There are a few stamp sets premiering today: Scenery: Dotty, Snowy Holiday with Evelin T Designs (stamps and cutaways), and Essentials: Tilda Cutaways. Make sure you check out the Winnie & Walter Blog here to see the images.
My cards today feature the Evelin T Snowy Holiday set - this set is just as wonderful as all the past Evelin T sets - the images are so versatile and so much fun to colour.
For my first cards, I also used the Grand Merry stamp set to create the background. I lined all the block sentiments up in my Misti to almost cover the front of my dark grey A2 card (a little bit of extra space left at the bottom). I stamped the sentiments in Versamark and then brushed on some Perfect Pearls to give them a metallic finish. I really love this look and don't do it often enough. I added the candy cane paper strip (stamped in red ink with Scenery: Holiday Trimmings) and the little strip of green glitter paper to the open space at the bottom.
I Copic coloured two images from the Snowy Holiday with Evelin T - the Santa Claus and the little dog carrying presents. I then fussy cut them (there are coordinating dies available) and popped them up on some foam tape on the candy cane strip. I coloured the presents and Santa's fur trim with some Stickes to add a little bit of sparkle.
The Snowy Holiday stamp set also features a snow globe stamp - so I had to make a shaker card :) I stamped the snow globe onto the card panel made from pearlescent blue cardstock. I then used my craft knife to cut out the glass portion of the globe. Before constructing the shaker, I embossed the panel using the (premiered on Tuesday) Pennsylvania Polka Creative Screenings. For the image behind the shaker, I stamped the car and tree onto some white cardstock and Copic coloured it - I did add some Stickles to the presents and the head lights and added "joy" to the licence plate. I filled the shaker with Stampendous Shaved Ice - this is, by far, my favourite "snow" shaker material. I sparkles and because it is so light, little pieces will stick to the image instead of all settling at the bottom. I mounted the completed shaker panel onto a card made from the same cardstock. I stamped the globe base onto some white cardstock and Copic coloured it as well before white heat embossing a sentiment from the same set.
Thanks for stopping by!
