A Winter Birthday Card

Hello my crafty friends, I am back with a winter birthday card this week.  As you can see, I have toned down my colours a lot.  I am liking this clean and eye soothing colours scheme :)

The image is from Holiday Owl from Your Next Stamp.  It was stamped on a neenah solar white card stock using Memento black ink.  The image was then coloured using Copic Sketch Markers.  

The sentiment is from Waddle - Snow Fun from Your Next Stamp.  Since I don't want any black dots on the card, the sentiment was first stamped with black ink and then heat embossed using clear embossing powder.  

I also used Clear Wink of Stella on the owl image and a white gel pen to add the snow on the image and the sentiment.

Although I said I have toned down my colour choices, as you can see at the bottom of this post, I am still using a lots of Copic Markers!

A Flowery Card for a Friend

Hello my crafty friends.  I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and a fantastic New Year :)

Today I am back with a flowery card.  I stamped MFT's flower stamps on a piece of watercolour card stock using Ranger's Archival black ink.  The flowers pattern were watercolored on the negative space with green and aqua, and orange and yellow for the centre of the flowers.  

On a white card stock, I die cut the "windows" using MFT's die.  I then embossed it with We R Memory Keepers' embossing folder.  I also splashed the green and the aqua colours I used for the flower pattern on the embossed white card panel.  

The sentiment and the black ink are from Hero Arts.  However, the stamp set for the sentiment is already retired but I was able to find it on amazon.com.  I also used the Misti to help stamping on an embossed surface.  I finished off the card by adhering the embossed panel to the flower pattern pattern panel using foam adhesive.  The whole thing was then adhered to the card base.

More Christmas Cards

Hello my crafty friends, I have more christmas cards to share with you guys today.  I was lucky to have two full days to make more christmas cards for my daughter's teachers.  Since I can't make them all the same, I decided to go with a theme, this set I use sky blue and white colour.



For this christmas elf card, I used luminance 6901 coloured pencil to colour the elf from Gerda Steiner Designs.  A silver gel pen and a sparkle blue gel pen to colour and doodle on the negative space of the presents die.  I also decided instead of having the sentiment at the front, I have it inside the card!



I have a lot of fun making these two cards.  Since the negative of this die is as gorgeous as it positive.  I used both and made two cards!   The background of the die cuts are created using a retired stamp set from Simon Says Stamp.  I have another card made just using that stamp set and the details are at the bottom of this post.




I used watercolour for this card.  This is my first time using Daniel Smith for watercoloring and I had a blast!


I also have another christmas card using stamps from a retired stamp set from Simon Says Stamp.   The pine branch in this stamp set is super fine and it looks gorgeous with silver pearl embossing powder.  I also used this image as the background of the other christmas card above.  The sentiment is from the same stamp set.  I stamped it with Ocean Waves ink and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder.   Since ink colours deepened after heat embossing, I used a darker tone blue card stock to match the sentiment colour.


Thank you for stopping by, I hope you have a wonderfully creative day!  Products I used are listed below.
