Hello! This is the time of the year when the days are very cold, and the only thing you want to do is to stay home! Today I had the perfect excuse to stay home and craft for a little bit, so I created a card featuring some Fun Stampers Journey products. The stamp set that I used is called Snow Buddy and I have to point out that this is a set that has a coordinating die set. You can buy them separately or as a bundle! Fun Stampers Journey products can be purchase through a coach in your area. To find one near you, click on the “Find a Coach” button on the top of the Fun Stampers Journey welcome page.
I began by using a Color Splash Sheet and Journey Color Splash Watercolor Pencils to create the background of this card. I wasn’t sure how to cover a large area with color, so I had to practice a little bit, and I ended up just doing long strokes of color from top to bottom using a large Blending Brush . I did first a layer of blue, and then red. I repeated the steps until I was pleased with the results. After that, I white-embossed the snowflakes. Then, I matted this panel with Cranberry Bliss card stock. I tied Journey Twine Licorice Twist around the background panel and I adhered it over a Huckleberry Fusion base card.
The cute buddy was simply stamped over Whip Cream card stock with Black Licorice ink, and colored with watercolor pencils as well. I die cut it with its matching die, and I added Journey Glaze and Sparkle Cuts details. Then, I adhered this piece onto the card with foam squares. Finally, I added a sentiment, some Holiday Elements, sequins and rhinestones.
Yesterday we had some snow, not a lot, but just enough to make me want to stay home. My husband and I took our Shelby for a walk this morning (she is always happy to go outside.) We are having a second round of snow, and temperatures will drop drastically by Wednesday 😦 For sure we will all be bundled up like the little buddy of my card 🙂
