Anita Jeram Candy Cane Mice by Colorado Craft Company

HEY FRIENDS! Just a quick post today. Lots of Christmas things going on — shopping, decorating, organizing — so I’m squeezing in crafting time when I can. But I would be remiss if I didn’t show you this project featuring the new Anita Jeram Candy Cane Mice, part of the new release from Colorado Craft Company. And as always, I’ve linked supplies with compensated affiliate links used where possible at no cost to you.

I used the main image from the Candy Cane Mice stamp set for my card. The set also includes single candy cane stamp and two individual candies. Coordinating dies are sold separately. All of the image was stamped on Hammermill Smooth cardstock using Hero Arts Intense Black Ink and colored with Copic markers (see marker lists below). After coloring, the image panel was trimmed using Hero Arts Infinity Rectangle dies and I stamped the sentiment using Versafine Clare ink in Nocturne. I adhered craft foam to the back for dimension using Beacon’s 3-in-1 Craft Adhesive. then glued front panel was then glued to an A2 cardbase cut from Neenah Classic Crest.

That’s all from me today! See you again soon!

TODAY’S PROJECT

Anita Jeram Dear Santa by Colorado Craft Company

I have three cards for you today, all created using the Anita Jeram Dear Santa stamp set. The set includes clear photopolymer stamps with a dog, a bunny and a mouse writing and mailing letters to Santa in a snow-covered mailbox. The stamps can be used with the coordinating Dear Santa complete dies set (AJ733-D) and the Dear Santa single die set (AJ745-D) both sold separately. This stamp set includes 7 images and 5 sentiments.

Once I got started, I was quickly on a roll making cards. Coordinating dies are also available for this stamp set, although I didn’t use them here.

All of the images and sentiments were stamped on Hammermill Smooth cardstock using Hero Arts Intense Black Ink and colored with Copic markers (see marker lists below). After coloring, the image panel was trimmed using Hero Arts Infinity Rectangle dies and I adhered craft foam to the back for dimension using Beacon’s 3-in-1 Craft Adhesive. The front panel was then glued to an A2 cardbase cut from Neenah Classic Crest.

So let’s take a closer look!

Santa Bunny (again!) by Colorado Craft Company

HEY FRIENDS! In case you hadn’t guessed, the Santa Bunny stamp set by Colorado Craft Company is one of the my favorite images. I don’t usually color an image more than once, but I’ve used this one to make cards (1 and 2), a tag and even did a Copic coloring video featuring the image. So for something a little different, I pulled out my colored pencils and colored it one more time. As always, I’ve linked supplies with compensated affiliate links used where possible at no cost to you.

FEATURED PRODUCTS

The Santa Bunny image was stamped on Stonehenge Drawing Paper using Versafine Clair in Nocturne. I used the multi-colored Stonehenge paper pad, selecting one of the grey tone sheets. This is actually my favorite paper and tone to use for colored pencils. I used Prismacolor Premier Pencils to color the image and applied Gamsol with a blending stump to blend the colors.

To finish, I stamped one of the sentiments from the Anita Jeram Hanging Stockings Mini stamp set using Versafine Clair in Nocturne. I trimmed the panel using one of the dies from Blanket Stitched Rectangles die set. I cut panels from Red Hot and Field Day Card Stock from My Favorite Things. I assembled the layers as shown.

That’s all for today! See you again soon!

Knitting Bear by Colorado Craft Company

HEY FRIENDS! Today I’m sharing another card featuring featuring stamps from the new Kris Lauren Christmas Bears release. This time I’m combining images from the Knitting Bear and Stocking Mini stamp sets to create a cozy fireside scene.  As always, I’ve linked supplies with compensated affiliate links used where possible at no cost to you.

And just a reminder that Colorado Craft Company is offering free domestic shipping (see 3C website for international orders) on November 7th and 8th.

Featured Products:

To start, I stamped the fireplace from the Knitting Bear stamp set on a piece of Hammermill cardstock with Hero Arts Intense Black ink. After coloring the image with Copic markers, I stamped the sentiment from the Stocking Mini stamp set above the fireplace using Versafine Claire in Nocturne. I trimmed the panel using the Chunky A2 Scalloped Rectangles Dies from Simon Says Stamp, applied foam tape to the back, and set the panel aside.

On a scrap of Hammermill cardstock, I stamped the stocking from the Stocking Mini stamp set and colored the images with Copic markers. I cut out the images using the coordinating Stocking Mini Dies. I applied foam squares on the back (I had to cut them to fit) and adhered them in place on the front of the fireplace.

I used the Infinity Rectangle dies from Hero Arts to cut the background layers and assembled the layers as shown.

*** UPDATED – 11/9/2022 ***

I just finished a new video showing how I colored the fireplace. Enjoy!

That’s all for today! See you again soon!

Stockings Mini – Colorado Craft Company

HEY FRIENDS! I’m back today to share another image from the 2022 Christmas Bear release from Colorado Craft Company. This time I paired the new Stocking Mini stamp set with an older Anita Jeram stamp called Santa Bunny. For me, these two images just naturally went together! I also have a new Copic coloring video for you featuring the Santa Bunny image. As always, I’ve linked supplies with compensated affiliate links used where possible at no cost to you.
