Kidz-Winter girl!

Hello hello!

As I promised you earlier, I’m back with yet another Christmas card! This time it’s all sparkly and shiny…just perfect for the Christmas season! I really had a blust playing with this lovely Bugaboo image and my Tim Holtz stencils!

Quick Instructions:

I started by printing off and coloring the image. I used Copic markers for that and finished it off by adding Wink of Stella on the white details of her outfit. For the background I covered the whole panel with Lindy’s Stamp Gang Magicals- Bachelor Button Blue. Then I used the TH Mosaic stencil and sprayed water through it which I dabbed off with a paper-towel to lift some of the color. Next I applied black soot Distress ink through TH- mini stencils set 21 to create the trees and add more interest to my background. I used Spellbinders dies to die cut a white panel and I heat embossed the sentiment. Then I adhered everything down to complete my card!Job done!

Supplies used:

  • Kraft Cardstock paper – white
  • Versafine Onyx Black ink
  • Copics: C1,C3,C5,C7, B97,B95,B12,YG03,YG17, YG67,E11,E51,E00, E57,E37,E53
  • Lindy’s Stamp Gang Magicals – Bachelor Button Blue
  • Tim Holtz -Distress Inks: Black soot
  • Bugaboo – Kidz Winter girl digital stamp
  • Sweet Dixie – Have a wonderful Christmas stamp set
  • Stampers Anonymous -Tim Holtz Collection- Mini Layering stencil set 28
  • Stampers Anonymous -Tim Holtz Collection- Mini Layering stencil set 21
  • Spellbinders Borderabilities -A2 Bracket Borders One
  • Versamark Ink
  • Clear embossing powder (unbranded)
  • Heat tool
  • Sizzix Big Shot Machine
  • ZIG- Wink of Stella clear glitter brush pen
