Home For the Holidays




Today's card is using Train Postcard Stamp from Stampendous.  I love this stamp because all of the collage work is done for me.  All that needs to be done is color it, mount it to a card and you're done!
Here is how the card was made;
1.  Stamp Train Postcard on white cardstock with Tuxedo Black Memento ink twice so you have one to use as a mask.
2.  Cut the oval and holly out, place it on top of the other stamped piece and sponge the collage part with Antique Linen and Tea Dye Distress Inks.
3.  Color the train portion with blues.
4.  Sprinkle Shabby White Embossing Enamel on the sponged collage portion and heat from underneath so the embossing powder doesn't fly off.
5.  Stamp the right side of a light blue card with Delicate Snowflake with Stonewash Adirondack ink.
6.  Sprinkle the right side with Shabby White Embossing Enamel and heat from underneath.
7.  Use the Spellbinders Shapeabilities Grateful Lattice and cut from light blue paper, sponge with Stonewashed ink. 
Grateful Lattice
8.  Rub with Versamark ink, sprinkle with Shabby White Embossing Enamel and heat from underneath.
9.  Attach to the left side of the card with 3 in 1 glue and cut off the over hang.
10.  Glue a bow to made from May Arts Ribbon to the bottom right side.

I love this image! My hands don't want to type right today. I love the pale blue you did with the die and then the trees. So pretty.
