Christmas Critters


It's been ages since I was in the Craft Cave but today I finally returned to it and I have two cards to share.

First up is for the current Muse challenge where the fabulous Lindsey has provided our inspiration.  As you can see I stuck very close to the layout and just changed up the sentiment and image.  I broke out my Hero Arts ombre ink for the first time to stamp the sentiment and can't wait to play with them some more.  These MFT pooches are my new favourite Christmas images so I'm sure you'll be seeing plenty more of them!

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink, (Cherry Cobbler, Basic Black) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Dog from Happy Pawlidays, Sentiment from Handwritten Holiday) My Favourite Things
Inks:  (Memento Tuxedo Black) Tsukeniko, (Red ombre) Hero Arts
Markers:  Copic
Glitter:  (Clear Wink of Stella) Zig
Gems:  Recollections

This next card is for Freshly Made Sketches and the Anything Goes challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More.  I had fun coloring this Newton's Nook image of Winston the bear heading home for Christmas.  He's definitely ready to celebrate!  

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink, (Red) Paperbilities
Patterned Paper:  (It's Christmas 6x6) Webster's Pages
Stamps:  (Bear & sentiment from Winston's Home for Christmas) Newton's Nook
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black, Memento Tuxedo Black) Tsukeniko
Die:  (Stitched circle) Lil' Inker Designs
Markers:  Copic
Glitter:  (Clear, Gold Wink of Stella) Zig

Welcome back to the cave! These are fabulous Jen, loving the ombre in that big bold sentiment and of course those cute critters are perfect for Chrismtas!

Lindsey said...

I'm still pondering inspiring you to make a dog card. :D I love it, though! You obviously have way more success with HA ombre inks than I ever seem to. Winston is so cute in his festive red vehicle!

You do great with critter cards, Jen. That pup is so cute and so is that bear driving his gift laden truck. So glad you got back in the Cave to make these wonders.
