Stamp of Approval Candy Cane Lane Release Day!

Welcome to the release day of Stamp of Approval Cane Cane Lane Collection
. Hurry and place your order!!! :)

And to know more details please visit (owner of the SOA)

Hello everyone! These are the cards I made with Candy Cane Lane Collection. You can check my previous cards made with this collection HERE.

Recently I moved to a new house and I have set up my crafting and filming area. The lighting wasn't that good but I will try to find a better solution for that very soon :)

So this is pretty simple card and nothing fancy at all. I inked up the Peppermint Stick Background stamp with Broken China Distress Ink and spritzed a little amount of water and placed the card stock on top of it. Next I die cut the dies from Merry Label dies, stamped and die cut the holly leaves and berries from Candy Cane Lane stamp set with Aquamarine Archival ink and Neon pink ink. And adhered everything together.

Here is the video for you, Enjoy! :)

And now here is the second one, kind of layered! I inked up the Peppermint Stick Background stamp with Black Soot Distress Ink and stamped it on a white card base. Next I pulled out the Candy Canes and hearts from Candy Cane Lane Set and stamped randomly with Mama Elephant Bubble Gum and Butter cup inks.

Finally die cut the Merry from Merry Label Dies and stamped the sentiment from Merry and Boughs set and adhered everything together.

And that's the cards for today. I hope you like them! The Stamp of Approval Candy Cane Lane Collection is full of Joy and Happiness. You will never regret buying it. :) Go ahead and place your order now! Thanks for stopping by. Take care and I will see you soon :)

Stamp Of Approval | Candy Cane Lane Collection Blog Hop

Hello everyone! Welcome to the Day 1 of Stamp of Approval  Candy Cane Lane Blog Hop. I'm so happy to have been part of this incredible and awesome event. If you have arrived here from Laurel Beard's blog then you are right on track and I'm your final stop for today! If you miss the hop start again from HERE

So make sure you sign up for the Waiting List so that you don’t miss out on your Stamp of Approval box!

So now let's move on the cards! I made three cards for this Blog Hop and I will make more with this Candy Cane Lane Collection! Cute Stuff!! Just a note, my cards are incomplete without splatters, Glitter and Sequins. And I'm sorry that I  won't be mentioning this in the every card description! I thought of keeping the description short and simple. The glitter, sequins and splatters will be the common thing! So let's get started!

This card features Merry and Bright Boughs Stamp set. I simply ink blended the background with Picked Raspberry Distress Ink and spritzed some water for that whimsical look. Then stamped the beautiful images Holly Leaves, Ornaments and Berries with Archival Jet Black ink, Versafine Sepia ink and Carnation Red ink respectively.

Next I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set with Archival Jet Black Ink and that finishes the first card!

The next card features Hip Holiday and Candy Cane Lane Stamp Sets. I water colored the striped background with Peacock Feathers Distress Ink. Then I stamped the images on another paper in Versafine Sepia and Carnation Red Ink and die cut them with co-coordinating dies!

Once all my die cut pieces are ready, I arranged and adhered them. Finally Stamped the sentiment from the Candy Cane Lane Collection with Archival Jet Black Ink. 

 Here comes the final one! And this card features Candy Cane Lane, Merry and Bright Boughs and Hip Holiday Stamp Sets. I took a water color paper and ink blended the background with Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink. Then stamped the branch/leaf thing with Versafine Sepia ink and Bird with Carnation Red Ink.

Next I fussy cut the leaves and die cut the bird with the coordinating die and adhered them on to the card panel. I added perfect pearls for that pearly look. Finally stamped the sentiment from Candy cane Lane with Archival Jet Black Ink. I adhered a silver glittery washi tape on the edge of the card base and foam mounted the water colored panel on top of it. :)

And that pretty much finishes the cards for today. I hope you like them and I hope you got inspired. Thank you so much for stopping by. Take care!
