Sweet Stamps- Vintage Christmas



  This week at the Sweet Stamps Challenge we are making Vintage Christmas Cards.


 This card was so hard to photograph!  I colored the Poinsettias/leaves with Spica Glitter pens- Oh how glimmery- love the Spica pens!!!
 I used Smoosh on the candle- still shimmery, but a different texture. I have to show you HOW I MASKED the outer white rim of the image.....
Stamp the image on a post-it and cut out the inside where I want to add distress ink:

 
Add on the distress ink. My SCS Stamp Addicts Blogging group (waving) has a Masking challenge for the month- how fun is that! I used Technique Junkies  Sanded Coordinations and Curled corners for this card.

Here are the Sweet Stamps products I used on my card:
Image- Poinsettia Candles HERE
Spica Glitter Pens: Melon, Olive, Red, Lipstick, Lemon and Peach HERE
Smoosh Moonlight HERE 
Ranger Distress Ink- Antique Linen and clear embossing Ink HERE
Ranger Queens Gold Embossing Powder HERE
Bo Bunny Father Christmas 6x6 HERE
Coordinations cardstock- Beach (Sandy Tans) and Scarlet (classy Reds) HERE
Damask Embossing folder  HERE
Ribbon Border die #103 by Marianne Designs HERE
Lace corner Deco Corner die by Cheery Lynn Designs HERE
