Hello Stampin’ Friends ~
Today I want to share with you a card that I created using a really fun stamp set and the just released Stampin’ Blends!! Pairing these two together was double the fun!!
I began by stamping the cute little elf onto Whisper White … I’ve been waiting to use this one!! Then I colored my elf with the Old Olive, Daffodil Delight and Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends pairs.
I used the technique of laying the light colored alcohol ink (Stampin’ Blends) and then the darker color. I then go back and use the lighter color to blend the two colors seamlessly … oh it’s fun. Don’t you love the way his hair is highlighted … wooo hooo!
I chose the “Christmas Around the World” Designer Series paper because it has that old fashioned “retro” look just like our little elf!! Then just a block of cardstock on two corners to draw your eye to the focal point.
The elf itself was double stamped … then the greeting was cut out and popped up to give more dimension. He is just toooo stinkin’ cute! A simple layout but oh so effective to send a Happy Holidays!
Thanks so much for stopping in to check out today’s project, I hope you enjoyed it.
Have a great day … we are one day closer to the weekend!!
