Card Making Monday: Stamped Snowman Card


This is the last Christmas edition of Card Making Monday for this year, I hope you enjoy it! I tried out my new Christmas stamp today! Here is the result:


I am very happy with how it turned out, although, I still need a lot more practice using my copic markers- I've gotta get the technique right, it's so tricky. That's definitely a goal I have for next year. Anyway, how sparkly awesome is this card! It took me a while to get it right- halfway through I changed papers and design. Initially I wanted to heat emboss my snowflake paper (the background paper behind the stamped image) with blue and silver glitter powder. I thought it was a brilliant idea, however, it didn't go do plan at all. I really need a better quality watermark ink pad, I have a craaaappy one, yo. I know what I'm buying in the boxing day sales. Yay! OK... I'm gettin' off track, as usual...


For this card I even got to use some paper that I've had in my stash for years but haven't found a use for yet, so I'm pretty excited about that! For this card I used pre-cut white cardstock, some patterned paper and some glitter paper which I got from Spotlight.


I stamped my image on some white cardstock, cut it out and stuck it down on some blue polka dot paper which I embossed with snowflakes using my beloved cuttlebug. I used Stickles clear glitter glue to decorate the border of the stamp and the snowflakes.


I used a snowflake punch to cut out some snow flakes from some gorgeous pearlescent paper, stuck them down in random spots and decorated with some pearls. Pretty!


And of course I couldn't resist adding some sparkly ribbon!


Materials used: White cardstock, patterned paper, polka dot paper, pearlescent paper, silver glitter paper, cuttlebug snowflake embossing folder, snowman stamp, Memento ink in Tuxedo black, Stickles clear glitter glue, small snowflake punch, Merry Xmas silver flat sticker, Kaisercraft self adhesive pearls in Denium, The Paper Mill silver speckle ribbon, Orange watercolour pencil, Copic sketch markers in Honey and Process Blue.
