30 Days of Christmas, Day 8

Welcome back to the 30 Days of Christmas! Today is Day 8 and I am pleased to use two of the new stamps from this year's Technique Junkies holiday release. The base of this stamp is the Winter Wonderland Stamp. I colored the top of this stamp with Stormy Sky Distress Ink, and the bottom of the stamp with Iced Spruce Distress Ink using the Direct-to-Stamp method. For texture,there is a dot of Stickles on each of the top snowflakes, and painted Bone Stone Effects Dimensional Medium (Art Anthology) over the snowy areas.

To add more dimension, I re-inked the bottom of the stamp with Iced Spruce ink again and stamped on a second piece of paper. I cut out a few trees and popped them on the base piece:

To finish the card, I used the Winter Wonderland Sayings (Set of 3) along the top, creating banners for each of the words.  I love that I can make these non-denominational, like the card above, or straight-out Christmas Cards by using the Merry Christmas Greeting from the same set. 

Until tomorrow--
