started out by stamping the trees in the background and stamping them
again without re-inking the stamp. Next I stamped the fence. For the
snow banks I used a torn paper mask and an ink applicator. The snowman
was stamped on separate card stock, colored and cut out and adhered to
the card. Embellished with some glitter, a small clear button and some
Happy Monday and welcome to my new monthly challenge right here on my blog.
Some of you probably remember that I used to host a challenge earlier this year and then took a break. I am back with a challenge again, and since I had to change the day of the challenge, I couldn't keep the same name, so now I simply call it the
Monday Morning Challenge
As mentioned this is a monthly challenge, going live the last Monday of each month.
For the first challenge I picked out a very easy theme
***Anything Christmas or Winter***
Simply link your new creation with inlinkz below.
Just a few things to remember...
It must be a new creation You must mention my challenge and link back here in your post Combine with other challenges as you wish
And please note, due to high shipping costs overseas, prize winners will be chosen from USA entries only. I am very sorry about that, as I appreciate all my international blog visitors just the same, but sadly it would cost me almost $13.00 to ship the prize to Europe (in addition to the actual prize), and I find that toocostly. Thank you for understanding!!
Now onto my projects for today. . . I made two cards. . .
For the background I masked off the bottom portion of the large stamp ( Winter Song), and added snow by tearing white card stock and adhered it to the bottom portion of the card. Inked the top part of the card with distress ink leaving off the white trees by simply covering them up with scratch paper. The image has been fussy cut after coloring with copic markers. I embellished with some glitter, silver cord and a punched out snowflake.
And here is my second creation using one of my favorite snowman stamps.
I found the inspiration for this card on pinterest.
I started out by heat embossing the pine boughs and snowflakes onto white card stock. Then I inked it up with tea dye distress ink. The large stamp Glorious Song was then stamped onto the paper using tea dye ink. Layered the snowflakes and added a little button with silver twine to the center. This was then adhered to the white card base, and I stamped the sentiment on the bottom portion of the card
It's time for a little Penny Black and More inspiration! Did you play along yet in our November Challenge? There is still a little time left. As always we have some very generous sponsors again this month, and you can enter up to 3 times for more chances to win. Our theme this month is super easy too - Anything Goes - so no reason not to link up.
It's been stamped onto 110lb recollections card stock and colored with copic markers. After coloring I simply inked up the edges using a matching green ink and stamped the sentiment. Sentiment is part of this slapstick stamp set.
To finish it off I sewed around the edges and added some glitter and glassy glaze.
This beautiful stamp is called "Snow Bunny". It was one of the have to have stamps for me from the November release. I stamped her onto copic blending card using memento ink and then colored with copic markers. As you can see it's been fussy cut.
I created the background using the "Christmas Scene Builder" set from Whimsy's SCDesigns. Sentiments are from the stamp set "Winter Wonderland", another Whimsy SCDesigns favorite of mine. The card base was done using Whimsy's double scallop square die. I simply added some glitter to finish it off.
