Sugar and Spice Challenge #8
Christmas in July
Time for the Sugar and Spice Crafty Challenge again! This challenge we were asked to make something for the theme "Christmas in July". So with all the warm/humid weather we are having it was very hard to get into Christmas, but I put my thinking cap on and decided to use my new stamp, Winter Snow Globe, from Papertrey Ink that my daughter gave me for Christmas. I got out the embossing tools and went to work. First I used a Sizzix embossing folder and embossed my cardstock. After stamping Santa and the snow globe, I then colored santa with a red marker. Next, I embossed the snowglobe and snowflake over Santa with Stampendous star dust-(I'm sorry bad pic. but just couldn't get a better picture today).
My second card is pretty much the same except I did use the clear zing inside the globe and you can see a much cleaner look. You can also see the star dust embossing powder much better. This card was stamped with a smokey grey ink then heat embossed over, colored the tree and lites with markers.
