This stamp set, has so many beautiful elements and really wonderfully matching sentiments to go along.
There are three different sized and variation poinsettia flowers which are just perfect for any Christmas theme project, and the beautiful holy leaves, one is the swirl holy leaves, great for creating Christmas wreaths and the small Holy leaf to embellish your projects and to make custom patterned backgrounds for your Christmas cards.
This stamp set also has a big sentiment, “Christmas” which is hand lettered along with coordinating sub sentiments that will create different sentiments as per choice.

dec2.jpg

 

 

 

A BRIEF TUTORIAL:

  • For this canvas, 
    Place the canvas flat on the table. 
  • Spray the shimmer sprays on the canvas and let them spread randomly and cover the entire canvas. Sprays used are Sweet sunshine, Grape juice and Sweet Pumpkin. Let it air-dry.
  • On a scrap green colored paper, put double tape on one side and die-cut leaves from the paper such that the leaf die-cuts have adhesive on the top. 
  • Gently peel the backing paper and place the fun foil (Green colored) on the leaf. Burnish it properly. (You can even run it through the Big shot machine, for smooth spreading.)
  • Peel off to reveal the leaves covered with the foil.
  • Repeat the process to make 3 more leaves.
  • To form a wreath we need 4 leaves (if the leaves are big) 
  • By now the canvas must have dried.
  • Stamp the sentiment from the stamp set, “santa’s christmas” in the center of the canvas. Arrange and adhere the leaves around the sentiment.
  • On a scrap paper put double tape, peel the backing paper and put red fun foil.
  • Punch out holes using a hole punch from the red foiled paper using the cherry red fun foils. 
  • On another scrap paper draw a bell and fussy cut it.
  • Cover it with Glitzy gold fun foil in the same process. 
  • Arrange and adhere the tiny red dots as cherries around the leaves on the canvas. Adhere the bells on the top of the canvas using foam adhesive. 
  • There your holiday canvas is ready!
