Today I'm sharing Lien's GORGEOUS card using Snowflakes.
How dreamy is this card?!
Lien is our newest design team member for those of you who missed the announcement. She's fabulous (like the rest of my team is) and you need to follow her if you aren't already. She's also got an awesome YouTube channel.
Every now and then I get a message asking if I carry digital stamps or will be adding new digi's. I get why some like to use digital stamps (I do).
So I am adding these Merry Mice to the shop. I actually had this mouse (in the middle, without a hat, etc) sketched out last spring and I am currently working on a spring clear stamp set and as I'm drawing I got the idea for this set.
Please remember that this digital stamp, all digital stamps are for personal use and not for 'sharing'. I have no problem with customers using my stamps (both clear and digital) to create cards to sell. I think that's great!
I hope you like it. It's pretty darn cute if I say so myself.
The definition of Hygge is 'a quality of cosiness and comfortable conviviality that engenders a feeling of contentment or well-being (regarded as a defining characteristic of Danish culture).'
I'm all about cosy. I would live in pj's and flip flops if I could. ;)
This set could easily be used for a get better card or a birthday card.
I stamped, coloured and fussy cut out the stamped images. I then adhered them with some foam dots for dimension.
For my next card I used some watercolours. I have a quick little video on Instagram that shows how I do this technique. In short, I hold the stamp over the paper and colour in the general shape. It doesn't have to be precise, that's the beauty of using watercolours. Once dry I stamped the image over it.
Originally I was just going to have snowflakes in this set but I thought that was a little boring so I added these two cuties.
I stamped, coloured and cut out the snow cuties. For my background, I blended some Distress Oxide inks (Peacock Feather, Broken China and Picked Raspberry). Using the same inks I stamped some snowflakes.
I usually draw bears, penguins, moose, etc. for my Christmas/winter sets and though it's not fair to the other animals so voila - Wild Winter.
For these cards, I did lots of masking, colouring and fussy cutting (which is my favourite technique).
For areas like under the snowman's arms where there is white space (there's no way I would attempt to fussy cut in those tight spots), I used markers closest to the background colours. Or you could totally leave it as is. I do that sometimes too.
Blending for the background and stamped snowflakes using the same ink.
The next set just came this week. I made a little boo boo and ordered only for my distributor in Europe and forgot to order for my own shop. But I'm adding it to the release anyways.
