Good morning! Today is a new Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge, and this time our theme is “Holidays”. We’d love to see what you make, so please head over to the challenge blog and play along!
I’ve had the Signs of Santa stamp set for quite a while but only recently got to play with it! The coordinating dies are sold out, so I wanted to show you what you can make with just the stamp set. I’m also using the Candy Cane Season stamp set. My card base is Bermuda Bay. I made the main feature by stamping several things on Whisper White card stock. I stamped the North Pole, Santa, and the elf in Memento Tuxedo Black ink first, then I stamped the snowflakes from Candy Cane Season in Bermuda Bay. I stamped the sentiment and “North Pole” in Real Red. I colored the little scene with Stampin’ Blends (Bermuda Bay Combo, Crumb Cake Combo, Real Red Combo, Dark Mango Melody, Call me Clover Combo, Petal Pink Combo, Light Smoky Slate, and Light Pool Party).
After I colored everything, I added glitter to the North Pole, Santa’s beard, mustache, and hat, and the elf’s pompom. I first added Multipurpose Liquid glue, then dumped on Dazzling Diamonds glitter. I love glitter — it’s a treasure. I framed the feature piece out with a skinny Call Me Clover mat, and framed that out with a skinny Whisper White mat. After I glued these down, I cut the snow swirl from Sparkle Glimmer paper using one of the Snowfall thinlits dies. Sadly, these are now gone, but I couldn’t resist using them one last time.
Inside the card, I stamped more snowflakes and finished off the sentiment.
Thanks for stopping by!
