Warm Wishes

I really love this next stamp by Deep Red Stamps.

You can find this mailbox stamp at A Cherry On Top. I stamped it with Versa Mark ink and heat embossed it with silver sparkle embossing powder by Stampendous onto Strathmore watercolor paper. Then using my distress markers from Ranger Industries I was able to color in the mailbox and even add some shading to it. I love the distress markers as you can probably tell from all my posts. I find them so easy to use and I quickly get the results I'm looking for. 

I used Glossy Accents by Ranger Industries with glitter from Stampin Up for the snow parts of the image. After I was finished coloring, I die cut the image out using a Spellbinders die and then matted it on the next biggest size die with some very old My Mind's Eye paper. 

The red paper is a wood grain look and it is from We R Memory Keepers. The green paper on the bottom is by Making Memories, which is not meant for Christmas cards but works well with the distress ink markers that I have. The dry embossed piece of cardstock is by Bazzill. The embossing folder is by Darice and I lightly inked the edges with distress ink Iced Spruce. To finish the card off I applied a sentiment sticker from Hobby Lobby and a glittery present by Recollections.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I love to read your comments and so appreciate you leaving them for me.
