In this post I am sharing one of the cards I have published in the latest issue of The Stampers’ Sampler, a card I submitted to the Holiday Happenings Challenge Call.
If you are a regular visitor then you probably recognise the stamp on this card, She Loves Snowflakes , as I have already shared a wee hanging with this stamp, HERE.
This card has a very simple colour palette of Kraft, winter white and black but it also has lots of sparkle and shimmer!
Stencilled snowflakes with one of my all time favourite mediums for artwork relating to this time of the year, which can be found here at That’s Crafty, Maimeri Iridescent Paste. This is the paste I have been using on all the mittens I’ve made recently.The sparkle appears in different forms, some I cannot now remember (!) but there is definitely Crystal Glamour Dust (DecoArt), Cosmic Shimmer Vintage Mica Flakes (both available from That’s Crafty) and a dash of vintage glass glitter.
The sentiments are from another wonderful Redlead stamp, HERE, Stamp Some Tape:- Snowflakes and Christmas Greeting. It is such a brilliant idea of two stamps in a set with the idea that you can stamp your own tape. So one design is snowflakes and the other is Christmas Greeting. Click the link to discover what they actually look like. With the Christmas Greeting stamp it means you can stamp it to appear as a piece of tape or as I did for this card, stamp onto cardstock (Kraft painted with Gesso) and then cut into strips.It looks as though I still have a fair few festive posts to share with you. I might hold the more winter themed posts to share into the New Year. Funny how to my mind, once Christmas is over and done with, I seem to think it has to be the end of all winter artwork, moving in my mind onto more Spring like style or Valentine’s yet it will still be the middle of winter in my part of the world!
(At the time of drafting this blog post, Redlead had a Christmas Greetings discount code of 30%)
