Rubbernecker Stamps



For my card, I used the Rubbernecker snowman image called "Blake" (SKU:593-01) from the 2011 Winter Holiday Collection. I stamped it Marvy black dye onto X-Press It cardstock. I colored the image with Copic markers and cut it out with my Cutter-bee scissors.

Then, on a piece of white cardstock, I brayered Vivid Bermuda Blue, Adirondack Sail Boat Blue and Adirondack Stonewashed dye inks to make the winter sky. I added some white dots for snow with a white gel pen. I then tore some white cardstock to make the ground, highlighted with Stickles for some glistening.

I place the snowman onto the winter scene. I added a shadow with a Copic marker, and then stamped Blake again on some light yellowish-beige cardstock to paper piece the sign. With a Memento Tuxedo Black marker, I wrote "Happy Freezin' Season". I like that the image allows you to stamp or hand write whatever sentiment you like on the sign.

A sheer white ribbon and a snowflake brad complete the card. It is framed with black and white cardstock.

Nice card. Blank signs are certainly useful although I admit to being one who is generally at a loss for words so I tend to need the help.
