Stamplifted NOEL

You know, sometimes you see a card and you just HAVE to copy it. I saw the original for this card on our corporate artwork bulletin board and had to make one. Love it!!

I did use different paper than the original creator. This card has the blue pattern from the Notebook paper packet, Moonstruck cardstock and White Daisy cardstock.

Stamp sets used are Essential Alphabet, and Feathery Flakes.

This technique is so fun to do, too. It's called stamp-kissing. I inked the N EL with Crystal Blue ink. Then using the small snowflake, I inked it in Moonstruck and stamped it directly onto the letter stamps. (Note: you have to have a very steady hand for this because the stamps slide very easily!) Then I stamped the whole thing on a piece of white cardstock. Beautiful! I added the large snowflake for the O and stuck a White Daisy bigger brad through the center of it. NOEL got layered on a piece of Moonstruck which has the edges distressed a bit. The small snowflake on the blue Notebook B&T is stamped randomly in second generation. After putting it all together, I thought it needed just another little something, so I added the tiny layered snowflake image in the lower corner. Perfect!

Have a great day!
