My Favorite Things – November Release Replay

Hi everyone! It’s time for the November My Favorite Things release replay! Today, the MFT design team is taking a fresh look at the most recent release.

My project is a card featuring the newest Ski-sons Greetings stamp set:

Most of the supplies I used for this project are linked in the list at the bottom of this post. I went for a clean and simple design to focus on the skiing bear. I started by creating the snow dust using the ink smooching technique (check a former tutorial HERE) with Distress inks. I didn’t press the paper in the ink but the ink (on acetate) to the paper. The ink smooching technique is super easy but as I only had to ink a little area, I had to mask the rest of the surface to keep it clear. Once it was dry, I lightly blended blue Distress ink over the background for more contrast. I stamped the sentiment to another white carstock, cut it on the diagonal and adhered it to the ink smooched panel using foam pads. To finish off my card, I colored the skiing bear, cut it and fixed it to the card front with foam pads.
