Marker Geek Monday: Holiday Owl Sending a Card Scene

This week I’m sharing cards using the Christmas Village and North Pole Backdrop stamps to help set the scene for some other stamps. They look gorgeous on their own, but they also make for some gorgeous Christmas scenes! First up is a very festive scene featuring Holiday Owl Sending a Card! Watch the video below to see it come to life.

The tree is from the Holiday Owl with a Star stamp – I simply inked up just the tree part of the stamp.

Sunday with Tamibella: Oddball Gnome Parents Card

Hi!
Tamara here with you. For this week’s post I made a Birthday card featuring the ODDBALL GNOME PARENTS rubber stamp set. Oddballs are my favourite like of Stamping Bella rubber stamps and really enjoy colouring them. On this card I used mom, dad, fox and mushroom from the set. You get one more image in this set and you can all mix and match it with ODDBALL GNOME KIDS rubber stamp set.

Images were stamped with Archival Ink – Jet Black on 300 g HP watercolour paper and then coloured up using Distress ink pads.

Distress ink pads used for colouring:
skin: vintage photo
hair: antique linen, walnut stain
his outfit: peeled paint, faded jeans, walnut stain, forest moss
her outfit: barn door, fired brick, villainous potion
fox: spiced marmalade
mushroom: barn door, hickory smoke
grass: peeled paint
sky: broken china

To decorate the card I used some papers from my stash and added some forest themed die cuts like tree, leaves, mushrooms …

Sentiment “happy birthday” comes from MINI ODDBALL HAS A PRESENT rubber stamp set.

That’s all from me today!
Hugs, t.

Scenic Saturday with Amybella: Yeti Sneaks a Cookie Scene

Hello bellas!  

Amy here and ’tis the season so of course I have another Christmas themed Scenic Saturday card to share with you. Something about this naughty Yeti Sneaks a Cookie captured my imagination and I just had to give him a home up at the North Pole. Mrs. Claus has made her special batch of chocolate chip cookies to reward all of the little elves for another successful year of toy making. When it came time for the treat all the elves found in Mrs. Claus’ kitchen is a plate covered in crumbs! Unfortunately for Yeti, he’s too big and too covered in more cookie crumbs to go unnoticed as the culprit.  

Because the image stamps the elves and plate out in front of the Yeti I decided to color a tablecloth beneath the plate while creating a wood floor to cover the rest of the space at the bottom of the card. This trick is a simple way to force the perspective and give the characters a bit more separation from each other. Now it looks like the elves are much closer to us, the viewer, than Yeti standing in the doorway. Speaking of that dark doorway, because I knew that the walls would be light colored just like Yeti’s fur, adding the door is a nice way to frame him and have him ‘pop’ within the scene. He is the star of the show after all. 😉

Thanks for stopping by today!
