Large Christmas Tutorial

First stamp the outline the snowflake with Versafine Deep Lagoon.

Then ink the solid snowflake with Memento Summer Sky ink. It is exactly the same size as the outline one, but the solid one being stamped on a lighter color means that the darker outline shows off.

And stamp it inside the snowflake outline.

Here you can see the outline on the left and the stamped outline with the solid one inside, so you can appreciate the difference between the effects. The outline one is ideal to be coloured in with Copics, Promarkers or any other coloring method.

This is the snowflake inside of a 1 1/4" circle punch.

This is how it fits on a 1 3/8".

This is how it fits on a 1 1/2".

Stamp the large New Year on white smooth card. Remember, almost all my stamp designs are very fine detail so the smoothest card is always going to be the best option for stamping them.

This is what it looks like once stamped.

The image stamped punches out perfectly using a 2" circle punch. The other large circle stamp is identical in size, so it can be cut with the same punch, the only thing that changes is the sentiment, Happy Christmas instead of Happy New Year.

And this is a few options that this set offers.

Paula Thanks for the tutorial. For those of us who might not have a huge punch collection or even no nestablities!!!!! it's worth pointing out that I do use a compass cutter to get the size of circle I want (mine has a little shield for the point) and then stamp onto it. That's the beauty of clear stamps. Absolutely love your blog and your stamps. Thanks Paula. Hugs BettyXXX
