I was lucky enough to receive a stamp set to sneak peek for Simon Says Stamp's STAMPtember Stamp party.
Santa and his surfboard were masked, some reserved die-cut cloud masks were positioned in the sky area, and the sky was airbrushed with a B21 Copic marker and the airbrush system. The masks were removed, the clouds were detailed, and the sea and the sandy beach were colored with Copic markers. A White Inkssentials Gel pen (Ranger) was used to add some white caps and motion to the sea. A White Gelly pen (Sakura) was used to add a white highlight to the surfboard.
White Glossy cardstock (Ranger) was die-cut with the Polaroid Cover-up die (Die-namics). A strip of washi tape (source unknown) was added. The Polaroid Cover-up was positioned over the beach scene and layered onto a red A2 card.
White patterned cardstock was die-cut with the cloud bubble die, one of the dies included in the Talk Bubbles 2 die set (Simon Says Stamp). After a bit of masking, "Warm Christmas Wishes", the sentiment included in the stamp set was stamped onto the cloud bubble.
I decided that an additional sentiment was needed and found the perfect one "all is calm" on a Christmastime Remnant Rub (Ranger). An old QuicKutz die was used to die-cut white cardstock, stamped with "Ho, Ho, Ho" stamp (Hero Arts) with Lady Bug Memento ink (Tsukineko/Imagine Crafts). "All is calm" was rubbed onto the stamped die-cut, adhered over the washi tape, and two red rhinestones were added to finish the card.
Thank you for visiting today!
