Hello Crafters! Today I have something super fun to share...a sneak peek from the upcoming Stamping Bella Holiday Release!! You guys are going to LOVE the cuteness in this release. I had so much fun working with the new images and I can't wait for you to see it all!
First up is a beautiful backdrop stamp appropriately named WINTER backdrop and the most adorable stamp ever called LITTLE BITS “WINTER TREE” and “DEERBALL."
The second I saw the "Deerball" I knew I had to make him slide down the hill! I started by coloring the Deer and the background using my Copic markers. I then fussy cut the deer, leaving a small white border around him. I trimmed down the background panel to just smaller than an A2 size card base so that I could have a border around the entire image. I selected a sentiment from another Stamping Bella set called OWLIVER that I felt went perfectly with this card. I heat it embossed it just over the little house.
Before adhering the panel down, I grabbed a Lawn Fawn slider die and positioned it onto the hill. I ran this through my die cut machine and voila a nice little channel for my Deer to roll down. Next, I pulled out a spin & slide disc from MFT and adhered it to the back of my Deer. I positioned the disc into the slider track and then adhered a small circle I had punched out from white card stock on the other side of the disc. This now allows the deer to spin and slide up and down the slider channel.
Next I applied a double layer of foam tape to the back of the background piece being careful to leave enough space around the slider channel. I find that a double layer of foam tape ensures that the image will slide more freely. Once that was complete, I attached a piece of plain white cardstock to the back so that the white would help make the slider channel blend into the background. Then I placed tape runner all over the panel and adhered it to my card base which was covered with piece of navy subtly patterned cardstock.
For the finishing touches, I added some clear stickles to the snow back to give it a glistening feel. I also used Frosted Lace stickles to add a snow effect on the roof top and trees. I love the way this looks when it dries. Instant snow!
Here's a look at the little Deerball in action!
