Card Monday-Christmas Card 17

20 Nov

Today’s card features the new snowmen stamp from Mama Elephant, and it has to be one of my favorites.
Supplies: Stamp: Mama Elephant; Celebrate Die, Stencil: My Favorite Things; Stitched Rectangle Die: Lawn Fawn; Markers: Spectrum Noir, Sharpie, Copic; Embossing Paste: Wendy Vecchi; Distress Inks: Tim Holtz; Other: Signo White Gel Pen, Wink of Stella, Red Card Stock
I tried some new things on this card that I had never done before, and I LOVE the results!  I did some ink blending with my Distress Inks, and was pleasantly surprised to see just how easy it was!
I also stenciled on some white embossing paste using a snow stencil, and I die cut my sentiment four times with white, and once with red, and glued them all together for some dimension on my sentiment.
I colored my snowmen, and die cut them with the same rectangle die as my background so that they fit neatly together, and then I just trimmed around the top of my snowmen using scissors.
For final touches, I added white gel pen, and lots of Wink of Stella-to the snowmen, as well as the sentiment.
I LOVE how this turned out SO much!!
And, I am pretty please that I was able to try some new techniques and have them turn out so well.  Must be all the crafty YouTube videos I watch.  🙂
Stayed tuned tomorrow as I made two more versions of this card that I will be sharing.
Until then, have a great day!
