Quick and Easy Christmas Card | Christmas Card Series #6

Hey everyone!


The last 12 days before Christmas are upon us so I thought I would make a more simple card using the Simon Says Stamp December Card Kit, Christmas Cheer.

For this one I was inspired by Crystal's card on the inspiration sheet that we all received with our kits. I linked to her channel in the description on my video.



Watch the video here.







So it all started with the smooshing technique of a couple Distress Oxide inks. This is such a fun technique and using it with Oxides is great because it allows you to layer color very well. Since these inks have pigment ink in.





Next I colored the cute little tree from the Simon Says Stamp Christmas Cheer stamp set. I used copics for this. 



Green-

YG67, G14, YG03


Yellow

Y26, Y15, Y02


Brown-

E59, E35, E18


Gray-

W3, W1


Once the tree was done I used gold embossing powder on the center of the star and the light strings using a Versamark pen to draw over those lines. Then heat set it. For the sentiment I stamped them on some Neenah cardstock then hand cut them into rectangle and attached them to a scrap piece of Audrey Blue cardstock. I then used my scissors again and left just a hint of the blue around each sentiment rectangle. 





I thought this card needed some more blue so I stamped a couple of the fantastic snowflake stamps from the Christmas Cheer stamp set with Distress Oxide Peacock Feathers. It overlapped the red and yellow of the smooshed background well. 



Then  I added some Nuvo Drops to create color on the lights of the trees. 






This card has been entered into the following challenges.

I Need Space | Kindred Stamps December 2018 Release Blog Hop

Hey guys! Welcome back. I'm so excited to share with you the project I made for the Kindred Stamps December 2018 release. I'm using the fabulous I Need Space stamp set. I started off making one card but ended up with 6 of them!



Watch the video here.




Galaxies are just so fun to make and there are so many different ways to create them. In the video I show you how I use a watercolor set to make 6 backgrounds. I use a combination of different colors, black watercolor paint, Distress Oxide Black Soot and Distress Black Soot Ink. I especially like the colored splatters that I created on this project.





















I was going for a more Valentine's theme for most of these 
cards that I created. Though this set has a great birthday sentiment and most of the other sentiments are universal for a lot of different occasions.




I hope you all have been enjoying the Blog hop! If you've been enjoying what I've been creating connect with me more on my other social media accounts.
