Card #1 : Holiday Sweaters stamp

I created this single layer card similar to my previous cards but using Holiday Sweaters stamp (love this cutie and an adorable kitty).  Colored them with copic markers and used green blue distress ink for the sky.  I used the Inside Scalloped Rectangle dies for my decorative edges.  I also dropped Polar Frost sequins here and there to accent my card.

Card #2 : Winter Fairies stamp

It's another Clean and Simple card, I colored this adorable fairy with copic marker and used yellow distress ink for the glowing light at the wand.  I also used Inside Scalloped Rectangle die for my decorative edges.  To accent my card by adhered Pastel Paradise sequins here and there.


Card #3 :  Snow Happy stamp

I had so much fun combining the Yeti Fun stamp since it also has the yeti making snow angel :)  Again I colored all the images with copic markers and used Inside Scalloped Rectangle dies for decorative edges.   I also used the Liquid Applique marker for snow effect as well as glossy accent for some dimension.


Card #4 : Mixed Yeti Fun, Skating By and  Arctic Pals stamps

These stamps are coordinated very well together.  I selected the images that holding coffee/tea cups.  The bear is from Arctic Pals stamp, Yeti from Yeti Fun stamp and Penguin is from Skating By.  I used Window Pane dies for my background and used distress oxide inks for each panels.  I also used Snowflake Flurries stencils for the top panel as well as Polar Frost sequins to accent my card.

This is how I prepared my card and I colored them all with copic markers.



I hope you like all my cards from this release :)   And Thank you for stopping by.  Have a nice day.

Hugs,
Jan

Here is what I have for you today showcasing : 
Arctic Pals stamp

Are these cuties from Arctic Pals super stinkin cute?  I made this card similar style from yesterday card but I used another border die from Fall Border dies (did I tell you I love this border dies haha)

Here is how I prepared my card

Once again I stamped my image as well as the sentiment onto white card stock and cut it with Inside Scalloped Rectangle dies.  I also created my border mask from post-it tape.  Please ignore black sooth distress oxide ink.  I changed my mind later not to use it :) *lol*

I created the mask for the bear as well as altered the boder die masking.  I wanted to have only 1 house on the hill side and that's super easy to do.  Ink blending the sky with broken china, faded jeans and salty ocean distress oxide inks.

Colored those bad boys and the border scene with copic markers.  I used C3, C1 and C0 to create those snow lines for dimension as if there were few snow hills.

Here is how the completed card looks

I used Polar Frost sequins to accent my card (gota give some love to those yummy sequins from CDD) :) as well as glossy accent on the polar bear hat.  Adhered the main panel to black card base and it's done!

I have more projects to share with you tomorrow for Day 1 November Release.  So stay tune!  Thank you for stopping by and see you tomorrow.

Hugs,
Jan

Follow Your Dreams and Flurries Of Fun

Hello there crafty friends...

Im back to share with you projects that I made for Craftin Desert Divas November Sneak Peek Release Day 4.  Today we are showcasing 2 new stamps - Snow Happy and Skating By.

*** November Special***

Save 10% on your order using code: release. Offer is valid 11/17 thur 11/22, instock items only, not valid for wholesale orders or previous orders.  All new release product will be in the CDD Shop on 11/17/17 at 3pm EST.

I have 2 cards to share with you today.
Card #1 : Snow Happy stamp

How could I resist not to make a card using this super duper cutie trolls especially with the mushroom? *lol* I couldn't!  and I made what I do best... single layer card :) *no surprise*

Here is how I prepared my card.

As always, I stamped this cutie from Snow Happy stamp and cut my main panel with Inside Scalloped Rectangle dies.  I love the white border reverse scalloped around that frame my panel.


I mapped where I wanted my growing area to be with Y000 copic marker as to remind myself for the high light area.  Im quite a heavy handed crafter *lol*


I then started smashing my blue tone copic markers from darkest toward the growing light.  I have to admit that it's not that easy to make it gradient looks.  I also mapping my grass area because I wanted my image to be positioned as if it's on the ground surounded by grasses.

Im not really happy with the hard lines so I decided to used colorless blender marker to make those small circles.  I think it helps more or less to distract the attention from those hard lines and drawn the eyes to the center of the card.

Here is how it looks.
I heat-embossed the sentiment from Dreamland stamp with white embossing powder and adhered it to my red card base.

Card # 2 : Skating By stamp

Ready for another single layer card?  This Skating By stamp has lot of fun images skating around all over the places.  I tried to give the prospective right that the cutie bunnie is smaller than other images and she supposed to be a bit far away.

Here is how I prepared my card.

Using Fall Border dies, the awesome tree boder, as a mask.  I stamped those cuties as well as the sentiment onto my main panel which was cut from Inside Scalloped Rectangle dies. I positioned the mask border dies and began to creat my background (I love this combination of distress oxide inks) using fired brick and wild honey distress oxide inks.


Took off the masking is always gives me and "Ah" moment :)  I then begain to color my scene with various copic markers.  I did went back with black marker to shapen those words sentiment and used glossy accent on the hats of bunny and walrus.  And here is the look of the completed card one more time 

I hope you like both of them as much as I do... Thank you for stopping by today and I look forward to see you again tomorrow for Day 5 :) 

Hugs,
Jan
