The One with the Colorado Craft Company Christmas Blog Hop

Hello everyone.

Today I have some products that were kindly sent to me from Colorado Craft Company to participate in a blog hop. The participants are listed below. I am playing with the NEW Gingerbread Cuties mini stamp set as well as the Snowman Hug Mug stamp set. I created a winter themed holiday card using those products and a few other things from my stash.

Koren Wiskman (You Are Here)

Background: 3 1/2 inches by 4 3/4 inches

For the background, I used a few of my favorite hill dies to create a stencils to inkblend my snowy scene. I used Speckled Egg Distress Oxide ink with a Ranger round ink blending tool to paint a few hills behind my focal image. I decided to create an aperture using a scallopped oval die, also from my stash. I then ran it through my die cutting machine to emboss some snow.


I stamped the sentiment directly onto the background panel trying not to stamp on the hills. I'm not sure I love it there, but it's done. It's handmade, right?

Focal Image:

I stamped the critter in a gingerbread man suit from the NEW Gingerbread Cutie mini stamp set onto watercolor paper with ranger Jet Black Ink. I also stamped the chain image from the Snowman Hug Mug and colored them both with Derwent Inktense pencils.

I added a small chain I crafted from red and green paper I have in my curated paper collection. It was tedious but I really think it adds a fun element to the card. I used 3/4 inch by 1 1/2 inch strips and glue dots to create them.

I also added some white texture paste around the "icing" parts of his suit. I put it in a blunt tipped syringe with an 18 gauge tip and I think it looks exactly like it would look if I was using icing. I'm not saying that's a good thing, it's just true.
