This week, the Therm O Web team has the great pleasure of joining up with our friends at Art Impressions! Art Impressions has just released five fabulous new sets for Christmas that I know you are going to adore. And I’m so excited to be able to offer you a chance to win the entire new collection. Keep reading below for more details on that!
I made two holiday cards with the adorable Southwest Christmas stamp set, and I’d love to share the first with you here today. For this card, I decided to go with a rather nontraditional color palette to really embrace the southwestern style of this fun set. So I went with some traditional candy stripe red, but then paired it with the warm tones of natural cocoa brown.
The patterned paper is from Authentique’s Festive collection, and the brown cardstock and ink are Stampin’Up’s old Close to Cocoa. I stamped the cowboy Santa image onto watercolor paper, and colored him with Zig Clean Color markers. And then I die cut nesting circles for my Santa frame. The background was stamped repeatedly with adorable chili peppers from the set to add a little spice to the design.
The sentiment is included in the Southwest Christmas set. I stamped it onto a small watercolor strip using the matching cocoa ink, and popped the banner onto the bottom of the image using a bit of foam tape. Clear Wink of Stella glitter pen was added to Santa’s knapsack and vest, and the bows on the chili peppers, as well. And for a final touch, I added sequins from 28 Lilac Lane.
