Winter Woods Christmas Card!

Even though Christmas is a couple months away, I'm gearing up for this wonderful holiday now!

Here is a card I made for a challenge our stamping team had in early September.  We were asked to stamp a card without any cardstock layers.  We could use embellishments and ink, but that was it.

Here is the card I made.

Winter Woods Collage 9-18

I used my new Stamparatus...awesome tool!  I also used several markers to blend in all the colors on the trees.  The last step was to add some shimmer and I used our new Frost White Shimmer Paint on page 38 of the new 2018 Holiday Catalog.  I added a drop of Pear Pizzazz Refill Ink to the Frost White Shimmer Paint (you don't want to change the color too much) and painted it on the stamp.

With the Stamparatus, you can use several different markers to blend in all the different colors on the tree.  The Stamparatus holds the stamp in place while stamping several times on your cardstock.

Here is the product I used to make this card:

- Winter Woods Stamp Set (Wood-147658; Clear-147661)
- Sentiment from the Timeless Tidings Stamp Set (Wood-148989; Clear-148936)
- Gold Foil-Edged Cards & Envelopes (147901)
- Frost White Shimmer Paint (1470460
- Pear Pizzazz nk Refill (131160)
- Markers: Pear Pizzazz, Old Olive, Mossy Meadow, Early Expresso, and Cajun Craze

I hope you are starting to think about Christmas and that this card gives you some inspiration.
