Hi Stampers, welcome to my Creative & Chaotic craft room! Today’s project features the Flurry of Wishes and another Broke Stampers Unite Challenge. This weeks challenge is a winter/Christmas themed card.
Before we get started with this card, there is one thing you need to realize. I am the post it note queen. I buy them in bulk at the beginning of every school year. I have them everywhere. My desk at work, my desk at home, all over my house, I even have a journal type book filled with different types of sticky notes for all types of list making.
Most people are familiar with Post It brand sticky notes or any number of brands of sticky notes. I have found out that people don’t realize, Post It brand makes a sticky tape. if you haven’t discovered this product, look for it the next time you go shopping. If you’re a teacher buy extra!
This stuff is great. The entire surface is tacky. It peels off like a breeze. This product is great for many masking techniques. It is what I used to make my straight lines on my card.
I used my grid paper to make sure I had everything aligned properly. I then place a strip of tape across my card. This provides a mask and helps hold the card in place.
I used my Basic Black marker to trace the edge of the tape. This gave me a border for my verse. I randomly stamped snowflakes over the entire card using my black ink pad. I removed the tape. (Don’t throw the tape away, it can be used several times.) I used my basic black marker to ink the verse and stamped it within the border.
This another simple card that can be made for mass production at Christmas time. Lay out several cards on your grid paper at once and stamp them all at the same time, This will save you even more time. I can comfortable get 4 cards done at once in just minutes. Talk about the ultimate Creative Chaos time saver!
