Since we are celebrating Christmas in July, I decided to start a couple of cards. The problem is I never seem to be finished with Christmas cards... the end of November always leaves me scrambling.
I went with cool blues here to distract me from the extreme heat we are getting.
For this one I used papers from the Winter Wonderland collection by Asuka Studio, who designs for Memory Place. This consists of the background and the ornament. I cut a bit of a window design from Bazzill Basics in color Jacaranda. The ribbon is a paper embellishment (BoBunny). Very cute, I think.
Card base is Bazzill Basics Taffy Card Shoppe.
I have always loved penquins. This sweet little stamp is from the first arrival of stamps I ordered when I opened the store. I have used it multiple times and in a variety of ways. I started with Studio Light paper, cut a snowflake border in blue. Stamp was colored with a mix of alcohol inks and distress markers. Then I used texture paste to create the ice stage. You cannot see in the photo, but glitter was added to the stage, the snowflakes and a few dots in the background.
Products used: Art Impressions Rubber Stamp,
Joy Crafts Snowflake Border Die,
Tim Holtz/Ranger Texture Paste, Rock Candy
Sprinkles and stickles,
Bazzill Basics Cardstock - Jacaranda and
