Mistletoe Santa Gnome!!


Today, I’m sharing another super adorable gnome from KLM Digital Designs November release called Mistletoe Santa Gnome. The image comes with 3 different sentiments, “Merry Christmas”, which I’ve used on my card and also, “Believe” and “ho-ho-ho”. This Santa gnome is out taking a stroll and enjoying the magic of Christmas and winter.

I decided to colour this Santa in non-traditional colours. To make the card, I printed out the main image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my HP Printer. I used my Brother Scan and Cut to cut around the image and coloured it in with Copic markers. Then I applied Nuvo Glitter Accents – Fresh Snowfall to the all of the trimming and set it aside to dry.

I used AC White paper to create the base shape of the card 6″ x 6″. Then I applied Stampin’ Up – Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper cut to the same size directly to the base. I had a spare cut-out from American Crafts – “Holiday” paper in which I had used My Creative Time -Stitched Squares Inside and Out to die cut the centre. I trimmed it a little bit on all sides to create a border. I took a small scrap of Recollections – Christmas Inkjet Printable Glitter Paper and tore it across the top to imitate snow caps. This I adhered to the back of the die-cut panel. Then, I glued the entire piece down on to the background. I also made sure that I didn’t use any glue towards the tops of the snow.

The sentiment was brought into Microsoft Word and I adjusted the width to be .95″. This allowed me to use the 1″ die from Lifestyle Crafts Cutting Dies – Nesting Circles to die cut the sentiment after it was printed out. I inked around the edges of the sentiment with Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Peacock Feathers and applied Clear – Wink of Stella over top of it to make it sparkle. The snowflakes were all die cut from Signature Collection by Sara Davies – Winter Wonderland Snowflake Quartet.

The remainder of the card was now ready to put together. I glued the Gnome directly to the background paper and moved it slightly under the snow. I added glue to each of the snowflakes and placed them directly onto the backgrounds. Lastly, I popped up the sentiment with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

Birthday Belle!


It’s Wednesday, and this week I’m sharing a CAS card featuring Birthday Belle – T076 from (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) with the sweet sentiment Bummer – H263 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps). Our birthday girl this week isn’t too keen on having another birthday to remind her how old she is, but she is still having fun blowing out all of the candles. LOL! I decided to colour her outfit and cake pink, because I remember how much my grandmother loved that colour.

To create the card this week, I stamped the main image and then coloured it in with Copic Markers. My Creative Time -Stitched Squares Inside and Out die and my Cutttlebug were used to cut out the main coloured image and the hot pink background paper.

For the base card I cut some yellow cardstock 10″ long by 5″ high. It was then scored and folded in half to be 5″ x 5″. All of the edges for the base card and die-cuts were then inked around using the various Tim Holtz Distress inks listed below. I mounted the hot pink cardstock directly to the base using double-sided tape. Then the main image was popped up with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. Finally, to finish it off, I used some crafty dots by Crafts.

Card Recipe:

Stamp: Birthday Belle – T076 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps)

Sentiment: Bummer – H263 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps)

Saying Hi!


Welcome Back Dreamerland Craft Fans!

Today, I’m sharing Mix and Match Clear Stamps – DCS 19093 (Dreamerland Crafts) for the images and sentiment that I used to create this little scene. I just love how you can used these little stamps to create a variety of scenes. To colour my card this week, I thought I would try using Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. I normally colour with Copic markers, so this was a bit of a challenge for me.

To make this card I used a base card of 4.25″ x 5.5″ by Hot Buy – Recollections – Watercolour Solids. The sentiment was stamped directly onto the background paper using my MISTI, VersaMark ink and Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail. The powder was then heat embossed with Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool.

