Holiday Home - Christmas Card

I love the new Holiday Home photopolymer stamp set! It's just so versatile! It is made up of 24 different stamps. You can create Christmas, Halloween, Thanksgiving and New Home cards and projects with it :o)

Some of the images are tiny, but they aren't difficult to cut out by hand. There are three different houses in the set and these have a coordinating Framelits set (Homemade Holiday). If you purchase the stamps and framelits together as a Bundle, you save 15% on the price!

I spotted this technique on Helene Legrand's blog this week and wanted to include it with my class this month.

You use one of our Decorative Masks and lay it over your card stock using it like a stencil. Use a sponge dauber to apply White Craft Ink to all the Dots. Remove the mask and let the ink dry before positioning the mask back over the White Craft dots. Offset the mask against these just slightly and then use another dauber to apply a different colour ink.

It's a fun technique that's a bit different and the effect you get is lovely :o)
