Do-it-Yourself Tutorial

For our Holiday Cards this year, we’ve taken on the task of doing them ourselves. A while back, we discovered an interesting technique that allows you to create multicolored & layered stamped images. We can’t think of a more appropriate project on which to use it than these festive tree cards with twinkling lights. Happy Holidays!

Bailey Amon | Antiquaria

What is your favorite holiday tradition?

For Christmas, instead of giving bought gifts, each year we make gifts for the family. I love to brainstorm what we should give each year...last year it was biscotti, this year who knows?? What is the most memorable gift you’ve ever received? When I was a little girl, I loved dolls (not going to lie, I still love them a lot). One year, I received the most beautiful canopy doll bed for my American Girl doll Felicity. I still have it and hope to pass it on to a daughter some day.

What are you most looking forward to doing this holiday season?

Having recently gotten engaged, I am looking forward to sharing memories with two families that are about to become one.

Emma James | Antiquaria

What is your favorite holiday tradition?

Taking a beach walk on Christmas Day. Somehow it’s always sunny and warm on Christmas day in Santa Barbara. What is the most memorable gift you’ve ever received? The year my parents took us sailing in the Caribbean for 2 weeks as a Christmas gift, and getting engaged of course.

What are you most looking forward to doing this holiday season? Fires in the fireplace, family and time off!

What is your favorite holiday tradition?

Putting up my vintage Christmas decorations...and baking. What is the most memorable gift you’ve ever received? My engagement ring.

What are you most looking forward to doing this holiday season?

Baking and watching Christmas movies, especially ELF!

Elizabeth Lewis|The Nouveau Romantics

What is your favorite holiday tradition?

The best excuse to make all of the delicious baking my family has passed down over the years. What is the most memorable gift you’ve ever received? Getting engaged back in 2008 - while cliche, it still stands out! My now-husband and I decided to remake the holiday with our own traditions, and spent the holidays that year in NYC, just the two of us. After the big celebration, and calling our families with the news, we wandered around Central Park, just taking it all in. Best Christmas to date!

What are you most looking forward to doing this holiday season?

Finally getting to host Christmas in our new digs with my husband’s family.

Potato DIY Wrapping Paper: 1) Gather Materials:1 small russet potato (yields 2 stamps), plate or palette (to house paint), 1 tube gold gouache (opaque watercolor), paintbrush, wrapping paper, cut to desired size, masking tape and a paring knife. Prepare your work surface: tape your white or kraft wrapping paper to work surface so that it will lay flat. Squirt about a nickel size blob of paint into your palette and dilute with water (so that it is the consistency of thick cream). 2) With the paring knife, cut potato in half, carve the desired shape into the top of the potato (simple designs work best, we used geometric shapes). 3) Use the paintbrush to apply the paint to the potato design. The potato can hold a bit of moisture, so you may need to reapply often. 4) Place the stamp down on the paper and press to print. Repeat until you are satisfied with the overall design. Let dry completely. Wrap your gift and give to a loved one!!

Splatter & Glitter DIY Wrapping Paper: 1) Gather Materials: Toothbrush, metallic glitter, plate or palette (to house paint), 1 tube gold gouache (opaque watercolor), white (or kraft) wrapping paper, cut to desired size and masking tape. Prepare your work surface: tape your white or kraft wrapping paper to work surface so that it will lay flat. Squirt about a nickel size blob of paint into your palette and dilute with water (so that it is the consistency of thick cream). 2) Load the toothbrush with paint. Using your finger, splatter the paint all over the paper. You can also hit the brush on the back of the head to create larger splatters. 3) Sprinkle the paper with metallic glitter. We used 2 different shades of gold to create dimension. 4) Let dry completely. Shake off glitter and collect it for future use. Enjoy having glitter in your hair and on your face for weeks to come!! 41


Hand Stamped Christmas Cards: 1) Gather your materials so that you have them all at hand. Each step is best done in an “assembly line” style to account for drying times. 2) Ink stamp. For this card, we are using 4 different inks on the one stamp. Start with the hunter green and apply to the trees and names at the bottom. Then, ink the middle “Happy Holidays” with the Terra Cotta Pad. Using the Black, ink the lights at the top. Finish the inking process by coating randomly bits of the Olive to serve as highlights on the trees. 3) Center the stamp over your card (which should be placed on a hard surface). Press evenly on the stamp, as shown. 4) Lift the stamp directly up and let dry. If desired, you can stop here! 5) Apply glue to the lights (as many or as few as you like). 6) Sprinkle the red glitter over the glue. Slide excess glitter off the card. Let dry completely. 7) Using a soft brush, brush the remaining excess glitter from the card. 8) Send out with love to all your family and friends!
