Hello HH & OCS Fans!
It's "Christmas in July" over on the High Hopes and One Crazy Stamper Blogs! It sure has been fun creating these Christmas cards through the heat wave we've been having LOL! This stamp is called "Let the Snow Begin".....hmmmmm I almost want it to be true just to get a break from the heat. I know, don't complain right.... we had an awful Spring and I really do like the warmer weather.
I am using papers today from the MME Sugar Plum 6x6 collection that I've had for awhile now. I love using non traditional colours for Christmas and these papers fit the bill! I coloured in the image with my Copic Sketch Markers and then using my Brother Cut N Scan cut the image out as well as a cardstock layer to put behind it. Lots of layers and all the paper edges are inked with Vintage Photo Distressed ink for my card design. I used some Stampendous Spoonful of Snow for a fun dimensional and sparkly effect. Now I know you are supposed to add the "snow" and heat with your heat gun from underneath. Me and glitter don't go so well together and it usually flies all over the place LOL. This time I tried using some Glue Gloss first (looks like a tube of lipgloss) then put the "Snow" on top, pressed it down a bit and then melted it with my heat gun. It worked so much better and I wasn't wearing glitter all weekend LOL.
I used foam tape on my stamped image for added dimension.
On my decorated card inside, I used the "Seasons Greetings 2" stamp.
