Happy Friday, all! Today I’m doing a video collaboration with my good friend Jennifer McGuire. We each recently received a package from Sunny Studio with their latest release and thought it would be fun to challenge each other to use some new stamps! And we threw in a card sketch, too. :)
(Wondering what I used in this video? Everything is linked to multiple sources in the thumbnails at the end of this post, or in the text below. Compensated affiliate links used when possible).
For my card, I turned the sketch upside down and created a super tall skinny card. The finished card measures 3.5″ x 9″, which fits inside a standard #10 business envelope (although you could make a custom envelope for it, too).
I stamped one of the cute polar bears and a gift package from the Playful Polar Bears stamp set in some black Copic-friendly ink and then masked the images so I could add some blending. To create a nighttime sky, I used four colors of Tim Holtz Distress Ink: Picked Raspberry, Seedless Preserves, Chipped Sapphire, and Black Soot.
On a side note, I find myself using those colors over and over again (because I LOVE them), and yet I haven’t needed to reink any of my mini ink pads yet. :)
Anyhow, after the sky was created, I added itty bitty stars using a white gel pen.
The bear and present were colored using Copic Markers. Be sure to watch the video to see the color numbers on screen.
I hope you loved today’s card and video! Be sure to check out Jennifer’s response to our challenge at her blog! :)
