This is gonna be a long post filled with lots of pictures so I’ll try to keep it as short as I can and give you the main details about every card! So please, if you need, don’t hesitate to ask more info in the comments and I’ll be happy to answer you!
I’m starting with a super adorable Slothy Christmas stamp set and a round base card! The cute sleepy guy and some presents were die cut with the coordinating dies, stamped with Memento black ink and colored with copic markers.
Here’s the complete list of all the colors: W00-W1-W3-W5; E50-E51-E53; GOO-G02-G09; RV13-RV14-RV17.
For the background I used Land Borders Die Set to cut a snow slope and Petite Snow stencil with a white embossing paste. Finally the matching fun sentiment from the same Slothy Christmas stamp set was heat embossed on a night sky portion of the circle inked with Distress inks.
The card featuring Happy Howl-idays stamp set turned out clean and simple. The cute puppies were die cut with the coordinating dies on a Bristol paper and stamped with VersaFine black ink. I colored them using the following water based markers:
ZIG CLEAN COLOUR REAL BRUSH n.29 Geranium Red, n.51 Lemon Yellow, n.60 Brown, n.61 Light Brown, n.63 Ochre, n.67 Mustard, n.96 Mid Gray; TOMBOW n.885, n.977.
I masked a rectangle directly on the card base and inked it with a very light shade of blue. Next before lifting the masking paper, I added a falling snow through Petite Snow stencil and finally heat embossed the sentiment from Happy Howl-idays stamp set on a piece of a red cardstock.
The cutest sheep from Fleece Navidad stamp set has immediately stolen my heart.
I die cut a couple of the critters using the the coordinating dies, stamped with Memento black ink and colored with copic markers which complete list I’m leaving here:
T0-T1-T3-T9; E0000-E01-E02-E53; R35-RV29-R39; YG01-YG13-YG17-YG67; C00-C3.
Next I built a cute scene on my background using Frames & Flags Die Set for the window, new Forest Scene Builder Die Set for the trees, leaves and a little bird. The matching funny sentiment was simply stamped on the inked background and finally a few heat embossed snowflakes from the same Fleece Navidad stamp set added a finish touch.
The sweet couple of toads from Mistle Toad stamp set was die cut with the coordinating dies and stamped with VersaFine Onyx Black ink on a Bristol paper.
Before proceeding to the coloring I die cut a scalloped rectangle from Framework Die Set and stamped the fireplace from Fireside Friends stamp set masking some parts before inking the stamp. And finally I proceeded with coloring using water based markers:
ZIG CLEAN COLOUR REAL BRUSH n.29 Geranium Red, n.47 May Green, n.50 Yellow, n.61 Light Brown, n.63 Ochre, n.96 Mid Gray; TOMBOW n.126, n.885, n.899, n.947.
All the elements were assembled on a kraft card base and completed with a heat embossed sentiment from the same Mistle Toad stamp set.
