Greetings friends! It is a new month and time for a new red rubber stamp kit. The December kit is loaded with lots of goodies for the winter months. I want to share two winter greeting cards with you today. This is what is included in the kit:

For my first card, I stamped the village in black Memento ink at the center of some white cardstock. I then colored it with Copic markers. I added a little bit of blue Copic marker above the houses so that I would have some transition from the Copic coloring to the Distress Inks I sponged to make the sky. After I added my sky, I spritzed the whole thing lightly with water to create splotches in the sky that look like snow.

For my second card, I once again colored my image with Copic markers, but this time I chose markers that would match the Impression Obsession pattered paper that I used for the background. I often let patterned paper determine which Copic markers I use.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Beautiful cards! I love this kit! As much as I love winter houses (a must have) I also love the rest of this set. Birds are another on my wish list so this set is perfect!

The first village scene is so charming and such a fun pairing of the birds and papers!

Susan said...

Thanks for the great tip on using the paper to determine ink colors. I don't know why I didn't think of that, because I do that with fabrics when I make a quilt! Both cards are wonderful, and I so appreciate your talent.

Great technique for the sky on the village scene and love the color coordination on the bird card. Nice.

The nostalgic Christmas hones are so pretty, I love that sky. The birds are darling, Nice pattern paper choice, it is the perfect colors for these sweet chickadees (In dad's world there were only 3 types of birds, Cardinals, which he sends to me from heaven. Then Blue Jays, and then all the rest were chickadees). Thanks for the smile. Merry Christmas Ms. Laura.
