Happy Christmas From Norman

Hello blog visitors, Kirsten here with two cards featuring this happy chap from Hobby Art’s
 Norman & Friends collection of rubber stamps.


I stamped twice with Tuxedo Black Memento ink onto smooth white card stock & coloured with Promarker alcohol ink pens.


For the first card I dry embossed a square of white card with an embossing folder. Then I used a stencil brush to very lightly apply Festive Berries distress ink. This is an instance where less is most definitely more, so don’t push your brush onto either the ink pad or the card, just sweep it over the top & repeat until you get the look you want.
I used a Spellbinders die to cut a shape around Norman, attached him with foam pads & then added the embellishments.


This time I used shades of blue & green after finding the patterned paper in my stash. I  heat embossed the white card with WOW Clear Sparkle EP on the snowflake images, but for some reason it didn’t work on the left hand side, so I die cut some snowflakes & attached them with white, glittered brads. I used a blue grey Promarker to create the effect of snow drifts & applied glitter glue on top. This stops Norman looking as if he was floating in mid-air. I used Glossy Accents to highlight a few areas on both cards, such as the star on the tree & some of the diamond shapes on the patterned paper below.
