Merry Christmas- Three Challenges in One!

Hi Stampers!!

I hope you will have a chance to visit all of the above sites to check out the wonderful Design Team samples as well as their fantastic galleries!

To create this card:

Using the Lost Lagoon and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Write markers, scribble some color onto a craft sheet or plastic bag.  Spritz with water and lay a piece of Whisper White into the moistened ink, lift and allow the paper to dry.

Once this layer dried, it appeared as though the Smoky Slate was too watered down so I added Ranger® Tim Holtz® Weathered Wood Distress Stain and spritzed it with water.    

Once the panel was dry, stamp the snowflakes from the retired set, Patterned Pines using Smoky Slate and Lost Lagoon Classic Ink.

Add a bit of splattering using the Color Spritzer Tool and the Lost Lagoon and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Write markers.

De-static the panel using the Embossing Buddy® and stamp the snowflake image using Versamark™ ink.  Add Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat with the Heat Tool.
Allow the embossing to cool and add Ranger® Tim Holtz® Picket Fence Distress Stain over the snowflakes and blot with a paper towel.   Add a few “snowflakes” using a Faber-Castell White Pitt Pen, trim the panel and mount onto a piece of Lost Lagoon cardstock.

Add this panel to the Whisper White layer and adhere the 3/8” Lost Lagoon Taffeta Ribbon strip and triple bow. 
De-static the lower portion of the card front using the Embossing Buddy® and stamp the sentiment using Versamark™ ink.  Add Silver Stampin’ Emboss® Embossing Powder and heat with the Heat Tool.

Mount the entire panel onto a piece of Lost Lagoon cardstock, trim and mount onto a piece of Smoky Slate cardstock, trim again and mount onto the Whisper White card base.

Add the 3/8” Lost Lagoon Triple Ribbon Taffeta bow along with the retired Frosted Finishes Embellishment to the center. 

Adhere a few Rhinestones to the snowflake centers and around the sentiment to finish off the card.
