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 Smell Like Christmas  stamp set by Gerda Steiner Designs.  I stamped the images on Neenah cardstock, colored them with copics, and then diecut them using the coordinating dies.  I used a black glaze pen on the mouse's nose and added some highlights using a white gel pen.  I sponged Cracked Pistachio and Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide Inks onto Bristol card and then flicked water with a paintbrush.  I added a diecut frame and adhered all the images with foam tape for dimension.

Copics Used:
Mouse - W2, W1, W0; R00; 100
Clothes - C3, C1; R14, R12, R11, R00; G07, G05, G02, G00
Mittens and Boots - N8, N6, N4
Tray - B2, B01, B000
Cookies - E33, E31, E30, E50; R14, R12, R11; G05, G01; B02
