Share the Joy!
It's another beautiful Tuesday in card land, and I have a super cute Christmas card to share with you today. It features one of Hero Arts' brand spankin' new cling stamps called Share the Joy Snowman.
I am in LOVE with these new cling stamps!! Wanna know why?!! Well, first of all they're made of deeply etched rubber - the impression was perfecto in just one try. Second of all, the image is indexed on the back of the cling, so that when you attach it to your clear block, the image shows through!! I LOVE that!! The third thing that I love about them, besides that this one's stinkin' cute, is that I can cut the sentiment with my handy dandy Tonic scissors so that it can be placed in any kind of configuration. That's what I did here. I snipped each word of the sentiment and placed them on my block to fit the space on my card. How flippin' cool is that?!! ABC Toys & Crafts has recently received a huge shipment of these cling stamps - some for the holidays, some for every occasion. Check them out HERE for yourself!!
Okay, so back to the card. I stamped the snowman image onto kraft cardstock using Vintage Cream pigment ink, and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I then colored the image with my Lyras and Gamsol, and cut him out. I think the rest is pretty self-explanatory. I'll include a list of materials below.
I apologize for the poor quality of my photo. My husband and I are on our way back down to AZ for the winter. I'm writing this from a Best Western in Jerome, Idaho. Needless to say, I made this at the speed of light right before I left, and photographed it in our hotel tonight. I think I'll sign off for the night, as my body is fatigued from telling my husband how to drive. And I have another big day of the same tomorrow. Must get my beauty sleep!!
