It's beginning to Smell a Lot like Christmas

September 05, 2023

 Hello Gerda Steiner Fans!  Christi from Scrapping For Tranquility here.  I am honored to finish up my Guest Designer time this time with one of my favorite stamp sets, Smell Like Christmas.

Not only does this set have some of the cutest mice but love all the cute sentiments.

When I saw this set I pictured exactly what scene I wanted to make.  I imagined being outside playing in the snow and someone bringing hot chocolate, with marshmallows and fresh baked cookies outside to you.... YUM!!!!  Just the smell alone makes you "float through the air" as if you remember being in one spot one minute and the next you are on top of cookies and hot chocolate.  I can smell them just sitting here at my computer.

I first took watercolor paper and Broken China Distress Oxide Ink and blended it for my background.  After that dried I used a snow flake stencil by Simon Says Stamps and Picket Fence Distress spray and made my snowflakes.  I colored with my Copics all my pieces assembled my card but wanting the little guy "smelling" the goodies to have the action of "floating",  I put him on a wobble.  Watch him in action below.

I have truly enjoyed the honor of being a  Guest Designer for Gerda Steiner Designs and hopefully I will see you all again!

Thank you for having me!
