Simple Whimsical Christmas Card

Hello my crafty friends.  I am busy creating christmas cards these past few days.  Today, I am sharing one of the card I made.  I love whimsical arts and this card is my very first attempt to create something whimsical :) 

The key to this card is Simon Says Stamp's beautiful and whimsical Christmas Tree die.  I used this die and a piece of mediterranean deep green sparkle card stock to die cut the frame of the christmas tree.  After gluing the die cut piece on a piece of pearlescent card stock, I used Copic markers to colour the inside of the tree.  I also used the Y00 to go around the outside of the tree too.

The image penal is popped up using a piece of white craft foam, and was adhered on to a plain mediterranean green card stock.  I also used My Favourite Things stitched border die to decorate the green borders.

The stylish sentiment is from Mama Elephant and was stamped using Hero Arts Black ink.

All products used, except the Mediterranean deep green sparkly card stock I got from Micheal's, are listed below.  Thank you for stopping by and I hope you will have fun creating :)

Merry Christmas and A Bear Hug!

Hello my crafty friends.  I finally got my winter card making goodies in and I used many of them in my first card.  Some of these new goodies aren't brand new designs but they are new to me!

The super cute image from Wplus9 was coloured using Copic markers.  While the "Merry" sentiment is from Mama Elephant's die, the "christmas" sentiment is from Purple Onion Designs.

Since I liked the image to be on the side instead of in the middle for this card, I used a couple little snowflakes from MFT's snowflake dies to decorate the empty space.  

The background was done using a stencil and ink.  That's it, very simple but fun to make :)

Pink Snowy Warmest Wishes Card

Hello my crafty friends.  This week I am sharing my pink snowy card with you guys!

I wanted to make a calm and toned down card for a while.  Today I finally made one I like, LOL!  The colour scheme of this card are soft pink, grey and black, nothing screaming!  

I first stamped the image on a Copic friendly A2 size card stock.  I then work on the background by first masking out the little hill and the girl, then using the blending tool to apply the grey ink on the card.  Once I was happy with the grey sky background, I peeled off the hill side mask and used the blending tool again to apply pink ink to that white space.  The image was coloured using Copic Markers.  The snow was done by using both white pigment ink and pink ink.

The sentiment is heat embossed on a piece of sparkly paper using white embossing power.

A Dreamy Noel Card!

Hello my crafty friends.  I hope you have great weekend.  We have had a lot of snow here  in Calgary Alberta, since last Friday!  It is finally sunny this morning and I am enjoying the sun.

I think I make better card when I am inspired by colours.  Today's card is one of the example.  The card is made mostly by blending ink colours.  I wanted a rainbow colour christmas tree with transparent white "bubbles" or "snow" on it.  I die cut the christmas tree out and used the sponge daubers (cause it is a very small area to blend) to blend the colours.  I did the background exactly the same way but added a layer of white shimmer to lighten the colours so that the colours of the christmas tree stands out more.  Finally I  decided to give the tree a little bit more dimension by die cutting more trees and stacked them and glue them together.  

The christmas tree die is from Hampton Art - 6 pieces die and stamp set from last year.  I am sorry that I can't find a link to this set anymore but I am sure you can use other christmas tree die you have for this card.

The "snowy bubbles" were done using the lots of dots stamp set from Simon Says Stamp and white pigment inks.  The dots on the tree were done using Hero Arts white pigment ink cause the white stands out more, while the dots on the background were done using Tsuineko Brilliance Moonlight White cause it is a very light shade of white.  The "not very rounded" dots on the background is from accident from the white shimmer spritz.  I actually liked the accidents.  It makes the card more interesting :)

Thank you for stopping by.  I hope you have a wonderful day!
