Christmas Creatures

Hey stampers, Anni here! The days are gettinger more grey and colder and I bet a lot of you had a great halloween yesterday! So for the people in Germany the next holiday ahead is christmas! And to remind you and to get you in christmas crafting mode :) I have a christmas card for you today!

I love all the cute Create a Smile critters! And I really love the christmas hat that is included in the set Friends in the Woods! I want to put it on every creature - so I said to myself: Why not! 

  • Search for all the critters in your stash that can wear the christmas hat!
  • Color them and fuzzy cut them! (ok I am honest that took some time but I am weird - I love that!)
  • Arrange them and put the card together!

  • I colored the cuties with copics but because they are on the smaller side I like to use pencils (Polychromos) for the shadows and highlights (I hope you can see it in the next photo).
  • When you use pencils it is important to go over the black lines with a black pen to get crisp lines! I use a black gel pen which is even more intense for the eyes and the noses!
  • Don't forget to go around the edges with a black marker after fuzzy cutting! It makes it look like you did a perfect job on the cutting!
  • If you are not into fuzzy cutting you could put the group together with masking or you let your silhouette do the fuzzy cutting!
  • I think the animals from Jungle Fever would be great, too, for a card like this!



Coloration: Copic, Polychromos
Ink pads: Hero Arts, Memento, Versamark
Gel Pen: Signo Uni-ball in black and white
Embossing powder: Stempelbar
