Happy Remembrance Day Friends and I hope you all had a lovely weekend. I am super excited to be also posting on the Tonic Studio Blog today!

So are you all getting into the Holiday Spirit yet? I am itching to get my Christmas Decor up as we had our first snowfall here in Edmonton (Alberta, Canada) and it is starting to look a lot like Christmas. Well even if my house isn't decorated yet, my crafty area definitely feels like Christmas as all I see these days are Christmas Cards in the making, like this super cute one I am sharing with you all today.

  CARD DETAILS

For my card today I decided to play with the CELEBRATE LIFE stamps US | UK and paired them with the FREE digital download stamps CHRISTMAS OUTFITS to dress up these cute critters for the Holidays. (Download yours now to dress up any of your Garden Party Critters US | UK)

To begin, I printed off the CHRISTMAS OUTFITS first onto Bristol paper, I then stamped the Critters and present images I wanted to use onto the empty spaces of the printed sheet.

Next, I added a very small amount of Shimmer Powder (colors used listed at the end of the post) to the wells of a paint palette. I then added a few drops of water and mixed up the powder to create a shimmery paint. I then used a water brush to paint in all the images. (I will have links at the end of the post of all the supplies today.) Once the images were colored in I used the ScanNCut to die cut the images out.

To embellish the tree, I thought it would be fun to add some dimension using Nuvo Drops (see links at the end of the post).

Here are a few close-up photos of these shimmery Christmas cuties! To a few of the Critter images, I cut off the arms to dress them in sweaters like the little bear below.

This slimline finished card measures 8 1/2 inches long by 4 inches wide. To add some shine to their noses, cheeks, eyes, etc. I added drops of glossy accents.

Here is what the card looks like when the sunlight hits it. I love how the Shimmer Powders are so amazing and versatile to use. Aren't these colors so pretty with all the sparkles?!

Have you tried coloring with the Tonic Shimmer powders yet? It feels like coloring with metallic watercolors, the finish is so sparkly! I hope you will give this a try I had so much fun water coloring with them.

I hope you got some inspiration from this Slimeline Christmas Critter Card done using Shimmer Powders. Thanks so much for stopping by today and I wish you all a wonderful week! 

Until next time... Happy Crafting 👋
