfelt, homemade cards that will bring smiles to your loved ones’ faces.
This is just the beginning of our holiday crafting journey, so be sure to stay tuned for more project ideas, tips, and tricks to make your holiday season extra special. We can’t wait to see the Merry & Bright magic you’ll create!
