I just love Polar Pals Stamp Set!! Adorable images and punny sentiments—win-win in my book! I’m starting with this card using the CUTE little narwhal image. I stamped it three times and colored with Copics, then arranged them in a sort or circle to tie in with the sentiment—“I’m going in circles without you” kind of thing. What do you think? Does it work?

The background is a watercolor wash on heat embossed Whimsical Waves background and the sentiment was also heat embossed. Foam tape was used to dimension and I used some Morning Dew Nuvo Jewel Drops for air bubbles. It took me a little practice but I think I’m getting the hang of Nuvo Drops. Expect to see more :)

My second card is definitely Christmas themed.

Another watercolor wash background then the sentiment was heat embossed. Tip: sometimes watercolors or ink will stain white embossing so stamp and emboss AFTER doing the wash. I hand tore the edges of my watercolor paper for a deckled look—expect to see more of that, too ;-)

I popped the panel up on foam tape on the card base then added some Let It Snowflake Too Die-namics cut from Silver Sparkle card stock and some Metallic Silver Lining Nuvo Crystal Drops. Yep, I’m liking them.

And that’s it for today from me! Thanks so much for stopping by! See you back tomorrow for Day Four of MFT’s October Release Countdown!

  2. These are cute, I love the gentle, soft look of the Merry Christmas card. On the other it looks like the narwhals are swimming circles around the sentiment, really cute.
