White Christmas

Good afternoon! This week I have been taking it easy after a busy week last week and it has been a good thing to do. But now it is time to share with you again - on this wonderful Wednesday -  and time for another sketch from The Paper Craft Crew.

When I first saw this sketch I knew I wanted to create a scene using the White Christmas stamp set (it's first inking) and highlight part of the scene. The square frame seems to be one of the On Film framelits to me but here in Australia our standard card sizes are slightly different and i didn't think that it would fit and so instead I used the smaller film frame….

The black on red greeting is much clearer in real life too….

The DSP is from the All is Calm pack and that influenced the colour choices - except for the red of course!! I stamped the trees image in Momento Tuxedo Black and then used a Coastal Cabana Blendabilities marker to highlight the "ground" lines and under the tree. The two little birds are actually cut out by hand and added with some dimensionals as is the little snowman. I coloured the red Rhinestones with a blend abilities marker and both of the Banners were punched out and the Silver glimmer one just shortened with a pair of paper snips :-)

Card stock: Pool Party, Real Red, Whisper White, Silver Glimmer
DSP: All is Calm
Inks: Momento Tuxedo Black, Cherry cobbler and Coastal Caban blendabilities markers
Stamps: White Christmas
Accessories: Big Shot, On Film Framelits, Stars Framelits, Banner Punch, Hexagon punch, Basic Rhinestones, Frosted Sequins

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you have time to check out all the great ideas from the Paper Craft Crew team this week and maybe you might be the next to enter!

Happy stamping until next time,
