Stamping 411 Challenge


I really enjoyed the Stamping 411 Challenge last week, and I was even selected as one of the operators' picks which was extra exciting! The sketch this week was another good one (aren't they all???), so I wanted to play along again…challenges are always a great way to get your juices flowin' for the week!


For this card I used the Loads of Love stamp set, and I stamped it in Black StazOn on watercolor paper. I colored it using an Aquapainter and the ink on the inside of the covers of Real Red, Basic Grey, Brocade Blue and Close to Cocoa. I did the wheel rims and handle with Platinum Shimmer Paint (used a Blender Pen to apply it), and for the windshield and what I think would be headlights? I used Champagne Shimmer Paint. I stamped the trees in Always Artichoke and Chocolate Chip, and yes I think this card may be on glitter overload!!!!!!! Besides the glittery snow and trees I also added glitter to my corduroy button. I also used Chocolate Chip wide grosgrain ribbon, a 3/4" Circle Punch, and Stamping Sponges. The CS is Real Red, Always Artichoke, WW, and Kraft.

I hope you're all having as fabulous a day as I am…enjoy the rest of it and I'll be back tomorrow!

  1. Ok, confession time for me…..I truly do not like this stamp set, but your adorable card is making me rethink that. I love how you’ve used it here – those snow drifts are fab! I may have to case this for class next week – boy won’t they be surprised!
    So glad you played along this week!
