I start by coloring the wood shape, here I colored the entire shape with a yellow marker followed with a few swipes of color directly from VersaMagic chalk ink pads. Allow to dry for a few minutes, or gently pat with a paper towel and move on to rubber stamping with a StazOn ink pad.
I also made a night time snow scene with this stamp by changing the colors and applying white snow splatter (apply white acrylic paint on a toothbrush, spraying the paint by bending the bristles.)
Glue a magnet on the back and give it a coat of sealer and you've got a quick and easy handmade gift. I use e-6000 glue for the magnet, and a simple wipe-on sealer such as mod podge.
Happy Holidays :)

There are also a few site changes as I am adding new sections, including handmade pendants, magnets and gift items along with a terrarium craft section with flower-soft and miniature garden supplies.
All KrystalKraft acrylic shapes have now been sold out and discontinued and I am working on removing that page link from all sections.

Winter Snow Pine Tree Rubber Stamped Christmas Card with Masking and Sponging Ink Coloring Technique
First I put the paper I was stamping on down, then the paper mask over the area I wanted to look like snow on the ground, then rubber stamped over it using Memento Black. I made sure that the ground part of the image stamped onto my mask, so when I moved the paper mask all that was left was my rubber stamped image missing the ground area of the artwork. I used a sponge dauber and Memento "London Fog" gray ink pad and gently applied ink in an upward motion over my paper mask. I moved the paper mask to a different spot and repeated the ink application with the sponge.
I prepared background paper for this card using the same paper masking method above and also using a snowflake paper punch as a mask.
I used a Gelly Roll white gel pen to trace along the tops of the trees and make dots all over the image.
Hope everyone had a great holiday season! Now that it's over I can get back to being a little less busy and a little more creative :)
