Stamping with the Stars #DOswts391 Christmas in July Inspiration #dostamperSTARS #dostampinup #stampinup

I've been itchin' to use the new Decorated with Happiness Bundle and today was the perfect opportunity to showcase it.  When I first saw the Jul-Dec 2022 Mini Catalog, I was immediately drawn to it.  And...it did not disappoint!

DOstamping Tips:

  • All of the ornament "outline" images were stamped with Real Red ink, on Basic White cardstock.
  • The key to this card is the Stamping Off Technique
    • Ink up the "fill-in" images, then stamp once (or twice) on a scratch paper, then stamp inside outline images to create a lighter version of the ink color.
  • Have fun playing  around with a variety of coordinating colors!
  • And...don't forget the embellishments.  The new Festive Pearls were the perfect touch (includes Real Red, Silver, Gold & Soft Succulent).


I did this card for a swap with my DOstamperSTARS Team.  One of the many activities we do throughout the year.  I did wafflle between which direction to go with, portrait or landscape.