Strathmore – Watercolor Paper – 140 lb. was die cut using my Cuttlebug and dies from My Creative Time -Stitched Squares Inside and Out. For the images, I used my MISTI and Kraftin’ Kimmie – Wicked Black Ink.  I created a mask of the bear’s head using some Post-it Note paper and set it aside. To create the scene it was done in stages. First the bear and the little flower pots were stamped. Then the mask created earlier was put overtop of the little bear as show below. The poles, clothesline and grass were then stamped next.

Lastly, the T-Shirts, birds and clouds were stamped. Once this was completed, the mask for the bear was removed. The images were coloured in with the colour recipe listed below and Sakura Glaze – Black was used for all of the little eyes. Once the colouring was all completed, the finished scene was mounted directly to the base with 2-sided tape. Kraftin’ Kimmie – Lovely Dots were added to put a finishing touch on the card.

Birthday Sentiments For Ewe


Today I’m sharing  Sheep and Sentiments (KLM Digital Designs) image from KLM Digital Designs new September Release. These little “Ewes” are so fun to colour up and I just love their adorable expressions. This stamp comes with 3 sentiments, 2 of which I have used in the cards below and also “Wooly Hope Ewe Feeling Better”! I wooly love this stamp set and I’m sure you will too! LOL!

 

I printed out the main images onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my HP Printer. The image was then die cut with my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time -Stitched Squares Inside and Out. Both of the images were then coloured in with Copic Markers. For both cards, Hot Buy – Recollections – Watercolour Solids Cards & Envelopes – 5.5″ x 4.25″, Doodle Bug Designs Inc. – Down on the Farm – 6″ x 6″ paper pad were used to create the backgrounds. I edged around the printed backgrounds with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Evergreen Bough ink.

My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies Layers were used to die-cut the background paper for the 2nd card. The sentiments were both printed out onto Recollections – White card stock and then fussy cut. They were then placed onto some Dark Yellow Cardstock and fussy cut around again. All of the layers were now ready to be assembled. The image, background layer and sentiments were all popped up with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. Some Kraftin’ Kimmie Dots – Neon Rainbow were added to the 1st card.

Stuffed with Love


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I used Angel Bear Scarecrow – T110 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the main image and Scarecrows Stuffed – H087 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. The turkey is hiding behind the angel bear for protection from becoming captured. He doesn’t want to become someone’s Thanksgiving Dinner. The crows are shrugging their shoulders, because they are just not sure what’s going to happen! Let’s hope this little angel bear can protect him. LOL!

To make my card this week, I started out with a simple white card base, sized at 5.5″ x 5.5″. The base background was also cut at 5.5″ x 5.5″ using PhotoPlay – Mad 4 Plaid Fall paper. The added touches at the top and bottom are also from the same paper pad.

The main image was stamped onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and then die cut with My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies Layers. It was coloured in with Copic Markers and Sakura Glaze – Black pen was used for the eyes and nose. The layer behind the image was die cut from green cardstock using My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies. The sentiment square was die cut using orange cardstock and My Creative Time -Stitched Squares Inside and Out. The image and sentiment were popped up on top of the remaining layers with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape and some Kraftin’ Kimmie Dots were added to finish the card off.

Simple Pleasures of Life


Today I’m sharing Friends with Nature (KLM Digital Designs) image and sentiments from KLM Digital Designs new release.  Sometime we have to just sit back and relax and enjoy the beauty of nature surrounding us. That’s what these 2 little friends are doing on this bright summer’s day.

The main image and sentiment were printed onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using a HP Printer. The main image was coloured in with Copic markers. Then a second image image was printed out onto regular copy paper and my Brother Scan and Cut was used to cut directly around the image so that it could be used as a mask. I have a magnetic cutting board, so I placed the close-cropped image overtop of my coloured image with small magnets. Then a cloud stencil, which I had created using Avery Elle’s Pierced Clouds Die and Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean was used to create the clouds in the blue sky. After colouring the grass, a little piece of rag and some rubbing alcohol were used to create the texture in the grass. Once the colouring was completed, a Pigma Micron 005 black marker was used to outline the main image and make the lines a little thicker.

