Hey, fellow 'Fetti Fans! I took a bit of an unplanned, but well needed blogging/crafting break for the last month. I'm glad to say that my stampin' mojo has resurfaced and I spent some time catching up on my Christmas cards! I kicked off my Christmas card making with the super cute Reverse Confetti stamp set called Marley Moose...SO darn cute!
I LOVE this pretty colour combo that they have over at the Color Throwdown # 233 and I LOVE that the colours perfectly coordinate with the BasicGrey Evergreen 6x6 paper pad!
I did a quick search for a sketch to follow and they have a great sketch over at Sketch Saturday # 340! I flipped the sketch around to fit Marley!
I made my card-base from Sweet Tooth Heavyweight Card Stock and cut the main panel with my Rectangle Die-namics from Red Hot and Cotton Candy Heavyweight Card Stock. I just adore the Reverse Confetti Marley Moose Stamp set.
The Marley Moose Stamp set includes a bow and a toque accessory stamp. I decided to add the toque and did a little masking...I first stamped the toque on my Copic paper, Neenah Solar White Card Stock, then stamped the toque on Eclipse masking tape. I cut out the mask of the toque and stuck it over the stamped toque image, then stamped Marley over it. When I removed the mask the toque and Marley are all one image with the front of the toque appearing to be in the foreground.
I coloured Marley with my Copics and paper pieced him with the BasicGrey Evergreen patterned paper. I also used my Copic markers to add in some shading and to colour the ribbon and boots. I embellished with the fabulous Reverse Confetti Let It Snow Confetti Cuts. I also created the snow drifts cut from Sweet Tooth Heavyweight Card Stock with the Reverse Confetti Doin' the Wave Confetti Cuts. I embellished with some white AC Hemp cord and Pine Green YNS Gumdrops.
I finished of the inside of my card, as per usual. I stamped a shadow image of Marley Moose and again, I masked the toque and then stamped Marley. I also stamped one of the cute sentiments from the Marley Moose Stamp set in Red Hot Premium Dye Ink. I added a few more snow flakes cut with the Reverse Confetti Let it Snow Confetti Cuts.
Thanks SO much for stopping by and havin' a wee peek at my Reverse Confetti card with Marley Moose for the Color Throwdown # 322 and Sketch Saturday # 340!
