Happy Sunday Crafting

I set aside a few hours for crafting today and managed to get some mojo back and create a couple of cards. 

First card was inspired by this fabulous card from Ardyth at Muse:

I loved the little pandas - and the way that they are dancing reminded me of my new Mama Elephant Reindeer Games stamp set. I inked them up and coloured them with Zig Clean Colour pens. I did some ink blending with Chipped Sapphire, added an MFT greeting, and some snow created with Versamark and glitter embossing powder. I finished off with a gem on Rudolph's nose.

My second card uses the MFT soda pop stamps and dies - I had to have these as soon as I saw them since I work for Pepsi and they are so perfect for making cards for my coworkers - this is my first one:

I created the background using Twisted Citron, Squeezed Lemonade, and Ripe Persimmon, and then stamped the greeting on an angle using Versafine Onyx. I coated the die cut in Brushed Pewter Distress Stain, and added a few drops of Glossy Accents to the background before mounting it on a SSS Fog cardstock card base.

I will link this card up to:
