Snowman Kisses with Joy Clair

Hello friends! I'm so excited to announce that I'll be guest designing for Joy Clair Designs this month. This first card uses one of their older digital sets called Snowy Greetings. I used it to make a fun Valentine themed card. I printed my snowman on mix media paper and colored it with Arteza Real Brush Pens. After die cutting, I inked the edges with vintage photo distress ink and added it to a background embossed with pine and embellished with a piece of burlap ribbon from my stash. A few red hearts and one of the fun sentiments from the set, and wa-la a winter themed Valentine!

Supplies and Tools:

  • Snowy Greetings Digital Stamp Set (Joy Clair)
  • Mix Media Paper (Canson)
  • Arteza Real Brush Pens
  • Evergreen Embossing Folder (Fun Stampers Journey)
  • Nested Heart Cutups (The Cat's Pajamas)
  • Dotted Oval Dies (Sizzix)
  • Vintage Photo Distress Ink (Ranger) 
  • Foam Mounting Tape
  • Burlap Ribbon
