Ice Skater Girl - MFTWSC309

Good morning my friends, I hope you are keep safe and warm today.  The snow is currently coming down like crazy, so I'm hoping to stay inside this afternoon.

Today I made a card using the current sketch from MFT Card Challenges and the Pure Innocence - Ice Skater stamp set from MFT Stamps.


I coloured the little girl with Copic markers, except for her sweater which I paper pieced with My Mind's Eye - Mistletoe Magic 6x6 paper pad.  I think she is just adorable.



I used several different paper from the paper pad for the background as well as some card stock.

Polar Bear Skate

Hello again my friends, I am back with the failed background for the Ice Skater girl from my previous card.  I thought this background suited the Polar Bear Pals better.



The background took quite a while to complete including drying time of course.  The first thing I did was cute a panel from 110lb white card stock with the largest die from the Blueprints 13 die-namics set.  I also used the die to cut out a piece of copy paper which I then ripped to give it rough edges on both sides. I then used the copy paper as my masks for added some distress ink to the sky and pond.

For the sky I used a mixture of Tumbled Glass and Stormy Sky distress inks. I then took the Snowfall stencil from MFT Stamps and some Light Modeling Paste to make the snow in the sky.  Once that was dry, I again used the Light Modeling paste and a plastic palette knife and added some snow, leaving the texture quite rough.  While the "snow" was still wet I sprinkled it with Clear Rock Candy Distress Glitter to add some sparkle.

For the pond I used Tumbled Glass distress ink to colour it and then I drew a few squiggles with a white gel pen to look a bit like the marks the ice skates would leave behind.  I then covered the whole pond with some Glossy Accents which I left overnight to dry.

I coloured a couple of the bears from the Polar Bear Pals stamp set, and added one to the pond skating and the other to the snow sitting watching with a mixture of foam tape and glossy accents.

I pretty happy with the final look of the card. Here are a couple of more pictures showing the texture and dimension of the card.





Below is a list of the supplies I used.

Stamps: MFT Stamps - Birdie Brown-Polar Bear Pals
Dies: MFT Stamps - Blueprints 13
Inks: MFT Stamps - Black Licorice Hybrid Ink,  Distress Inks - Tumbled Glass and Stormy Sky
Copic Markers: W00, W1, W3, R00, R20, R21, R22, BG10, BG11, BG53, G12, G14, G16, B21, B24, B26

You Glided Right Into My Heart

Hello my friends, I hope you are having a good weekend.  It is very cold and sunny today with a chance of some snow tonight. (Hopefully not a lot).

A few days ago I coloured and paper pieced the cute little Pure Innocence - Ice Skater girl from MFT Stamps.


I had an idea in mine to have her skating on a pond surrounded my snow but the vision in my head didn't quite work out. (The background I did make, I am using for my next card instead.)  I pretty much stuck to making my normal snowing background but this time I made it into a slider card using a couple of the Slider Discs from MFT Stamps.  They really are quite handy and I definitely think I will order some more.

Here is the finished card.

Christmas Deer

Hello my friends, I hope you are having a good day so far.  I am currently in love with some of the newest Neat and Tangled stamp sets so I just had to make a couple of more cards.

For my first card, I combined the deer from the Into The Woods stamp set with the smaller deer from the Santa's Wonderland stamp set to make a soft and I think, very sweet card.  I used Shaded Lilac and Stormy Sky distress ink to make a soft coloured sky and used the Confetti stencil from Heidi Swapp with Light Modeling Paste to make the snow in the sky.
