Hi there,

I'm here today to share with you another card from the new Reveal sets this month. This little guy, the Christmas Goose comes with a few fun sayings - so I decided to match him up with an older set for the sake of a laugh!

Firstly, I stamped the farm scene (from Set 652) on white glossy cardstock in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I colored it roughly with Memento inks, London Fog, Summer Sky and New Sprout with a dauber, before going over the inks with some Copics: C5, E31, E35, Y17, for the details.

The Christmas Goose was stamped in Versamark ink on white glossy and heat embossed with Black Detail. He was fussy cut and I went around the outline with the black Copic to get rid of any stray white card. I then went on to color his hats, socks and lights, with some brighter shades of  Copics.

The colored light bulbs were given a little dab of Dimensional Glue to make them shine. The sentiment was stamped in Versamark on to the background (after applying the anti-static powder) and heat embossed with Black Detail. It gave a nice raised, detailed impression.

The background piece was centered to a piece of light blue cardstock, edged with 1/4" Tear-ific Tape. Diamond Dust Glitter (which is chunkier glitter) was then applied to the remaining exposed tape, to add a little extra bling to the piece.

Our Christmas Goose was then attached to the card front with Dimensional Foam, to finish. That ends my share for today. Hope I've inspired you to take another look at some of your old stash and stamp sets and use them in other ways than they were intended!

Be ready to join us again next week, when we will be doing an impromptu mini blog hop, featuring some other funny little birds!

  8. Am so debating on getting this delightfully cute Goose - Love how you've done him up along with the barnyard scene, and his glistening tangle of lights & Santa hat. I can smile at his expression...have seen the same one on DH's face some years at Christmas with the untangling lights. Just a totally cute image, and you've shown it off to the max! TFS & Hugs
