Winter Wishes!



As promised I am back again today with some more sneak peeks of the new stamps that will be released by Elzybells Art Stamps on Thursday 22nd October.

Today I am using the Tags – Christmas set … just love this set! You can see more ideas using this set in my post I did yesterday.

If you look at both of my projects today you will notice I have used the snowmen stamps included in the set … at first glance they might look like the same stamp … but they aren’t! One the snowman is solid and the other the background is solid which means you get a different look when you stamp them.

For my first card I used the solid snowman and also one of the tiny sentiments included in this set. I stamped the snowman on blue card using white ink and then embossed it with white embossing powder. The snowmen are on the blue middle layer of the card. The top white layer I punched out the holes so the snowmen would show through … I also used the snow cuttlebug embossing folder to add texture to this layer, and then attached it over the blue layer using foam tape. It is hard to tell in the photo but I also added 3 score lines down the right side and bottom of my card.

To create my ornament I used the Fleur De Lis Pendant Die from Spellbinders. I cut out two of these from navy card and sponged the edges using white ink. And then layered everything using foam tape for added dimension.


Here is a side on view of my ornament.
