Thanks for choosing such an awesome stamper for our Featured Stamper today, Mudder!
42,000 hours later I have finally finished my Featured Stamper card in honor of the one and only PATTY CAKES, aka patsmethers! Talk about a challenge! Pat's amazing creations are always so wonderfully detailed and always made from her BIG heart for someone who is dear to her. It only took me 42,000 hours to make this card, but, it was so worth it for our sweet Patty Cakes!
I chose a blend of various projects from Pat's gallery. In her Christmas album, she uses this adorable Relaxed Snowman a lot. I happen to have and love this image, too, so I cased him from her Christmas ornament here.
I also love the vast array of easel cards Pat makes. I wanted to go the extra mile, like Pat does in everything she does, and try my hand at making this four-drawer easel card. I found a fabulous tutorial by Kristine on her blog, Ink Something. These boxes are an origami fold, which were fun and easy to make, and I didn't need to have another die of some sort on hand to make this project!
My snowflakes and snow on the ground are heat embossed with white detail embossing powder. For the snow on the ground, I also added some dimensional snowflakes by rubbing two styrofoam balls together to create my flakes and gluing them on top of the heat embossed snow.
The knobs I used on the drawers are jingle bells!
CONGRATULATIONS, Pat! If you ever make it to Michigan, I'd love to meet you in person and be added to the awesome gallery you have of all the stampers you've met!!
