More Christmas cards

This is a 3D pop up card.  I stamped, colored, cut out pieces with matching dies and then attached to pop up center. The top of the card I used a die.  www.Stampendous.com will have directions for assembly. Once you do the first one the rest are easy.

Making the card
I stamped out the images, colored the various stamped images then used the dies to cut out the images.  I assembled the snowman by attaching the bottom first then the sweater and hands.  The hat has insert for head. The snowflakes get attached to the other tabs. 
The sentiment is from Stampendous.  
I used red and blue paper from my stock.  The paper I used for the snowman was a thicker white paper. I find it holds up better when I color the images. It does not have to be copic paper.   Make sure to use stazon ink when stamping the images.  It does not bleed when blending the colored pencils.  
If you use copic markers use copic paper.  



This is a pop up 3D card.  I used prismacolor pencils and gamsol to blend. 
The top of the card is a die by "docrafts" product number below.  I received them as a gift and do not know where to purchase them.  I hope this information helps.  

The card is assembled in steps. 
Inside card is made by using pop up set to attach snowman pieces. Here's the item...
This is a universal pop up die which makes it easy to use with other stamp sets.

I enjoyed making this card.  


Stampendous snowmen Christmas cards

I used supplies in my craft room so the paper ribbon and stickers are older. I'm sure you have similar supplies in your favorite colors. 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I made the following cards with Stampendous stamps. 
 The package says "cling whispered wishes" I'm not sure if that's the name for the snowman.  I do know it was in the latest catalog.  
I used prismacolor pencils to color and gamsol with paper stumps to blend my coloring.   
The sentiment is also from Stampendous. 
The accent paper came from paper pack on clearance along with the ribbon and snowflake sticker.  


  
The above snowman is also from Stampendous. I do have the number. It was from last year.  The set looks like the picture below. It comes with a stencil so you can color the background and not the stamped image.  

I used the stencil on the following cards. I tried the darker image first and found I liked a lighter touch.  I added Stampendous chunky white embossing enamel to accent the snow. 

The product number is listed as FREG021.  It makes 3D snow but do not heat too long and use a juicy versamark pen.   

Christmas Cards

I have been away for a while.  Who am I kidding it's been more than just a while. My life took me in different directions however the thought of spending money on Christmas Cards when I have supplies  and tools sitting in my craft room waiting seemed unreasonable.  The drive to make cards came back to me so here's a few. 

I used Stampin Up "Scentsational Season" making sure to heat emboss the scents.   The paper is cherry cobbler and white.  I embossed the white card with a snowflake theme folder.  The die for the sentiment is from spellbinder a (labels four). The candy cane stickers came from a local craft store.  


Here's a few more using the same stamp set. 



I used silver paper to make the cookie sheet.  The ribbon is a silver glitter from a Christmas variety pack.  

Another version with different paper accents.  


I layered accents before adding scented stamped images.  The paper came from various paper packs I found on sale.  The card and ink is soft suede from Stampin up.
