Minimal Color with Maximum Impact w/Kara

Hello! It's Kara and I'm back again with another old favorite, Winter Pals. This set was released December 2014 and it's just as cute today as it was then. I love it! Especially the adorable owl.

My last post was very detailed with a lot of Copic coloring, ink blending, and layering. It was a lot of fun to create and took a bit of time to complete. This time I was able to create all 3 cards in about that same amount of time. Minimal coloring and layering made these quick and easy, but just as effective. They are bright and fun!

I used some Copic markers to color their scarves, feet, and cheeks. I added a bit of detail with a white gel pen. I used the 4 Bar Stitched Rectangle die on the stamped panels. I cut the card bases down to size as well.

This fox is going to my nephew who has a December birthday. I adhered the extra owl inside the card with the little "hi" word bubble from the Friends For All Seasons: Fall stamp set.

I just love these! I hope you do too. Thanks so much for stopping by today!


  1. I do love them, Kara! Always fresh, super CAS, and delightful! They are all cute, but my favorite critter is that little penguin - who skates about as well as I do!

  2. They’re all very cute! And what a great idea to do minimal coloring, that works great to make multiples for the holidays. Thanks for the inspiration!
