Sleigh Ride

I'm back with another guest design post for Sweet n Sassy Stamps!

Today's card uses two of their stamp sets:  

I started by die cutting a circle and masking off the moon. Then I sponged some distress inks over my circle, spritzed with water, and heat set. I removed the mask and stamped the tree/sleigh using my stamping platform to get good coverage. Last of all I splattered some white paint for faux snow.

Here's a closer view of that wonderful plaid using one of the texture tiles stamps!

  • Texture Tiles 4 (Sweet n Sassy Stamps)