For the main background, I used a white card base of 6″ x 6″. Momenta – Cardstock was used for the main background, cut at the same size as the base and then inked all around the 4 edges with Kraftin’ Kimmie – Purple Pansy Ink. Then a purple ribbon was added. The background paper was then mounted onto the base card using 2-sided tape.

For the sentiment, I used My Creative Time – More Stitched Edges and Cuttlebug to die cut around it. I die-cut the coloured image with My Creative Time -Stitched Squares Inside and Out. Then both the sentiment and the coloured image were edged around on all sides using a Sharpie – Gold Medium Point – Water Based Paint to give the illusion that it was mounted onto gold paper.

Both the image and sentiments were popped up with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to complete the card.

Card Recipe:

Stamp and Sentiment: Friends with Nature (KLM Digital Designs) Stamp comes with 3 separate sentiments.

Buddy’s Surprize!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a birthday card using Buddy Bear’s Surprise – S193 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the main image and Shhh Party! – H038 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. Buddy is not very good at keeping secrets though or spelling! LOL! He is however, ready to bring you presents and party on!

To make my card this week, I started off with a card base of 5.5″ x 4.25″.  I love this background party paper by Echo Park called “It’s Your Birthday”. I cut it the same size as the base card and then used 2-sided tape to attach it to the base. Then I inked around the entire outside edges of the card with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Wilted Violet.

I used My Creative Time – Stitched Squares Inside and Out to cut some Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. Then I used my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black Ink to stamp the image. I coloured in the main image with Copic markers. I stamped the sentiment onto some yellow cardstock with Memento – Tuxedo Black ink and then used Your Next Stamp – Stitched Rectangle Die Set to die cut it out. Next, I ran both my image and sentiment through the Xyron Creative Station to turn them both into stickers. I applied both of these to some Violet cardstock and trimmed a small border. Lastly, I popped up both the image and the sentiment using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

Card Recipe:

4 Alarm Birthday!!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I used Fireman Matthew – S017 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the main image and 4 Alarm Day – H059 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. Fireman Matthew is prepped and ready to put out the fire from all of those flames rising up from the birthday candles on your cake! He even has a lot of little firetrucks on standby too, just in case! LOL!

To make my card this week, I started off with a card base of 6″ x 6″. I used Echo Park – Scoot by Deena Rutter paper for the background. I just loved those little firetrucks. My older brother used to be a fireman, so I was always looking for background paper to go with the Fireman stamps I would find to make his cards.

I created the brick background by embossing some brown tan paper, using my Cuttlebug and Darice – Brick Wall Embossing Folder. Then I used a mixture of Tim Holtz brown inks listed below to create the texture for the wall. I stamped the image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my MISTI and Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and then coloured the image in with Copic Markers. Once it was coloured in, I fussy cut around it and went along all of the edges with a black marker.

The sentiment was long and I wanted to make it square, so I did it in several steps. Using my MISTI and Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, I covered the portion of the stamp with tape that I didn’t want to stamp. Inked the portion that I wanted and then removed the tape. Then I stamped it, cleaned it off and moved the tape to the next portion that I didn’t want to stamp. I did this 3 times to get the result seen in this photo. This allowed me to make the sentiment into a square. Once this was done, I die cut it out using my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Stitched Squares Inside and Out.

I ran both the die-cut sentiment and finished coloured image through my Xyron Creative Station. Then I mounted the image onto the brick wall and the sentiment onto some red cardstock. I used my cutter to create a nice square for the sentiment. Next I went around the entire card with Tim Holtz – Fired Brick Distress Ink and popped up the brick wall and sentiment using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. I added in some water droplets using Stickles – Ice Blue to finish off the card.

Card Recipe:

Stamp:  Fireman Matthew – S017  (High Hopes Rubber Stamps)

Day Wrapped in Happiness


Welcome Back Dreamerland Craft Fans!

