I must say, this was quite a challenge for me! I don't own a single bell stamp (gasp!) and while I could have downloaded something from the Silhouette store, I challenged myself to use Stampin' Up products. What do you think?
This White Christmas stamp set is so stinkin' cute! Love the little polar bear, the treescape and the darling bitty banner! On the focal piece, I stamped all the images with Memento black ink and used my Smoky Slate (light) Blendabilities marker to color the trees. I stamped the treescape a second time on Whisper White cardstock and trimmed it down to the treeline to make my snowy forest.
The polar bear was fussy-cut and given some glitz with Dazzling Diamonds. I gave the bitty banner some depth by coloring it with the lightest Coastal Cabana Blendabilities marker. It's just slightly darker than the Pool Party cardstock in the background and helps the banner stand out.
I used the only Christmas bells I had....mini jingle bells! While these are retired SU, I am certain they can be found at any craft store. I tied them onto my banner with some Cherry Cobbler ribbon and a glue dot.
This card is a different fold--opening just slightly off center. I scored the 4.25" x 11" piece of SMoky Slate cardstock at 3" and 8.5" to get the unique gate opening. One side is covered with a Smoky Slate pattern from the All is Calm DSP.
Of course, you know I couldn't stop there and did a little more stamping on the inside. Love that more and more of SU's sets are coming with coordinating sentiments for the front and inside of our cards.
I hope you'll join us over at Merry Monday! Be sure to stop by and check out the rest of the Design Team and their amazing work! Thanks for stopping by today, friends!
