Keeping Christmas Inspiration Hop

Welcome to the Keeping Christmas Inspiration Hop!  If you are looking for some inspiration for Christmas cards, you have come to the right place.  Our team does a monthly Keeping Christmas Inspiration Hop! We will be sharing Christmas creations on the 25th of each month.

The whole idea is to have some Christmas cards and projects in our stash all ready to go for December 2019!

I used the Season's Tweetings stamp set by My Favorite Things.  This stamp has been retired but there are lots of other sweet Christmas images in their shop.  I stamped the little girl and bird on Neenah cardstock, colored them with copics, and then diecut them using the coordinating dies.  I used a black glaze pen on the girl's and bird's eyes and added some highlights using a white gel pen.  I diecut a watercolor panel using a stitched rectangle die .  I mixed water and distress inks and used a paintbrush to paint the ink onto the watercolor panel.  I cut a snowbank from watercolor paper, sponged distress ink along the top, and stamped my sentiment on the snowbank.    I adhered all the images with foam tape for dimension and then added a few sequins for some sparkle.

Copics Used:
Skin - E13, E11, E21, E00, E000, R20
Hair - E27, E23
Coat and Hat - R59, R37, R35, R32
Scarf and Hat - E44, E43, E42, E41
Boots - E47, E44, E43, E42, E41, E40
Bird - E33, E31, E30; R29, R24, R22; Y18
