Happy Rudolph Day Everyone!!
Yep! It is 25th July today and that means Rudolph Day with my friend Sandra at Stamping for Pleasure. Why not get a head start with your Christmas (woops - I used the C word) cards and make one, post it on your blog and link it HERE. It will be round the corner before you know it.
Here is mine this month....
(Sorry about the wonky photographing but it was tricky to photograph to get the colours right so Hubby put it on his car bonnet!)
I cut some shapes out with cardstock using Spellbinders dies, inked the background with Distress Inks, stamped a background and then used my Sheena Douglass Christmas Rose stamps and the Paint Fusion technique with Pebeo paints to create the individual pieces. Once it was all dry I stamped and embossed a swirl stamp using bronze embossing powder.
I then took some Snippets (the brown was left over from Tuesday's scrapbook layout) and then stamped and embossed, using Darkroom Door stamps and the bronze embossing powder again on the top and bottom pieces. The middle piece I cut out on white and stamped in green DI. I then used ribbon to go through the middle of the panels and adhered using glue. Once these were adhered I then added the back pieces on to make a hanging.
I will then write my message on the middle piece, pop it in an envelope and it all folds flat for posting. This also includes some NBUS (Never Before Used Schtuff!) - yeay! The stamps were desperate to be abused with ink!!
I am also going to pop this into the Playground as there are a few Snippets here, and also because I won the Sheena Douglass stamps at the Playground.
Thanks for calling by. You have a week to join in so off you go and make a card. There is also a lovely stamp which you can be in with a chance to win.
