For Day 4, we are showcasing with the Newton’s Snowman stamp set and coordinating dies with the (mini) Happy New Year Stamp Set.
To make my first card, I started by inking up this panel with some Evergreen Bough distress oxide ink.I used the Petite Snow stencil to add texture to the background.
I stamped the image with some Rich Cocoa Memento ink and colored the images in with alcohol markers. I used the coordinating die to die-cut the image. I also stamped the trees from the Festive Forest stamp set and used the coordinating dies to cut them out.
I die-cut the mountains and snow using a die set from my collection and some Neenah Desert Storm and White glitter card stock. I adhered this onto my colored background with my ATG gun.
The snowbanks were die-cut using the Sky Border and Land Border dies. I used my BG Copic markers to add a little bit of color and adhered them onto the card panel with my ATG gun and foam adhesive.
Next, I adhered the trees and my focal image with some liquid glue.
I finished my card design by using my white gel pen and draw some lines and dots to the Snowman’s scarf and also used some Stardust Stickles for added texture. Here’s another look:
My next card is very simple. I used the circle die from the Circle Frames die set to die-cut some masking paper. I adhered this onto my A2-size card panel and started stamping the champagne glasses and other images from the Newton’s New Year stamp set. I used some alcohol markers to color the images in.
I gently removed the mask and stamped the Happy New Year sentiment with Memento Rich Cocoa ink, and used the same alcohol markers to color them in.
I finished my design by adhering this colored panel to an A2 size note card and added some Stardust Stickles to the bubbles for more texture. Here’s another look:
