Good morning and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! I made a Christmas card with the pretty Stampin’ Up! Snow Wonder cling stamp set and coordinating Snow Time dies for today. I combined them with the beautiful Peaceful Place specialty designer series paper. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.
We have a sketch challenge this week and I kind of followed it:
I adhered a panel of Peaceful Place designer series paper to a Cherry Cobbler mat and adhered it to the front of a Smoky Slate card base with dimensionals. I stamped two sets of the trees from the Stampin’ Up! Snow Wonder cling stamp set in Versamark ink on Basic Gray card stock. I sprinkled them with white embossing powder and shook off the excess. I heat set the powder with my heat tool and cut the trees out with the coordinating die from the Snow Time dies. I adhered the trees to the card front with glue dots.
I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Snow Wonder stamp set in Versamark ink on Smoky Slate and sprinkled it with white embossing powder. I shook off the excess and heat set the powder with my heat tool. I cut it out with the large label from the Snow Time dies and adhered it to the card front with dimensionals.
I stamped the snowman from the Stampin’ Up! Snow Wonder stamp set in Versamark ink on Basic White and sprinkled in silver embossing powder. I shook off the excess and heat set the powder with my heat tool until it was shiny. I cut it out with the coordinating die and colored it with Stampin’ Blends. I used Evening Evergreen and Cherry Cobbler on the holly, Pumpkin Pie on the carrot and Basic Black on the eyes, mouth and buttons. I adhered it to the card front with dimensionals and adhered some subtle shimmer sequins around the card with glue dots – I love these pretty sequins!
It’s really hard to see, but I embossed the upper corner of a Basic White panel with the snowflake corner die from the Snow Time dies and stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Snow Wonder stamp set in Smoky Slate. I adhered the panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat and adhered it to the inside of the card.
The snowman from the Stampin’ Up! Snow Wonder stamp set is so sweet and is wonderful for Christmas card. The Peaceful Place specialty designer series paper is so elegant with silver foil touches and makes sophisticated monochromatic Christmas cards.
