peppermint kisses

Hello my fabulous friends!

Are you looking for a quick last minute holiday card? 

 Maybe I can help...
This card is super quick and easy to put together!

Paper: Strathmore Bristol Smooth; Paper Studio Glitter Glam
Stamps: Inkon3 Bad and Boujee
Stencil: LDRS Creative Playful Patterns
Other: ribbon, candy cane

Start by taping a striped stencil down to the lower portion of your card front, then using your favorite ink blending tool to apply some Marilyn Red Atelier ink through the stencil.

Next, stamp the lips from Bad and Boujee using Marilyn Red ink. To get a darker red, use a MISTI and stamp the lips twice. As long as your paper doesn't move, you will still have a crisp image, just a darker color.

Use a paintbrush to apply some Liquid Pixie Dust over the lips to give them a frosty sparkle.

After the Liquid Pixie Dust dries, stamp 'kisses' using Blackout ink.

Add a hand written 'peppermint' to finish the sentiment.

If you have matching ribbon, you can skip this step, but I didn't have any ribbon the right color, so here's a quick tip for you if you need it..

Place some white ribbon in a sandwich bag... Spritz in a little water using a spray bottle, than add a drop or two of Atelier reinker... Smoosh it around to cover the ribbon.  Remove the ribbon from the bag and pat extra ink off with a paper towel. Carefully heat dry (or air dry) the ribbon. Now you have custom colored ribbon to match your stamped image! 
*note: If you don't want colored hands, put on a pair of gloves to remove the wet ribbon. 

Tie your ribbon around the top of the card front.. Then glue that onto a silver glitter card base.

Finish it off by adding a candy cane and a bow!

How amazing do those lips look!?!?!

I hope your holidays are sweet and full of sparkle!

See you soon!
