I had so much fun making this card! I used one of my favorite Stampin' Up! stamp sets, Spirited Snowmen. I know you are all in shock that one of my favorite stamp sets has snowmen in it. LOL I made this card for Mr. Wonderful for our 30th anniversary in October. Can I tell all of you how hard it has been for me to not share this before now! I knew I wanted to use it in my Merry Christmas Monday series, so I have been patiently waiting until now.
I get so excited when I have a card that I really love and want to share it with everyone. It has been killing me to keep quiet and if you know me, that is very hard for me to do. But, I did it! Yay!
On this card I used a few different techniques. The first one is masking, which means that you are covering up certain areas of your projects so you can only work on a particular area. Such as the moon and the snowmen. For the moon I punched out a 1" circle (keep the paper you punched the circle out of ) and adhered it to the Whisper White paper with repositional tape where I wanted the moon to be.
I stamped the snowmen on the Whisper White paper and also stamped one on a scrap piece of paper. I cut out the one on the scrap piece of paper and adhered it over the image I stamped on my project piece of Whisper White paper. Again, I used the repositional tape to adhere it. Using this tape made it so much easier to take it off my project.
I then added the blue sky on the Whisper White paper using a combination of Balmy Blue and Night of Navy ink with sponges. When I was finished I took off the 1" circle and snowmen. Using the piece that I punched out the 1" circle from I adhered it so that the circles are lined up. The circle on the paper and the one piece of paper I punched it out of. I used Daffodil Delight and Crushed Curry to create the moon.
Another technique I used was with the White Frost Shimmer Paint. It is on the snow, snowmen and sporadically on the sky and moon. On the snow and snowmen I added Dazzling Diamonds glitter after I put on the shimmer paint. This gave the card a little bit of texture.
I used Stampin Write markers to color the snowmen and Whisper White Craft ink for the snow in the sky.
