010421 CKC January Forgery on the Fourth


 Our January inspiration kit:

Not Just For Boys Flurries Deluxe Theme Kit

I decided to forge the Carta Bella- Let it Snow "Swirling Snowflakes" paper

and the “Hot Cocoa Mug” cardstock cut designed by Jillibean Soup.

I used Ranger Archival black ink to stamp snowflake images from 2008 Inkadinkado "Winter Trails" and "Cool Christmas" stamp sets, plus a lone snowflake from Making Memories 2010 Noel stamp set to fill in where needed. The background paper is the Paper Studio's 2008 Wood Fence. Easy-peasy, and I sure got in a lot of OLD stash-busting, lol!

 The die cut mug was modeled after one of my favorite holiday mugs.

I turned the photo black & white and printed it in Draft mode set to very light saturation to save ink. I ditched the reindeer (that was too fussy to cut, even for me!) and add some striped bands and some steamy heat rising from the cup. A wood veneer snowflake ups the cuteness factor to finish it off.

I hope we inspire you to make some of your favorites from each month's kit! I can't believe I used 2008 elements to produce forgeries from 2020 products! Go for it and show us at the links below.
