I’m excited about the new Wendy Vecchi Make Art release from Ranger Ink that just came out today! So many possibilities for holiday cards, tags, and decorations. But the stamps are versatile enough that some “everyday” cards will be easy to make with them.

I got my hands on the new products today and immediately made a simple card. I started out with the background using Wendy Vecchi’s archival ink and alcohol technique. I used Cornflower Blue and Lead Green re-inkers and rubbing alcohol and once dry, I stamped The background stamp in Sap Green.

To create the wreath, I stamped Wendy’s wreath stamp in English Ivy and then turned it 90 degrees or so and stamped it again in Fern Green. I trimmed it out and then blended Prickly Pear ink over the whole image. Meanwhile, I stamped the branches across the center of my background. I adhered the die-cut wreath onto the background. Once the wreath was completely dry, I stamped the sentiment and then added the Liquid Pearls “berries” on the wreath and the branches. I then popped up the wreath with dimensional adhesive and added a red raffia bow. I trimmed the card with red and dark green cardstock strips.

Thanks for stopping by today (Hi, Mom!). I do regularly post on Instagram (@penguinpapers) if you want to see what I’m up to. I still plan to post here when I can–especially cards!
