A Cup Of Good Cheer!

A Cup Of Good Cheer!

Hello Simple Stories fans! Nicole here today to share a fun holiday project with you using the Holly Jolly collection! 

For this project, I was inspired by the Holly Jolly clear stamps and wanted to find a fun way to incorporate them into my scrapbook page design. I chose to stamp some images and watercolor them in two different ways. First I stamped the HOHOHO sentiment repeatedly to some cardstock with red ink. Once it was completely dry and set, I smooshed some red watercolor ink over the entire stamped area and set it aside to dry. Once totally dry, I punched 1" circles to create my own patterned paper!

You can see that I also punched various patterned papers from the 6x8 patterned paper pad from the Holly Jolly collection too. I mixed the stamped patterns in with the patterned paper and laid them out into a simple grid pattern on my layout.

You can see I also stamped some hearts from the clear stamps and used the co-ordinating dies to cut them out, adding them to the centers of a few of the paper circles.

I also stamped some cute trees from the clear stamps and watercolored them with some green and then set aside to try - to be fussy cut out to use as embellishments for my project. I finished the project with a title using some diecuts and mini stamps too!
