Winter village

It’s been a while (I think!) since these little Dylusions stamps had an airing but they were my first thought when I saw that the theme for this week’s Sunday Stampers was red.

P1060374I’ve used a piece of corrugated card for the base and ripped off some of the paper that covers the corrugations leaving just enough to stamp the moon. I then used a piece of bubble wrap and blobbed it all over to create a snowy effect.

The houses were stamped onto white card and coloured with Promarkers. I’ve highlighted the rooftops with a white gel pen and also a clear glitter pen. The toadstool has some blobs of clear Stickles.


I also stamped the moon onto card and coated it with crystal clear glitter.

P1060376The words are from a new set I purchased from Etsy.


I added a little more white acrylic paint along the bottom of the card allowing it to go up to the doorsteps of the houses. I used Iced Spruce distress ink to stamp a pattern over the paint using another Dylusions stamp. The finishing touch was to add some more Stickles to the Snow.

  1. Really cute. I love it.
    Did you know if you buy the boxes of 3 dozen eggs at the grocery store the outer carton is corrugated.
    I save them and use them for altered art projects also to secure magazines and books I mail.

    • Thank you. Great idea to recycle egg boxes. Not sure we have the corrugated kind over here but you could definitely use the lids, which I had never thought of, and am going to try, thanks for the idea. My son received endless vinyl records through the post and they all come packaged with 12 x 12 corrugated squares – I snaffle them when he’s not looking!! 🙂

    • Thank you. In my head I have a whole bunch of shadow boxes planned, using this idea. However, that’s probably as far as I will get!!!

I really appreciate it when people take time to leave a comment, thank you so much for doing so :)