Today, I’m sharing a birthday card that I made using Dreamerland Crafts stamps called You Are A Blessing – D19085 for the main image and  Birthday Sentiments 002 – DS163007. This little girl looks so peaceful sitting on her swing with her sweet companion next to her.

 

To make this card I used a base card of 4.25″ x 5.5″. I die cut a square out of Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Stitched Squares Inside and Out. Then I stamped the image using Memento – Tuxedo Black ink and my MISTI. I coloured in the image with Copic markers and then drew in the tree, grass, clouds and sky.

I stamped the sentiment using VersaMark ink and my MISTI. I used Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail and then heat embossed the powder with Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. I layered the sentiment onto aqua cardstock and the coloured image onto purple cardstock and then popped up both the image and the sentiment with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

Birthday Girl! We Need To Put the Shades On!


Sharing a birthday card today that I made using Sunny Shades Set – SC4988 (AI Art Impressions) for both the image and sentiment.

To make this card, I used my MISTI to get a nice clean stamped image using Memento – Tuxedo Black and Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. Next I die-cut out the stamped image and background papers using my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Stitched Squares Inside and Out. I then inked around the edges using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Picked Raspberry and Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Peacock Feathers.

I mounted the background paper from Doodle Bug Designs Inc. – Sugar Shoppe – 6″ x 6″ paper pad onto a card base of 5.5″ x 4.25″. Then, I popped up the next layer using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. I mounted the main coloured image onto some Hotpink cardstock and then cut a narrow edge around it. Lastly, I popped up it up with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

True Friends!


Welcome Back KLM Digital Designs Fans!

Today, I’m sharing a card that I made using Bunny and Butterfly Digital Stamp (KLM Digital Designs)! I fell in love with this beautiful image as soon as I saw it. I found this stamp to be so peaceful and serene and I love the sentiment that KLM Digital Designs created to go along with it.

To make the card, I printed out the image and sentiment with my HP printer using High Quality Grayscale onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I found this is the best print setting so that your ink won’t smear when you start colouring. I die-cut the image with my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time -Stitched Squares Inside and Out and coloured it in using Copic markers. Next I mounted the image onto some purple cardstock and left a small border all around it. I cut the sentiment and did the same.

To complete the card, I used a white card base of 5.5″ x 4.25″ and used double-sided tape to mount the background paper from K&Company – Susan Wright – SW Botanical. I popped up the image and sentiment using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape and add some Kraftin’ Kimmie Pastel Krafty Dots.

Carrot Express!!!


It’s Wednesday, and Easter is quickly approaching. So for this week, I used Carrot Express – S055 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the main image and Canadian Easter Greetings – H139 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment.

To put this card together, I first die-cut some Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time -Stitched Squares Inside and Out. Next, I stamped the image with Memento – Tuxedo Black ink using my MISTI to get a nice clean image. I put the die-cut back over the image again and used it for a template to get a nice clean white border. I created a mask out of the image and used the die-cut from Avery Elle – Custom Steel Dies – Made in the USA – D-05-01 PiercedCloudsDie and Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean to create the sky background.

I mounted the plaid paper from Recollections – Easter Paper onto a white card base of 5.5″ x 4.25″and then edged around the image and card with Tim Holtz Distress Inks and embossed the sentiment using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Wilted Violet and VersaMark.

Lastly, I popped up the image onto the card using 3M – VHB 2-sided tape and added in some Kraftin’ Kimmie Pastel Krafty Dots.

Gone Fishing!


It’s Wednesday, and this week I used Anthony James – R022 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the main image and Gone Fishing Sign – G103 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment.

I come from a family that LOVES fishing. My dad has always loved fishing and now my older brother has fallen into his foot steps of loving to fish too. I remember going fishing with my dad and I thought I had a really, really big fish. We were all so excited until I pulled up a big chunk of grass reeds. LOL! The fish were jumping all around us, but we couldn’t seem to catch any that 1 day.

