Welcome back to the My Favorite Things November Release Countdown! Today, we’re introducing Birdie Brown’s newest illustrated set called Ready, Set, Snow. I love this set! Not just because it’s cute (because of course it’s absolutely adorable), but because I love to snowboard! Unfortunately, snowboarding does take require a lot of resilience in my knees and I just don’t have the same strength (and courage!) as I did when I was younger. It’s also been a long time since I had the opportunity to snowboard given that I live in Southern California and snow is a far drive away!
Well, I’m sure you’re here to listen to me rant about snowboarding, so let’s take a detailed look of my card today! I stamped all my images from the stamp set in Milk Chocolate hybrid ink. Then, I colored the images with copic markers and used my white gel pen for highlighting and details. Next, I die cut all the images out with the coordinating dies.
I decided to pair the images with one of my all-time favorite cover-ups called Die-namics Horizontal Snow Drifts Cover-Up. I love the vertical version of it just as much! I die cut the entire panel over white card stock, and then with each inner strip, I blended it with Tumbled Glass distress oxide ink. The 2nd to bottom strip was also heat embossed with the sentiment ‘ready, set, snow!’ in silver. Then I inlaid each strip back into the frame.
Since I didn’t want to inlaid pieces to fall apart, I adhered it down to my base card first. Then, I added all the various images to my background either with liquid adhesive and foam squares.
Such an adorable stamp set! I especially love the cute little penguin. Hopefully this winter, I’ll get to make trip to Lake Tahoe for a day on the bunny slopes!
