I have a pair of adorable Robins for my release day post!

Tweet Holidays has lots of cheeky little Robins to choose from and numerous seasonal sentiments.

I chose these cute little friends, snuggled up in a scarf - please note the one on the stamp is plain, I added my own pattern when colouring it.

They were stamped with Cement Gray Hybrid ink on Copic suitable card and coloured with Copic markers and then cut out using the matching Tweet Holidays Die-Namics.

Robins: YR12, E13, E41, E42, E43, E44, W00, W0, W1, W3, W5, W6, W8
Hat/Scarf: R22, R24, R27, R37, B0000, B000, C1, C2, C3, W2, W4, W5

As for the card base, I cut a piece of Smooth White card using a Stitched Square die.  Then cut a mask using a Stitched Arch Stax and adhered the negative space to the square die cut.

I sponged Tumbled Glass, Milled Lavender and Stormy Sky Distress ink on to the open area.  Once the ink had dried I dry embossed the Stitched Arch Stax on the square die cut for added dimension.  Then it was time to add a snow flurry with a White Gel Pen.

A sentiment from the Tweet Holidays set was stamped with Versamark ink and heat embossed with Wow Metallic First Frost Embossing Powder.

Both the Robins and the decorated square panel were adhered to a top folding square card base with foam tape.

Today I have a group of snowmen that appear to be from Wisconsin.
I may be English but my son Ben loves American sports and he's a huge Green Bay Packers fan - Go Cheeseheads!

I stamped the main image from Cool Christmas on Copic suitable card with MFT Cement Gray Hybrid ink and coloured it with Copics before cutting it out using the matching Die-Namics.

The background scene was created using the Christmas trees from the set along with additional doodling by yours truly, again with Copic markers.  The snow highlights were added later with the aid of a White Gel pen.

Car: R22, R24, R27, R37, R39, N4, N6, W2, W4
Snowmen: BG0000, C0, C1, C2, Y12
Clothing: YR23, YR24, YR27, G24, G28, C5
Trees: BG90, W1, BG93, BG96, BG99
Snow: BG0000, C0, C1, R0000
Sky: B0000

The sentiment, again from the Cool Christmas set was stamped with Versamark ink and heat embossed with Wow Metallic First Frost Embossing Powder.

To give a little added dimension to the card, I adhered the die-cut snowmen in their car to the background image with foam tape, before mounting on to a plain white card base with a Cement Gray mount.

You don't have long to wait until you can put this adorable stamp set in your shopping cart!

Thank you so much for visiting my blog today.
Until next time, happy colouring.

Die cuts today with a smidge of Copic colouring!

I couldn't help myself, I just had to shade the deer to give them a little definition, what do you think?

The card base is a top folding A2 card from After Midnight cardstock.  I created the background from layers of Blue Breeze and Sweet Tooth cut using an A2 Stitched Rectangle Stax 1 die.  With the latter white card then trimmed with the Snow Drifts Die Namics.  The top white layer was adhered with foam tape for added dimension.

Subtle clouds were added with the aid of Sweet Tooth Pigment ink and small natural sponge.

As for the Delightful Deer, one was cut from Natural Card whilst the other from Kraft card, along with both sets of antlers.  Shading was added using Copic markers.  The darker deer was glued to the card whereas the paler one was adhered using foam tape, again for added dimension.

Snow: BG0000, C00
Deer: E41, E42, E44, W1, W2, W4

To finish I added a heat embossed sentiment from the Snow Globe Sentiments set with Versamark ink and Wow Metallic First Frost Embossing Powder on Sweet Tooth cardstock.  Once dry I cut it out using Slanted Sentiment Strips and mounted it on to the card with foam tape.

Only a few more days to go.
What are your favourites so far?

I will be back tomorrow with another project from the upcoming release.
