Merry Christmas- Garden Snowmen Fun!
I had a chance to play in my craft area last night and pulled out a few of my favorite retired Stampin’ Up! snowmen sets to have some marker fun :-)
The first card was created was a Clean and Simple card using the CQC270 ColourQ Challenge along with The Card Concept #24 Snowman (Make A Tag) Challenge and the Splitcoaststampers WT507 "Easy Does It" Challenge.
If you have not done so, I hope you will find time to visit all of the challenge sites- inspiration from all!
To create this card:
Ink the snowman image using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink onto Whisper White cardstock.
Use Stampin’ Write Markers to color the image- Calypso Coral, Island Indigo, Pistachio Pudding and Blush Blossom (retired). Use the Basic Black marker to color the buttons and branches.
Apply Two-Way Glue to apply Dazzling Diamonds Glitter to the snowman and ground area.
Trim the panel and create the tag using the Scallop Topper Tag Punch. Use the Project Life® 0.3” Corner Rounder to round the corners.
Cut another tag a bit larger using Island Indigo cardstock, creating the tag topper and round the corners.
Layer the focal image onto the Island Indigo tag, add the 3/8” Calypso Coral Seam Binding Ribbon and tie with Natural Linen Thread. Fray the ends of the ribbon to mimic the scarf on the snowman :-)
Use the Big Shot™ to emboss a piece of Whisper White cardstock using the Northern Flurry Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder, trim and mount onto a piece of Island Indigo cardstock, trim and mount onto the Island Indigo card front.
Ink the sentiment in the corner using Calypso Coral Classic Ink and mount the focal image using Stampin’ Dimensionals® to finish off the card.
