SIP Sketch Challenge #58

Good morning! I hope you all are surviving this blistering heat we have been having. We have a fun new challenge for you over at Stamp Ink Paper this week.  Here is your inspiration

SIP Sketch Challenge #58

To help me survive the heat I decided on a Christmas card hehe

Snow Place

I started with a Baha Breeze card base.  The next layer is a piece of Whisper White embossed with the SU Woodland Texture EF with a piece of Lost Lagoon striped cotton ribbon tied around the middle section.  Next I took a Manila tag and tea dyed it, after it was dry I took a white circle and adhered it to the bottom and then trimmed the sides and bottom to match the tag.  I then punched out a oval out of white glitter paper and added on the white space.  Now using the SU set Snow Place I stamped the penguin with momento black ink and the scarf with Real Red ink and then die cut them both using the matching framelits.  I colored in the Penguins nose and feet and then attached the scarf and then added him to my tag.  I added a strip of sequins to the tag hole and then added the tag to my card using dimensionals. I just recently received my new Nuvo crystal drops and using the white one to create snow drops on the trees and tag. I absolutely love my Nuvo’s!! To finish I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set with momento black ink onto white cardstock and then cut the words out individually and adhered then to a strip of Baja Breeze and added that to the bottom of my card.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Until next time

Stay Cool and Happy Crafting 🙂

Good Morning and welcome to my blog.  Today I am over at the OSAT Holidays Blog Hop.  This month we are sharing our Christmas creations. Here is my card

  • Stampin Up Woodland Christmas
  • I got the idea for this card from a very talented fellow crafter Lisa Jones. For my card I choose to use the new Stampin Up Woodlands embossing folder. Which may be my all time favorite folder ever!!! I started with a Night of Navy card base. The next layer is a piece of Whisper White embossed with the Simply Falling folder. The top layer I started with a piece of Whisper White and before embossing it with the Woodlands folder I did the following to the folder : first I punched a 1 inch circle and taped it on the folder where I wanted the moon to be, and then I used my brayer and Marina Mist ink and went over the side of the folder that has the trees recessed (Tina this is another reason why you need this ink!!). Next I used Mossy Meadow ink and the trees stamp from the set Wonderland and stamped the trees randomly on the bottom side. Next I removed the circle mask I had taped down and put my cardstock in the folder and embossed. After removing the paper I used Baked Brown Sugar ink and my brayer and went over the trees.  Next I outlined the trees with a black Sharpie pen. I learned this technique from my very talented and creative friend Sharon White!! I used a white gel pen to give the look of falling snow. Next I attached this piece to the embossed white piece and added the strip of white grosgrain ribbon and then attached those pieces to the card base. I stamped the sentiment from Cozy Christmas in versamark on the navy cardstock and heat embossed in white and then fussy cut and popped it on the ribbon. Here is a closer pic of my card
