Funky Fossil July/August Pre-Release Peeks - Introducing Christmas Characters

If you're into cute Christmas stamps then today's set will be right up your street!

This set has been designed by Funky Fossil DT member Donna Gray and includes the most adorable images that are her signature style.

So I was thinking of a little window on the world with the tree indoors looking out at the cutest ever snowman. the sentiment is from a set that will be featured on Friday.

Stamps: Funky Fossil, Christmas Characters & Festive Phrases
Stencil: Funky Fossil, In The Clouds
Inks: Memento, tuxedo black, London fog
Die: Lawn Fawn, foursquare backdrop portrait
Pens: Copic G17, B04, R29, C1, C3

My next card pairs up the long nosed reindeer with the Snow Globe stencil. This reindeer reminds me so much of my oldest son's greyhound and I know I'll be using it on his Christmas card this year.

Stamps: Funky Fossil, Christmas Characters
Stencil: Funky Fossil, Snow Globe
Inks: Memento, espresso
Pens: Copic, RV04, W0, W3, W5

And since the Snow Globe stencil was out on my desk I quickly inked up another background and added the polar bear this time.

Stamps: Funky Fossil, Christmas Characters
Stencils: Funky Fossil, Snow Globe & Snow Storm
Inks: Memento, tuxedo black & elderberry
Pen: Copic, C5

My final share today is a little gift box. I used the Snow Storm stencil to create a background, shifting it slightly to add some heat embossed sparkle on top.

I stamped, coloured and hand cut the fairy and bird with letter twice and used foam pads to adhere them to the box.

Stamps: Funky Fossil, Christmas Characters
Stencil: Funky Fossil, Snow Storm
Inks: Ranger distress, mermaid lagoon; Versamark clear + WOW! sparkling snow embossing powder
Pens: Copic, E50, RV09, B04, BG34

Still two more days of introductions before they will all be available to buy on Saturday 1st August. Tomorrow's stamps are back to a more traditional theme - hope to see you then!

Thanks for looking. Stay safe and keep crafting!
