So…I snagged a MISTI at a great deal on Black Friday!! It came in handy while making today’s card (and all of the tags too!)
I inked and stamped each letter twice in Neenah Solar White cardstock — first with Mama Elephant Pacific Blue ink on the top half and then with Mama Elephant Stargazer ink on the bottom portion. (Before I stamped the bottom of each letter I used a dry baby wipe to blot the upper edge of the Stargazer ink to achieve a softer transition between ink colors.) I stamped the penguin in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and did some minimal coloring with COPIC Sketch Markers. I added some Diamond Stickles to the pom pom on the penguin’s hat then cut out the sentiment with a Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangles die.
To complete the card: I stamped the three snowflake images in Versamark ink on dark blue cardstock then heat embossed them with WOW! Azure Mist embossing powder.
To complete the tags: I die cut the largest Paper Smooches Gift Tags 2 tag from periwinkle cardstock and looped May Arts Silver Metallic String through the tag opening.
I am submitting these projects to the current Simon Says Stamp Flickr Challenge (Holiday/Christmas), Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge (Let It Snow), and Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge (Holly Jolly Stamping).
