HAPPY NEW YEAR 2017, Winter Wonderland Heat Embossing, Copics, Shaker Card


Happy 2017 my crafty friends! Meg here, and I would like to wish everyone a happy, healthy and successful year ahead. 2017 is going to be a good one - please enjoy my adorable critter winter wonderland greeting card to bring in the new year.

I stamped a Hero Arts/Basic Grey stars background stamp onto mixed media cardstock using Versamark, a clear sticky ink. I then added white embossing powder and melted the powder with my heat gun. This yeilds a raised, shiny appearence. The stamped, embossed design will then resist water-based mediums. Therefore, I added some distress inks to the panel. I used my mini ink blending tools and 3 different colors of Tim Holtz Distress Inks; Wilted Violet, Cracked Pistacio and Salty Ocean. I am in LOVE with this color combination lately!! Perfect for a cold winter scene!

Once the background was complete, I chose this adorable critter stamp set and colored him using my Copic markers. I used the following Copic marker colors to color the entire squirrel image: C1, C3, V04, V06, V09, BG05, BG07, BG09, N6

I fussy cut out my winter squirrel and was struggling where to go with the card. I then remebered I had some gorgeous Kennedy Grace lilac and ocean water sequins - so had to make shaker card!!!

I used the Kennedy Grace Stacked Stitched Rectagles to make a sqaure frame for the sequin pocket. I cut the frame from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 130lb cardstock 6 times. I adhered each frame together, back-to-back, with the clear acetate window sheet between the top two layers. I added the sequin mixes and then adhered to the inked, star background panel. I added adorable colored critter to the left side of the shaker card and the card was finished!

I hope you enjoyed my Winter Wonderland heat embossing and Copic coloring greeting card. Happy 2017 everyone!!

Don't you just love the beautiful Fall colors in this pic! Here's what I've made for you today:


 I stamped the flower from the Just A Rose stamp set with Memento London Fog using second generation stamping (for no-line coloring) and colored with Copics YR68, Y38, Y35 and YR31 for orange and YG67, YG63, YG61 and YG03 for green.
