I KNOW! I told you it was so good! Of course, I had to pair it (no pun intended!) with one of my other faves Sewing Box-Christmas! I had this idea about a pair of mittens, but the set comes with the one image seen on the right. I heard this idea long ago on Splitcoast (when I was a beginner) about stamping a mirrored image, but I didn't quite understand it at the time! It popped into my head today, and this is what I did...
I stamped the image directly onto an acrylic block with Memento Rich Cocoa ink, then quickly slapped a piece of cardstock on top. I won't lie, it takes some practice and some extra cardstock! Ohh, but when you get that good image, you might just jump up and down! Since I was covering it with patterns from Nordic Winter, I knew it didn't have to be perfect!
I can barely believe that I stamped that background! Claire's wonderful images make it easy to create one just like patterned paper! The teeny heart and sentiment are also from Nordic Winter.
Next up is a card with the "stamp kissing" technique using Nordic Winter...
I inked a tree from Teeny Trees with VersaColor Bamboo ink, and then stamped this Nordic Winter pattern right onto the stamp with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Crushed Olive.
I then stamped the image on the cardstock, and cut it out with Spellbinders Beaded Oval Nestabilities. The snowflakes are also from Nordic Winter, and the dotted impression plate on the "hills" is from A Muse Studio. Little Liquid Pearl dots are scattered about the card!
I could have kept going...and going....and going with Nordic Winter, but there are some other ladies who want to share projects with you today! Be sure to check them out! I will try not to be rude by cutting to the head of the line to see, too!
