Styled Woodland Christmas Cards

I took a class a few years ago, where we made a card similar to this one, since I had the stamps and stencil, I decided to make a few of these for Christmas this year.


I used the following to make the card:

  • Tim Holtz Holiday Knit Stencil
  • Tim Holtz Styled Woodlands Stamp set
  • Various Distress Markers
  • Distress Ink - Tea Dye
  • Ribbon
To make the card, I colored one of the wreath stamps with the Distress Markers.  The stamp was then spritzed with water, and stamped on a piece of watercolor paper.  The stencil was then placed over the image and distress ink added.  The sentiment was added to the middle of the wreath. The panel was then cut to size, ribbon added and added to the card base to complete the card.

Stampendous Train Post Card

A while back, I got the Stampendous Train Post Card stamp, and finally had a chance to use it!  Here is the card I made with it.  While its a Christmas themed card, I didn't color it that way - looks more like summer!


I used the following to make the card:


  • Stampendous - Train Post Card stamp
  • Various Copic Markers
  • Distress Ink - Tea Dye


This was a simple card to make.  The image was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, then colored with Copic markers.  I used the Distress Ink on the edges to give the image a bit of an aged look.  The image was then trimmed and added to a card base to complete the card.

They were then fussy cut and added to the snowflake panel.  The panel was added to a green card base to complete the card.

  • Wink of Stella - clear
  • Enamel Accents Classic Cherry
  • Nuvo Crystal Drops Brilliant Gold
