Happy New Year!!!
May the new year bless you with health, happiness and creativity 🙂 !
I finally could make some cards over the last week of 2021 using some new items from Hello Winter Collection by Penny Black. Today I want to share three of them with you.
The first card is featuring the sweet snowman family from Hug a Snowman set (30-887). I made a one layer card!
I stamped the image on a Canson XL watercolor paper panel in black pigment ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. I then watercolored the snowman family very lightly in violet, purple and blue and colored the hats and scarfs in vibrant colors. I then drew the hills and a bit of light blue background. To add the blue sky I first cut a frame as a mask using a die from Stitched Frames die set (51-709), placed the mask on the panel and ink blended Salty Ocean DI. To add some interesting texture to the card I dry embossed the panel with the die that I used to cut the mask.
The sentiment from When Snow Falls (30-881) set was stamped in black and clear heat embossed. I adhered the panel on a white cardbase and the card was finished!
The second card is featuring the lady from Cozy Cuppa cling stamp (40-810). This stamp image has a tiny bird looking at the lady from the table but my card is showing only the lady with a cup of hot beverage.
I stamped the lady on a watercolor paper in black and watercolored her in warm red, orange and yellow tones. I colored the top of the panel in light brown.
I cut a frame using Snowflake Frame die set (51-565) from Canson Mixed Media paper and watercolored the top part in light brown and gold.
I adhered the colored panel on a white cardbase and foam mounted the frame on it.
The sentiment is from Snow Beauty set (30-850). It is a mini set with fabulous winter themed sentiments ! I added a yellow rhinestone on the snowflake of the hat to finish off the card.
The last card for today is showcasing the Winter Blooms cling stamp (40-800). Again I used a frame to give a finished look to my card.
I stamped the Winter Blooms image once on a gray A2 panel in gray ink and again on a watercolor paper panel in Antique Linen DI. I cut a frame from the gray panel using a die from the Stitched Frames die set (51-709) and set it aside.
I then watercolored the beautiful bouquet. After watercoloring I added some shades and details to the image using Polychromos colored pencils. I drew the stamen using a black fine liner and stamped the sentiment from When Snow Falls (30-881) set on the colored panel in black.
I adhered the colored panel on a white cardbase and foam mounted the gray frame.
That’s it for today!!! Hope you enjoyed looking my cards 🙂 !
There will be more winter themed cards posted soon!!!
Wishing you a great start of the New Year!
