Today’s “First Day of Christmas” card was inspired by the ornament I created seen in this post.
Two branches, one pear (masking branch), pear leaves and sentiment (Rockin’ Red – Catherine Pooler ink) were stamped (using color recipe links below) on Solar White Classic Crest cardstock (Neenah).
The quail, two pears, and two more leaves were cut out with Solar White Classic Crest cardstock (Neenah) and the coordinating KSS SVG cut files and then stamped and added to the card with pop dots. Card edge was inked with Rich Cocoa (Memento).
The base of the card is the metallic cardstock – Mars from Stardream.
Color Recipes for the stamp sets used in either card or ornament:
3 pineapples from Aloha!(the pineapples in my photo were stamped and then fussy cut-out. Using an SVG Cut file would be much easier.
Stamp 1 large and 3 small Monstera Leaves directly on wood disk (using Catherine Pooler Inks) from Aloha!
Step #3 – Spruce
Step #2 Grass Skirt
Step #1 – Lime Rickey
Brush Clear – Wink of Stella to all 3 pineapples.
Adhere pineapples over leaves with pop dots.
My second ornament was completely stamped directly on the wooden disk.
First I stamped the palm (see color recipe link below). Then masking the trunk of the palm tree and adding a strip of purple masking tape to determine the horizon line, I stamped the lower portion of the water from the set, Cabin by the Lake. This gives the illusion of a sandy beach.
Step #2 – Juniper Mist (Catherine Pooler)
Step #1 – Stone Blue (Catherine Pooler)
Seagull was stamped from the set, Lighthouse.
Step #1 – Frost White (Color Box)
Step #2 – Gray Flannel (Memento)
Step #3 – Onyx Black (VersaFine)
Ornament: Rockin’n Red (Catherine Pooler)
Star: Galaxy Gold (Brilliance)
Sentiment: Rockin’n Red (Catherine Pooler)
Brush Clear Wink of Stella glitter pen was used on the highlights in the water, the”sandy beach” area, and star.
Add Christmas Red Stickles to the red ornament hanging from the palm tree.
