WARM WISHES TO A COOL FRIEND (1)

For this winter/ Christmas scene, I used the Polar Pals stamp set from My Favorite Things.


I wanted to do some really simple blending for the background. Towards the top I started blending with Shaded Lilac Distress Ink, letting it fade out into white towards the bottom. I wanted to add some splatter and decided to used some gold paint. I took the Starry Colors pallette from Gansai Tambi. I used the Yellow Gold color.


I stamped the images and colored them with Copic Markers. Here are the colors I used:
Polar bear: W0 - W3 - 0
Penguin: W5 - W7/ W0 - W3 - 0/ YR15 - YR07
Narwhal: W0 - W3 - W5
Walrus: E15 - E18/ E31 - E33
Tree: BG15 - BG18/ BV00 - BV02
Clothes: BV00 - BV02/ Y06 - Y15/ RV10 - R83/ BG15 - BG18


I fussy cut the images and adhered them to my background. I also stamped the sentiment. I added the panel onto a Ballet Slippers cardbase.


I really love these colors together. Makes it a non-traditional Christmas card. It's something different from all the reds and greens.

MERRY CHRISTMAS (11)

I used the Woodland Critter Huggers die set + the Woodland Critter Huggers Winter Add-On die set, for this Christmas card.


I decided to create the deer this time. For the deer I used the following Lawn Fawn cardstocks:
Kraft cardstock, Ground Coffie cardstock, Vanilla Malt cardstock, Black Licorice cardstock, Ballet Slippers cardstock, Chili Pepper cardstock.

For the scarf I used a piece of Knit Picky pattern paper. I also die cut the Holly, using Noble Fir cardstock and Chili Pepper cardstock. For the three presents I used Sunflower cardstock, Ballet Slippers cardstock and Peacock cardstock. I'm really loving this combo for Christmas at the moment, yellow-teal-pink.


I assembled the deer and added the add-on elements to the critter. I adhered the deer to a piece of Knit Picky pattern paper, that I die cut with the Small Stitched Rectangle Stackables die. I layered this onto a piece of Let's Polka in the Dark paper, which I die cut with the Fancy Scalloped Rectangle Stackables. The entire panel was adhered to a Sunflower cardbase.

As a finishing touch, I added some dots and highlights with my white gelly roll pen. I also stamped the sentiment, which is from the Holiday Helpers stamp set.


I just can't get enough of these Woodland Critter Huggers dies and the add-ons!!!

I die cut the birch trees and fussy cut the rest. I assembled the card, stamped the sentiment and adhered the panel onto a Chili Pepper cardbase.

I added some highlights and dots to the images, using a white gelly roll pen. I also added a red nose to both deer, using Nuvo Crystal Drops in the color Autumn Red.


My favorite type of card: a scene card. And I combined two different companies, which I enjoy but don't do enough.

WOODLAND CRITTER HUGGERS (2)

There is a new challenge over at the Lawn Fawnatics blog and it's all about glitter, sparkle and bling!!! I created four cute Christmas animals, using the Woodland Critter Huggers die set and the Woodland Critter Huggers Winter Add-On. For the bling elements, I used Lawn Fawn's new sparkle cardstocks.


I wanted to create four animals. I choose to make the raccoon, fox, owl and deer. I will list all the cardstocks I used for each critter.


Raccoon: Black Licorice cardstock, Narwhal cardstock, Ballet Slippers cardstock
Deer: Chocolate Bar cardstock, Kraft cardstock, Black Licorice cardstock, Ballet Slippers cardstock
Owl: Kraft cardstock, Vanilla Malt cardstock, Fake Tan cardstock, Ballet Slippers cardstock, Black Licorice cardstock
Fox: Canned Pumpkin cardstock, Vanilla Malt cardstock, Ballet Slippers cardstock, Black Licorice cardstock


I assembled all the animals before die cutting all the add-on elements.

I didn't use all of the accessories that come int the Woodland Critter Huggers Winter Add-On set. I used the scarf, the hat, the mittens, the mug, the candy can, and the gingerbread man. I used the Sparkle cardstocks for the most elements. For the mug I used Cilantro cardstock, for the whipped cream and candy canes I used Vanilla Malt cardstock and for the gingerbread men I used Paper Bag cardstock.


I added all the add-on elements to the critters.

There are so many options for these Woodland Critter Huggers!!! They are so adorable!


Please make sure to check out the new challenge on the Lawn Fawnatics Blog, for more inspiration. And you can off course enter your own project.
