Hi, Farm Fans! It’s Andrea back with my second post as guest designer. Do you like a bargain? I love BOGO deals, and today I have a 2-for-1 deal for you: 2 cards from 1 stamp. Woot woot!


Isn’t that penguin from Holiday Wishes too cute?! I stamped him twice onto Bristol Smooth paper with Versafine Onyx Black Ink and colored him with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. I added some details with a white gel pen and sparkle with clear Wink of Stella.


To create the background for the blue card, I ink-blended with Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean, Blueprint Sketch, and Wilted Violet Distress Inks. The Holiday Wishes set comes with two snowflake images, and I stamped the smaller one with water onto the background. Unfortunately, I think I used too much water as they look like blobs not snowflakes. I also flicked on some water and blotted that dry before flicking on some watered-down white paint.


Once my background was dry, I heat-embossed the sentiment from Holiday Wishes and adhered the panel to a black cardbase. I die-cut a snowy hill, blended on a hint of Tumbled Glass, and added that to the background. I adhered a few presents before popping up that cute penguin with foam tape. I used my Copic markers to create the shadow under my images. One clear sequin above the “i”, and this card was done.


For the red card, I first heat-embossed some of the small snowflakes with white glitter embossing powder before ink-blending. The colors of distress ink I used are Worn Lipstick, Festive Berries, and Fired Brick. Unfortunately, some of the embossing powder flaked off while I was ink-blending (The glitter in the powder makes the images a bit textured.). Next time, I would probably ink-blend first and then heat-emboss. Again, I flicked on some water and watered-down white paint. I also flicked on some Shimmer Spritz.


I adhered the background to a white card and added a die-cut hill on top. Before adhering the hill, I blended on a bit of Cracked Pistachio. After popping up the penguin with foam tape, I added a shadow underneath him with Copics. Using the same white glitter embossing powder, I heat-embossed the sentiment onto black cardstock. I bannered both ends, added foam tape to the center, and adhered the strip to my card. Thank you so much for stopping by!


See ya next week!
