Winter Friends Card by January Guest Designer Toni Maddox

Hi, everyone!  Toni of Frankie Helps Craft with my second guest design card for January. I think this one is my favorite of the lot.  Love plaid much? Why yes I do!
Winter Friends Card by January Guest Designer Toni Maddox | Sweater Weather Stamp Set and Plaid and SnowFall Stencils by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade

I started the card by using the Plaid Stencil with Distress Oxides Candied Apple and Peacock Feathers. I then added snowflakes using the Snowfall stencil and a white pigment ink.  What a fantastic combo.  I love it!  I set that aside to dry fully while I colored up the Sweater Weather Critters using Copics that coordinated with the plaid. Swoon!

Winter Friends Card by January Guest Designer Toni Maddox | Sweater Weather Stamp Set and Plaid and SnowFall Stencils by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade
I next die cut the aperture and sponged the card base lightly with the Peacock Blue Distress Oxide for the background beneath the critters. I used a white pigment pen to add a few dotty snowflakes. Now when it came time for the sentiment, I originally embossed it in white directly onto the plaid but it was visually lost.  See what I mean?

  Winter Friends Card by January Guest Designer Toni Maddox | Sweater Weather Stamp Set and Plaid and SnowFall Stencils by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade

Embossing it on the blue strip made such a difference. Btw, I sponged the blue strip with the Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide, ombre-style. Love!

Winter Friends Card by January Guest Designer Toni Maddox | Sweater Weather Stamp Set and Plaid and SnowFall Stencils by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade

Now I didn't stop there.  Recall I had cut the aperture from the plaid layer and was certainly not going to let that go to waste! I used it as a backdrop for one of the Loveable Llamas with a big pile of birthday presents on its back. So cute!

Winter Friends Card by January Guest Designer Toni Maddox | Loveable Llamas Stamp Set and Plaid and SnowFall Stencils by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade
I used the same Copic colors to color up both cards with the addition of BV23 which is my favorite shadow color on the llama card. I added it around the blanket, along the bottom of the llama as well as beneath its chin. What a difference in depth, aye?


Thanks for joining me today! See you next week!
