New Year Snow Bunnies Card

Hey everyone!! I hope that your weekend has been fabulous. My mom and I spent the afternoon yesterday finishing up the last of our holiday shopping (and picking up a few goodies for ourselves, got some really pretty new eye shadows). Can you believe Christmas is soooo close?! It is amazing how fast it is coming.

When you’ve got a few minutes, I would love for you to head over to the SP Facebook Page (“like” us if you haven’t already of course!!) and answer our status question from yesterday:

If you could have ANY sentiment (For Valentine’s Day and/or Friendship). What would it be??? I am going to grant some wishes 🙂 and then give away some stamps too!

And, yes, that does mean I am working on some NEW stamps!! YAY!  It is a mad rush towards the finish line so I am going to be sending out my new designs to have them made into stamps by the first of 2012.

So with all that out of the way. . . let’s start talking about Day 5 of Sami’s 12 Days of Christmas.

This card is actually a New Years card, but I know people send those around the first of the year so I thought I would throw one into the Copic Christmas lineup.

 Card Details:
  • These cute little bunnies are a part of the Beatrix Potter A Winter’s Tale Set from Crafter’s Companion.
  • I colored these cute little guys with my Copics from iCopic.com. *Wrote down the colors and now can’t find them* LOL if I do, I will put them here. By the looks of it here are my best guesses: YG23, YG25, E31, E33, E35, BG01, RV04, RV06 and RV11, We shall see if I was close 🙂
  • The sentiment is from the Bold Sentiments II Holidays Stamp Set, which contains a mix of sentiments for Halloween, Christmas, Holidays, and New Years! Such a great set!! I used the coordinating Bold Sentiments II SVG Cut File to create the die cut shape for the sentiment and then I just stamped the sentiment (in Marina Mist ink from Stampin’ UP)
  • I cut out the image along with a scalloped circle from the Cricut Accent Essentials cartridge.
  • I applied ink around the edges of the sentiment shape and circle, using the  Tim Holtz Ink Applicator Tool and Pretty in Pink ink from Stampin’ UP.
  • I then sprayed over the circle with Frost Sheer Shimmer Spritz and let them dry.
  • On every scallop I added a small adhesive rhinestone, from Stampin’ UP.
  • The patterned paper I used is from the Let it Snow Paper Pad by Dovecraft. This is a mat stack, which means it measures 4.5 X6.5, so you can mat your photos with it, but I actually like the smaller size because it is perfect for cards!
  • I added additional interest to the card with my ribbon,twine, button border. I used some old Stampin’ Up ribbon, Cherry Divine Twine, and a Baja Breeze Corduroy Button to get this strip.
  • The card base is Crumb Cake/Kraft cardstock from Stampin’ UP.
  • I used the Large Corner Rounder from EK Success on the bottom corners of the card base and patterned papers.

Copic Tip #1:
GLITTER IT UP

Glittering up your Copic creations with glitter spray, like Sheer Shimmer Spritz is fun and easy! Because Copic are alcohol based, and glitter sprays are water based, you don’t have to worry that your glitter spray will mess up your beautiful coloring! I just LOVE the look of the subtle glitter over the colored image!!
Copic Tip #2:
GROUNDING
That’s right, ground your images. No, I don’t mean take away their ipod or punish them (I am so funny LOL). I mean add the ground underneath their feet so they aren’t floating out in white space. On this image, I added snowy ground under their feet, but you could do something as simple as adding W1 or C1 as a little shadow under their feet. Adding that little shadow GROUNDS the image and gives the illusion that there is a floor beneath them.
