On a Snowy Log

I wanted to try stamping the Woodgrain stamp in white to make it look like a snow covered log. This is the result. Card base is Real Red textured card stock, with a top fold. I scalloped the bottom edge using the Scallop Edge Punch, and layered some whisper white on the inside both to make it easy to write and to make the scallop edge stand out.

The DSP on the front of the card is from Christmas Cocoa. At the bottom of the card, I stamped Woodgrain in Versamark on Chocolate chip card stock and heat embossed it using White Embossing Powder. Where the DSP and card stock meet, I tied some 5/8″ Real Red Polka Dot ribbon.

The snowmen are from Snow Buddies stamp set, stamped in Chocolate chip ink on Whisper White. I colored them in using my Markers, trimmed them out, and adhered them to the base using dimensionals.

Snow Buddies Snow Globe

This is a CASE from the back cover of the Holiday Mini Catalog. I changed a few things, like the ribbon and base, and added a rub on sentiment. SO CUTE!

Directions: The sample didn’t come with directions so I winged it.

1. First, I used my Coluzzle (2nd to largest ring) to cut Bashful Blue card stock, folded at the top. Line up the Coluzzle cutting ring just above the fold to preserve it.

2. Cut another circle from a piece of Chocolate Chip card stock using the same 2nd to largest ring. Cut the cirle in half to make the base of the snow globe.

3. Glue the base pieces to the bottom of the snow globe and the back side as well. Make sure to line them up or your card won’t close properly!

4. Stamp the snowflakes onto the front of the Bashful Blue card stock. I used Vesamark and White Embossing Powder.

5. Stamp the snowmen from Snow Buddies onto Whisper White using Black Stazon. Color them in–I used Markers. Trim them out with paper snips.

6. Tie some ribbon around the base of the snow globe, here I used Very Vanilla 5/8″ Grosgrain.

7. Adhere your snowmen using dimensionals to the front of the snow globe.

8. Add a greeting to the base. I used Chit Chat Rub On in white on Bashful Blue card stock I punched out using Modern Label Punch.

Snow Buddies

I was really hoping I’d be able to earn this Level 2 stamp set–Snow Buddies–from the Mini catalog and I did! Someone placed an order with me and it bumped me up to the level 2 set.

This is a pretty simple card, but I’m trying to make it simple for Christmas cards because we all know how hard it is to have to make 50 complicated cards around the holidays–practically impossible.

I tried to use different colors than I normally use this time. I actually used Ballet Blue card stock and ink! I’ve never used Ballet Blue anything before. The images are stamped in Basic Black on Whisper White, colored in with Watercolor Pencils and blended using the Blender Pen. Again, to make it simple, I only colored a few spots on each snowman, just to give it enough pop.

The snowflakes are stamped in Baja Breeze and Ballet Blue ink. The sentiment is from Christmas Greetings, stamped in Ballet Blue and Not Quite Navy on top (I used the Stampamajig to get the correct placement). Along the side, I used a strip of Not Quite Navy card stock edged with the Scallop Edge Punch. The top layer is adhered to the base using dimensionals. Card base is Ballet Blue and Bashful Blue.
