Hello Friends!! Woo Hoo Stamptember is here and I am super exited to be a part of the Simon Says STAMPtember blog hop. I always get giddy this time of year because Simon has made it where it’s impossible to say September… I just think STAMPtember instead of September lol.
Today I have three cards and a video for you.
Simon Says Stamp does it again with lots of exciting stamps to create fun holiday cards with. This stamp is called, “An Arctic Christmas” … I couldn’t wait to ink it up and color! It’s such a delightful scene and would make anyone smile. (In a week or so I will be sharing this stamp again except with the mountains all green with snowy caps)
A strip of heavy weight vellum across the top worked for a last minute sentiment addition. The sentiment was embossed with white embossing powder and I added a thin strip of paper on top to hide any glue on the vellum.
Yes you can pop a tree for added dimension and still make a shaker card. Just add another layer of foam. I keep talking about Lawn Fawn’s dies that make shaker cards EASY. Today I used the rectangles.
I mixed some Pretty Pink Posh sequins with some glitter. I wanted that powdery snowy effect with some sequins. I added some enamel accents to the eyeballs and some tiny details and patterns with this fine tip copic marker.
For my second card I was going for that magical forest look with a little gnome house hidden deep into the forest … between the blades of tall glittery grass. Can you tell I like fairy tales. 🙂 It was love at first sight with this stamp set called, ‘”Secret Garden” .
This card took patience because I added FIVE coats of glossy accents on the windows and doors. I explain it all in the video.
I used this to glitter-ify the blades of grass. Some blending solution was added to different elements on my card. A quick bow with some twine and a water droplet for the center of my bow was the final touch.
For my last card I wanted to go simple with a quick shaker card since my other two cards are a little more involved. This stamp set is a collaboration with Lawn Fawn and Simon and it’s exclusive… in my post yesterday I share 3 MOCK shaker cards created with “Happy Howlidays” . Beware … last year it sold out super fast.
