One Stamp Twinchie Christmas


Hello everyone Sylvia here, hope you are all joining in with today's "One Stamp" event.  I have been playing around with both sizes of the very versatile Christmas Corner.   Here are a Christmas card and gift tag showing you how to incorporate twinchies into your creations.   Not sure what a twinchie is - well it is a 2 inch by 2 inch mini piece of artwork, colour, stamp, emboss,add glitter and embellishments, you can do whaterver you want with them.  If you pop over to my blog you can see a tutorial for making this card.

The fabulous Christmas Corner comes in two sizes Large and Small and for this Christmas card and tag I used the small Christmas Corner stamp, just the right size for twinchies. 

The twinchies were cut out using white hammer card (a 2" x 2" square) and the Christmas Corner stamped and embossed with Oak House Studio Seafoam White embossing powder.  I coloured the twinchies with a mix of  pigment inks in orchid and powder blue.  I tried out my new Inkilicious duster brushes dabbing the ink pads onto my craft mat and picking the ink up on the brush, it worked well and I was pleased with the finished effect.


Using a white linen card blank I matted and layered the twinchies onto white linen and sky blue card placing the stamped images to form a pattern.  Finally I stamped the Christmas Blessings sentiment, again using a mix of orchid and powder blue pigment ink to match the colour on the twinchies.  A spare twinchie was added to white card to make a matching tag. 




Don't forget, come and join us throughout the day, we would love to see your creations. Pop back regularly for more inspiration from the design team.