As soon as we were back on shore, you could see the huge fish playing all over the lake. I think they were just laughing at us. But I’m not a 100% sure. LOL!

To make the card, I first used Your Next Stamp – Stitched Rectangle Die Set (YNSD214) to cut out the main image from Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and My Creative Time – Stitched Squares Inside and Out to die cut the square out of some white cardstock. Then I used my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black Ink to get a nice crisp image. I used various Copic markers listed below to colour in the image.

I decided to colour in the fish with PrismaColor pencils on the sentiment.

Next I ran both the coloured image and the sentiment through my Xyron Creative Station and placed both cuts over top of some green cardstock. Then I popped both up using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

The base of the card is 5.5″ x 5.5″. I edged around the card and sentiment with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Bundled Sage. For a final touch, I added a little fish under the sentiment.

Love Every Little Moment


Welcome Back Dreamerland Craft Fans!

Today, I’m sharing a card that I made using Mix and Match Clear Stamps (DC19095) (Dreamerland Crafts)!  Love the images for this stamp. There are so many different scenes that can be created. I chose to do a night scene with the 2 best friends sharing the serenity of the night sky.

To make this card, I first die cut some Bristol paper and then drew in the hills with light pencil and traced around the stamps to get the general idea of placement. I created a masked image of the bear and bunny using Inkadoo Stamping Mask Paper and Post-It Note for the hills and cut them both out. Next I erased all of the lines so that you could barely see them and stamped the bear and the bunny image directly onto the Bristol Paper. Next, I mounted the mask of the characters and hills that I had cut out previously over top of the stamped images so that they would be protected while I coloured in the sky.

To do the sky I used a mixture of Tim Holtz inks listed below and PrismaColor pencils. Then I blended all of the colours together using Gamsol and a blending paper stump. I repeated the process with the PrismaColor pencils several times.

Once the sky was completed, I removed the stencil for the grass and proceeded to colour it in using the same technique that I had used for the sky.

Lastly, I removed the mask for the bear and bunny and coloured them in. I added in some small trees using a Black Prismacolor pencil.

I popped my finished image, back into my MISTI again and stamped the sentiment using VersaMark. I also stamped in the stars in the sky and embossed everything with Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail. I also used a brush and tapped some of the white embossing powder all over the sky. Then heated it with my Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. Lastly, I stamped and embossed the seagulls using VersaFine – Onyx Black and Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder. I coloured them in using Black PrismaColor pencil and then added in some highlights on the wings.

I popped up the coloured image and blue cardstock with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

Card Recipe:

Stamp and Sentiment: Mix and Match Clear Stamps (DC19095) (Dreamerland Crafts)

Inks: Versa Fine – Onyx Black, Versa Mark, (Sky Base): Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Blueprint Sketch, Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Chipped Sapphire, Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Black Soot

It’s No Mystery!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I used Little Sleuth – R205 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for my main image and No Mystery – H204 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps). This little sleuth has uncovered the clue to why he is so in love with his special someone. This card could be used for Valentine’s Day, Anniversary or even a birthday!

To make the background for the card, I die cut multiple squares using My Creative Time – Stitched Squares Inside and Out in various brown cardstock and some white Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Cardstock.

For the brick background, I used Darice – Brick Wall Embossing Folder and then various Tim Holtz inks listed below to give the different colours for the texture.

I coloured in the main image with Copic markers and then fussy cut around it and used a black marker to go around all of the edges.

I layered all of the pieces together using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to pop them up and then 2-sided tape to mount the final square onto the 6″ x 6″ card base.

To finish off the card, I used some brown twine and criss-crossed it to make a little bow and added in the question mark using some clear gems that I coloured with E23.

Be My Valentine???


Welcome KLM Digital Design Fans!!

Hi There! Katy the owner of KLM Digital Designs asked me to join her Design Team. YAY!

 

So today, I’m sharing my first creation that I made using several of KLM Digital Designs’ new stamps.

