November YNS New Release Hop!

Nov2015HopBadge

Hi all!  It’s time for another YNS New Release Hop!  If you’re following the linky, you should have arrived here from Kymona’s blog.  If you just happened upon my blog post, you’ll want to go back to the beginning at Anita’s blog (linky at the bottom of this post) because there’s a lot of fabulous eye candy you won’t want to miss!

I’m so excited for this release – I love making holiday cards and this release is full of holiday fun!  One of my favorites is the adorable Merry Chris-Moose, but I’m also a big fan of Little Darling Winter because she reminds me of someone…. Winking smile

Anyway, that’s enough chatter.  Let’s get to my cards, shall we?

First up I have an A2 card using Waddles Food Truck Fun and Waddles Holiday Truck Fun:

WaddlesFoodTruckFun & Holidays1

I used the truck from the original Food Truck Fun and the matching die set.  Everything else is from the Holidays add-on set.  Everything was colored with Copics and I added a couple of the new Holly Jolly Sparkly Gumdrops to the tires. 

I added a piece of white cardstock to the back of the food window because that would be the inside wall of the truck.  I did some layering with foam tape for fun.  Here’s a close shot so you can see it:

I used the sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch.  This is also for SSS Monday Challenge – Create something beginning with the letter N (my stamps and patterned paper are brand new).

For my second card, I used a cutting template to make a shadow card:

MerryChrisMoose1

I altered the 5x7 Snowman Shadow Box Card in Make-The-Cut by taking out the snowman so I could replace him with this super cute moose.  I also didn’t cut the back blue panel with the holes because I wanted to do the snow effect with modeling paste through a stencil instead.  I covered the extra snowflakes with matte multi medium and super fine glitter and covered the snowy hills with my homemade shredded Styrofoam.

I stamped the sentiment is Cobalt pigment ink and embossed with clear powder, assembled the card, and added some confetti snowflakes onto the front.  Oh, and the moose was colored with Copics and cut out with the matching die.  BTW, I cut all the card pieces with my ScanNCut2.

This is also for Virginia's View Challenge – All About Textures.

As always, we have a fabulous Hop prize – a $25 YNS Gift Certificate will go to one randomly drawn commenter from all the Hop blogs.
