Hello! Today I am sharing a winter / holiday card with a digital stamp image and watercolors.
The stamp is “Christmas Cheer” by Graciellie Design and I printed it on watercolor paper. The sentiment is by Tonic Studios, stamped on vellum and heat embossed in gold.
I used Altenew watercolors for the whole image. Then added pearl pigment powder in Silky Gold mixed with a drop of water (ot the saucer) and sealed it with Nuvo Crystal Glaze. I also added Nuvo Glimmer Paste in Moonstone to the Poinsettia.
Hi! Today I’m sharing this shadow box card. I have always wanted to make one 🙂 After many tries, I finally got it so that the size is A6 (European) when flat, which means that it perfectly fits in a standard envelope. I’ll post a detailed tutorial once I have a little bit more free time 🙂
I used “Seasonal Scenes” and “Naughty Or Mice?” stamp sets by Clearly Besotted to create the little scene inside my shadow box. I colored the images with Copic markers and also used stencil and distress inks to create wallpapers and carpet inside the home. For the outside I used distress inks and a brick stamp from one of my Tonic Craft kits, so that the shadow box looks like a house.
The sentiment is from “Cosy Christmas” stamp set (again by Clearly Besotted) and the die cuts were just some leftovers from last year’s Christmas projects (from Tonic Craft kits).
Hi! It’s time for our Collected Crafty Collabs hop for the month of October and it’s also time to dig through my stash and find something I haven’t used for a while 🙂
Theme for this month is Thankful and/or Foil/Shiny element.
For my card I chose to use a stamp set from Wplus9 called “Beautiful Bouquets: Dahlias” that I used probably just once … two years ago (or a bit more?). I stamped and heat embossed the image in Brass embossing powder by WOW! on Bristol smooth paper and I used my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers to color. This time I went with a blender pen, just because I rarely use it. The sentiment is from an older Tonic Craft kit and I heat embossed it using the same Brass embossing powder.
For the shiny element on my card I used gold paper from my stash (I bought tons of it long ago but because it’s so thin, I don’t really use it) and also shiny sequins by Tonic Studios.
Hi! It’s a new month and we are having our new challenge at Christmas Craft Creations. I’m jumping in with the launch team but I’ll have one more card to share when my team’s turn is. Christmas is coming closer so I really need to focus more on making those projects 🙂
October’s theme is Christmas Music so when I saw the digital stamp Angel Tart at 7 Kids Craft Store I thought she looks like singing and will be perfect. I colored her with Copic markers but I don’t have a video showing the process. However, I have a video on how I made the rest of the card.
I used Picture It Christmas background stamp by Clearly Besotted and also stamped twice a present from another stamp set. I made an attempt at creating Northern Lights with a twist. Because I don’t have wide variety of blue markers, I tried using distress ink on top and yey, it worked 🙂 I ink blended light blue for snowy hills and colored the rest of the images with my Copics. I used white gloss spray for falling snow and I also added few music notes around the angel. I thought that ‘We wish you a Merry Christmas’ is just the perfect sentiment for this card. Lastly I added some more snow with white gel pen and Nuvo Crystal glaze on the ornaments and bows.

Please, check the project inspiration from the rest of the team. Challenge closes November 10th and we have aprize 🙂 I hope you will get inspired to play along with us!
Hi, friends! Remeber my Summer penguin card? I decided to continue the story and create an Autumn scene card for our Team Tiny hop for the month of October. And because the theme is Birthday, I made an outdoor Birthday party 🙂 Same as my previous penguin card, I used the All Four Seasons stamp set along with Scene It More and Scene It Seasons all by Clearly Bessoted… yes, I think I have an obsession with this stamp company 🙂 I added some more images from few more stamp sets to make the party more fun. I used mainly Nuvo markers and few Copics as well.
This month’s theme is Shaped Card so I decided to make a round one. For my cardbase I simply cut out two circles, scored one at like 1 inch and adhered them together only on that part. I used a Marianne Design’s doily die and Nellie’s Choice Conifer branches dies. The poinsettia and the leaves are from Simpn Says Stamp’s The Magic Of Christmas set and I colored them with my Copic markers (kind of a no-line coloring).
More details in my video:
Please, check the projects from the rest of the team. I hope you will get inspired to play along with us!
This month’s theme is Animals and I chose the cutest reindeer for my card (I love his smiley face) 😀 I did a little bit of stamping, Copic coloring, a little bit of masking, ink blending and heat embossing.
You can check my process video:
