True Spirit of Christmas

Good morning! If your on the east coast I hope you made it safely through the storms this past weekend with no damage. We had winds up to 60mph! Spring surely came in like a lion.

I wanted to share our new challenge over at Stamp Ink Paper . This week our challenge is Four Legged Friends

Stamp Ink Paper Challenge #140 Four Legged Friends

Since I have been on a roll with making Christmas cards I choose a deer for my four legged friend.

Here is what I created

True Spirit of Christmas

I started with a Basic Black card base and then added a layer of Marina Mist. The next layer is a piece of Whisper White that I embossed with the Stampin Up Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder and sponged the lower embossed areas with Marina Mist ink. Next I die cut an oval in whisper white and masked off a 1 inch circle and sponged the sky with Marina Mist ink. I also sponged a few shadow areas on the bottom area. I removed the 1 inch mask to reveal the moon and stamped the deer, from the Stampin Up Christmas Deer set, using Stazon Black ink and then added some sequins in the deer’s rack. After this dried I die cut the next larger size oval in Basic Black and layered these pieces together and adhered to my card. Next I punched the snowflake (SU) in Whisper White and sponged with Marina Mist ink and applied a small dot of silver Stickles in the center then added to my card using dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin Up set Snow Swirled on Whisper White and then punched out with an SU oval punch and layered on top of a black oval and then adhered to my card. To finish I added the bow I made from Marina Mist seam binding.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Come join us this week, we would love to see what critter you choose for the four legged friends challenge!

Until next time

Happy crafting 🙂
