So Suzy - September Release

Hi Everyone,

So Suzy Stamps has an amazing new release this month - all the stamps are simply beautiful! And you can stock up on new Christmas stamps to get you into the mood of making them!

I used three of the new stamps - the big snow globe - that also doubles as a vase or fishbowl, the cute little house in the trees and the Santa sleigh. I love my little snow globe scene!

I was a bit involved to make it, but I think it was worth the effort!

My So Suzy stamp supplies:

I first stamped the snow globe and the little house.

Colored them with Inktense pencils and did a subtle water color wash for the background.
Made myself a mask for the background, as I did not like the way the wash looked. 

At that point I had made some splatter snow - of course you should do this as the last step....
So here I am sponging the inside of the globe in an ombre pattern. I also masked off some reflection to make it more realistic looking.

And that's how it looked after the masks came off.

Now I took the cut out globe and laid it onto the card. I sponged around it with darker colors.

And that's how it looked after I took of the globe mask. You see that I had added Stickles at some point - in my haphazard way of card making...

So I kind of liked it. I added the heat embossed sentiment and some Washi tape. Then I took the final picture, or so I thought..... but then I decided the Santa sleigh would make a great addition and added him in.

Finally, the finished card, ta da! Better with the sleigh, what do you think?

Happy Stamping!

Dandelion and Christmas Trees

Hi  Everyone, I am getting tired of making Christmas cards.... I needed a break from them. I love the inspiration picture for the current Sunday stamps challenge , so I pulled out my ancient Hero Arts stamp to make this card.  The sentiment is by Unity stamps. Did some masking and sponging. I also performed a little surgery on my stamp, as those falling dandelion seeds are attached to the main stamp. Just a little cut with my Exacto knife and I set them free! I am also linking up with: Mod Squad Challenge  - Anything but Christmas (exactly how I feel....) Happy Little Stampers Dec CAS Challenge   -  Favorite Technique (sponging is my favorite)    But I do have a Christmas card for you, in fact I  made two - they are slightly different - do you see it? My materials are: tree dies - Papertrey, sentiment - Simon Says stamps, some punches, gingham stamp - Stampin' up, PP cut with a die by Paper Smooches, added a little bit of Stickles to the tre
