How about a Christmas card? I used this week's sketch at Freshly Made Sketches for my starting point.
I wish you could see the glitter and shine but alas my photograph cannot capture
the beautiful shine. I glittered the snow laden tree, red ornaments and light
from the lantern using Stampin' Up dazzling diamonds and a Wink
of Stella glitter pen.
The image is from Stampin' Up "Home for Christmas".
I am also entering this at Merry Monday Christmas where their
Challenge #120 is "Skiis, Skates or Sleds".
I love the sled against the door and would love to have one
of my own to decorate for Christmas---found one
at our local vintage/antique shop, hmmmm!
I embossed some snowflakes with Stampendous white embossing powder
which I also used for the inside sentiment along with a few more stamped
I also was inspired by this beautiful picture at Festive Friday - doesn't
it just scream Christmas. I loved the pine trees and wreath and of
course the color palette.
I have a sweet spot for old trucks...wish I could have worked
that in as well, maybe another card?
I stamped the sled again,, coloring and fussy cutting so that
I could pop it up for some extra dimension.
I used foam dots to pop up the image as well after I cut around
it. I used re inkers as my coloring medium.
Hope you enjoyed my card half as much as I did making it and will
check out all of these great blogs and join me in starting
your own Christmas stash.
