Hello friends… in celebration of Christmas Theme Week, I have 2 fabulous cards to share with you all using a variety of Pretty Pink Posh Christmas and Winter stamp sets. All Christmas is 15% off though this weekend in the PPP shop. I wanted a fun Christmas scene, but couldn’t decide on what stamps to use, so I decided to have one big PPP snowy party.
I started with stamping out all the images on Copic-friendly paper. I used Winter Wonderland, Penguin Pals, Winter Friends, Reindeer stamps Friends, Christmas Friends, and Happy Snowman stamp sets and coordinating dies.
For the background, I cut two pieces of Bristol Smooth paper to 4.25×8.25. I heat embossed snowflakes from Winter Wonderland, using InkOn3 embossing ink and Brutus Monroe Alabaster embossing powder. For the black sentiment, I stamped with Versafine Claire Nocturne ink, then heat embossed using Brutus Monroe Icicle embossing powder. I then did an emboss-resist ink-blended background using Shaded Lilac, Worn Lipstick, and Spun Sugar Distress Oxide inks. I splattered water all over the panels, then used a paper towel to dab the water up. Next I splattered shimmer water all over the panels for sparkle. I let that set on the paper for about 30 seconds, then dabbed the water up.
To assemble the scene, I started with the Happy Holidays die. I added Stick-It adhesive to the back of magenta shimmer paper, and die cut it 4 times. I stacked them together and set them aside while I assembled the cardbase.
I taped the panels to a 8.5×4.5 card base. I used an X-ACTO knife to cut hills out of Tonic white glitter paper. I used Scor Tape to adhere the back hill, and foam tape to adhere the front hill. I then added the images, laying out the scene before hand so I knew how to layer them. Some I glued to the card base with Lawn Fawn Glue Tube, others I used Scrapbook Adhesive thin foam squares, and the rest was with foam tape.
I love how these cards turned out. It took a few hours here and there to bring them together, and it was time well spent! That’s all I have for today. I hope this inspires you to mix sets up and make your own fun Christmas scene!
