When this Christmas...


Suzanne at Quietfire Design has redone this Christmas quote and my card uses the new release which is now available as a cling stamp rather than naked rubber.  I love that all these new releases are now cling and older stamps will be converted over time.

I used Distress paint picket fence and Distress stains (tumbled glass, broken china, shaded lilac) to begin my background.  Loved doing this technique at Tammy's class this past weekend and I guess I'm not ready to stop.  The trees (an old PSX stamp) are stamped with Archival Ink sap green.  Distress ink faded jeans around the edges and then distressed the edges with a paper distresser. The quote is stamped with jet black Archival Ink.  White paint is spattered on.  The snowflake is the Tim Holtz new die and embossing folder combo release Layered Snowflake and it is cut from an Idea-ology frosted sheet.  The trim across the card is a satin cutout snowflake ribbon and I've used Tim Holtz's tiny attacher to attach it.  A heart brad to hold on the big snowflake with the panel glued to a folded white card and we are done.
