Wandering Words

Wandering Words is a fun set from the Stampin' Up! Holiday Mini and it spans several holidays…always a good thing!  I have wanted a Santa and his flying reindeer stamp for a long time, so I was thrilled when I saw it!  I love the curve on it, too…just perfect for flying in the air!

This is a card that has been on my mind for a while.  I just showed my Stamp Clubs how to do the Easel Card last week (I'll show that card on Friday).  This one was a little more labor intensive.

I started by punching a 1 1/4 circle from a post-it note and applying it over the White Glossy card stock.  I brayered Bashful Blue Classic Ink all over the White Glossy paper, then removed the post it note.  I stamped the Santa and reindeer with Basic Black on the colored background.  It is layered on Whisper White.  I had a piece of the Iridescent Ice glitter technique left over from another project, using the Petals A Plenty embossing folder.  I punched a Real Red snowflake from the Jumbo Snowflake and placed a silver mini brad in the center.

I rolled the Neighborhood Jumbo Wheel on Whisper White, then used my AquaPainters and Stampin' Write markers to color in the houses.  I used So Saffron in the windows, Sahara and, Creamy Caramel, Close to Cocoa, Going Gray and Real Red.  I cut out each house individually, then placed them on the snow covered "lawn".  Two Silver Mini Brads on the top of the tallest house is what holds the base of the easel card in place.  i added Crystal Effects and Dazzling Diamonds glitter to the snow line and the top of the houses.  LOVE the sparkle!

These Easel cards are so much fun.  They are easy to mail because they fold up and fit in a standard sized envelope!

I hope you and you family have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday!
