Santa On His Way

Ho ho ho! It's getting close to the time when Santa comes for a visit, and this week, the Stampendous Design Team is focusing on just that. Our theme for the week is "Santa Claus is Coming to Town." My card for today features the Santa's On His Way stamp, which has a wonderful vintage feel. I need to apologize, for some reason, I only have 1 photo of this card. The snow in the background is chock full of Multi-Crystal Glitter Mix, but you'll have to take my word for it. Below are the instructions on how to recreate this card.

Standing in the Clouds with ADfD

Hello! I have a new card with a lovely image from A Day for Daisies to share with you today. The digi is called Standing in the Clouds.

I colored this beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up.

My background was created with the Piasso Stencil from Dreamweaver (available from Stampendous), White VersaColor Ink (from Imagine), a sponge dauber, and Detail White Embossing Enamel. Then I sprayed the background with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You'll see that better in the photo below. The entire background looks frosty. My sentiment is from the Soaring Sentiments set. I edged it and my card base with Bahama Blue and Danube Blue Memento Ink, which really matched her jacket perfectly.

See the pretty shimmer? I love the Sheer Shimmer Spritzes, and I encourage you to give them a try. I'll have another project for A Day for Daises soon, and our February challenge will be posted on Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
