Winter Post

To stamp the reindeer on this card, I first inked the stamp with Ruby Red classic ink and then, using a sponge dauber, I sponged Champagne Mist shimmer paint on the stamp and then stamped. I love the shimmery effect if leaves! I also sponged some of the shimmer paint on my Kraft Taffeta Ribbon. When using the paint on fabric, the manufacturer recommends heat setting it. I used my heat gun. Just be careful not to burn the taffeta. The layout for this card is from Stampers 411.

  • Stamps: Winter Post, Four the Holidays
  • Paper: Holiday Lounge designer series paper and Taken with Teal, Ruby Red and Sahara Sand cardstock
  • Ink: Ruby Red Classic and VersaMark ink pads
  • Accessories: Champagne Shimmer Paint, Kraft Taffeta Ribbon and Silver Emboss powder
Happy Stampin',
