Christmas … And Some Sweet Animals

Hello everyone! It’s Anita here and I am so happy to once again guest design for Evelin T Designs! I have two cards to share with you today.

Tis The Season

For my first card I used the cute snowman and mice from the Good Tidings To You stamp set. First, I cut a panel of watercolor paper and used Peacock Feathers and Wilted Violet distress inks to make an inky background. Then, I spattered water drops and once the panel was dry I heat-embossed snowflakes on the panel.

Next, I used foam tape to adhere a snowy slope and added a scalloped frame to create interest. I colored the snowman and mice with copics and then fussy-cut them. To add polka-dots to the snowman’s scarf, I used a white gel pen. Finally, I applied crystal glaze to the snowman’s nose and buttons and adhered all the images with foam tape.

Copics Used:

Snowman – BV20, BG70; R11; E27, YR18, YR14, YR12, YR00; N8, N6, N4

Mice – W5, W3, W1, W0; E02, E01, E000

Scarves – R59, R37, R35; B29, B26, B24, B21; YG17, YG03, YG01

Gifts – BG07, BG05, BG02; R59, R37, R35; B29, B26, B24, B21

You Warm My Heart

For my second card I used some cute animals from the Coffee Loving Critters stamp set. To start, I diecut a panel from bristol card and sponged it with Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide Ink. Then, I added a strip of pattern paper and black cardstock along the bottom edge of my card to ground the animals.

I colored the animals with copics, fussy-cut them and adhered them with foam tape. To make the eyes pop, I used a black glaze pen on their eyes and noses. Finally, I heat-embossed the sentiment on black cardstock and adhered it to my card with foam tape.

Copics Used:

Cat – W3, W1, W0; E01, E000

Bear – E35, E33, E31, E30; E01, E000

Bunny – E53, E51, E50; E01, E000

Cups – B05, B02, B01, B000; E44, E43, E42; G46, G43, G40; R89, R85, R83, R81

Cookie – E27, E25, E23

I want to thank Evelin for inviting me to guest design! I had so much fun and I hope I’ve inspired you to get inky with Evelin T Designs.

Fun-Loving Animals

Hello everyone! It’s Anita here with you today and I’m so excited to be guest designing for Evelin T Designs! I have two cards to share with you.

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!

Hugs, Anita
