My Favorite Things - August Vault Release Day!

The door to the vault has been swung wide open at My Favorite Things and the release is now live and you can buy all of the featured and re-released stamp sets!   My slimline card here features the very fun Ready, Set, Snow illustrated by Birdie Brown.







Here's how I created this card.   I started out by creating the basic card form using Sno Cone Cardstock the Slimline Starter Die-namics together with Slimline Stitched Square Die-namics and for the snowy edge I used Stitched Slimline Snow Drifts Die-namics.

I ink blended a panel with Speckled Egg Distress Oxide Ink then layered over that my white snow edge, this was applied with foam tape for dimension and over that I layered the triple window die-cut, this was all backed with foam tape and applied to my card base.




I used a white gel pen to dot in some snow and some white Nuvo drops for some of the snow to be a little larger and more dimensional.

I stamped the images and coloured them with Copic markers.  Here's my colour palette:-

Bunny - E44, E43, E42, E41
Cheeks - R00, R20, R21
Penguin - W5, W4, W3, W2, R000, YR07
Visors - BG0000
Greens G16, G09, G02
Reds -  R39, R29, R08

Points were highlighted with a white gel pen then were die cut using the coordinating die-namics.   They were backed with foam tape and applied the scene.




To finish up I added some swoosh marks as the bunny's hat has blown away and I stamped the sentiment from Bitty Holiday Wishes to a long sentiment strip included in Slimline Starter Die-namics and using red ink.

Last but not least I used Stickles to glitter up the fir trees and with that the card was complete.

Happy shopping from the Birdie Brown sets being released today, I hope you enjoy working with them!
