I’m wrapping up my last few holiday cards this weekend, and if you’re still working on them as well, I’ve got some more winter inspirations for you today! We’re less than a couple weeks away, but there’s still time!
Today’s card feature some of the holiday stamps from Sunny Studio Stamp’s latest winter release. I especially love the Merry Mice set, the mice are so cute! When I saw those cheese trees, I knew I must create a winter scene with it. I stamped several images from the set in a dark brown hybrid ink and colored them up with copic markers. I then used the matching dies to die cut the images out.
Next, I worked on ink blending a snowy sky and used Pine Needles, Peacock Feathers, Cracked Pistachio, and Old Paper distress oxide inks. I splattered white acrylic paint generously. Then die cut some snow drifts out of white card stock and blended the edges with Broken China distress oxide ink.
After adding my snow layers, I added my images onto the scene with foam tape. I used the large ‘winter wishes’ sentiment die cut from the Layered Snowflake Frame Die. It is die cut out of white card stock and adhered right on the background, and that completes the card!
My next card once again uses the Merry Mice set, but I also borrowed some images from the Santa Claus Lane set. Again, I stamped my images in a dark brown hybrid ink and colored them with copic markers. I die cut the images out with the matching dies.
I ink blended a background with Wilter Violet, Victorian Velvet and Antique Linen and die cut it with a simple circle die. I offset this background on some grey plaid pattern paper from Subtle Grey Tones 6×6 Paper.
I added my images thereafter with foam tape for dimension. For the sentiment, I die cut the ‘merry’ using the sentiment die found in the Christmas Garland frame. I then heat embossed the ‘wishing you a’ and ‘christmas’ from the Santa Claus Lane set in white onto kraft card stock. I trimmed it down to thin strips and added it above and below the ‘merry’ with foam tape.
I hope you enjoy today’s inspiration. Happy holidays folks!
