Today I’m sharing a card I made using the Spirited Snowmen stamp set. I heat embossed the image in white, then watercolored the background, and colored in the Snowpeople’s clothes using Stampin’ Write Markers. I flecked ink onto the front of the card base using a White Chalk Marker and a Clear Wink of Stella brush to represent snow. Unfortunately, once I started, I realized my chalk marker was almost dry, so I didn’t get a lot of snow. But I hope you get the idea.

 

Here’s what I made:

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Pool Party card stock (CS) cut to 4-1/4″ x 11″, then scored in half at 5-1/2″
  • Shimmery White CS cut to 2-1/2″ x 3-3/4″
  • Whisper White CS cut to 4″ x 5-1/4″ for the inside of the card base

Stamped with the Spirited Snowmen stamp set:

  • snowpeople and sentiment in Versamark ink onto the Shimmery White CS layer, then heat embossed in white

Colored using an Aqua Painter:

  • background of Shimmery White CS layer in Pool Party ink
  • snowpeople shading in Pool Party ink

Colored using Stampin’ Write Markers:

  • snowpeople arms in Soft Suede ink
  • snowman nose in Pumpkin Pie
  • snowpeople clothes in Real Red, Pacific Point, Call Me Clover, Basic Black

Flecked front of card base:

  • using a White Chalk Marker (there isn’t a lot of white flecking on the card because my chalk marker was almost dry)
  • using a Clear Wink of Stella glitter brush
  • NOTE: I used the cap of each one to fleck the ink onto the paper.

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • watercolored layer adhered onto the front of the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • Whisper White CS glued onto the inside of the card base
