Hi Stampers, it’s Thursday, and another Happy Stampers Team Blog Hop. So glad you joined our color challenge this week!
I used the wonderful Wonderland stamp set from Stampin’ Up! to create my card for today. It is one of my favorite stamp sets from the Handmade for the Holidays catalog this year. It is not returning, so, you need to order it quickly before it retires forever. You have until January 4th, 2016, and then it is gone. (Or until supplies last)
The colors this week really helped to make this a fun Christmas Card. I sponged the Whisper White panel with Soft Sky and Night of Navy inks after I had masked off the moon image with a post it note punched out with the 1 1/2″ circle punch.
Then I stamped the Wonderland trees in Night of Navy-some full strength and some using the stamping off technique across the panel.The snowflakes were stamped in Versa Mark ink and dusted with Silver Embossing Powder and heated with my Heat Tool till shiny and dry. Then I did the same with the Santa and his sleigh image from the Cozy Christmas stamp set. The image panel was glued to a panel of Night of Navy cardstock with Multipurpose glue, then a length of Night of Navy 1/2″ seam binding ribbon attached to the bottom with a little tear and tape. Next, I glued this piece to a panel of Silver Foil with Multipurpose glue and popped it onto the Soft Sky card base with Dimensionals.
The inside images from Wonderland were stamped with Night of Navy ink and Versa Mark with Silver embossing powder. I chose the sentiment from the Flurry of Wishes stamp set and also used Versa Mark with Silver embossing powder and heat embossed it.
For the finishing touches, I added a banner of Whisper White stamped in Night of Navy, using the sentiment from the Wonderland stamp set, stamped the Snowflake element in Versa Mark ink, sprinkled it with more Silver embossing powder and heat embossed it. An Iced Rhinestone was added to the center of the snowflake. The snowflake is attached to the banner with glue from the Fine Tip glue pen and the whole banner popped onto the front with Dimensionals.
Card stock cuts are at the end of the post.
