Hope You Can Cling To-Paper Tole


Over on Splitcoaststampers,  it is the month for the Hope You Can Cling To 2014 drive. Splitcoaststampers partner with UT MD Anderson Cancer Center. It is our time to make cards to benefit those affected with breast cancer. What a great cause and a great reason to make cards. Thousands will be mailed.

This is a card I made for Lydia/UnderstandBlue's challenge:Raise Me Up-the challenge is Paper Tole. I LOVE doing this technique. 
The tutorial can be on Splitcoaststampers. 

This is how I did it for those who haven't tried this technique: I stamped the image twice. On one of the images, you color and  cut out pieces you want to make 3D. I did the star, snowmen, and glove. Next, you will use a stylus on a foam pad and round your pieces. Afterward, you put your Glossy Accents on all the pieces. Let dry and then place the cut out pieces on top of the other image you stamped. It's easy, just a bit time consuming. I would do it again, that's for sure. 

The background sky was made by doing the Alcohol Marker Marbling Technique. It is also found on Splitcoaststampers under Tutorials.  It is really easy and fun. 

Recipe:
Stamps-The Peddler's Pack Stampworks/Fenced in Snowman
Paper-Bazzill cardstock/Icy Mint, Georgia Pacific white cardstock
Ink-Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories-Stylus, foam pad, Paper Shapers star punch, clear Wink of Stella, plastic bag for marbling, Copics-E55, E59, C1, YR02 and for background, B24 and BV08

Hi, Benzi! Your card looks just like the aurora borealis! Especially with those snowmen watching so wondrously at the one special star which eclipses even the aurora borealis. Thank you for sharing how the card was created. I especially like your shiny textures, and the great use of vibrant color on your snowy card! xo

Ooh, I love the snowmen peeking over the fence and the dimension you've achieved with this technique! And you've captured the gloss in your photo! That's almost impossible! Love that background and I have that in my pile of things to try. Too many fun techniques, not enough time!

So cute! The technique sounds like it'd take too much time to do a whole bunch of cards in this manner. Good for one special one, 'tho.
