I thank the Lord Jesus Christ for the talent He has bestowed on all of us!
I have been artistic all of my life and love experimenting with different mediums and techniques. This blog is my creative outlet to share my passion for cardmaking and papercrafting!
I did not have a current Stampin’ Up! snowman stamp so I chose one of my favorite snowmen images from the retired set Flaky Friends.I decided to create a card using colors that may not be considered a normal color palette for snowmen, but I had fun playing:-)
I first stamped the image on Whisper White with Basic Black Classic Ink and colored the image with the watercolor technique using the Blender Pen and the various Classic Ink Pads.
After watercoloring, I distressed the image with Soft Suede and Rich Razzleberry Classic Ink using Sponge Daubers and I also “spritzed” the card using a Soft Suede Marker and the Color Spritzer Tool.
I mounted the focal image onto Whisper White and again on Rich Razzleberry.I found a previous embossed piece of Crumb Cake and after layering the ribbon, added a few snowflakes with rhinestones.
After mounting all of the elements, I sprayed the entire card with Frost White Shimmer Paint spray. Since the snowflakes seemed to compete with the bow (and made the card looked too busy), I decided to modify the sketch slightly and did not add the bow.
