Hi all and a good morning to you.
It's Suzanne here, sharing a card this time. No Christmas card, though :-)
I needed a small piece to go along with a gift.

supplies used
from plate 77 the face is the icon of creation NSPL77
for single stamps: NSPL77 The face is the icon of creation
scrabble alphabet small SW K06094 

acrylic paint
linen ribbon
craft glue

As a base I used a gelli plate print from my stash (if you don't own a gelli printing plate you can use a glass plate or something to pull single prints, there are some videos on youtube for example where people show what you can use instead).
First I stamped the face on the upper left corner of the paper with stazon jet black and masked it. Then some acrylic paint has been sponged through various stencils (with the paint I prefer using cut-n-dry foam) and some more stamp images from the above mentioned plate were used (with stazon stone grey) for the background.
Finally a linen ribbon was adhered that I previously had covered with a layer of gesso mixed with craft glue, when dry I added a wash of acrylic paint. The scrabble letters were stamped on a piece of the same background print, cut out and glued down onto the ribbon.
Following a last-minute decision I joined the letters with some staples, coloured with a sharpie pen.
That's it for today.

Thank you ever so much for visiting and having a look around. I'd love to see you tomorrow and any other day to get inspiratons for what to do with all those gorgeous stamps and additional stuff :-)
See you soon ... hugs, Suzanne xx

Gebruikte stempels:

Stempel de afbeelding op een strook papier, knip daaraan met een figuurschaar een mooi  randjes. Kleur de vormpjes hier en daar in. 
Accentueer de rand met een goudstift. Knip strookjes met hetzelfde figuurrandje en pons daarin een leuk randje (eigen ontwerp!) Mat het geheel op een rode onderkaart, die je eventueel eerst bestempelt met een ijskristalletje en Versamark.
Zo kun je een Kerstkaart maken zonder specifieke Kerststempels.

Stamp the image on a strip of cardstock, cut a nice border with special scissors. Colour the image partly. Accentuate the borders with a gold pen.
Cut small strips with the same border and punch a nice pattern in them (self-made pattern!)
Mat everything on a red card, that can be stamped first with a small icecrystal and Versamark.
This way you can make a Christmascard without specific Christmas stamps.
