And this new release is no different...the Winter Alpaca stamp set is adorable! I knew I wanted to use him for this post! I decided to combine him with the new Ready, Set, Snow shaker add-on die for a holiday shaker card!
Here's the front of the card:
And here's the inside:
I thought it would be fun to make it seem like he put on a scarf when you open the card! I created the background by watercoloring distress inks in chipped sapphire, evergreen bough, salty ocean, and tumbled glass onto the background. I added several layers of color to get a darker background. I dried it with my heat gun and then added a layer of watered down iridescent medium for a little shimmer and then finished it with paintbrush flicks of picket fence distress ink. It created a really shimmery, sparkly winter sky! The alpacas were colored with copic markers and I added a little more iridescent medium to his scarf so it would sparkle when it caught the light!
I assembled the shaker and filled it with sparkling clear sequins and lots of white and clear seed beads in various shimmery shades. When I stamped the alpaca for the front of the card I used post-it tape to cover up his scarf while I was inking the stamp and then I removed the post-it tape prior to stamping so the scarf didn't stamp. I created a second distress ink background, sealed the back of the shaker, and adhered it to the front of the card. I stamped and heat-embossed the sentiments from Winter Alpaca and finished the card with a little teal and silver twine!
