I have two cards today featuring this fabulous new release!
The first uses a new set called Jingle Bells...
Isn't this image just amazing when colored? I used Copics to color it and lightly sponged blue ink around it to create a faux sky. A touch of glitter glue brightens up the snow while layers of red and green card stock make the white die cut layers pop. I stamped a coordinating sentiment from this set on white card stock and used a ribbon die cut to highlight it. I nestled it on the bottom so you could see the entire image. This image is so realistic! I believe I can even hear those bells ringing!
And my second card today features another fabulous set, Holly Wreath...
I just had to color this amazing image with Copics as well! I colored each leaf to mimic holly with light green edges by layering a yellow green ink first, then a medium tone and finally a dark green in the center. I then went back over each with the lightest color to blend. I used a white gel pen to add subtle highlights on the berries. This image is amazing! A couple of gold bells added at the top add just the perfect touch. I embossed the sentiment with gold to match the real jingle bells.
And a few sneek peeks I have shared this week...
this one using Jingle Bells
and this one using Apples
I just love them all! Don't you? Now I have Christmas carols running through my head...
Anyone else ready to start their Christmas card stash????
