Scenic Village

HI all! Today I'm participating in the Hero Arts October 2017 My Monthly Hero Arts blog hop!

This kit is jam packed full of adorable images and versatile dies, and today's card uses both of those...


To start the card, I made a background by using the Star Confetti die as a stencil, and inking a kraft card base with Unicorn White ink. I stamped the flying santa in the upper corner, and then began building the little village.


The images were all stamped in Black, colored simply with a Carmine Red ZIG pen, and then some Stickles were added for a bit of sparkle. I tucked the buildings in between mountains and trees, die cut from the amazing kit dies.


To finish the card off, I die cut a speech bubble from Yes Stamp and Cut and then heat embossed a sentiment from Color Layering Wreath in White. Adhered the bubble to the base (I'm kind of obsessed with speech bubbles) and that finished the card!
