September 25, 2017

This week we are featuring projects using our adorable Sledding Critters stamp & die sets.  The projects this week are amazing so be sure to stop by each day to see what our amazing design team has for you.  Today Yainea has the cutest card and tip on how to make a custom stencil as well.  Check it out!

Hello there!

It's Yainea here to share a card and a little tip on how to stretch your supplies!
Today I'm sharing a card featuring the cute Sledding Critters stamps and dies.
I started by stamping them on Bristol smooth cardstock with a waterproof ink and then used my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and a waterbrush to color them.

Because the image is full of critters and I used bold colors for my coloring, I decided to keep the rest of the card simple. I created a little scene with some favorite dies: the new Cityscape Elle-ments and the super versatile Picket Fence Elle-ments. And because it's  Christmas scene card, I wanted to add some snow. I love adding texture to my cards and a stencil seemed a great option to do that so I decided to create my own!

This is something really easy to do, you just need a piece of acetate and a die. I used the Falling Snow die, running it on top of my acetate piece several times until I have it completely covered of "snow holes". Then I placed my custom stencil on top of my piece of cardstock and applied some snow  embossing paste.

Once the background is covered with snow, make sure to clean everything with water so you can keep using your new stencil forever :) Then let the snow dry and you're ready to finish your card!

I adhered my scene panel to a kraft card base where I heat embossed the sentiment of the card and,
as a little detail, I used some Glossy Accents on the bear glasses, several colors of Nuvo drops on the Christmas lights and some twine for the top of the card :)

I hope you like my project and give a try to my little tip. You can create your own stencils using a lot of different big and small dies from different sets, just have fun!

Thank you so much for stopping by, have a great day!
