You're cool Owl

Hi there,

we are starting a new Challenge over on the Elizabeth Craft Designs Blog and this time it's all about Krista Schneider's wonderful new Christmas and Winter stamp sets:

  • cut out two Elizabeth Craft Designs Stitched Rectangles - one from kraft cardstock and one from watercolor paper
  • create a snowflake background on the kraft panel with the help of Versamark, WOW! Bright White Super Fine embossing powder and stamps from the Elizabeth Craft Designs Snowflakes set
  • add color to the watercolor panel with Distress Inks (Blueprint Sketch, Chipped Sapphire) and a Mini Ink Blending Tool
  • use watered- down white acrylic paint to create snowflakes in the background
  • cut out a hill shape from white Soft Finish Cardstock using one of the Elizabeth Craft Designs Adventure Edges
  • stamp the sentiment from the Elizabeth Craft Designs Cute Winter Sentiments set with Distress Oxide Ink Blueprint Sketch
  • stamp the owl from the Elizabeth Craft Designs Winter Animals set with Versafine Clair Pinecone and cut it out with the coordinating die
  • color the image with Derwent Inktense Pencils and a damp watercolor brush - add the stripes to the cap with a white gel pen
  • adhere the owl to the card with double-sided foam adhesive

Which of the new Krista Schneider stamp sets would you use to create a Christmas card.

I can't wait to see your creations in the gallery.

Winter Critters Tag Duo

Hi there,

I created this cute tag duo for the Karten-Kunst Blog:

  • cut out two tags from smooth white cardstock with the help of one of the Karten-Kunst Tag dies
  • stamp the adorable Gerda Steiner Designs Hedgehog with Sign with Versafine Vintage Sepia
  • add the tree and the sentiment from the Karten-Kunst Runde Siegel set with Versafine Olympia Green and Versafine Vintage Sepia
  • stamp the mouse and the stars from the Karten-Kunst Viecher im Winter set with Versafine Smokey Gray and add the sentiment from the Karten-Kunst Runde Siegel set with that same grey ink
  • color the images with Faber-Castell Polychromos Pencils
  • add highlights with a white gel pen
  • thread natural and teal twine through the holes of the tags

Have a christmasy day.
