Christmas Cuties for the PPA #276.....

Hello dear friends: I have a card to share with you today I made for the Pals Paper Arts Sketch challenge, here is my card.
This cute little Christmas critters are from a retired 2011-2012 Stampin Up! set called "Forest Festivities", I love using my old and much loved sets. I stamped them onto Canson water color paper with Stazon Jet Black ink and colored them with this SU markers and the aqua painter: Riding Hood Red, Tempting Turquoise, Old Olive, More Mustard, Chocolate Chip, Garden Green, Regal Rose, Bashful Blue. I added a bit of Dazzling Diamonds for the snow under the bunny's feet and sleigh. I can't remember where I got that background snowflake stamp but I used Coastal Cabana to stamp in onto a panel of Ninah Solar White card stock and to sponge each little square for a little definition. The sentiment is from the Power Poppy Merry Littles , one of many beautiful images on this set, and it's cut with a label die from Spellbinders, (I'm not to sure about this, I had this die set for a long time now). 
Here is the banner that inspired this card.

    1. Thank you Patti, this stamp set has been with me for a while but, for the life of me, I can't remember where it came from but the images of those pretty snowflakes are so detailed that I thought it would be a great background for this cuties.

    1. Gosh Lisa, I don't have the old catalogs, I always put them in the recycling, I found the year of this stamp set on Splitcoaststampers, going to the Stampin Up! gallery, then, just looked for this set, all the sets are in alphabetical order.
      Thank you for stopping by.

  8. Hola Maria, gracias por tu sentido y hermoso comentario, realmente estamos viviendo momentos tristes en Europa y en el mundo gracias a estos asesinos, porque no hay otra forma de llamarlos. Gracias por compartir tu tristeza por estos aconteciminetos, para mi fue una noche y dias tristes tambien, El 11 de marzo en los trenes de Madrid había gente que conocía y la madre de mi mejor amigo, y estas cosas hacen que se vuelvan a revivir momentos muy dolorosos.
    Una tarjeta preciosa, tierna, alegre y festiva, preciosos colores.
    Un abrazo desde Palma de Mallorca

      Los acontecimientos en Paris fueron de verday horribles, todos hemos sido affectados, sin importar si somos familiares de los inocentes que perdieron la vida a manos de esos desalmados.
