Hey everyone! Happy Friday!
Today I’m sharing a Winter/Christmas card that I really love!
What do you think? I couldn’t be more thrilled with how this turned out!! AND I’ve done something super clever with it! Can you guess what?
I started with a Blue Shimmer card base and stamped the Merry And Bright Chalk stamp from Impress Rubber Stamps using Versamark ink. Blame Julie Ebersole for my purchasing this awesome stamp, lol! I heat embossed it with WOW! Opaque Bright White embossing powder.
Next – the clever part! I wanted the sentiment to look like it was encased in ice, and I’d had an idea that I had wanted to execute ever since I saw the stamp I used!
Would you have guessed that this was a Halloween stamp?!
I know. Mind. Blown. lol!
I used the Spooky Tree Backgrounder stamp from Waltzingmouse Stamps to create the look of cracked ice, stamping it onto vellum using Versamark ink. I then coated it with my own custom made glittered embossing powder, mixing WOW! Clear Semi Dull embossing powder with some Martha Stewart glitters. I heat embossed the vellum then adhered it to the front of my card using Scor-Tape. Isn’t the result *amazing*?!
I love it when a plan comes together, lol!
Well that’s it from me for now, but please do tune in later today for me to announce the winner of this month’s StampSpotlight! In the meantime I would love it if you left some love before you went on your way! Thanks so much for stopping by!
