YNS Supplies: Sprinkles Hoppy Holidays Stamp Set and Dies, Windows for Waddles Die
Other Supplies: Salty Ocean Distress Ink, Clear Wink of Stella, My Favorite Things Hybrid Ink, Copic Markers, 3M Foam Tape
To create this card, I die cut the Window out of my card panel. Then I stamped the sentiment right underneath the window. After that, I stamped my bunny and colored him in using Copic markers. Then I cut a mask out and cover the bunny up so I could ink the area around him. I masked off the window area on the card base and inked up the window area. I removed the mask and attached the card panel to the card base. I stamped the gifts, colored and fussy cut the gifts out. This set has dies but I didn’t have them so I fussy cut them out. I attached the gift boxes using foam tape.
Nice, easy and cute!!
Take a look at my postcard:
The left side is the front of the postcard and the left is the back of the postcard.
YNS Supplies: Sandy Autumn Greetings
Other Supplies: Derwant Inktense Pencils, Archival Ink, Winsor & Newton Cotman Watercolor Postcard Paper
I told you this was my second favorite stamp set from this release!! I love these squirrels. The funny thing is I do not like squirrels at all. The ones by my house are super crazy and they look at you like you are in there space.
To create this postcard was simple, I stamp the image and then watercolor using my Inktense pencils. My inspiration for the coloring came from this image:
Once it dried, I stamped my sentiment. Then I turned the card over and stamped the acorns and watercolor those too!
Super easy and fun. I love playing with watercolors on this image.
So what do you think? I had so much fun creating these boxes and card to inspire all of you and show you the versatility of the stamp sets! Which one of these items are favorite? I would love to hear from you!
