The Stamp Review Crew | White Christmas

http://stampreviewcrew.blogspot.com/2016/04/stamp-review-crew-white-christmas.html

Today for the Stamp Review Crew we want you to put your Christmas hats back on and get ready for some Christmas ideas using the stamp set White Christmas. Its a fabulous photopolymer set that is perfect for creating that winter Christmas scene.

You may have come here from Holly's blog, thanks for clicking on. Wasn't her card just so 'sweet'!

I can honestly tell you that my mind just wasn't co-operating with this one to get those Christmas ideas happening. Not sure what it was but my creation came down to the last minute to get created. It's not time for Christmas! Ha!

I did manage to get something created and I'm quite happy with how it turned out.
I originally started to using the dots image from this set to create a 'snow' background but because my White Craft Ink Pad was so juicy it just wasn't happening the way I wanted. So I went with plan B and used my ever favourite embossing folder at the moment, Softly Falling, and that was perfect to create that snow like background.

I've used some of the images to create a bit of a winter Christmas scene on the side. It might be a bit hard to see but I've used a light Soft Sky wash at the top of the circle to create a sky and on the snow man, banner and the tree I've gone over with just a light wash of Wink of Stella. That stuff is just gorgeous with it's subtle sparkle and shine but ever so hard to photograph!


Its all finished off with some Burlap Ribbon, Crochet Trim and some Cherry Cobbler Bakers Twine.

Might be a good time to start to make some Christmas Cards. Then they might be done and I might actually get some sent this year instead of just making them. Might need a new Christmas Card hashtag #imbringingchristmascardsback Ha!

  3. I am so glad that you made a Christmas card with this set, it turned out beautifully :) I love the pop of red on your banner, and the subtle blue sky on the circle. And of course, the use of the Softly Falling embossing folder!

  5. I love every single element you have put on this card Rochelle. It looks to me as if you have cut each and every banner - if that is the case, then that is ultimate dedication!
