Hello my friends! A new Christmas card to share today. I have to admit, I'm not usually one to do a lot of colouring. With my vision it is very difficult, so I tend to keep it very basic and "rustic". But I had seen this stamp and die set on-line and I just thought it was so cute, I had to have it. After I ordered it, I saw it at Michaels (where it had not been a couple of days before, lol) I was so anxious to receive it, but the truth is, things have been so hectic that I am finally just getting to use it now. I decided to try a little scene building. So I got out a few more stamps and dies.
(please excuse the photos, I am having some lighting issues right now)
First I stamped my house and created a mask to cover it while I created a background. I used Broken China distress ink for my background and splattered it with some Heidi Swapp white Color Shine. I used some torn paper to create my snow drifts. I used my Spectrum Noir markers to colour th truck and presents and the house. The window actually die cuts right out of the truck, but I popped it backed in and added a suggestion of a driver. I thought a driverless truck would be a little creepy! I used my snow marker to add some snow to the trees and house.
Once all my colouring and die-cutting was done, I assembled my card. I added some shimmer with my Wink of Stella. I mounted the card-face to some patterned paper to vorder it, and then to my card base.
I also cut and coloured a few more trucks at the same time, so I will be posting another card shortly that I have just about finished, Then there will be another card coming down the pipeline soon. I feel it makes sense to use your materials while you have them out. but you don't necessarily have to make them all the same, although mass producing isn't a bad idea, either. So if you like this card (which I hope you do because it was fun to make!) Then check back in to see the next version very shortly.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
