Rudolph Day July 16

Hello there to all my crafty friends and to my new follower.....Janina, thank you for joining me.

Well, it's that time once again, yes, it's Rudolph day over at Scrappy Mo's.  I'm well ahead this year with my Christmas cards, so no panicking for me this November:)  Here's this month's card:



I started by stamping the Inkylicious Winter Lodge onto stamping card using Versafine Black Onyx and then coloured it using a variety of inks and pencils.  Once I was happy with the finished image, I then used the outer part of the Large Bauble Stencil by Inkylicious to create the bauble shape around it.  I masked the Lodge and then coloured in the sky around it using Distress Blue print sketch and Memento Rosebud. I used a little Adirondack Denim just around the very edge to emphasize the bauble shape.  At this point, I then masked off the bauble using the inner part of the stencil to dust around the outside using the Rosebud ink.   I used Fluffy Puffy Stuff to add snow to the roof top and to the Christmas trees. I then mounted the card onto layers of black and white card to frame it.  I wanted quite a bold sentiment as I have quite a large space to fill so I used 'Winter Wonderland' by Inkylicious and heat embossed it in silver.  Although my card was finished at this point, it was still missing something, so I added the silver corner die cuts,  These were made using a Memory Box corner die.  The corner dies filled in the missing space beautifully and I was then happy with the end result. I added a pink ribbon bow to add the finishing touch.

Take care of yourselves and I hope to be back with you soon x

  1. Hi Sandra,
    what a very wonderfully created Rudolf card.
    I love this fantatic design, and that cottage looks so real.
    Another of your super inking techniques I think.
    Those silver corners are very lovely.

  13. Simply beautiful. I watched one of the Inkylicious ladies on the craft show that you sent the link, make a similar card to this. Wonderful to see your gorgeous card with these images. I like the emphasis at the edge of the ornament, it certainly draws the eye right into this lovely & serene snowy cabin. TFS

  18. Hi Sandra, oh this is so pretty! I have bought all my Inkylicous Christmas stamps ready to make a start in September - I have to do a few family Birthday & Anniversary cards before then, so Christmas will have to wait for now. Thanks once again for the inspiration and encouragement (I read your reply to my last comment - thank you x) I don't have a blog, I just plod along on my own. This is an absolutely beautiful card! x
