Grab your Stampin’ Blends and let’s make Christmas cards with alcohol markers that are quick and cute! 

I LOVE the Seasonal Chums set and realized I haven’t used it much this year.  So when I decided on a “snowfall” product of the week, I knew the cutie-pie snowman was up!

Why Not Make Christmas Cards with Alcohol Markers?

How do you like the snow? 

If you have the Ruffled dynamic embossing folder, it’s a pretty cool (no pun intended 😜) way to make snowbanks.  Just run your Whisper White through your Big Shot and trim along the top ruffle and POW!  Instant snow!

I don’t think I’ve told you lately how much I adore our Stampin’ Blends marker, have I?  Here’s why they’re a super way to colour…

  • Quick colouring.
  • Easy to use (yes, even for beginners!).
  • Fantastic colour coordination.
  • Seamless colour blending.
  • So many colours to choose from.

See all my tips in this blog post if you’re a bit shy about trying them.

I want to show you a close-up shot of my colour blending on little Frosty.

Have you tried to make Christmas cards with alcohol markers yet?

I think it probably took me about 7 1/2 minutes to get him stamped and coloured.  (Yup a bit like Goldilocks here.  Not 5, not 10, but RIGHT in the middle!)

Now I have to admit, it is Keep It Simple Sunday, and this card IS simple.  Honest. 

But there are a few more steps than normal.  So the supply list is a little longer too.  😬  But don’t you love the results?

Make Christmas Cards with Alcohol Markers

Let’s Make It

  1. Stamp snowman in Memento ink on scrap of Whisper White.  Colour with alcohol markers.  TIP: I used Light Smoky Slate and Light Pool Party along the left side of his body then used the Colour Lifter to blend out.  TIP: Since you are colour small areas, use the bullet tip side of the marker.
  2. Apply a wash of Wink of Stella over entire snowman body when finished colouring to add some sheen.
  3. Create snowbanks with the Ruffled Dynamic embossing folder and the 3” x 4” piece of White cardstock as outlined above. Glue to front bottom of folded card.
  4. Stick Frosty to left of “snowbanks” with dimensionals.
  5. Stamp your words in Shaded Spruce ink on the scrap of thick Whisper White cardstock.  Punch out with Starburst punch.  Punch out Real Red circle with 2 1/4” punch.  Layer together with liquid glue or SNAIL.
  6. Overlap piece of ribbon and attach to left side of circle with a glue dot.  Stick to top right of card with dimensionals.  TIP: overlap at least one dimensional on your ribbon to ensure it stays “stuck”.
  7. Add one red rhinestone to ampersand to finish off.

TADAH!  A fun card for ANYONE on your Christmas list!

The Seasonal Chums set is intended to be used for tags.  And they’re super that way.  But here’s another fabulous design I LOVE my friend Leslie shared showcasing the front and back nature of them.

Wanna craft up some snowman fun for yourself?  Here’s all the supplies I used so you can re-create Frosty.

 

Are you a snowman fiend?  Then this little guy might be right up your stamping alley.  There’s so many ways to colour him:  Stampin’ Write markers, watercolour pencils, your AquaPainter… 

But I predict your friends and family will LOVE HIM made with your Stampin’ Blends.   So pull ‘em out and make Christmas cards with alcohol markers and get ready for the WOW’s!
