Living is Southern California, I don’t have a lot of opportunity to experience snow. If I wanted to, I could drive to the mountains during or after a snowy time, but since we have been in drought for so many years, and really, driving through mountain roads is a little scary, I am taking the next best thing. Rubber stamping snow scenes!
OK, sure that was a bit of a reach, but you know, you have to try to explain why your stamping skating, don’t you? Or maybe not? I don’t know, but I’m an explainer, so…that’s my story and I’m sticking to it!
At the last Original Rubber Stamp Show in Carson, I had the pleasure of meeting the folks at Blank Page Muse. Earlier in the year I had purchased a bunch of their stamps (then, mostly their steampunk and Alice Stamps) and was looking over further images. I came across this Santa image, which fits perfectly in my holiday plans for the upcoming holiday. I started working on this new card, using paper piecing and thought that it came out really nice. Thought I would share!
What you Need for the Card:
Skating Stamp [Blank Page Muse]
Three papers: White (A2 sized), Patterned Holiday Scrap (small pattern), and a different coordinating Holiday Paper (A2 sized)
1 blank A2 card [to attach the layers to]
Black Embossing Powder
Silver Embossing Powder
Dies of Snowflakes and the Word “Joyful” [Or really any sort of Holiday sentiment is fine.]
Colored Pens or Pencils
Self Stick Pearls
Distress Oxides or Pigment Blending Inks [Two different shades of blue — I used Broken China and Lagoon]
