For my cards today, I used the Merry Crow Stamp Set. For my first card I kept things really simple, I don't know about you, but with 162 cards to do each Christmas, I try to come up with a couple of easy ones!! I stamped the Merry Crows twice across the card and colored their hats with Copics and added a little glitter (of course!). I then added a couple of strips of Sparkle N Soft using the amazing 3/4" Tear-ific Tape. Here is the finished card, and here are the full instructions:
For my second card, I painted the background using different embossing powders. I then stamped the images on top, colored in with Copics and added extra texture, using some Mudd Puddles! Such fun!
Here is the finished project:
Here's a close up, so you can see the texture of the Mudd Puddles:
....... and here are the full instructions for the card.
