Simon Says Stamp "Fun and Festive" BLOG HOP + GIVEAWAY


Hello everyone and welcome to Day 1 of the Fun and Festive Release Blog Hop! Make sure to read until the end for all the details and a giveaway!

¡Hola a todos y bienvenidos al primer día del blog hop que celebra la nueva colección "Fun and Festive" de Simon Says Stamp. Leed hasta el final para saber todos los detalles y participar en el sorteo :).

TINY CHRISTMAS SCENE


I created this card with the "Winter Scene" stamp set and coordinating dies. So grateful for dies this time since that tiny deer would be quite difficult tu fussy cut ;).

He creado esta tarjeta con el set de sellos "Winter Scene" y los troqueles coordinados. Menos mal que hay troqueles disponibles porque ese ciervo diminuto habría sido difícil de recortar con tijeras ;).




I used colored pencils for the images and Distress Oxide inks for the background, but what I like most about this card are the details: Enamel dots for the falling snow, Stickles for the snow that is already on the ground and Nuvo Crystal Glaze for the bulbs.

He utilizado lápices de colores para las imágenes y tintas Distress Oxide para el fondo, pero lo que más me gusta de esta tarjeta son los detalles: gotitas Enamel para la nieve que cae, Stickles para la nieve que ya está en el suelo y Nuvo Crystal Glaze para las bombillas.


If you want to know more details about how I made this card you can watch the video below or at my Youtube channel.

Si queréis más detalles sobre cómo he hecho esta tarjeta, podéis ver el vídeo de aquí abajo (o verlo en mi canal de Youtube).

  108. Beautiful cards! I love the yellow/amber sky instead of the traditional blue on your lovely little winter scene you created. It seems to just make the images pop! And the subtle sparkle and shine is a nice touch too. It's there but not so blingy that it distracts from the peaceful scene.

    ReplyDelete
  109. Such a fun release! And I love the inspiration cards!
