Friends of Winter


It's the time of year when companies begin releasing Christmas stamps and I start thinking about making Christmas cards. Truth be told, I have stamps I purchased last year that I didn't use in my card making 😜 but I am a sucker for Christmas product. I was able to pop out of the Scrap Shotz booth and visit the Studio Katia booth at the Great Canadian Scrapbook Carnival last weekend and picked up the super cute Friends of Winter stamp and die set.

I paired the stamp set with the new Lawn Fawn Knit Picky 6x6 patterned paper and created this:

How cute is that elf in his knit sweater and hat?

 I stamped the image on white Neenah card stock and on Lawn Fawn patterned paper The face, mitts, pants and shoes are coloured with Copic markers. The sweater and hat were fussy cut from the image stamped on the patterned paper while the elf is cut with the coordinating elf die.

I used the Studio Katia Dotted Patterns Set 1 to die cut the rectangle, white mat and circle. I've embossed the white mat with a dot embossing folder and brushed Perfect Pearls in pearl over it. 
The circle is inked with Distress Ink in Peacock Feathers.
Studio Katia clear round drops in small and medium and a lone iridescent sequin provide some shine while Nuvo Crystal drops in Bright Gold become buttons on the sweater and bells on the shoes.

I'm looking forward to making more of these!

Thanks for stopping by!
