Hey fellow crafters! Kim here with a quick card using SFL’s Arctic Sentiments stamp setand Carta Bella’s Christmas paper pad. This little moose is just so darling I had to color him and give him center stage. It’s funny I was so excited to put him in the center of the circle that I forgot to put a shadow underneath him to ground him and I am just now realizing that he’s floating in that circle. I’ll have to fix that…oops! I guess there is always tweaking that can be done right?
For this little moose I stamped him with Memento Dye Ink in Tuxedo Blackthen colored him with Prismacolor pencils. I am still learning with my pencils so when I color with pencils I don’t really do a lot of blending I just color. This card came together quickly which isn’t always the case but sometimes it’s nice to have the ones that are cute and quick because if you are anything like me you are still making Christmas cards even into the middle or maybe late December.
Hope your holiday season has kicked off brilliantly and you are getting in some extra time with friends and loved ones. Take care and do a little something crafty for yourself!
This project was not my original idea as I’ve seen it around on Pinterest and such. I just loved the idea! I though I “wood” make these for my daughters teachers, paras and classmates for Christmas. They make a very cute gift or stocking stuffer for a friendly cost.
I stamped the images from the MFT Sweater Weather in the Woods stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I then colored the images with my Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers. I read somewhere that they had better luck with no bleeding if they used their Spectrum Noirs. The COPIC Markers with the brush bibs tend to bleed on the wood. I think the key is to use a marker with a bullet nib. I guess the best thing to do is to sacrifice one of the wood slices and try out different markers on it and see which one works best for you.
The other cool thing about these wood slices is that they come already pre-sanded and pre-drilled with holes. Plus a big wad of rustic twine was included.
So if you’re looking for quick and easy gift try making these wood slice ornaments. Your recipients will love them!
