It’s been a while since I have completed anything to share, I have been working on a few things but they are for card swaps / christmas ornament swaps so I don’t want to share them yet and wreck the surprise!
Tonight’s project was another set of small 3×3 cards, quite simple and easy to put together. I stamped the image on shimmery white card stock (from Stampin’ Up!) and used an aqua painter to add some colour to each of the four images. The Stampin’ Up shimmery white card stock is a great alternative to water colour paper. Not only is it able to take a reasonable amount of water, it also has a really pretty shimmer to it. You can’t see it in photos, but trust me!
The card bases are 6″ x 3″ scored at 3″ to give a 3″ x 3″ card front. I sponged the background in each of the 4 feature colours (to match the colour used on the scarf / hat). The colours I used were all Stampin’ Up! colours – Cherry Cobbler, Lemon Lime Twist, Pacific Point and Sweet Sugarplum. I heat embossed in white the sentiment on a strip of coordinating cardstock and used fast fuse to secure it to the bottom of the card.
After fussy cutting out the snowmen I popped them up on a few dimensionals to give the card a bit of depth. Each of the sticks that the snowman is holding are slightly different – mostly because I am an impatient cutter and I got carried away a couple of times 🙂
I finished off each of the hats with a bit of wink of stella – again, you can’t really see this in the photo!
The Addicted to Stamps and More challenge this week is clean and simple. To be considered clean and simple the card must have a reasonable amount of ‘white space’ – where white basically means empty space, and I think these fit the bill, well I hope they do anyway as I have submitted them!
