When I saw this Christmas Goose stamp set, I just knew I had to have it! There is nothing funner or more whimsical, than an animal all tangled up in holiday lights :) I absolutely love this image! And, the sentiments on this set are so punny. They are:
All I want for Christmas is five minutes of peace and quiet;
Seasons's Greetings from the funny farm;
Dear Santa, is it too late to negotiate?;
and Naughty or Nice? decisions, decisions.
And, I also LOVE Sparkle N Sprinkle's glitters! They have the most amazing colors, with rich, velvet smooth glitters, glitters with oomph, tinsel and texture, translucent glitters, opaque glitters, everything you need. Their Frozen Glitters collection is a MUST HAVE, and I got it to make this goose with the Frozen colors: Olaf White, Princess Elsa Frozen, Princess Elsa Frost, Princess Anna Royal, and Princess Anna Fuchsia. I love this glitter collection! Let's say hello to the Frozen Goose, shall we?
I stamped the goose from the Christmas Goose Stamp Set 721 with Tuxedo Black Memento ink. I colored the goose with Copic markers. I colored the light bulbs with Copics that were close to the glitter colors.
The sentiment I chose for this was the "All I want for Christmas is five minutes of peace and quiet" because it totally cracked me up, and is pretty much the truth! I colored a piece of white cardstock with a Copic marker, and then stamped the sentiment in Versamark ink, and heat embossed the sentiment with White Detail EP298 embossing powder. Here is a closeup of the sentiment:
This sassy goose was just begging for a glittery night cap. After coloring the cap with some purple Copic markers for a nice solid base, I brushed on some Brushable Glue 540 onto the cap, and covered it with Princess Anna Fuchsia glitter. Here is a closeup of the glittery cap:
The goose also is wearing some striped stockings. Who doesn't love a goose in socks? I colored his socks with the Copic markers and then used Brushable Glue and the Olaf White and Princess Anna Royal glitters, to match his cap.
I used the three lightest shades of glitter in the Frozen Glitters set for the lights. I colored the lights with Copic markers first, then adhered the corresponding glitter color with Dimensional Glue.
After the goose was done, I die cut him out with a Spellbinders Label Eight. I also adhered some wide Tear-ific Tape to some white cardstock, and die cut out gradually larger frames of Spellbinders Label Eight, and Spellbinders Decorative Labels Eight. I used the Princess Anna Royal, Olaf White, and Princess Elsa Frozen glitters on the layers. I also used some white fun foam to help lift and separate the layers.
This was a really fun card to make, that goose just makes me smile!
And, THANK YOU to Sparkle N Sprinkle for choosing me, along with these amazing Guest Designers, to share Sparkle N Sprinkle products with all of you. I am so truly honored to be part of the SNS team!
