Sugarplum Dreams Nutcracker Suite Card

Hi there!  I’m coloring again today.  In fact, I’ve been rummaging through my stamps to find a few more outline stamps.  The coloring has been so much fun — I want to do more!  Today, I created a simple Sugarplum Dreams Nutcracker Suite card.  I’ll definitely have to play some more with this set.

I started with a Pink Pirouette cardstock base.

Then, I added a doily followed by a layer of Whisper White.

Next, I stamped the Nutcracker and Mouse King with Memento Black.

I like to stamp off first so the outline is more gray than black.

Using Stampin’ Blends markers, I colored in the nutcracker.

For him I used:

Light and Dark Night of Navy,

Light and Dark Smoky Slate

Light Cherry Cobbler

Light Pink Pirouette

Dark Daffodil Delight

Ivory and the Color Lifter.

Then for an extra detail, I used the Fine Tip Glue Pen to emboss the crown and his buckle.

For the Mouse King, I colored with:

Light and Dark Rich Razzleberry,

Light and Dark Smokey Slate

and the Color Lifter.

Stampin’ Blends will be available in my store on November 1.

I used the same technique to emboss the Mouse King’s crown and his sword.

Finally, the ballerina is on an oval cut with a Stitched Shapes Framelit.

You can find the rest of the details about her in yesterday’s post.
