Dashing Through The Snow

Hello friends, I have a fun card to share with you today.
I got this super cute Avery Elle stamp from Butterfly Reflections Ink, and I just had to play with it..


Eeeek!! how fun!! I really enjoyed making this card..
I used Heidi Swapp Confetti Stencil and modeling paste to create the snow background. Then I hand cut the white snowy hills out of white cardstock and sneaked in a black cardstock for the road, I used Sakura white gelly roll pen to make the white lines.
I stamped the image Dashing through the snow on Crafters Companion ultra smooth white cardstock and colored using copics. I also added glossy accents to the windows and car lights, added glitter to the tree and I also added glitters to the snowy hills and the tiny trees.

Here is a close up:

 
I then realized that I forgot to add a sentiment, so went back added the sentiment using Memento black ink.


Hope you liked my card. Thanks for stopping by!!

Moose You So Much

Hello crafty friends, we have a new challenge starting over at A Blog Named Hero and the theme this time is..

Here is my card for the challenge:


I took a white panel from Crafters Companion ultra smooth white cardstock and first stamped the bull moose then did some mirror stamping for the cow moose (before stamping it on another solid stamp I erased the antlers). The bull and cow moose were then colored using Prisma colored pencils, I also colored the grass and flowers using Prisma pencils. The background is colored using distress inks.
I stamped the sentiment using Memento black ink and added some hearts which are di-cut using Simon Says Stamp Holiday Shapes, I also added some glitter to the hearts and flowers and glossy accents to the moose's eyes.

Here is a close up:

 
Hope you liked my card.

Happy Fall

Hello friends, I am back with a card for Top Dog Dies.
I really enjoyed making this card and this one turned out exactly how I imagined when I got this die set, here is my card...


 
I played with the new Pocket Page Fall Die Set, I die-cut few leaves and acorns from a white cardstock and then added colors using distress inks and flesh adhered all the die cuts to a white card base. I really love all the stitched details on the leaves, so beautiful!! The sentiment is from a Hero Arts stamp set.

DO I SMELL CAKE?

Hello friends, I am sharing this card over at Gerda Steiner Designs blog. I played with our new Monster Party stamp set again, this grumpy monster is so cute that I had to make a card with him again!!!

Here is how I made this card: 1) I first stamped the tiny images included in the set using a black ink and then used back of a tiny stamp to do some abstract stamping (if you have a solid stamps i.e; which is not a image you can use that as well).
2) Then I stamped the monster onto Crafter's Companion ultra smooth cardstock and colored using copics.
3) To mute the background so the focus could be on the monster I added a piece of vellum and then foam mounted the image.
4) The sentiment "Do I Smell" is stamped directly onto vellum and "CAKE?" is stamped on a white cardstock and cut it out and foam mounted it.
5) Finally added some details to the image; white dots to his body and glossy accents to the eyes.

Here is a close up:


Hope you liked my card.
We lots n lots of new holiday stamps added to the shop and I highly recommend you to check it out (They are superrrr cute!!!)...
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!!
