Good morning! I’m so excited to be hopping along to celebrate the newest and exclusive Kris Lauren Christmas Bears release from Colorado Craft Company! I decided to use two of the new sets, Snow Globe Bear (though technically I didn’t use the bear in the set) and Knitting Bear, to create a card and tag!
To start, I stamped the snow globe and deer duo from Snow Globe Bear and the knitting bear and penguin from Knitting Bear with copic friendly ink and colored them with copics. I colored the background of the snowglobe with copic markers and then stamped and heat-embossed the snow. I used a glittery white embossing powder to create a sparkly effect. I decided that the tag could also be used as an ornament so I stamped the ‘2022’ onto the globe as well before adding the deer and some red and white twine!
For the card, I blended a background using distress oxide inks in shaded lilac, uncharted mariner, chipped sapphire, and black soot. Then I splattered the panel with water and white gouache and set it aside to dry. I tore white cardstock to create a textured snowy ground and added a few accents with copic markers. I adhered it to the blended panel and then popped up the critters with foam mounting tape for a little dimension!
And that’s it! Make sure to check out the full release as well as all the other adorable Kris Lauren designs that Colorado Craft Company has to offer! Thanks so much for stopping by and have an amazing day!
