Flurries of Fun


Welcome back to day 4 of Craftin Desert Divas November Release Event.  I am back today to share two separate designs featuring two new stamp sets.

Up first is the new stamp set Skating By, which is exactly what it sounds like…a collection of really cute critters skating.  Here I have stamped out four of the characters from the stamp set and one of the hand written sentiments from the collection.

Using my copic markers I colored in this scene, trying to create a real outdoor skating rink.  Then using my white gel pen, I added some snow flakes fluttering through the sky.  To add just a little bit more, I then added some nuvo drops in Morning Dew, which gives the sky a little bit of sparkle.

My second project today features the new Snow Happy stamp set that features CDD’s exclusive Trolls.

For this card, I stamped out two of the images from the stamp set, colored them with my copic markers, and then fussy cut them out.  I then set aside the stamps and prepped my background.

I then pulled out the new Sorted Shapes 1 stencil, and using two shades of nuvo mousse (Lilac Lavender and Pure Platinum) and pressed the mousse through with a pallet knife.  I also die cut a frame for the card using CDD’s Inside Scalloped Rectangle Dies and some white card stock.  I also die cut a sentiment from CDD’s Sending Dies.  I blended more Lilac Lavender Mousse onto the die cut sentiment and then blended some Cornflower Blue mousse into the wet lilac to create this pretty pale purple.  I then assembled the card using my favorite adhesive, Scor Tape.

That’s it for today’s projects.  Come back tomorrow for the final day of sneak peeks where I get to share one more stamp set with you.  Till then…happy crafting!
