You Light Up My Christmas
I didn’t have any Stampendous critters stamps in my stash… or more likely I haven’t unpacked them yet, so I used the Simon Says Stamp December Card Kit Instead. Whenever I get a new card kit from SSS I like to challenge myself to just use what’s in the kit. I find this easier to come up with ideas and to make a lot of cards quickly. You can see more of what I am talking about by checking out the Stack of Thank You’s post I did a few months back.
This kit is filled with so many fun goodies and likely to sell out fast, so don’t delay in a little crafty retail therapy! I used the stamp set, with some masking and fussy cutting. I used one of the patterned papers and some fun Raspberry Tart stickles for the reindeer’s nose. I just LOVE to create non traditional holiday cards. This card will be perfect for Chris 😉
I didn’t get a chance to play with the Chibitronics beginner light kit that is included, but that is definitely next on my list!
I used watercolor pencils and a clear Wink of Stella glitter pen in place of a waterbrush or paint brush. For the glitter on the bows I used glossy accents and ultrafine crystal glitter, this way there is some added dimension. I did the same to add the little accent dots in the background here and there.
In the picture above you can see all the shimmer on this adorable reindeer! I also added some gold stickles to his collar. The teal ink pad is SSS Scuba and the Pinkish Red is one of my faves, SSS Hot Lips. I love the sprinkle of hearts and snowflakes to make a fun background!
Remember, with the SSS Card kit you can SUBSCRIBE with no obligation and receive them monthly for $ 24.95, or purchase them each month for $29.95 (while supplies last).
Ok- so now it’s time for YOU to enter the challenge. Remember, Critters is the theme so have fun! Just by playing along and linking up your project to the SSS Wednesday Challenge post you can qualify to enter a $50 shopping voucher to the Simon Says Stamp store.
