Happy Christmas Eve to each of you!!!
Today I have a layout to share which I created for Technique Tuesday using several new stamp sets designed by the creative goddess Teri Anderson and various patterned papers by Doodlebug.
These adorable snowmen are from her darling Good To Snow set. I ended up paper-piecing them together and stamping them in both black ink and again with VersaMark and white embossing powder. I wanted my snowmen to be white all over, but this presented a challenge for their faces. A little Ranger Black Enamel to the rescue and I had just the look I envisioned. To make my white outlines pop, I rubbed the edges with a little bit of pale blue chalk ink.
For my title, I paired the word "snow" from the set with the word "pals" from the So Very Thankful by
Ali Edwards stamp set. For my date tab I used their Noted Digital Cut Files along with their Sentiment Tabs by Ali Edwards set to stamp the year.
I created my border using another super cute set of Teri's called Jolly Wishes. I heat embossed the trees with white embossing powder on both silver cardstock and the red patterned paper, fussy cutting it afterwards. I'm not going to lie... This was a bit of a delicate challenge. I tried to cut it out as one continuous piece, but in hindsight I probably should have cut them all out individually and lined them back up later when adhering them to my layout. ;)
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a warm and cozy evening surrounded by those you love. :)
