Oh my heart... that kitty is just TOO cute!

I added the sweet Newton's Snowman Stamp Set to my collection recently so I was excited to ink it up for this new challenge! I created a simple scene card using pretty papers from the Christmas Time 6x6 Paper Pad. I actually found this paper in my paper pad already cut and ready to go and it gave me the idea for this card design.

I adhered the snow paper from the Christmas Time 6x6 Paper Pad directly to my white A2 top fold card base that I turned on the side. I trimmed two 1/8" pieces of True Black card stock from Papertrey Ink. I adhered those on either side of the snow paper. A fun trick I like to do in lieu of a mat... less layers for mailing so I don't have to add postage. I found a scrap of white card stock and die cut it with the stitched hill die from the Land Border Die Set. I adhered it at the bottom of the snow paper.

I stamped the sweet kitties and snowman from the Newton's Snowman Stamp Set using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I also stamped the sentiment on another scrap of white card stock.  I colored up the kitties and snowman with a bunch of Copic markers. Once I was happy with my coloring, I die cut the panel using the coordinating Newton's Snowman Die Set. I adhered the kitties and snowman directly to the card. I trimmed the sentiment and popped it up on the card using foam tape. 
Here's a quick list of the Copic markers I used:

Snowman: B0000, B000
Goldfish / Nose: YR21, YR15, YR68
Snowman Hat: V12, V15, N0, N1, N3, N5, N7
Buttons: V12, V15

Kitties Noses / Ears: R00, R20

Kitty #3: N1, N3, N5, YR21, YR15, Colorless blender

I wasn't able to capture my entire process in creating this card but I did record the Copic Coloring for this one. You can check out my video here... Wintry Copic Coloring | Newton's Snowman | Inky Paws Challenge 211 | Newton's Nook Designs.
