Jane’s Doodles – Sending Warm Hugs

After yesterday’s card I just couldn’t put that sweet penguin away! I decided that we all needed a rainbow of penguins to brighten the day. So, I stamped him out seven more times and colored them in fun rainbow colors!

In case you missed yesterday’s card, this cute penguin came from Jane’s Doodles Hot Cocoa set.

Aren’t they just adorable?!? Seriously, how can you not smile at this. It’s so fun!

After using the scan-n-cut to cut them all out I pulled out the Pink & Main slimline plaid die and cut it from white cardstock. For the panel behind the plaid, I blended spun sugar and picked raspberry distress oxide inks and splattered it with water. Then I flicked some picked raspberry splatters on it as well.

Using liquid glue I adhered the plaid to the inked panel and then carefully inserted my penguins into the plaid lines, adhering them with liquid glue as well. It just works best with the distress oxide ink.

For my sentiment I stamped “sending warm hugs” from the same Hot Cocoa set and cut it apart. I used Trinity Stamps Marshmallow Alphabet Dies to cut “warm” from white cardstock 4 times and adhered the layers together. I popped “sending” and “hugs” up with foam strips and used liquid glue to adhere the die cut letters.

I can’t get enough of these cute penguins and just love how this happy card turned out.

I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!

Coffee Loving Cardmakers – Warm and Cozy Thanks!

Hey friends! I’m over on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog for one final installment of Tuesday Tea with Twiddler’s Nook for 2020! I’m still stocking my stash with thank you cards featuring some of my favorite winter and Christmas sets that I wasn’t ready to put away just yet.

Today features a few sets from Jane’s Doodles, dies from Trinity Stamps and a token “thanks” from a Lawn Fawn set. I just love these critters and that hot cocoa stand has me dreaming of snow and cocoa adventures.

For my card, I stamped and colored critters and other images from St. Nick, Warm and Cozy, and Hot Cocoa. Then I used my scan-n-cut to cut them all out and set to work on my background. I cut a slimline panel at 3.5×8.5 and another at 2×8.5 to create a snow bank. Using my images as a guide I used the Trinity Stamps slimline scenic borders die to create my snow. Then, I used that as a guide where to place my trees in the background.

I used Trinity Stamps blending buddy brushes to blend on some light blue ink coming from behind the snow bank and a little pink ink coming from the top for a soft sky.

I adhered my snow bank with foam tape for a little dimension and my images with a combination of liquid glue and foam tape to keep everything nice and level. Once those were all in place, I popped my panel in the MISTI and stamped the sentiment in the open area I left in the sky. I used similar copics to color the thanks as the sky so it coordinates.

I finished things off with some glossy accents on critter noses and beaks, and a scattering of Rainbow Blizzard clay snowflakes from Trinity Stamps in the sky. Last, I added some silver Wink of Stella glitter brush on the top of the snowbank and then blended it out a little with the clear glitter pen.

I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
