Our theme this month is "Make Someone Smile". So any happy and uplifting cards would be perfect for this challenge theme, along with the humourous ones as well.
Zig Clean Color Markers // Zig Detailer Brush // Distress Ink Tumbled Glass // Wink of Stella Glitter Brush // Bristol Vellum Paper
I decided to make another Christmas card. This time I used the cute stamp Chill Day by Penny Black along with the set Woodland Beauty to create the scenery. I have linked both to Amazon, did you know, most (if not all) amazon prime eligible products currently ship for free with no minimum purchase? And you don't have to be a prime member either. Both these stamps and most other products I used today are included in this free shipping special.
I started out by heat embossing the image on Bristol Vellum Paper using versafine onyx ink and clear embossing powder. Then colored with Zig Clean Color Markers and a Detailer Brush. I cut a quick mask to cover the image. You might think this takes time, but it's actually really quick to fussy cut as it doesn't have to be super detailed or perfect and it's done on a post it note, so it's quickly done. With the mask in place I stamped the trees in the background and finished off with some winter plants in the foreground (this stamp is also from the set Woodland Beauty). Using a hand cut mask I added an impression of a couple snowy drifts and glitter was applied using a clear wink of stella brush. Sentiment is from the Penny Black set Holly Jolly. A strip of pattern paper and some Wink of Stella clear glitter finishes off the card fron. It's then been mounted onto a Neenah linen textured card base.
Please do come join us at Penny Black and More challenge this month. We have some great prizes to give away. No need to use Penny Black products, any company is fine, just no digis as traditional stamping is required at this challenge blog. The only exception are PB stickeroos.

Thanks so much for visiting! Hope you stay warm. It snowed (again) here yesterday, I am ready to move south :-) I haven't felt this way about winter until last year when we had a miserable never - seemed -to -be -ending winter!
