From All of Us..

"Sending you Christmas CHEER!" This was a fun card to make, I always love creating scenes and going to look at Christmas decorations around the neighborhood is always a favorite holiday activity of mine, some people really go all out here!

I stamped a row of 4 snowpeople to represent the four people in our family (giving them each a different colored hat) to send to our cousins. The images are colored very simply with Copics with a little Pale Aqua for shadowing on the left. Then I stamped out the long "Merry Christmas" from "Seasonal Sayings" in Real Red and cut between the letters to make several little signs they can could hold up and dangle like a fun yard-art display!




Running a black marker around the edge of each square makes them look like they were drawn that way. Then I placed them all askew, some attached with glue dots, some popped up on dimensionals, a few placed as though two were holding one sign together, a couple as though they are hanging by a thread (which I drew with my pen) and one that looks like a sign stuck in the snow. I drew that too, adding a little curve at the bottom of the post to look like a little hole in the snow.


"from all of us" is handwritten at the bottom. This is sort of a hybrid of my actual writing, I tried to keep it fun and funky looking, to match the art work. If you have more than three snow people you'll have to make it a long card to fit. If you look carefully, all the snow bottoms are touching exactly, no spaces or overlap! I point this out, because I didn't use a stamp positioner, just my fabulous round acrylic block, it is just amazing how straight and precisely I'm stamping with these, you've got to get them!


Have a GREAT day, I won't remind you how many shopping days are left!! ;)
