Today, I used four stamp sets and a stand-alone die to create a festive party! Oh, how I love those Comfy Creatures! I wanted to create a little family that mimics the Minecraft costumes my family made for Halloween. Since there was no beaver, I used the bear from Sending My Love. I almost drew in a couple of big teeth. LOL My son was a koala bear for his third Halloween and he used to call himself our little koala bear so that's what I used for him. Naturally, I'm a panda! ;)
Since I didn't have the coordinating dies for Sending My Love, I used the panda head die and it worked very well. I know that the koala bear isn't wearing any clothes but my son is loving his winter mittens and gloves right now so I figured it looked enough like gloves to work. Plus, the drumstick looked odd sitting there without hands holding it.
The stamped part of the sentiment is from Merry Sentiments. I layered the glitter gold Merry Word Die with two layers of craft-a-board to give it dimension to match the critters.
The food items are from Summer Picnic and they work so well for this festive scene! All of the stamping was done with Versafine Onyx Black pigment ink and heat embossed with sparkle clear embossing powder. It adds glitter without making a mess! I used washes of colour in the background that mimics the colours I used to colour the critter family.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
