It's Beginning to Look a lot Like Christmas......

I know it's still a few months until Christmas, but I am having so much fun with these new holiday stamps from Rubber Soul... so I had to get them out and play! Do you like this sketch? The inspiration card came from Stampin' Up!'s new Holiday Mini, page 12. This is today's challenge from my Blogger's Challenge group (check out everyone's version by clicking on the links on my sidebar!). I have a full day to stamp and I am SO EXCITED! So... you'll probably see several posts from me soon!

For this card, I started by picking out my cardstock and printed paper. The card base is Always Artichoke (SU). The red snowflake paper is by Making Memories (Deck the Halls). I love this paper because it's all glittery IRL. The other two papers are actually from the same sheet (front and back). I don't know who makes it because it's not labeled (weird!) except for a sticker that reads 'St. Nick Vintage Snowflake'. The scalloped circle is cut from Ruby Red CS (SU). I added a little antiquing to the edges of the patterned paper with a sponge and Sahara Sand ink (SU).

Don't you just LOVE this little car! It just makes me smile! This stamp is from the Joy to the World clear stamp set from Rubber Soul. I stamped the image twice (once in black and once in artichoke). I cut out just the tree and added pop dots to adhere. The sentiment is from the Winter Wonderland set (the same set as the camping stamps from my earlier post). I colored in the car with my Ruby Red Stamp 'n Write marker (SU).

I added snowy dots around the scallop with a white Souffle pen. This was the first time I've used it and... I LOVE this pen! It's a lot more opaque than my other white gel pens. It comes out very liquid-y (but super easy to control) and then dries to a nice satiny finish with dimension. Fun!

To finish off the card, I added some twill ribbon (SU) and attached a snowflake charm from Karen Foster. Love it!
