“Oh, the weather outside is frightful…” but I’m drinking warm cocoa! I paired a sentiment from Avery Elle’s FA LA LA set with the Tea Time teacups in a holiday card.
I colored the cups (stamped on watercolor paper) with Zig Clean Color brush markers. I cut holes in the two lower cups so that I could stamp the cups, and a small hole in the top cup to hold the candy cane. I added Distress Ink to the background in Peacock Feathers to coordinate with the turquoise and pink on the cups. It ’tis the season for cocoa, egg nog, peppermint mocha lattes, …
Supplies: candy cane (Impress)
I’m playing along at the Merry Monday #180 Challenge with another reindeer card. Turns out, I have a lot of reindeer-themed supplies!
I used Bo Bunny Sugar Glitter embossing paste with the Hero Arts reindeer stencil. I allowed the red cardstock panel to dry overnight (the product seems to take longer to dry than other embossing pastes I’ve used before) and then added a heat-embossed sentiment from the Hero Arts Family and Friends stamp set. I used a Taylored Expressions stitched banner die to cut the sentiment. Other than the drying time, this CAS card came together quickly.
I’m playing along at the Merry Monday #180 Challenge with a reindeer card!
I colored Distress Ink watercolor paper with three shades of Zig Clean Color Brushes (for am ombré effect) and cut the paper with the Penny Black 51-147 a very merry die. I also used the die to cut white cardstock and attached the two die cuts with liquid adhesive. The reindeer (from the 40-258 dancing deers set) was stamped with red pigment ink. I added patterned paper from 80-012 wintertime to a square card base and finished the card off with twine.
