Tips for coloring the Cardinal Christmas Card featuring the Stampin' UP! Holiday Catalog Toile Tidings suite of papercrafting products! by Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

 

As I was stamping the Cardinal from the Toile Christmas stamp set, I decided to use my Blender Pen and Wink of Stella to blend the Real Red ink a bit, and then I wanted the face a bit darker, so I used my Dark Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends marker and colored over the red face to darken it.  I also used my Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends marker to color the beak.

After coloring the Cardinal I die cut him out with the matching Christmas Cardinal dies.  This Toile Christmas bundle is priced at 10% off, and is found on page 7 of the 2019 Holiday catalog or #152367 online.

My base card is a top fold Real Red cardstock base, with a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Toile Tidings designer paper on top.  I used a 3-1/2″ x 4-3/4″ piece of vellum over the Toile Tiding paper so that the die cut wreath and cardinal would stand out a little more.  The final touch was to add a die cut branch in Garden Green from the Christmas Cardinal dies.  It’s actually 2 small branches giving the appearance of a larger branch.

All of these supplies are available HERE in my online store, and check out all of the Toile Tidings suite products here.
