Hi there friends! Isn’t the November box absolutely awesome?!? I was so excited to get this in the mail! Today I’m using one stamp to create a tag, a card and an envelope. It’s a 3 for 1! Video link at end of post,

To start off today, I grabbed a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock and cut to 4 ¼ x 5 ½. I stamped up the cute little snowman image using Versafine black. I also grabbed a piece of leftover Bristol to create the tag and stamped that as well. I will be creating snow hills behind the snowman and therefore added a mask over the top of the stamped image. A freehand hill shape was then cut for use as snow hills. This paper “hill” was placed over the snowman and Salvaged Patina Distress ink was blended over to create the hill. The process was repeated several times, moving the hill down as well as over and on the reverse side to create differing hill shapes. This was repeated on the tag as well.
The mask was then removed from the snowman. The snowman on both the card and the tag were colored using Koi Brushmarkers and water. Since this was a smaller image, the coloring was super quick. The snowman image on the envelope was stamped in alcohol marker friendly ink and that image colored with alcohol markers.
The card and tag were then splattered with watered down Salvaged Patina as well as white ink. The card was cut down by 1/8” on both sides and the tag corners were rounded and a hole punched in the top.
To finish off the card and tag, Sparkle Star Twinkles were added for more snow.
The leafy edge stencil, included in this month’s box, was then placed onto the envelope and Salvaged Patina was used to blend over the stencil. This created the perfect spot to address the envelope!
I can’t wait to share more projects in a few weeks using this fun kit!
I hope you create something today! Thanks so much for stopping by!
