I am Andreea Radulescu and I am truly honored to be guest designing for WPlus9 today. I was so excited with the latest release and for today’s card I used two of the Christmas stamp sets along with their companion dies. A full supply list along with links can be find at the end of this post.

I started by stamping the cute images from the Santa’s Reindeer stamp set onto a piece of watercolor cardstock and used my watercolor markers to color everything in. Once all was colored I used the matching dies to trim everything out. I find that this set is just so cute and having the matching dies made the creative process so quick and easy.
For my background I used a black and a dark blue Distress Ink that blended so beautifully onto my watercolor cardstock.
To create the sentiment for this card, I used the Be Merry stamp set and white heat embossed the gorgeous banner from the set. This is another great stamp to have as it can be used in so many ways and I will for sure use it to mass produce my cards for this year’s Christmas. Being such a large stamp it takes so little to fill in a card and you can have your cards made within minutes.
As I love adding details to my cards, I used some glittery glue to cover the white areas on my colored elements, brushed a bit of clear Wink of Stella on top for extra shimmer and glued several clear sequins here and there. To add more interest, I adhered the sentiment banner with a double layer of dimensional foam and tucked behind the reindeers and the cute little Santa using one layer of foam only.
For my night sky I used some white paint that I splattered it on with a small brush. In the end, I adhered my panel onto a white card base and my card was all done!
I hope you enjoyed my project and I thank you all for having me on the WPlus9 blog today!
