Hello Everyone! Pamellia here with you today to do my very first Step by Step here at Frilly and Funkie! I hope you're not too sick of Christmas yet, because I want to share a fun holiday card with you that I made using a bunch of products that I just purchased from the Funkie Junkie Boutique!!
I included lots of high res pictures, so feel free to click on any image for a super sized version that you can zoom right it on! I hope you enjoy!
First up is this wonderful corrugated cardboard that I've been dying to get my hands on!! I flipped a piece over and tore off the backing in some random spots. Next I dry brushed on some white paint. Not a full coverage, just in some areas because it acts as a resist for the stains I applied next.
I rubbed Iced Spruce distress stain in the middle and Gathered Twigs around the outside and then I misted it with water so the colours would blend together nicely. The moisture made the edges of the cardboard curl up, giving the panel an amazing distressed look!!
I stamped on a design with a Tim Holtz stamp from the Distressed Damask set and some Ranger Archival ink Coffee. I also stamped some snowflakes with Iced Spruce, but they are hard to see.
For the top panel I used Tim Holt's Gothic stencil to lay down some texture paste and while the paste was still wet, I covered the paste with clear embossing powder. After the paste is dry, heat the embossing powder to coat the pattern with a nice gloss.
I sprayed the panel with Iced Spruced distress ink spray and then rubbed Gathered Twigs stains around the edges, spritzed with water and let it dry. The colour will easily rub off of the embossing powder leaving a nice white pattern.
I cut out the jumping reindeer from Tim Holtz Reindeer Flight, but instead of using the cut out piece, I took the negative piece and very carefully fussy cut around the edges to make this hollow reindeer. I coated it with glossy accents and Tarnished Brass distress glitter.
Instead of using ink pads for my trees, I dabbed the stamps with the stain dabbers in both Gathered Twigs and Iced Spruce giving the trees a water coloured look. I splattered some white and Iced Spruce with my paintbrush to look like snow.
For the sentiment, I inked only one word at a time, so I could flush them to the left margin of the sentiment frame without having to do any masking. Some more flicking of the Snow Cap and Iced Spruce.
I ended up layering some really dark brown card stock between the painted layers, just to add a little contrast. I dyed some seam binding to wrap the corners and make a bow. I used a Tim Holtz Gumdrop that I coloured with Sunshine Alcohol ink as the center of the bow. Lots of foam bits to give the card dimension.
I hope you enjoyed my tutorial . Please feel free to let me know if you have any questions and I would love to see any creations you make! There's still time to enter our current challenge "Winter Wishes", where we are looking for your shabby or vintage creations showing us what you love about the winter season!
