Here's what I came up with, playing with this AWESOME stamp set:Dodge the skier is having an ice day out there, LOL! The snowflake comes from the Doodle Factory winter set.
This is probably my ALL TIME favorite stamp! Isn't Dodge the funniest and cutest ever? I've colored him with Copics, but I think he'd be perfect for paper piecing aswell...so that's what I'm planning to do next time.
Sweet little eskimo Ande, huh? Looks like he's ready for some rubbing noses.
A few old scraps on this one, I love the striped BamPOP PP. It didn't turn out a typical Christmas card, but I hope my niece will like it anyway....and since there are lots of pinks and flowers on it, I believe she will ;)
Thought I'd give the moose Mooth a red nose, but then I realized he's not a Rudolph! Dang! Well, he got some red cheeks anyway..
This old Basic Grey PP goes perfect with the colours I gave to the seal Juno . It's always satisfying to be able to use old scraps, right?
The seal is actually easier to color than it lookes like at first. I've used Copics cool greys and brick beige, and the blender to fade it against the white.
For this card I've used four of the new stamps. Looking at it makes me wanting to create more scenes - and there are plenty of possibilities for that with this stamp set.
This set is already becoming one of my favourites. It's perfect for both winter and christmas themed greeting cards, very usable and versatile! It was my sweet friend Eva who suggested the theme, and this little eskimo girl is actually named after her!
