i have two favorite holiday collections this year. the first is the Christmas Wishes collection by Pinkfresh Studio. Kinnari is such a lovely person and i have loved her amazing collections since they first came out! the second is Wish Season by Fancy Pants (best company name ever?). they are both offbeat and funky, and with slightly unusual color palettes.
anyhow, i knew i wanted to use the Hero Arts Winter Scene stamp set, because i'm a bit obsessed with snow globes/jars at the moment! so i started by stamping the jar onto cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, which is always what i reach for to do base stamping. then i added the snow in silver, and the deer in Memento Luxe Toffee Crunch, which is a color i am completely in love with.
then of course i added the tree and star from Fancy Pants' Mixed Shapes Puffy Stickers.
for the card itself, i used Lawn Fawn's Let's Bokeh in the Snow paper, and chose pieces of Pinkfresh Studio's Christmas Wishes 6x6 paper pad as accents. attached those bits and the jar to the card, added some FA LAs to it from Fancy Pants' Wish Season ABC Black Puffy Letters and a wee star to finish it off.
the best part of this card is that it's very easy to make slight variations, as seen below.
