Create & Design Your Own Cards for the Holidays

Hello everyone, it’s Mona Toth here, and I am super excited to share my guest design post featuring the brand-new Sweet Stamp Shop release! Winter is my favorite season, and I absolutely fell in love with the Marshmallow Holiday stamp set from Sweet Stamp Shop – so I made two cards using the stamp set, as well as a fun bonus card! 🙂 The stamp set is super easy to use, and the images and colors were so cute and just perfect for the holiday season.

The first thing I did on the first project was ink blending. I used the Tumbled Glass and Frayed Burlap Distress Oxide inks.

The next step was stamping, coloring, and fussy-cutting. I added some wording to the background and used a bunch of tiny Marshmallows from this set, simply because they are so cute! For these colors, I used my Copic Markers (colors: W1, W3, W5, R20, BG0000). The last step was adhering the images to my card.

I used the Chocolate Mug from the same stamp set for my second card, which featured fun party marshmallows and vibrant pink coloring. I can’t get enough of this set: serious cuteness overload, especially for the holidays!

First, I crafted the background using Washi Tape and Candied Apple Distress Oxide ink. I then cut a 3,5×4,75″ red cardstock, heat-embossed the sentiment using White Embossing powder, and sprayed it with White Ink.

The next step was stamping and coloring using my Copic Markers  (colors: R24, R27, R29, 0, W1, W3, W5, W7 and E55, E57, E44, E42 for the cocoa). For the final touches, I made highlights with Signo Uniball White Pigment Pen and used Glossy Accents for the clear icing. Finally, I adhered everything together, and just like that, the card was finished! These stamp sets make DIY projects a breeze, and it’s fun to customize each one using my own extra flair.

As promised I am going to show you a bonus card that I made with the super cute Flying Squirrel stamp set. I think this is a perfect fall-themed stamp – I love the colors and the fun design, especially the falling leaves!

I used Squeezed Lemonade, Wild Honey, and Seedless Preserves Distress Oxide Inks for this particular card, and Copic Markers for the coloring: Squirrel – W01, W03, E42, E43, Y23, Y26, Y28, E55, E57 E59 R20; Leaves – Y11, Y13, Y15, Y19, YR17 RV52, RV55, RV66. The Squirrels are super adorable, and they make a fabulous birthday card!

Thank you for reading my post! I hope my creations have inspired you to make your own fun holiday cards at home. I am so thankful for this amazing opportunity to be a guest!  If you like my creations please feel free to follow me on Instagram. 🙂
