Winter Wishes

This weekend, I had a chance to get into my craft room and try out some of the new stamps that I purchased awhile back.  The Color Layering Cool Fox stamp set from Hero Arts was first on my list.

I wanted my fox to be a silver fox, so I looked up “silver fox” online and saw that they are actually mostly black with gray accents.  Using my stamp platform, I stamped the first layer in black and then added the second layer using Hero Arts Shadow Ink in Silver.

I had this idea to have the fox kind of stepping into a snowy scene from the outside of the card.  To do this, I created a background on a light blue notecard using a stencil and some embossing paste.

For the ground I created a snowdrift using a die and some holographic glitter paper.

I die cut a heart into some Hero Arts Layering Paper and added that as a frame over the top with foam tape.  I really like the shades of blue with the black fox.  I feel like you get a chilly, fresh winter feel with these colors.

The sentiment and flowers surrounding it are from Hero Arts’ Color Layering Dimensional Bird stamp set.  The flowers are stamped in the Hero Arts Silver Shadow Ink too.  I haven’t used this ink pad in a long time and am now rediscovering how nicely it stamps with just a small bit of shimmer.
