I'm a big fan of all over stamped backgrounds. Today I stamped the snowmen, greeting, and snowflakes from the Snow Much Stamp set included in the January 2019 Card Kit all over the Island Blue Cardstock from the kit, colored in the images with Polychromos colored pencils and finished the card with some simple detailing. I love how Polychromos color over dark cardstock. The effect is amazing!
The key to success with this technique is to make sure and use a stamp positioner tool. I started the design by stamping the "Snow Much" sentiment from the Snow Much Stamp Set with clear embossing ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder.
Snowmen from the Snow Much Stamp Set were stamped with Versafine Onyx Black Ink. I left the stamps in the stamp positioner and colored them in with Polychromos. This dulls the stamped lines so once I was done coloring images I would place the panel back in the MISTI and stamp the images again. This gives the nice, bold black stamped line! I repeated this multiple times to fill in all the edges of the card around the large greeting. I just love these snowmen!
Once I had the snowmen stamped and colored it was time to fill in the "white space" with snowflakes. I took images from the Snow Much Stamp Set and stamped them with clear embossing ink before heat embossing with white embossing powder. An additional sentiment from the stamp set was stamped on black cardstock with clear embossing ink, heat embossed with white embossing powder, trimmed into a thin strip, and adhered to the card as shown.
White pen detail was added throughout the design to add highlights and interest to the snowmen. The white pen also comes in the January kit!
Finally, I finished the card with Nuvo Crystal Drops in White Blizzard in the center of the open circles and some of the snowflakes. Glossy Accents was added to the carrot noses.
