Bring Back Holiday Memories With 7 Cozy Christmas Swaps!

The Cozy Christmas stamp set is filled with vintage Christmas and winter images.    When I saw the snow-laden house, I immediately thought of,  "over the river and through the woods to grandmother's house we go".  The traditional images evoke memories of holiday magic!  Check out these fabulous Cozy Christmas swaps from fellow demonstrators (Founder's Circle, Control Freaks, DOstamperSTARS and Stamp Share for Leaders groups)

Cozy Christmas swaps cards shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #stampinup (Robin Anderson)

This stunning card was created by DOstamperSTAR, Robin Anderson.  With a little bit of masking, along with a brayer and ink, she's created a super cozy house nestled in a snow-filled landscape.  It's an obvious winner!

8 Swap Cards filled with Winter Wishes!

Picture this... a cabin in the woods, cozy with snow and filled with gear for enjoying the winter wonderland outside. You can evoke that same feeling on cards you create with Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog stamp set, Winter Wishes.

Winter Wishes Holiday Catalog swap cards shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #stampinup (Kay Kalthoff)

This is my favorite Winter Wishes swap and it was created by my friend and fellow demonstrator Kay Kalthoff.  The collage of images is just perfect and the touch of pine boughs around the edges frames it nicely.  Added texture of the In Color Striped Cotton Ribbon, Woodgrain TIEF and Snowflake Elements brings it all together beautifully.  I feel like I'm at a ski lodge!

Northern Lights Stamping Technique & Sleigh Ride Edgelits

The Northern Lights Stamping Technique has been on my list to share with my Stamping Club for quite some time and last month I finally got around to it.  Long Distance Club Members will get their packets this month.

Northern Lights Stamping Technique card shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #stampinup

Northern Lights Stamping Technique

  • Supplies: 
    • Stamping Sponges, various Ink pads (Daffodil Delight, Tempting Turquoise, Rich Razzleberry, Night of Navy)
  • Instructions:
    • On a panel of Whisper White, sponge ink colors to the top 3/4's of the panel starting lightest to darkest inks (Daffodil Delight, Tempting Turquoise, Rich Razzleberry). 
    • NOTE: Use more of a swipe and/or circular motion (vs pouncing). 
    • Depending on the size of your panel, you may want to add additional swipes of sponging
    • With a circular motion, sponge Night of Navy around the top and two sides of the panel filling in and around the rest of the top 3/4's area. Really press hard to get a deep "night" color.  Occasionally lightly swipe into/over the previous colors.  This is where the magic happens.  There is no right or wrong way.  It might take a few practice panels to get the look you want.  
    • Stamp tree image with black ink
    • Add finishing touches:
      • For a winter scene...stamp snowflakes with Whisper White craft ink over the sky and finish with a panel of snow and Sleigh Ride Edgelit at the bottom of the card.
      • For a summer scene...use a Gel Pen to add stars to the sky and sponge Old Olive to the bottom of the card for grass, or add a panel of grass and trees edgelit at the bottom of the card.
    • Every time you do it, it will look different.  Have fun experimenting!
    • See it in action with my How'd She DO That? video below

WATCH VIDEO: Northern Lights Stamping Technique 

 

Now I can cross the Northern Lights Stamping Technique off my list.  Check...tried it and love it!  Now it's your turn to give it a try.

Enjoy~Dawn O
