Hello crafty friends, today is our last day of our September release! And everything is up in our new store! We hope that you have enjoyed this week’s creations, the newsletter tutorial and all the fabulous designers! We have one more stamp set to introduced to you called Winter Friends!

I am so excited about our first “cute” stamp set created just for Christmas! This 4×6 contains 12 images that are so much fun to color or watercolor. I have also created a coordinating cut file that makes layering and coloring that much more fun and easy!

Now lets see some inspiration!

Inspired by Stamping Winter Friends Stamp Set

My first card uses distress markers and Antique Linen Distress Ink. This was so fun to color. I began by stamping in Distress ink on watercolor paper.

After coloring my images with distress markers, I then used a little bit of light grey watercolor paint and created a little shadow around my cute deer and bunny.

For the sky, I grabbed an extra large watercolor brush and some tumbled glass distress marker. First lay down some color onto the sky. Next, get your #6 watercolor color brush full of water and move the ink around to create your sky.

My second card uses Copic Markers. After stamping my images with black ink and coloring them, I added a little hill with a black sharpie. And lightly colored with a light blue copic the outline of the sky.

The cute little stars were stamped using this new set.

Lastly, I used our Festive Greetings stamp set and stamped these sentiments. I used a new technique of stamping twice with the “Joy” using grey and black ink. Thanks Mynn, for the technique, I love how it created a slight shadow effect.

Now it’s time to check out what our designers have been creating with this new stamp set. Don’t forget to leave them some love, I am choosing random winners from ALL blog posts this week!

    Very sweet… and the koala is certainly unexpected (not a classic Christmas character), but it’s rather fun to be different!
