Walking in a Winter Wonderland


Welcome Back Dreamerland Craft Fans!

Today, I’m sharing a card with you that I made using DCS19089 – Mix and Match Clear Stamp  (Dreamerland Crafts Clear Stamps) for the main image and sentiment and 2018 Christmas Trees & Houses – M18312 (Dreamerland Crafts Clear Stamps) for the trees in the background! I thought this little bear was just so adorable, so I thought I would make him pulling his little forest friend on a little walk through the forest!

I used the centre die cut from Creative Expressions by Sue Wilson – Festive Collection – Pointsettia Mini Background – CED3049 to cut out the area I wanted to stamp my image on. I used Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card, Memento – Tuxedo Black ink and my MISTI to get a nice clean image. The first step was to stamp the bear, sled and bunny. Next I used Inkadoo Stamping Mask Paper and stamped the 3 images again. Next, I added the masked images over top of the images that were previously stamped on the base image.

The second step was to stamp in the trees. I wanted to give the impression that some trees were further back, so I inked the tree stamp with Memento – Bamboo Leaves and stamped once and then immediately again using the same stamp. I performed this several times across the background. Once all of the trees were in place, I removed the masking and was ready to colour in my images.

Before adding snow to the sky, I stamped on the sentiment using VersaMark ink and Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail. Then I added in the snow flakes using Gelly Roll Sakura #8 Pen.

The colours used for each character and the trees are listed below. The final step for the main image was to add in some sparkle on the trees and snow on the ground. For the glitter on the trees I used Quickie Glue and DecoArt Glamour Dust. For the snow below the trees, sled and bear, I used VersaMark ink and WOW! Embossing Glitter – White Puff Twinkle and touches of Stickles – Diamond.

Lastly, I die cut the background frame using Recollections – Christmas Inkjet Printable Glitter Paper and Creative Expressions by Sue Wilson – Festive Collection – Pointsettia Mini Background. I added glue to the back of the die cut and mounted it on top of Crafts Sparkling Stickers – 02-3068629. Then I popped up the main image in the centre using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

Hi There Everyone!

Today I’m sharing a card that I made using the stamps and sentiments from YNS Honey Bear (Your Next Stamp)! I thought this little bear was super adorable and would make a great card for one my friends that loves honey!!!

 

For the honeycomb corner, I used some watercolour paper and a mixture of Tim Holtz inks. Then I used the Honeycomb Corner die cut to cut it out and again went over that area with a mixture of inks to create the honey colour effect.

Card Recipe:

Stamp and Sentiment:  YNS Honey Bear

Die Cuts:  Memory Box – Honeycomb Corner; Creative Expression Craft Dies by Sue Wilson – Double Pierced Squares

Inks: Memento – Tuxedo Black, Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Fossilized Amber, Tim Holtz Ranger Distress Oxide – Fossilized Amber, Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Wild Honey, Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Rusty Hinge, Versamark

Embossing Powder: Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder

Embellishments: Buttons Galore & More – Spring Fling Collection – SF100 Busy Bees

Copic markers were used to colour in this image.

Paper: Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card, Yellow Cardstock, Strathmore Bristol

Miscellaneous: Cuttlebug, MISTI – Most Incredible Stamping Tool

I was also so excited when I received the e-mail from Jackie letting me know that my card was accepted for the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine. It was my first time ever entering any of my cards so I thought it was awesome. It can be found on page 126 of the Summer 2019 magazine.
