Hello crafty friends and welcome to So Suzy Stamps inspiration post. Today I created a Mix and Match for Christmas project. It is a card that I made using several stamps from our most recent collection but before I share how to make this, take a look at my card:

These are bold graphic designs that are perfect for stamping beautiful one layer cards. Of course you can also use these images to create little scenes, but since I love to create my own stamped pattern this is what I went with when I was making my project.

I started working on this project by picking out images I wanted to use to create my pattern. I didn’t use every small image from the release, for instance I only used the words Peace, Joy and Noel; the Buck Small and Doe Small; the Snowflakes small, the pinecone small; the Gift Pile and Santa Sleigh Small. Next, I created my initial arrangement and picked out several colors of ink.

 

Whenever stamping patterns like this it is best to pick one or two bright/bold colors and one or two softer colors; you don’t have to stamp every image using a bright red or bright green because then your pattern might become too busy.

I went with Gumble Green, Real Red, Soft Suede and Pool Party Classic Ink colors from Stampin Up.

I stamped my images one by one using a MISTI and double stamped everything for perfect ink coverage. While I started stamping my pattern by having the images in the correct orientation (upright), I later rotated many of them 90 and 180 degrees to best fill in the space I had left on my card front.

To create a sentiment that would stand out I heat embossed “Jolly Surprises” onto Real Read Card Stock in white embossing powder, trimmed sentiments into strips and foam mounted onto my card. Lastly, I added several droplets using Clear irRESISTible from Imagine.
