Christmas Planning with DT Deni

Good Morning :-)

Auzz Trinklets N Crafts This month are playing around with Christmas. I decided to do something new to me and use some of my new stamps to do a layout in my Planner.

I decided for 2018 I was going to move onto a Kikki K Planner, I ordered both a Large and a Personal. My personal is in my handbag and has all my day to day family and personal stuff and my Large I am using for my Design Team stuff and my Card Business. I am thinking about using another Large for my Card orders lol.. not sure if I can make three work yet but we will see how I go.

I wasn't a big fan of the Kikki K Inserts, they just didn't work for me and my needs so I ordered some planner inserts from Chasing Planner Peace, she has an Etsy Page and a Website.

I have used a stamp set from My Favorite Things called Polar Bear Pals & Matching Dies, which I stamped out using Memento Tuxedo Black onto PPS Copier Labels (Full Sheet). I then ran them through my Sizzix Big Shot with the matching dies.

I cut the Simon Says Stamp Winter Snow Word Dies and the My Favorite Things Snow Capped Mountains from American Crafts Cardstock using Sizzix Big Shot.

I coloured all the stamped images using Faber-Castell Polychromos. I have most of those listed below. This was actually my first time using the pencils and I was quite happy with them.

I hope you have enjoyed my post today, if you have any questions feel free to send me a message or contact me via facebook (all links can be found below).

Thanks for stopping by, Deni

DT Rianna ~ Christmas

Hi everyone,

This month's theme is Christmas at Auzz Trinklets N Crafts and I have a BEARY cute card to show you all. 🐻🎄

~My Process~

First I cut my card base at 8 1/2 by 5 1/2 inches, and folded it in half. Then I cut my card front (kraft cardstock) using My Favorite Things "A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX Set 1" ( 4 1/8" x 5 3/8" ).

I stamped the 'Merry Christmas' sentiment using Mama Elephant's "Bella Letters" with Tim Holtz Distress Oxide inks "Candied Apple" and "Lucky Clover" with the Tim Holtz stamp platform. I did one colour at a time and carefully removed the ink from either side of the stamp to achieve the 'two-tone multicoloured look'
I then cut out the sentiment with My Favorite Things "Stitched Fishtail Flags STAX" ( 5/8" x 4 1/2" ) die using the Sizzix Big Shot but altered the length.

I stamped the tree, star and tree trunk from My Favorite Things "Oh Christmas Trees" with Tim Holtz Distress Oxide inks "Fossilized Amber", "Lucky Clover" and "Walnut Stain". The hats, bears and presents were stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink so I could use my Copic Ciao markers to colour the images in. The bears are from Heffy Doodle's "Beary Big Heart" and the hats and presents are from Lawn Fawn's "Holiday Party Animal". I coloured the images in and cut them all out, the pink bear image is originally hugging a love heart, but I cut around the bear as I only wanted to use the bear in this project.

I adhered the card front, sentiment and images with Tombow's Permanent Adhesive Tape Runner.

I added some Wink of Stella to the white on the christmas hats, ribbons on the presents and the star. I originally had nothing on the tree, but it looked unfinished so I added Tonic Studios Nuvo Drops "White Blizzard" to represent baubles and I used a Wink of Stella fine tip pen to 'join' the baubles together to look like sparkly tinsel. I also added some Sakura black glaze pen for the bears noses.
