STAMPtember Blog Party!
For my first card I pulled out some very old patterned paper call Santa's List by Teresa Collins. I now only have two sheets of this sweet paper left. I stamped the ornament on one piece and trimmed it out in full. I then stamped just the bow portion of the stamp twice on a different patterned paper. I trimmed out the full bow from one and then just part of the bow on the second. There were then layered on the main image. There are cute little candy stamps in the set and I stamped those on the patterned paper and then colored them with Polychromos pencils in red and white. I added the strings and then the sentiment. The main ornament was popped up with thin foam squares. I finished off the card with the little red twine bows.
For this card I used the snowman ornament. I stamped him on watercolor cardstock with VersaFine CLAIR Nocturne ink and then colored him very simply with a light gray and light blue watercolor. The nose was colored in orange, the cheeks pink and then I added some black to the eyes. I also used the gray for the ornament topper and then added white shimmer watercolor over the top. After everything was dry I trimmed it out. The background was created by using the SSS Delicate Snowflake stencil and Tumbled Glass distress oxide on white cardstock. I then added Ranger clear embossing paste over the top for a shiny finish. Once the embossing paste was dry I added a little bit of the Tumbled Glass around the edges of my die cut rectangle. I die cut a medium blue cardstock for a mat and added the snowflake panel to that. I popped up the ornament with thin foam squares. The sentiment was heat embossed in silver on vellum and then added to the panel using Bearly Art glue. I finished with a little bow that I created using the little bow from the Flower Bundle die set.
