My First Christmas Card!

Hello everyone,

I have my very first Christmas card for 2018 to share on Winnie & Walter Blog and here today. I know it is very early. Last year I put off making  Christmas Cards until last minute and it did not go well. I did not make any other than DT assignments. No Christmas cards were sent out last year. So I decided to start nice and early to make a good collection of cards ready to post when time is ready.

For this card, I used Happy Christmas and Merry & Bright with Evelin T Designs stamp sets. I used the  poinsettia stamp set from Happy Christmas stamp set and stamped around the kraft panel using masking technique. This makes a good border. I trimmed the panel to 4’x5.25’ in size. Then I coloured the poinsettia using copic markers. I used R24, R27, R29, R30, R59 for the flowers and YG21 and YG23 for the leaves.

I then spattered some gold Colour Shine spray and once dry, I sponged the edges with white pigment ink to soften the panel. Using MISTI I stamped the sentiment from Merry & Bright stamp set using black ink. I added some Nuvo white blizzard crystal drop to add some texture to the card.

I adhered this panel to a Kraft card base. I also sponged the card front with white pigment ink on the edges. This card is simple, rich of colours and easy to make. You can stamp a number of panels one day, another day colour them, then stamp… Have a assembly line to make a set of 10 such cards. If you find colouring the poinsettia tedious, then use larger image so you have less images to colour. Hope I have kick started your Christmas card making or at least got you thinking about it 🙂 The supplies I used are listed below.

You’re a Star!

I have a rainbow card to share with your today. Hello everyone!

I wanted a bright colourful celebratory card to give. So I chose Taylored Expressions Cuttng edge – Stars stamp set and Rainbow Bright Pattern Paper pack to make this card.

I stamped the star cluster image repeatedly from top to bottom on a white panel using TE Oreo hybrid ink. Every second image I stamped turning the stamp to 90 degrees just for some variation. Then I coloured them all in rainbow colours using copic markers. Then used white gel pen to add details and highlights. I then trimmed this panel to 3.50″x5.50″ in size. I adhered this panel to an Oreo cardstock trimmed to 3.75″x5.50″ in size so that there are two strips of black cardstock showing on either side of the panel.

On a Sugar Cube card base, I adhered two strips of the rainbow striped pattern paper from Rainbow Brights pattern paper pack. I adhered the stamped panel on top of the card front in the middle so that the stripped pattern paper shows on either side of the stamped panel.

The sentiments are from Te Cutting Edge Stars stamp set which I white heat embossed on strips of Oreo cardstock and adhered on the centre of the panel using foam adhesive. Finally I used some Nuvo white crystal drops to finish off the card.

Life is So Ruff!

Happy Tuesday! Sharing a card using Simon Says Stamp Summer Cuddly Critters stamp set. This set has been sitting on my table for a while now unused. So last night I decided to crack open the set and ink them up. Here is the card I made.

I stamped the images from Summer Cuddly Critters stamp set on Neenah Solar White cardstock using Simon’s Intense Black ink and copic coloured them all. I enjoyed colouring the images. The using the coordinating die, I die cut the images out. Then added some details using Sakura White Gelly Roll pen.

For the background, I used one of my blended backgrounds. If you are following me on Instagram, you know I love my distress inks and every day I do an ink blending background almost everyday. This is one of the background I am using after adding water spatters. The colours used are Salty Ocean, Mermaid Lagoon and Blueprint Sketch. Typical ocean or pool background colours.

I die cut a Neenah Solar white panel using the largest of Simon’s Wonky stitched die and a largest stitched circle die on the centre of the panel. I adhered this panel on top of the background panel using foam adhesive. Then I tucked the dog image a bit inside the circle window and the rest of the images as shown below.

Then I stamped the bubble image on the background using Simon’s intense black ink. The sentiment is white heat embossed on a strip of black cardstock, trimmed and adhered had on the white panel and half on the background panel inside the circle window. I adhered this finished panel on an Island Blue card base.

All supplies used to make this card are listed below.
