I recently spent a day making Christmas Card toppers at a workshop with Maria Moorhouse from Claritystamp. She had many of her own ideas and designs to choose from, some of which I copied, but the ones I am sharing here are all my own ideas using Claritystamp stencils and stamps. We used the large sheets of Claritystamp stencil card (8.5" x 11") and I made 4 toppers from each sheet. The square toppers measure 5.5" x 5.5" and the smaller offcuts 5.5" x 3". These will all be matted up and added to suitably sized card blanks eventually.
The first topper uses the Clarity oval aperture stencil with the Birch Trees stencil. The medium moon mask was laid onto the card, the two stencils overlaid and held in place, then Tumbled Glass Distress ink brushed through them using a Clarity stencil brush. The moon mask was then removed, the stencils laid back in place and further ink added. The NDC 121 Holly Deer stamp was added in Sepia Versafine ink and the Noel from Word Chain 14 added in the same ink.
