It is Zsofi here, welcome to another edition of my Perfect Combos series. Today I take you to the farm where everything is beginning to look a lot like Christmas (and now I know you will have this song going on in your head for all day long, ha ha). I mixed and matched several sets to create this cute scene, let me guide you through the process.
I started with stamping the images from Farmyard fun, Udderly Fabulous and Wanna build a snowman. I used Spectrum Noir Illustrator markers: EB5, EB3, EB1, AG4, AG3, AG2, AG1, AG05, GB4, GB2, GB1, FS8, FS7, FS4, DR4, DR2, DR05, BG5, BG3, BG1, OR1. I cut them all out with their coordinating dies.
While I was die cutting I also cut the elements for the background scenery: I used the Rolling Hills Landscape die and cut it from white cardstock. I also cut a Fence border from brown cardstock, I love that the curves match! I did a quick ink blending on the sky part with Blueprint Sketch and Salty Ocean Distress Oxide inks, spritzed it with water and dabbed it off with a paper towel after 30seconds. I made sure the panel was dry before I used the First Snow stencil with Cosmic Shimmer Ultra Sparkle paste. I also added a little shading to the snowbanks before assembling the scene.
I popped up the images with 3D foam squares for dimension.
I stamped a sentiment from the Watcha Sayin’ now stamp set and cut it out with the coordinating die. Then I white heat embossed another one from Holiday Sentiment Duos on a red cardstock strip and popped both up in place.
As a finishing touch I used a clear shimmer pen and glossy accent to emphasize some details. I also used a white gel pen to add highlights, it totally enhances the whimsical feeling of this card.
I wish you enjoyed today’s inspiration. Don’t forget to show us what you create in our Facebook group, we love to see your cards!
See you soon,
