Let It Snow

Chris here sharing this fun winter layout using Sin City Stamps! I love using my stamps on layouts.
I started with these stamps:

 So let's get started.

Supplies used:
Sin City Stamps- Winter Wonderland
Ranger Archival Ink - Red Geranium
Cardstock - White, Pink, Red
Patterned Paper - KI Memories
Sizzix Die- Tim Holtz Tag
Red Jute
Punch- Martha Stewart Snowflake

To Start off I cut three 3 1/4 inch squares.
Onto each of these square I stamped an image from the Winter Wonderland set using the Red Geranium Ink.  I then matted the stamped images onto red cardstock and then onto an 11 1/4 x 4 inch  piece of pink cardstock.
I just love the red/pink color combination.

I then cut my patterned papers into 1 x 11 1/2 inch strips  and attached them to a 12 x 12 piece of red cardstock.

I double matted my photo first in red then pink and added my matted stamp images and photo to my layout.

I then Stamped my Let It Snow title on white cardstock and matted it onto red cardstock and then onto my die cut tag.

I added some red jute to the tag and attached to my layout.  I added some punched snowflakes and added embellishments to the center of the snowflakes.  How you enjoyed this layout!

Stamp yourself a Welcome Wreath

Chris here sharing this Christmas Wreath I created using Penguins on Ice Stamps set from Sin City Stamps.
Notice that branch just above the Warmest Wishes greeting?  That is what I used to create the wreath.

To get started you will need:

Penguins on Ice Stamp Set- Sin City Stamps
Peg Round Christmas Stamp Set- Sin City Stamps
Patterened Paper -  Graphic 45
Ranger Archival Ink - Jet Black
Tim Holtz Distress Ink- Forest Moss, Mowed Lawn, Peeled Paint, Fired Brick
Tim Holtz Distress Markers- Pine Needles, Vintage Photo
Water Brush
Corner Punch-Marvy
Baker's Twine
5 1/2 inch square card base

I started by covering my card base top with a 5 1/2 inch square of my patterened paper.

I then cut a 5 1/4 inch square of the cardstock.
I lightly drew a 4 inch circle onto the cardstock to use as the guide for my stamping.

I started stamping my branch on the line.  I kept stamping around the circle overlapping the stamp as needed to fill in my wreath.

 I then started coloring my wreath, first stamping my Forest Moss ink pad on my craft sheet and using the water brush to pick up the ink. I randomly started coloring in the leaves. I then heat set my coloring (and in between each color change) and continued on with the Mowed Lawn and the Peeled Paint Inks.
I then filled in any remaining leaves with my Pine Needle Distress Marker and the branches with my Vintage Photo Distress Marker.

To color in the berries I used my Fired Brick Distress Ink. I then rounded my corners with the punch and attached to my card.

I added my bow made from Baker's Twine and stamped the MERRY CHRISTMAS greeting and attached it to the front of my card.

Hope you enjoyed this Card!
