Auzz Trinklets N Crafts ~ Christmas

Hi everyone,

This month's theme is Christmas at Auzz Trinklets N Crafts and I have a BEARY cute card to show you all. πŸ»πŸŽ„



~My Process~

First I cut my card base at 8 1/2 by 5 1/2 inches, and folded it in half. Then I cut my card front (kraft cardstock) using My Favorite Things "A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX Set 1" ( 4 1/8" x 5 3/8" ).

I stamped the 'Merry Christmas' sentiment using Mama Elephant's "Bella Letters" with Tim Holtz Distress Oxide inks "Candied Apple" and "Lucky Clover" with the Tim Holtz stamp platform. I did one colour at a time and carefully removed the ink from either side of the stamp to achieve the 'two-tone multicoloured look'
I then cut out the sentiment with My Favorite Things "Stitched Fishtail Flags STAX" ( 5/8" x 4 1/2" ) die using the Sizzix Big Shot but altered the length.



I stamped the tree, star and tree trunk from My Favorite Things "Oh Christmas Trees" with Tim Holtz Distress Oxide inks "Fossilized Amber", "Lucky Clover" and "Walnut Stain". The hats, bears and presents were stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink so I could use my Copic Ciao markers to colour the images in. The bears are from Heffy Doodle's "Beary Big Heart" and the hats and presents are from Lawn Fawn's "Holiday Party Animal". I coloured the images in and cut them all out, the pink bear image is originally hugging a love heart, but I cut around the bear as I only wanted to use the bear in this project.

I adhered the card front, sentiment and images with Tombow's Permanent Adhesive Tape Runner.

I added some Wink of Stella to the white on the christmas hats, ribbons on the presents and the star. I originally had nothing on the tree, but it looked unfinished so I added Tonic Studios Nuvo Drops "White Blizzard" to represent baubles and I used a Wink of Stella fine tip pen to 'join' the baubles together to look like sparkly tinsel. I also added some Sakura black glaze pen for the bears noses.

  1. These bears are SO cute and certainly make me smile. They sort of have that 'warm fuzzy' feel about them, don't they?
