Holiday Word card featuring The Stamp Market by Julie Ebersole

Hello, everybody!  Today I’m making some DIY glitter stickers and working with a lovely holiday stamp and die set by the Stamp Market called Merry Days—the imagery is so fun and festive.  Brace y’self, cuz it’s gonna get sparkly all up in here!

  • This method of shading with dye inks directly on the stamp works best with a great stamp positioning tool like the MISTI.
  • Bold/solid images like those in the Merry Days set work particularly well for this glitter technique.
  • The Xyron X Sticker Maker is handy for coating small die cut shapes (whether it’s the front or the back side) with all over adhesive.
  • If you like dipping items in glitter, try storing several jars of glitter into in one larger container; it’s so much easier to dip batches of items at the same time.
  • A textured card base can add interest to a project without over-taking the focal image.

    I love this card design! And there is no such thing as too many sentiment sets in MY stash. 😀

    Julie, your card style is so “yours” and is always easy to identify. This is such a precious card.
