Happy Holidays Birdhouses Cards by Steph Ackerman

Posted on November 23 2020

Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here today getting ready for Christmas and we are we are collaborating with Crackerbox/Suzy stamps this month.
Silver/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper and Saphire/Saphire Starstruck were cut to size then embossed with a Christmas Cuttlebug embossing folder.  I used a piece of sandpaper to lightly sand the embossed words giving both panels a slightly distressed appearance.
Using black ink, I stamped the Christmas Birdhouse on 2 pieces of white cardstock.  One of the images was die cut with a Spellbinders oval die and one was cut into a rectangle shape.  Both images were colored with Copic Markers and then inked with oxide inks.  
Ranger Liquid Pearls were used to color the ornaments on the oval image.
The Silver panel was matted with Emerald/Emerald Starstruck Foiled Paper then adhered to a white card.  A glittery ribbon was wrapped around the card and the oval image, which had been matted with Sapphire/Gold Glossy Foiled Paperwas added to the card with foam adhesives for dimension.
Small snowflakes were die cut from Silver/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper and added about the card.  Nuvo Crystal Drops were used to create the snow under the tree and on the branches.
My next card uses the rectangle image which was matted with Silver Foiled Paper then adhered to the card.
Nuvo Drops were used to simulate the snow and the snowflakes about the card.
Are you ready for Christmas yet?
Thanks for stopping by.
