What the Doodle Christmas Card

Hi there!  Today I opened up a new stamp for me, but I believe it was a set from last year during the holiday season. I didn't purchase it last year, but it looked like such a fun stamp set so I got it in a recent order from Papertrey Ink.  It's the What the Doodle Ornament stamp set and it's only $5.00! I would suggest getting the What the Doodle Ornament die too.  It actually cuts very beautifully. I made two cards today with it.  I had too much fun water coloring the ornaments.

1st Card:

2nd Card:

I stamped the ornaments and vines with Versamark ink onto water color paper and heat embossed them with Altenew Rose Gold Embossing Powder.  Then I used Kuretake Gansai Tambi Starry & Pearl Colors Sets to watercolor the images.  I want to say the water colored ornaments are so much shinier and prettier in person. After water coloring, I die cut the ornaments and vines.  I also used To the Point Edgers II dies to cut a white shimmer cardstock with the pointed edger and a gold cardstock with the scallop edger.  I layered the white shimmer cardstock on top of the gold scallop one and then stamped the sentiment, "Merry Christmas to You and Yours" on the bottom right side with Versamark Ink and also heat embossed it with Altenew Rose Gold Embossing Powder. The sentiment is from the Vintage Ornaments II stamp set.  I assembled all the pieces together.  I added the vines on the top of the white shimmer cardstock.  I threaded each ornament with gold thread and placed them on top and under the vines with the threads hanging down the back. On a white cardstock base, I applied double sided Scor-Tape on the top and added Martha Stewart Yellow Gold Glitter which adhered perfectly to the Scor-Tape. Then I placed the assembled cardstock onto the white card base. I still can't believe the beautiful ornament stamp set was only $5.00.  The ornaments are perfect for water coloring. I hope you enjoyed my cards for today.  Stop by again!
