Have a Holly Jolly Holiday
Hello friends! Leanne here to share a card featuring some of the fabulous new stamps and dies from the Deerly Loved Release. One of my favorite products from this release is the Snow Buddies stamp set. I absolutely love the whimsical style of this set and that it’s just packed with fun accessories to dress up the snowmen.
For my card today I have stamped one of the snowmen, a few accessory items, and the birds. I colored them with Copic markers. I’ve prepared a background for the scene by lightly ink blending some Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink onto some Bristol Smooth card stock. I also splattered the background with some watered down white paint. I cut a snowy hill out of some white glitter card stock using one of the dies from the Hill Borders Honey cuts.
To make the frame, I used the new Deckle Edge A2 Honey Cuts. I nested the 3rd largest inside the largest one. This results in a perfect frame about 3/4″ in width to allow me to stamp the sentiment all the way around the frame. The “Have a Holly Jolly Holiday” sentiment is from the Fa La La stamp set. I was able to stamp the sentiment fully four times. This did leave a small space which I filled by adding a little holly and berry cluster. The holly leaves were cut using the holly dies from the Threshold Card Honey Cuts. I cut them out of white card stock and then colored them with Copic markers. I added the berries with some Nuvo Jewel Drops in Strawberry Coulis. Once I had all the images for my scene and the frame in place on an A2 sized card base, I used some Nuvo Crystal Drops in Gloss White to add a scattering of dots for falling snow.
There’s so many fun holiday stamps and dies in this new release. Keep checking back here daily for continued inspiration from the Design Team. Have a wonderful day!
