Snow Thankful

Hey! Today I'll share a Panorama Card made with three stamp sets. Snowman Couple - Christmas  Stamp set 872 is from latest Sparkle N Sprinkle reveal. A Winter Wonderland 517 and Tree Scene 723 are from last year but I think they are brilliant with Snowman Couple. My card has for layers: Background with A Winter Wonderland, second layer with Tree Scene, third layer with Snowman Couple - Christmas and top frame with sentiment.

One must have tool to make this card was Tim Holtz Stamp Platform. It was a huge help for me because I did all the stamping to watercolor cardstock. Thanks to the Stamp Platform I was able to get perfect impression by re-stamping images several times exactly to the same place. All the stamping is done with Metro Grey Nuvo Hybrid Ink. For coloring I used Nuvo Aqua Flow Brushes from Autumn Woodland set. I also used Bianyo Watercolor Brush Markers. I added sparkle to the Snowman Couple with Sakura Glue Pen and Meadow Spark and Fire Engine Red Glitters. To the snow pile in front of the Snowman I adhered some Shaved Ice Glitter with Sakura Glue Pen. And on top of that I added Nuvo Glimmer Paste (Moonstone).  I fussy cut top part of the images and left bottoms wide enough to adhere them to my Panorama folds. Tuxedo Black Memento Dual Marker was used to hide the white peeking from the sides of the stamped images.  To the Snowman Couple I also added some Nuvo Jewel DropsGrey Mist to their buttons and Orange Marmalade to their noses.

All the snow on the trees are covered with Dimensional Glue and Princess Elsa Frost from Frozen Glitter set. Snow on the ground is covered with Moonstone Nuvo Glimmer Paste

Sentiment is stamped with two inks to the Watrcolor Cardstock and then it is heat embossed. At first I stamped it with Metro Grey Nuvo Hybrid Ink and second time with Versamark ink. Because I used Stamp Platform, two stamped layers are exactly on top of each other. Versamark ink is covered with Clear Embossing Powder and it's heat set with Heat Tool. I drew a sign post my self and colored it with Nuvo Aqua Flow Brushes from Autumn Woodland set and few others Watercolor Brush Markers. I fussy cut it out and added some snow with Dimensional Glue and Princess Elsa Frost from Frozen Glitter set.

Following picture gives you a slight idea how this card is put together and you can see the layers. I had so much fun to make this card. 

For the top layer I used a piece of pattern paper and cut an opening to it with Spellbinders Labels Thirty-Six. Last week I shared a card where I was left with  2 1/2" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape protective sheet with snowflake shape holes in it.  Now I used it as a mask to make snowflakes with Moonstone Nuvo Glimmer Paste on top of the pattern paper. Edges of the top layer are covered with with Dimensional Glue and Princess Elsa Frost Glitter.

Cat's Christmas

Are you done with your Christmas cards for this year or you still need to make some more? I have a fun card idea for you. I used a two stamp set from Sparkle N Sprinkle: Cat's Meow #870 and Snowman Couple - Christmas #872.

Those cats on Cat's Meow stamp set are adorable. I couldn't resist not to use them on the Christmas card. Both cats are stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink and they are heat embossed with Clear Embossing Powder. Their ears, nose and eyes are colored with Promarkers. To color the cats fur I adhered Twinkling Clouds Sparkle N Soft and Elephant Flocking to them with Sakura Glue Pen. First I added glue to the places where I applied grey flocking. Then I moved on to adhere sparkling white. Rose Water Nuvo Jewel Drops is added to the cats noses.

On the original version of this chubby cat he looks like he's about to cry. That wouldn't be nice on a Christmas card. So I was careful while inking the stamp and made sure that part of his mouth was left without the ink. Rest of the mouth is drawn with a fine tip permanent black pen. He is much happier now :)

Sentiment from the Snowman Couple - Christmas stamp set is stamped to the vellum with Versamark ink. I heat embossed it with Silver Detail Embossing Powder.  I drew couple lines with Sakura Glue Pen to above and below the sentiment and covered them with Ballerina Microfine Glitter. After I had assembled entire card, it felt that the sentiment din't show up as good as needed. So I took a fine tip permanent black marker and covered embossed words with it.

To make the background I covered piece of white cardstock with 2 1/2" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape. Then I used MemoryBox Twilight Snowflakes die to cut snowflakes to the protective sheet of the tape. Because I used heavier paper underneath the tape and not too much presser while diecutting, I didn't had to worry about cutting the snowflakes out. It just cut the top layer. 
I removed most of the protective sheet (left the snowflakes in place) and covered the tape with Nuvo Gilding Flakes (Silver Bullion). I saved the protective sheet. Come back on next Saturday to see how I use it on the other card :) 
Then I removed protective sheet from the snowflakes and covered the tape with Cloud Nine Microfine Glitter. 

All was left to too was make a matting layer and add some embellishments. For matting layer I adhered 1/4" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape all around the edges of the cardstock and adhered background layer to the center. Then I covered revealed tape with Ballerina Microfine Glitter. 
As a final touch I added Rose Water Nuvo Jewel Drops in center of each snowflake. 

And now, something exited! Do you know already about the SNS 2018 Creative Team Call? No: take a look to the SNS blog to read all about it. Yes: Well, what are you waiting for? Apply immediately! Your going to love it!
