Dashing thro' the Snow & Happy Holidays

September 20, 2008

Here are 2 cards made with the same stamps and paper.

First card is for the Wednesday Sketch challenge over at Splitcoast Gallery. Used a stamp from the Vintage Christmas stamp collection of Crafty Secrets Clear Art Stamps. Stamped the image of Santa with his sleigh and Reindeers on white cs with Black Soot Distress Ink. Then colored the images with Copic markers. Cut the cs in rectangle shape and distressed the edges by sponging Walnut Stain Distress Ink. Main image was mounted onto a green distressed cs. Used left over Christmas paper from last year to follow the sketch. Used rub-ons from America Crafts miniMARKS for the Sentiment.

The second card was made for Beate's weekned sketch challenge which you can find here. Used the same image and stamping technique as the first card above and used the same left over Christmas paper. For the sentiment I used another stamp also from the Vintage Christmas collection, which I stamped with Black Soot and colored the pinecones and Holly leaves with copic markers. Cut around the music sheet and distressed the edges with Walnut Stain. Used foam tape behind the music sheet to pop it up. Added some red brads to both ends of the center panel.

Stamps: Vintage Christmas Craft Secrets Clear Art Stamps
Paper: Left over Christmas paper (Deja Views - Flurries & frost), white, red and green cs
Ink: Black Soot and Walnut Stain Distress Ink and various Copic markers
Accessories: rub-ons and brads