I decided to create a little love scene using Girl Window Gnome and Bouquet Gnome. The sentiment is from Cupid Gnome set. I thought these 2 little Gnomes made such an adorable couple and it looks like love is in the air. LOL!

I made the card on 5″ x 5″ red card base and then for the background, I die cut paper from 49 and Market – Tattered Garden using My Creative Time -Stitched Squares Inside and Out. I loved the way the paper resembled a building wall. Next I fussy cut around all of the images and sentiment and popped them up on the card using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. For the sentiment, I ran it through my Xyron Create a Sticker and then placed it on the card.

For the final step, I used Sizzix Framelets by Stephanie Barnard – 562676 – Hearts Dotted to die cut Crafts – Sparkling Stickers – 02-3068629 and then added the little hearts above the male Gnome.

Recipe for Card:

Stamps: Girl Window Gnome (KLM Digital Designs), Bouquet Gnome (KLM Digital Designs)

And They Lived Happily Ever After!


It’s Wednesday, and I am back to share a wedding card with you. Love is in the air and who doesn’t love weddings? LOL! This week, I used Just Married – S070 for my main image and Lived Happily Ever After – G012 for the sentiment.

I decided to create a scene of the couple driving down the road as they are beginning their new journey as newlyweds. No worries, except a long open road and green pastures ahead.

To create the card I first stamped the image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and then used My Creative Time -Stitched Squares Inside and Out to die cut it out. Then I took a lead pencil and lightly drew in the lines for a road. I wanted the road to curve in order to imitate the couple going on a long journey. I coloured the image in with Copic markers. For the grass, I used various shades of green and then Copic Colourless blending solution and an old face cloth that had ridges on it. I added some of the blending solution to the cloth and lightly tapped it everywhere over the grass. I did this first as I didn’t want the solution to go over the main image.

After the image was all coloured in I mounted the image onto Recollections – Cranberry Cardstock and cut around it to make it square. Next I used 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to pop it up over the gold paper that I had die cut earlier using the same die cuts from My Creative Time.

The card is 6″ x 6″ AC White cardstock. I die cut K&C Company – Kelly Panacci – KP Valentine – 30-599345 with Heartfelt Creations – Fleur Border Basics – HCD1-7120 and the ran the die cuts through my Xyron Creative Station which enabled me to make stickers out of the die cuts. Then I mounted them on the card. I love the effect that they created. I also die cut some hearts using Sizzix Framelets by Stephanie Barnard – 562676 – Hearts Dotted using Recollections – Cranberry Cardstock. I ran the cardstock through the Xyron – Create A Sticker first to make it easier to just peel off the backs for the hearts and place them on the card.

I stamped the sentiment and mounted it on top of the gold paper and then popped it up on the card.

Card Recipe:

Stamp: Just Married – S070 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps)

Sentiment: Lived Happily Ever After – G012 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps)

Winter Birthday Wishes!


Sharing a card that I made for my sister-in-law. I was so happy when Polkadoodles came out with this new release for Winnie Winter Celebrations.

The stamp that I used to create this card is called Birthday Gifts – Winnie Winter Celebration (Polkadoodles).

I printed out the image on Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using Grayscale. By using Grayscale, your image won’t smudge when you go to colour it in. I coloured the image using Copic markers and then used Gelly Roll Sakura #10 Pen to create the snow in the sky and
Stickles – Diamond to create some texture in the snow.

For the squares die cutting, I used My Creative Time – Stitched Squares Inside and Out. I really love the colour combos of Recollections – Northern Lights paper pad. I popped up the cut out frame and coloured image using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. Lastly, I die cut some snowflake borders using Snowflake Border Die (#YourNextStamp) and then just used glue on 1 half of each side of the snowflakes and then mounted them onto the paper. Lastly, I added some small purple gems into the centre of each snowflake and some larger purple perls to the top and bottom of the card to finish it off.
