Five weeks to go... and the countdown continues. That sounds scary, but it is still plenty of time... I hope. I haven't started anything for myself yet!!
Time for another Friday Mashup. This week is an inspiration challenge, SNOWMEN!
A Cute Christmas stamp set reminds me of the classic Burl Ives Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer cartoon, especially using it for an outdoor scene.
I've done the window scene a few times, but I always feel something is missing. So I thought I would give curtains a try, especially since we have coordinating fabric. Love that! I also stained a wooden skewer with Chocolate Chip ink to coordinate. Wow, it is really hard to get a decent, in-focus photograph of this card! ETA: This card was picked as one of the favorites for week ending 11/21/10 over at Splitcoaststampers - Thanks!!
Fortuitously, this card also satisfies the ColorLab, Stamping 411, and Pals Paper Arts challenges this week. Below is a close-up of the glittery snow.
Stamps: A Cute Christmas; Paper: Whisper White, Baja Breeze, Blushing Bride, Chocolate Chip, Soft Suede; Ink: Black Stazon, Baja Breeze, Blushing Bride, Chocolate Chip, Garden Green, Real Red, So Saffron; Accessories: Aquapainter, Two-way glue pen, Dazzling Diamonds glitter, Sponges, Post-it notes, Word Window punch, Designer Label punch, Linen thread, Candy Cane Christmas fabric, Wooden skewer, Kit #4 texturz plate, Big Shot, Sewing machine, Thread.
And the card above was inspired by this card I put together for a Fancy Christmas card swap. I've been on a glittery snow scene kick lately, as anyone at my Stamp-a-Stack knows... who didn't go home with a glittery face?
I brayered the main panel with Bashful Blue and Night of Navy, used So Saffron and a sponge dauber for the sun, and then stamped and quartered the main panel. And here is a close-up of the bling.
I'm a sucker for the window scenes!
