Tis’ the Season SlimLine Card
For my first card I used the adorable Fun In The Snow stamp set. This set includes lots of sweet ice-skating penguins and bears, making it perfect for both Christmas and Winter cards.
I made a slimline card that measures 3.5″ x 8.5″. First, I sponged the bristol cardstock with Blueprint Sketch, Chipped Sapphire, and Black Soot distress inks to create a night sky. Then, I splattered it with thinned acrylic paint to create a snowy effect and adhered the cardstock to my base. Next, I cut a snowy slope from white cardstock, inked the top with Blueprint Sketch, and adhered that to my card.
To create the pond, I cut some white cardstock and added some Peacock Feathers and Blueprint Sketch distress inks to give it a frosty look. I used foam tape to adhere the pond to my card so as to create added dimension. Next, I colored the skaters with copics and used a black glaze pen to darken their eyes and noses. To add polka-dots and stripes to the scarves and earmuffs, I used a white gel pen. Finally, I adhered the skaters with foam tape, along with a sentiment from the stamp set to complete the card.
The copics I used for the bears are BV20, BG70, E01, and E000. For the penguins, the colors I used are BV20, BG70, C7, C5, C3, and C1. Lastly, for the scarves, hats, boots, and earmuffs, I used YG17, YG03, YG01, B29, B26, B24, B21, BG07, BG05, BG02, B000, R46, R37, and R35.
Take a Leap of Faith Card
For my second card, I used the fun Take A Leap Of Faith stamp set. I just love the cute animals jumping on the trampoline!
Firstly, I stenciled clouds on the front of my card with distress ink to create the sky background. Next, I sponged Mowed Lawn distress ink on bristol cardstock, cut it with a grass die, and splattered it with water to create the splattered effect on the grass. Once dry, I stamped one of the sentiments from the stamp set and adhered the grass with foam tape. After that, I colored the stamped images with copics before adhering them with foam tape also.
The copics I used for the trampoline are C7, C5, C3, and C1. For the bunny, I used E55, E53, E51, E50, E01, E000, and R30. To complete the card, I used W3, W1, W0, and R30 for the cat and BV20 and BG70 to shade the clouds.
I hope I’ve inspired you to get inky today!
