Hello! Today, I have some amazing news! I've been asked to guest design for La-La Land Crafts! Over the next 3 months, I'll be creating with all their new products as well as some of their "oldies, but goodies" I'm so excited and honored by this opportunity and I can't wait to share with you what I've been working on! So... let's get started. The theme this week is USE A STENCIL.
For my card, I decided to create my own stencil using the Double Stitched Hills Border Die. First, I die cut a light blue panel using the largest rectangle from the Scalloped Rectangles Die. Then I cut a smaller white rectangle to fit inside. I used the Double Stitched Hillside Borders Die to sponge some snowy slopes using some light blue distress ink and a sponge. Then I was ready to create my scene. I used the Three Christmas Trees Die and cut it apart to create 3 separate trees. I placed them on my panel to look as if they were sitting on top of the snow. Then I stamped out my hippo images from the NEW Hippo Holidays Clear Stamp Set, colored them up with Copics, and cut them out using my Scan N Cut 2. I used foam tape to pop them on to my panel and stamped my sentiment out in black ink. To finish it off, I added some white accents with my gel pen and some dots of Stickles glitter for snow. A die cut flag from the Stitched Pennants Die finishes it all off.
For the inside of the card, I used another light blue panel cut with the Scalloped Rectangles Die. Then I added two of the die cut trees and a banner cut with the Flag Banner Die.
