Hey everybody! If you enjoy making Christmas cards then it’s never too early to get a start and if you enjoy sending a lot of Christmas cards then the earlier you start the less stressed you’ll be. This Sloth Christmas stamp by Stampendous is all about taking it easy through the holiday season. So here’s a run down of my card with this cute little sloth:
patterned paper from Carta Bella’s Christmas collection
stamped in memento ink Rich Cocoa
colored with Copic markers as follows: For the sloth’s body E79, E59, E29, E34 (also used E34 for his face and nose.) Hat R24, R29. String of lights R46, R24, Y13, Y15, YR04, YR18, G09, G05, B21, B29, BG99 for tops of lights. Leaves YG23, YG13
the sentiment is stamped in versa mark ink and then used Wow! Embossing powder in black fine detail and hit it with a heat gun
The circle that slot figure and leaves are adhered to is a 3″ circle and the fishtailed flag is 2.5″x 4″
filled in the white parts of the hat with Stickles Frosted Lace
added glossy accents to the Christmas lights and his little nose
So that’s this week’s card with Christmas Sloth by Stampendous. Thanks so much for stopping by and seeing what we have in store for you. Don’t forget about the big sale going on now while Teresa is off visiting her sweet Grandbabies! Have a great weekend and I hope you get to do something fun!
Fall is my favorite season! Living in Florida it’s not because of the weather, although if you’ve lived in Florida long enough you do notice a change in the air but it just doesn’t qualify as a season for us. What I love about Fall are the decorations, the colors, the changing leaves (pictures mostly), the flavors and for me personally the reminder that the holidays are on the way.
While making this card I remember being downright giddy because when it comes to kid’s clothing ALL colors come in to play! Bright, fun, funky and I was so excited to get to work on these images. Recently when it’s time to color people images I make a concerted effort to not make them all the same. I am intimidated when it comes to coloring different ethnicities but I have a big desire to do so. That of course means practice, practice, practice and being brave when choosing colors I may not be used to blending. So I held my breath just a bit and stepped out of my comfort zone and I am so glad I did!
I love this Fall Kiddos stamp set from Sunny Studio, this is the second card and post I am doing with this set, really great images! These kids look like they are just having the most fun day and exude happiness. I cannot wait to send this card to someone I love. I’ve been a bit chatty in this post so I will give you a quick run down for what I did with this card:
used Doodlebug Design Flea Market 6×6 paper pad for background. The flowered pattern is 5 1/4″ x 3 1/2″, the cloud paper is 5 1/4″ x 1 1/2″, and the 2 strips of orange paper with the leaves pattern on it is 5 1/4″ x 1/2″, the card base I put it on and what became the frame for this little scene is 4 1/4″ x 11″ scored and folded at 5 1/2″ to create this landscape card
Kim here with one of the sweetest stamp sets from Sunny Studio Stamps, Fall Kiddos. I had so much fun coloring up these little guys and gals. I stamped out all the images using Lawn Fawn ink in jet black which is alcohol marker friendly. Then I got busy coloring with my Copics.
I really thought all of my characters were going to go on the card until I started putting everyone in place and realized that just wouldn’t work unless I made them stand on each other and they needed room to jump and throw leaves! I picked out a few for this card and set my other little kiddos aside for another time. Once I got knew where I wanted them to go I was able to position my sentiment which I then stamped in Versafine Ink black onyx, used clear embossing powder on and heat set. (I even remembered to use powder buddy so the embossing powder wouldn’t stick where I didn’t want it, go me!)
It needed one more thing so I got out the fluffy cloud dies from Sunny Studio Stamps, cut out some clouds, inked them up just a bit with tumbled glass distress oxide ink and my sky came together. Added some bling with a Spectrum Noir sparkle marker in clear and adhered it to a card base using Lawn Fawn glue tube.
I just love the sentiment on this card from the Fall Kiddos stamp set and completely agree that playing is NEVER wasted time.
Thank you so much for stopping in and spending some time with us today. I hope you are able to find some time to play today.
