Deck the Halls with Inky Paws Blog Hop

Hello Everyone,

I am so excited to be part of the 10th Annual Deck the Halls with Inky Paws Blog Hop by Newton’s Nook Designs! If you need some super cute inspiration for your holiday crafting, grab a cup of tea or coffee and hop along with us!

For my set of cards I first stamped and coloured the images from the Dear Santa stamp set using Copic markers. The colours I used are: R89, R46, R27, R24, W9, W7, W5, W2, W0, Y15, YG67, YG17, YG03, BG57, BG53, BG11, E57, E55, E53, E51, E13, E11, E00. Then I cut everything out with the coordinating dies.

For the background I used the Frameworks die set and cut the biggest die in the set from kraft cardstock 3 times. On the top I heat embossed the Snowfall Roundabout stamp with WOW Sparkling Snow embossing powder. It looks gorgeous with the glitter! I also stamped a sentiment on each panel with SSS Cherry ink from the Dear Santa set.

I wanted a little red embellishment on the top of each card so I white heat embossed the “hohoho” on a red banner which I cut with the Banner Trio die set.

After popping up the Santas on the cards with 3D foam squares, I used a clear sparkle pen to add some shimmer to the Santa costumes and emphasized the eyes with a black glaze pen. I also used drops of glossy accents on the ribbons.

This time of the year I really enjoy creating coordinating tags for my cards, so here is an easy one using the same supplies: I cut the smallest postage stamp die from Frameworks from kraft and white cardstocks and glued them together.

I masked off the edges of the kraft side and heat embossed the Snowfall Roundabout stamp on it with the same embossing powder. I added a present and a candy to each with 3D foam squares and a “hohoho” banner to the top.

As embellishment I used green sparkly eyelets and red twine. Isn’t it cute?
