Addicted to Stamps and More #118

Good morning

Well, we've whizzed around to Wednesday again and Addicted to Stamps and More has a fresh new challenge for you.  This week's challenge theme is...

How you interpret this is up to could be an annual holiday such as Christmas, Easter, etc. or a holiday destination/theme

Our fab sponsor this week is Eureka Stamps and the winner's prize will be 3 digis from their store.

Here is my DT card using a digi image by our sponsor...

I printed the digi onto white card and cut it out using a Spellbinders die.  I then coloured the image with ProMarkers and FlexMarkers and added some Wink of Stella to the gold trim of the sleigh and the stars on the tree.  I covered the card base with some green jacquard Christmas paper and adhered the die cut onto this.  I stamped and die cut the sentiment banner and popped this up on 3D foam and added a snowflake and some stars which were die cut from glitter paper.  I'm not overly happy with this card, it's not really my usual style as I needed to print the digi fairly large to be able to colour the detail and I then struggled a bit with my layout.  As a Christmas card, I like it.  I just prefer my more CAS designs.

Materials used:
  • Digi: Eureka Stamps - Sleigh with Presents
  • Coloured with ProMarkers and FlexMarkers
  • Accented with Wink of Stella
  • Stamp: Clearly Besotted - Mini Banners
  • Ink: Versafine - Onyx Black
  • Dies: Spellbinders Nestabilities - Labels One; Clearly Besotted - Mini Basic Banners; Uniko Studio - Designer Dies Snowflakes
  • Cardstock and paper from stash

Now, why not pop over to ATSM to get some Holiday inspiration from the rest of the Design Team.  There is a lovely selection of cards this week to get your mojo going.

We'd love you to join in and share your creations with us.

Have a great day!
