Happy Sunday, crafty friends! It’s time for a new Christmas Card Challenge
, and this week, we’re passionate about paint!
I tried something different for my card this week. I used some acrylic paint as ink when stamping my images.
I thought the images stamped clearer when I stamped on thick card stock instead of solid designer paper. I spread a layer of ink on some scrap card stock, then stamped the images. I made sure to quickly wash off the stamps with some mild soap and water so the paint wouldn’t dry on them.
I heat embossed the sentiment, and once the snowflakes were dry, I cut them out and added some Liquid Pearls to accent them.
|Other supplies: designer paper (Carta Bella), twine (Trendy Twine), snowflake stamps (Martha Stewart Crafts), embossing folder (Cuttlebug), decorative frame element (SEI), sentiment stamp (Your Next Stamp).
|All of our challenges are optional…the only “real” rule is that you must create a new Christmas, Holiday or Hannukah card, then link it up on our blog so we can stop by and say hi!
It’s not necessary that you use a Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamp on your card, but we sure love it when you do!
