This card uses the adorable "Snowman Whimsy" and is framed using the wispy pine boughs from "Seasons Greetings Set of 6".
The gorgeous new stamp "Pine Spray" was used on this card. I also followed an older inking technique "Vintage Art" from the June/July 2011 Technique Junkies Newsletter. The background was created by dragging brown dye inks over a light cream colored card stock panel. I created a frame using an older Spellbinder label die set and sprayed the frame with Shimmering Bliss Spray "Chestnut Mare", which is a lovely warm brown spray. The sentiment is from "Gifts of Christmas" Stamp set. (FYI, you can pick this set up for 10% off by using my coupon code 10TJCHERI.)
For my final card I stamped this amazingly gorgeous "Poinsettia Frame" in VersaMark embossing ink and heat embossed it with copper ep on a light pink card stock panel. I then colored it with Copic Markers in the Red group. The highlights on the petals were created with a white PrismaColor pencil. The tiny dots in the center were created using a white gel pen. The sentiment is "Merry Christmas 2". A very light spray of Shimmering Bliss Spray Topper "Iridescent" was sprayed over the entire panel giving it a beautiful shimmer.
Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you found some inspiration while you were here. To continue the hop in order, please go on over and check out another incredibly talented crafter on the team, Stephanie Severin.
