You’ve already seen the moose on a sled (if not, please check it out here), and you’ve already seen my pile of Santas (if not, please check it out here). I don’t want to go overboard with the Visions of Santa stamp set, but it has really had my creative juices flowing. I had another idea bubbling up inside me that I couldn’t pass up, and I’m excited to share it with you today. My concept fits nicely with the Mojo Monday Sketch this week, so I made this:
Tips, Tricks and Reminders
- One, Two, Three Stamp Sets. The images on this Whisper White panel are pulled from three separate stamp sets – two are in the Holiday Catalog, and one is in the Annual Catalog. Can you name all three? If not, I’m going to tell you in a moment, anyway, so please don’t stress – but could you name them if you had to? I combined the Santa image (so calmly floating down from the sky) with the parachute image by masking the parachute image before stamping it down – I’ve edited a video that I’ll share with you later in the week – so be on the lookout. Click on any of these images to get a better look at them:
- Color Inspiration. Old Olive and Real Red are easy choices when planning a card around the holidays. When Basic Black and takes an important role in the project, thought, the entire thing takes on a new life. I tried it and was excited about the result. If you want to give it a try, feel free to save this:
- Time for a Re-do. The card I shared above is the second version of this card. The top wasn’t balanced (too much white space), and I wasn’t happy with it. I took my pictures but had to revisit it to add more weight to the top – I removed the pearls and added the thick Old Olive banner and a single Basic Black Candy Dot. If I had time, I would have moved the banners and Santa up on the card, but everything was already glued down. The quick fix added the weight I needed to make this card work the way I wanted. Here’s my Version One:
Stamp Sets: Visions of Santa, Get Your Santa On, Boys Will be Boys Papers: Basic Black, Real Red, Old Olive, Whisper White, Santa & Co. Designer Series Paper Inks: Tuxedo Black Memento, Stampin’ Up! Blendabilities (Cherry Cobbler, Smoky Slate, Old Olive, Skin Tone Assortment, Color Lifter) Accessories: Neutrals Candy Dots (Basic Black), Stampin’ Dimensionals, Hexagon punch (for banner tips)
