Joy to the World

Hello everyone, it's Maria and it's my turn to share some inspiration here on the blog!  Does anyone else love mixing and matching their stamp set and dies?  I do!  I love mixing and matching stamp sets to create a unique card for a certain occasion. 

For this project, I am showcasing the So Thankful Stamp Set and coordinating dies along with the A2 Diagonal Stitched Layered Card Toppers Die Set, Country Corner Accessories Stamps and coordinating dies, Christmas Wishes Stamp Set and Wave Ribbon Banner Stack coordinating dies, with the Plaid 6x6 Stencil.

I started by die-cutting two panels of some Neenah solar white card stock using the A2 Diagonal Stitched Layered Card Toppers Die Set.  I adhered the bigger panel to an A2-size notecard.  The smaller panel was inked up using a Blender Brush, with the Plaid 6x6 Stencil and Alloy Hybrid Ink.  I foam-mounted this panel on the card for added dimension.

Next, I stamped the images from the So Thankful and Country Corner Accessories Stamp Sets with Raven Hybrid Ink.  This is my favorite ink to use to stamp my images.  I colored the images in with alcohol markers and used the coordinating dies to cut them out.  I adhered the Christmas Tree to the Red Truck with liquid glue and foam-mounted both images on the card front for added dimension.

I stamped the sentiment from the Christmas Wishes stamp set on some black card stock with Watermark Ink.  I sprinkled some white embossing powder and heat set with my heating tool. Next, I used the Wave Ribbon Stack Die Set to cut them all out.  I love using this stamp set and die combo!  You get to stamp it at one go and have a bunch of sentiment strips to be used for future projects! Such a genius idea!  I adhered the sentiment on the card using liquid glue.

I finished my card design by adhering some gold baubles on the Christmas Tree and Stickles to the star, for added texture and interest!  Here's another look at the card:

I hope I have given you some inspiration today to mix and match your stamp sets and dies.  The supplies I used are listed and linked below.  Thank you so much for stopping by, and have a wonderful day!
