Tonight was The Stamping Boutique’s Holiday Party. There were lots of prizes to be won and lots of fun conversations to be had, that’s for sure! Challenge #2 for the party, used a straightforward sketch by the talented Pam Nezrick Loris. Go here to see the other contributions for this sketch as well as the actual sketch itself—they’re fabulous!
Merry Christmas HO! HO! HO! Card
Reindeer Train digital stamp from The Stamping Boutique. This image was colored and paper-pieced digitally using Crate Paper’s Peppermint Kit in Photoshop Elements, traced in Silhouette Studio, and then printed-and-cut using my Silhouette Portrait. I isolated parts of the train applied them to the base using 3D Zots and Tombow Mono Multiadhesive.
This digital stamp is only $3.25 and because it’s digital, you don’t pay for shipping and you get it FAST! Clicking on the image below will take you directly to the product page at The Stamping Boutique. This little cutie can be used for all kinds of holiday projects for years to come.The Peppermint Collection by Crate Paper was used to fill the digital stamp and the other layers of the card. This kit is available NOW at acdigitals.com.
The file card base is by Silhouette America and cut from Krafty premium cardstock by Core’dinations. The font, scalloped border, and layers of the card are also bits and pieces from the Silhouette America Online store as well as the 3D bow and pennants which were filled with prints from Crate Paper’s digital kit.
The buttons are from my scrappy craft stash. I believe they were manufactured through Autumn Leaves quite a while back. These were sewn onto the bow and tab of the card base using my Singer Futura and embroidery thread with button attachment.
Below is a peek at Crate Paper’s Peppermint Collection used in the card above.
