Happy Thursday everyone! It’s soggy here in PA..a good time to be inside stamping! For my Christmas card this week, I am using the sketch from ala Card Monkey:
and here is my card---I used a few liberties with the sketch!
I am trying to incorporate fabric into some of my projects and I thought this piece would be pretty with my vintage snowman. I used sticky strip to adhere it and made it a bit off-kilter and “wrinkly” to match the vintage theme. I also smudged the edges with Tea Stain ink from the Distressing Kit.
If I had been feeling a tad bit more energetic I would have added some glitter to the snowflakes and maybe stamped on the background, but as it is, it’s going to be a glitter-less card! Mr Snowman was stamped in Stazon, colored with reinkers, an aquapainter and a White Watercolor Crayon. I used my Stamp-a-ma-Jig to stamp the sentiment from Christmas Greetings to fit the oval punch. Thanks for visiting today!
A few people asked me about my stamp pad storage caddy from this post. Unfortunately, because of SU restrictions, I can’t post here on my blog where I got it. I can try to answer individual emails when possible. Please, as a reminder….if you ask me a question in the comment section, but do not give me your email address or if you post anonymously, there is no way I can answer your question!!! Several people have asked me something recently and I have felt bad because I wanted to answer but had no way to respond! I don’t want people to think I am rude!!! LOL! You can always email me at leanne dot pugliese at gmail dot com!
