Playing in the Snow!

Hello Crafty Peeps!

It’s Maureen back with another sneak peek at the adorable “Seasons Tweetings” stamp set.  I want to thank Gerda, Mace and everyone at Gerda Steiner , LLC for having me as a guest designer, it has been such a dream come true and a heck of a lot of fun as well.

Onto the card. . .

These adorable birdies are so fun to create with.  For this card I wanted the “whole gang” together.

I started by drawing lightly with my pencil a snowdrift and then I stamped each of my cute birdie friends out on some masking paper.  Then I stamped each bird on the card where I wanted them and put the mask over them.  I also masked the bottom of the card.  I used Tim Holtz Salty Ocean to ink blend in the horizon/ice line.  Then I removed the masks and got coloring!

After I finished my coloring, I cut my panel using a scalloped die frame and matted it on a Michael’s red shimmer card stock panel.  I decided I wanted to play with more elements from the kit, so I drew a “wire” line from the “Seasons Tweetings” sentiment and stamped the ornament and star included in the set hanging down from the wire.  After those were colored, I added in some sequins for a “snow effect” and finally I used my white gel pen to clean up a few places, add highlights and some texture to the Santa hats on the birds.  Finally, I added glossy accents to the birds eyeglasses (I mean how adorable is he!) and to the Christmas ornaments and stars, just to make them pop a little more.

Here’s another look at the finished card:

I hope you enjoyed looking at what I have created with this adorable set and that it will inspire you to create your cards and projects with it.

Maureen, this card is adorable!! You’ve added so many little details from the critter’s shadows in the snow to the glossy accents. Have loved your cards and posts as a guest designer. Hope they’ll add you to the team full time. You’d be a great asset to them and an inspiration for us!!
