I was so happy to get my Simon Says Stamps December card kit the other day! I love the stamp set, Gifts of Love, and the papers included are cute, and, and, okay, it's just really cute, everything is really cute! Lookie:
STINKIN CUTE!!! (YILM!)
I decided to use the Gifts of Love set that comes in the kit with my Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol to color the cat.
I also used my new Molotow masking pen. I stamped the candy cane first, then put masking fluid over it. I then made sure it was very dry by using my heat tool, and then stamped the cat over the candy cane. I could then gently rub off the masking fluid. So much easier than using Post It Notes! I then used my PixScan sheet to cut the cat and candy cane out together.
I stamped the tree in Cool Caribbean ink and embossed with the Rainbow Sparkle embossing powder that comes in the kit. I cut the tree shapes out with scissors because those are easy to get a nice even border all the way around, but I did cut out the star using the PixScan, and as you can see it did a perfect job on even that tiny little shape!
After that, it just needed a little something, so I pulled out my clip selection and used this little spiral clip with a bit of glitter ribbon from Stampin' Up!
