Welcome back – Chris here with you today with my first Christmas card for this season. I love to mix and match several stamp sets together, so I did on this little project.
For this card I used:
- Feed the Birds stamp set
- Snow Day stamp set
- High Rise Tree scene Die
- Tree Neighbors stamp set
- Lanterns – Merry Pigs
I decided to color the cute critters with Distress inks (I love to use the Distress reinkers) so I’m going to start to stamp all images on water-color friendly paper. For the background I cut out the wonderful tree from the new scene die. On this tree I used some Distress brown for blending ( tea dye, walnut stain, and vintage photo).
After coloring, cut out the critters – if I have the coordinating dies, I like to cut out the images twice to get more dimension. For the background I blended with several blue Distress oxide inks (tumbled glass, peacock feather, faded jeans) . Then added some “snowflakes” with a stencil from my stash and stencil paste ( in this case I used the white stencil paste from Lawn Fawn). The “snow hill” was just cut out by hand.
To finish the card I arranged all images and added them on my card base.
Every year Christmas come up suddenly – so, this year my personally challenge: prepare some Christmas cards earlier. We will see what happen. lol.
Thank you so much for stopping by
and Happy crafty time
