So Suzy & Crackerbox Stamps - Harry Christmas

Hi Everyone,

I have been playing with the new So Suzy & Crackerbox Stamps release.
Using some of those Harry Potter stamps and turned them into a Christmas card......
I must admit, I saw something similar on Pinterest and "recreated" it


My Crackerbox and So Suzy Stamp supplies:


I first gessoed a page from a dictionary, let it dry and ironed it, as the Gesso wrinkled the paper.


Before I started stamping, I masked of the "ME" from the word Merry on the stamp with a piece of Scotch tape (after I had inked it up)
 

I drew in the Ha - to turn the Merry into Harry.
Stamped and tore the paper to fit an A2 card base.


Attached the dictionary page to a piece of designer paper (Alexandra Renke)
Added some gold string and a little gold brad.


I had also colored the letter with Finetec Mica colors and added a few white gel pen accents to the glasses and the sentiment.



Our current promotions:

All Christmas Stamps are 15% off in the month of November

No automatic alt text available.

And this wonderful sentiment is 50%off in November

Too clever by half. LOVE that you altered the sentiment and included all those Potter icons. And, of course, you know I'd love the colors. You're really good at this, girl.

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....)
