Today I have my last Feature Friday with Concord and 9th and we are showing off the new Furry Friends stamp set. So many different elements with so many options!! So of course I had to make two cards.
First up, I chose the reindeer and decided to turn him into a little Rudolph for Christmas. My first Christmas card of the year, I think. I stamped the wreath and added some clear rhinestones for sparkle. Then I stamped the line image for the deer and added the inner solid images.
These are remarkable easy to line up, especially if you have a MISTI. I did the same for the antlers and again, easy to line up. I colored a rhinestone with a red Copic Marker to add to the nose…so fun!! Finally a sentiment from one of my favorites, O Christmas Tree. I put the image panel over some great red patterned paper to help pull the red from the nose and to give it a festive feel. These would be easy to make in a stack (I need to get on that)!
For my second card, I thought the unicorn option would be fun. I used some leftover panels that I had created using the Marbled Smooch technique and as part of my Smooch Accent Ink review for Splitcoaststampers. The panel on the back side of the shaker and the paper pieced mane on the unicorn were cut from a pattern I created. I thought the blues and purples were a natural for a unicorn. I stamped the horn, colored with some Gold Lamé Smooch and then stamped again one the Smooch was dry to cover if I went a little out of the lines. Again, the MISTI is perfect to make this fast and simple. The frame is from the coordinating die set in the bundle…love those stitched details, don’t you? I added a variety of sequins to match and put the shaker and sentiment on a base of Fog Gray.
It has been such a privilege to work with Concord and 9th this month. I’m grateful for the chance to help show off these amazing products and I have become even more of a fan of C9 (if that is possible). Thanks for stopping in today. See you soon!
