Deck the Halls with Inky Paws Blog Hop!



Well hello, friends!   Can you believe it is December!   So much to do to get ready for the holidays - I've been making Christmas cards left & right!    Today I'm celebrating the holiday season with Newton's Nook Designs' Deck the Halls with Inky Paws Blog Hop!    And surprise!  There's a fantastic new stamp set available today called Whispering Pines.   I used it to create my card!
Let it Snow | #handmadecard | Newton's Nook Designs | Kimpletekreativity.blogspot.com
I masked the snow hill and created the night sky with Distress Inks.   I stamped the trees with Versafine Black ink twice using my Misti tool.   I love that this stamp set can be used the way i used it here - in a more solid application, or it can be used to create a much softer, watercolor feel!  And how about the adorable dog and cat!   Oh my, they are my favorite!   I placed them together, looking off at the trees with the snow falling all around them.   I used a Tsukineko Irresistible Pico Embellisher for the snow, and added red, green & clear rhinestones to a single tree. The perfect finishing touch for this card was a snowflake embossed front panel.

I hope you have fun hopping around and checking out all the inky inspiration!   There are fabulous guests hopping along with the NND team - make sure you check out all of the stops along the hop!
