My Christmas Cards are finally done - and on their way to the Post Office - I used the Stampin' Up! Watercolor Crayons to color in 540 Snowmen Bodies, 540 Snowmen Hats, 540 Snowmen Carrot Noses, 1,080 Snowmen Buttons, some patches and some snow on the ground. Tom, my DH, decided to step in and help me with the painting - What a guy! - that certainly help speed the process along. He went to bed exhausted - teehee! - not use to this all night stamping thing! But I did appreciate his help.
Did this card the other day and just thought I'd share it with you. This is for my grandson Joey - it's his first Christmas - if you follow my blog at all I'm sure you've seen some photo's of him - he's a cutie!!
This went along with the Splitcoaststampers Try A New Technique Challenge - add some Dazzle to our Holidays! I didnt' have Dazzling Diamonds Embossing Powder (not that I could find anyhow) so I used Stampin' Up! Irrescent Ice Embossing Powder instead. The card is all glittery and oh so much prettier IRL. Santa's Head is a frame from the Stampin' Up! Chipboard On Board Trimmings. I painted it first with Delta Creamcoat Magnolia White then covered it with VersaMark and the Embossing Powder. Santa's buckle is also chipboard - from Close To My Heart Chipboard Ribbon Accents - covered in Stampin' Up! Gold Glory Embossing Powder.
This card is a very close take-off on the card in the October issue of Paper Crafts Magazine - I just blinged mine up a little to go with the challenge and to get a smile out of Joey!! TFL
