I’ve wanted to make a Rudolph and Clarice card, and decided to combine it with 2 easy masking techniques! We’re getting down to the wire, and quick ideas that are great for fabulous cards are always helpful, right?
For the masking – super simple, use a babywipe to clean off areas before stamping; and stickynotes to simply cover areas without cutting out fancy masks! See how:
I used my Polychromos pencils on these….here are the colors:
I asked Facebook for terms to use for different kinds of snow shown in my video….and there wasn’t anything as specific as we have in my area for rain! So I’ll call this flurries……
And this is big wet snowflakes…..
And this has got to be called Sandy Snow, since it’s my most usual amount of snow on a Christmas card! ha!

Gorgeous cards Sandy and thank you for the snow lesson.
I also love to watch the snow falling, sometimes big ones and some days the little ones, all depending on the temperatuur.
Snow is beautiful, as long as I am inside LOL.
Thanks for sharing and have a great week!
Wonderful snow scenes, adore the cute reindeers, so fun looking. Great idea for the base snow, will save me lots of white coloured pencil in the future, thank you so much for the advice x
These are so fun Sandy!
These cards are darling! I hadn’t seen that stamp set before. Thank you for the video.
Such cute cards!! Thanks for all you do!! Such an inspiration!
Duh! (head slap) – why didn’t I think of using a white stamp pad to make a foreground of snow??? GREAT idea! I’m gonna have to try this one before breakfast!
And thank YOU, Sandy, for all you do – a few dollars a month is nothing, when I think of all the great ideas you bring into my life every week – I honestly don’t know what I’d do without you!
