Gnome – Merry Christmas!


It’s Wednesday, and this week I’m featuring a Christmas card I made using the image Flying Gnome – TLF008 and sentiment Sm Christmas Script – F051 from (High Hopes Rubber Stamps).  I just love colouring these adorable little gnomes. Also, it’s always good to make Christmas cards a little at a time throughout the year so that you are not rushing to get them all done in December. LOL! Have you started making your Christmas cards yet this year?

To create the card this week, I first used the die cut from Creative Expressions by Sue Wilson – Festive Collection – Pointsettia Mini Background – CED3049 to cut some Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my Cuttlebug. I stamped the main image and then coloured it with Copic Markers. I started off doing the sky first as I didn’t want any of the Reds smearing into it. (This happens sometimes if you are not careful.) Once the image was all coloured in, I used Sakura Glaze – Black and Gelly Roll Sakura #8 Pen to increase the intensity of the eye on the bird. I outlined the entire image with Pigma Micron 03 black marker to make it stand out more against the sky. Lastly, I used a mixture of Gelly Roll Sakura #8 Pen and Gelly Roll Sakura #10 Pen to create the snow and stars in the sky.

For the base of the card, I began with a standard white card base of 4.25″ x 5.5″. I cut another piece of white cardstock the same size and applied the red shimmer topping on it using Crafts – Sparkling Stickers – 02-3068629. I used the same die cut listed above to cut out the intricate design using my Cuttlebug and the gold paper from Hot Buy Craft Smart – Holiday Glitz Glitter Paper. I had put the gold paper through my Xyron Creative Station before I die cut it. This made it easier to just peel and stick onto the base.

For the sentiment, I die cut some spare red cardstock using Craftin Desert Diva’s – Flag Banner Dies. Using my MISTI and VersaMark ink, I stamped the sentiment onto the die cut and embossed it using Ranger Super Fine Gold Embossing powder. This was heated with my Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. The image and the sentiment were both popped up with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to complete the card.

Winter Polar Bear


Hi There,

Thought I’d share another Christmas card that I just finished for this year. Only about 45 more to go!!!!

PolarBear-TCBJ

To make this card I used the .svg cut from Too Cute By Jessica called Winter Polar Bear – Designer Jessica Owens 2015 and cut it out on my Cricut Explore after I finished uploading the image in Cricut Design Space. Used Sharpie Water Based Paint – White – Extra Fine Point, General’s Charcoal white for the eyes and Pigma Micron 03 black marker for the eyelashes.

Added some Clear – Wink of Stella on the red portion of the candy cane and  Wink of Stella – Glitter White on the white pieces.

Ranger Stickles Yellow Glitter Glue for the centre of the pointsettia.

Here is a close-up of the bear.

All patterened papers are from Pebbles – Home for Christmas paper pad – 36 papers- 6 x 6 in (15.2 x 15.2 cm).

Inked around the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Pine Needles and Memento Dew Drop – Lady Bug ink.

Sentiment is from Popcorn the Bear – Christmas Collection. Also used Craftin Desert Diva’s – Flag Banner Dies. Stamped sentiment with Versamark and then used Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail.

My Creative Time – Scalloped Stitched Oval Dies were used for framing the bear.

Christmas – Owl-idays


 

Back to share another Christmas card I made using Craftin Desert Diva’s Owl-idays stamps, Stitched in Circle Dies and Stampin Up – Woodland Embossing Folder.

I love how this turned out. I hope you do too!!!

 

Happy Owl-idays

To colour the tree bark I used my black copic pen 100 and then outlined the trees with Pigma Micron 03 black marker.

In between the trees used Tim Holtz “Broken China” and “Tumbled Glass” for the sky. The sky is actually darker than it shows in the photo.

Used Ceramcoat – White Acrylic paint and a little bit of water and paint brush to create the snow effect.

Stamped owls with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. All of the owls bodies were coloured with Copics E33, E35 and E37. Feet, Y02 and beak YR16 and YR04. Eyes, Y02, E33 and Gelly Roll Sakura #8 Pen . The belly on the one was coloured with E31.

The hats and Santa jacket were coloured with Copics R27 and R29.

Santa hat and scarf on the lower branch were coloured with Copic markers BG05, B24,and R27. Used Martha Stuart Holidays Blue Topaz Tinsel Glitter on hat as well.

Used Liquid Applique 322 Col#0 White and my heat gun to create the fluff on Santa outfit and hat.

Sentiment was stamped with Versamark and then Stampin Up White Super Fine Embossing Powder.

Cut the frame for the wreath out 3 times and layered it, moving it slightly each time to create the affect.

Used “Crafts” red pearls to add little holly berries to the wreath. Then finished it off with a little red bow.

Hope you like it!
