Wishing You Were Here

Hello, again!  It's Andrea back with you today.  I don't know about you, but I'm not quite ready to stop using my Christmas stamps.  However, instead of making a holiday card with them, I created a "missing you" type card instead.  

Wishing You Were Here card by Andrea Shell | Stamps and Dies by LDRS Creative

For my project I used the North Pole - Critter Stamps and Dies (currently on sale!), Snowy Day Border Die Set, Wishing You sentiment set, and Winter Land Paper Pack.

I stamped the adorable polar bear and sign from North Pole with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored them with Copics.  After die-cutting the images, I added some highlights with a white gel pen, some sparkle with clear Wink of Stella, and some shine with Glossy Accents on the bear's eyes and nose.  Onto the sign I stamped a sentiment from Wishing You with Versafine Onyx Black ink and clear heat-embossed it.

I trimmed the polka dot paper from the Winter Land Paper Pack to 4" x 5 1/4" and adhered it to a white card.  From white glitter paper, I die-cut the snowflake border from the Snowy Day Border Die Set.  Using the coordinating die, I die-cut a snowy hill from white cardstock.  After adhering both die-cuts to my card, I added my stamped images, popping up the bear with foam tape.  With my Copics I added some shading underneath the bear.

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope I've inspired you to look for ways to use your Christmas stamps for non-holiday projects.  If you'd like more inspiration, be sure to check out our YouTube channel, Instagram account, and Facebook page.  Also, don't forget to subscribe to the newsletter, so you don't miss out on any special discounts or sales!
