Today we are welcoming back frequent guest Ushii! This time around, Ushii is getting us ready for the holidays with a few Christmas projects! The phrase Christmas in July is a popular one and with creations from Ushii, there is amazing inspiration guaranteed!
I’m Ushii and I’m super excited to be a guest designer for Your Next Stamp!
Who am I? A crafty girl, trying to find a happiness in every moment of life I live in Poland and I’m an architect. As far as I remember, I’ve always loved to design, create, alter, paint, sew something… Ten years ago I discovered scrapbooking and cardmaking with all the colorful papers, embellishments and cute stamps – and I fell in love! I usually have five ideas at the same time, I love to try new techniques, new things and visit new places … and besides, I love good company, good wine and good books
My favorite tools are Copics, Zig Clean Color markers and watercolors, as I love coloring stamps! But I like funny dies and stencils a lot, too. My projects are usually sweet, colorful and joyful.
There’s no place like home for the holidays!
This card is a combination of a few stamp sets. I used the beautiful door stamp from the Deck the Halls set and created a snowy scene with some stamps from two other sets. The snowman is from the Santa Express Train Carts set and the birds are from the Holiday Wreaths set. I must admit I love these birds and use them a lot in non-Christmas cards!
I stamped everything with a very light ink and colored it with the no-line technique. To add dimension, I adhered some parts of the door and other card elements with 3d foam tape. At the end, I stamped the sentiment from the Home for the Holidays set and added white paint splatters to make my card look like winter with snow.
Stop back tomorrow for more Christmas inspiration from Ushii.
