It was fun to have some time in the stamping room today. Listening to soft music and guns going off as the deer hunters hit the woods. It was very very cold and I was glad to be in a nice warm house. Here are today’s creations. --I wanted to use some of my new Prickley Pear stamps. They are so cute and fun to work with.
1. I used Top Dog Die doily die and an old Sizzix snowflake die that I cut out of two different papers. What sparked this card was the negative portion that was left from My Favorite Things Journal dies. I just couldn’t let that interesting piece go in the garbage.
2. More Prickley Pear and more Sizzix. that snowflake die gets a work out at this time of the year. I tried some mixed media on this one. A bit of translucent paste spread over a My Favorite things stencil and gelato added to the paste before spreading. Practicing my figure eight bows to add a nice touch.
3. This one is a Mark’s Finest Papers image that I have wanted to use for a long time. Stamped in brown and added a bit of stippling of Summer Sun ink across to give the idea of a bit of sun peeking through the woods and to highlight the fox a bit, otherwise, he got kind of lost. A bit of flower soft snow on the trees and we have a winter card.
4. We made a card similar to this at the vendor show I went to a couple of weeks back. I like the broader overlay and added extra scoring lines. I changed the greeting also. Made my own smooch spray with some radiant liquid pearls and alcohol in a spray bottle. I love the nice shimmer it put on the paper. you can’t see it much in the picture though. These cute little chickadees and the pine bough die cuts are from Impression Obsession. The edges are punched with a paper punch.
