Heffy Doodle Quack Me Up

Hi Peeps...

Well I've had a quiet day today - so I took the opportunity to pop into my craft room to do a bit of colouring!  This Heffy Doodle stamp set has been sitting waiting for a little while, so out it came!

I coloured and fussy cut the images - then diecut a circle and did a little Distress Oxide blending on that, to create a background for the images.  I stamped the sentiment also after I'd figured out the image placements.  I adhered the circle to the diecut rectangle panel, then that onto the card base.  I added the images with 3D foam pads to the card, then lastly, added some Crystal Glaze to the duck's beak and the puddle - and some glitter to the sun.

Card Info:
Image and Sentiment - Heffy Doodle Quack Me Up Clear Stamp Set
Dies - MFT Stitched Rectangles and MFT Pierced Circles
Distress Oxides - Twisted Citron and Tumbled Glass
Colouring - Copics
Duck and Sun - Y13/15/18 YR04
Puddle - B01
Clouds - B000 BV31

I bought the stamp set from a wonderful little craft shop in Skipton owned by lovely Katy - the shop is called The Stamping Shed and is fabulous to visit if you ever get chance!

MFT It's Penguining to Look a Lot Like Christmas - Take 2

Hi Peeps...

Well these are my last Christmas makes for this year!  I've used the MFT It's Penguining to Look a Lot Like Christmas for my cards...  colouring and fussy cutting them.  Then I created a snow scene for the background - using an MFT Stitched Rectangle die.  I used Distress Inks to give the colour, then splattered with water and white paint.  I cut a little snow bank with an LFT Stitched Hillside Border, and added that for the penguin to stand on.

Lastly, I adhered the penguins with foam pads, giving them a tiny shadow with a Copic BV31 marker, then added a tiny sentiment from Clearly Besotted.

There's four penguins in the set - so I created four cards - the others are below.

Now, I just want to wish everyone that follows me a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!  Thank you for taking the time to check out my makes..  it's always very much appreciated!

Paper - Scrap from Stash
Colouring - Copics
Bears - BV31
Scarves - B34

I popped the image up onto fun foam to give the card dimension..  I think it makes a difference.
