Today I am sharing another fun Mixed Media Christmas card using a few Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps- Home for the Holidays, Texture Tiles 1, Texture Tiles 4 and Scene Silhouettes: Trees.
For the layout I used the #503 Mojo Sketch Challenge and am also linking this card to the Word Art Wednesday #362-#36.3 ”Anything Goes” Challenge and the Hand StampedSentiments #303 Inspiration Challenge (I was inspired by the snow scenes and the green colors).
If you have not had a chance to visit the above challenge sites or the SNSS Blog/FB Page yet, I encourage you to do so- gorgeous inspiration from all!
Also, don’t forget- Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps is continuing to celebrate their 11th birthday this month! This week’s special is 11% off Sentiment, Fall and Christmas stamps plus with any net order of $60 (US), you can choose one of four top selling stamp sets as your November Stamp of the Month-hurry, though- both offers are good through November 30th!
To create this card:
1). De-static a piece of white cardstock with an embossing powder tool, stamp the truck image and sentiment from Home for the Holidays with Versafine™ Onyx Black Ink, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool. Watercolor the truck with distress ink along with water-based markers and die cut the sentiment with a stitched circle die. Fussy-cut the truck image and set aside.
2). Die cut a white circle with a stitched circle die for the scene behind the truck, mask the snow bank area, ink the pine tree image from Scene Silhouettes: Trees with olive ink, stamp along the edge to create the tree line, remove the mask and use a blue ink to sponge a bit of shadows on the snow. Watercolor the sky area with berry ink, die cut with a stitched circle die and mount onto a circle die cut from gray cardstock and then again onto dark blue cardstock. Add a bit of splatter with the splatter image from Texture Tiles 1 using dark blue ink and use a Sharpie® Extra Fine White Paint Pen to add snowflakes to the scene.
3). On a 4” x 5 ¼” piece of white cardstock, ink the grid image from Texture Tiles 1 with dark blue ink and stamp repeatedly to create the pattern. Lightly spritz with water, mount onto gray cardstock, trim and mount onto dark blue cardstock.
4). Create the plaid horizontal strip using white cardstock and stamping the plaid image from Texture Tiles 4 first with dark blue ink, then again with olive ink. Die cut the horizontal strip with a stitched die and create the corners by hand. Add the corners and insert a silver brad in the center of each.
5). Layer the blue hemp twine, wrapping the ends behind the panel and mount the card front onto the white card base.
6). Add the die cut/layered circles onto the card front dimensional foam, mount the bow with the green button and add a bit of shimmer to the truck with a silver glitter pen.
