Happy Birthday!

I have been addicted to no line colouring using colour pencils for past week or so. Faber Castell polychromos is my favourite. I had the 36 pencils sets. I love the pencils so much that I bought the 120 pencils tin set recently. My own Christmas present I guess ๐Ÿ™‚ But when the pencils arrived, I didn’t wait for Christmas. I opened it and used it straightaway to make this card.

This card uses Simon Says Stamp’s Bone-a-fide Birthday stamp set from their latest You are Loved release. Here is the card for you.

I used the Ink On 3 Fadeout ink to stamp the image on Toner Gray paper and coloured using Faber Castell polychromos. Took me almost a day to colour with numerous interruption. I stamped the sentiment vertically using Versafine Onyx black ink. I also sponged white pigment ink on the edges of the panel before adhering on the white card base. This is a one layer card. Strange for me that I added no embellishments. Here are couple of closeups of the card.

All the supplies used to make this card are listed below.

That is it for today. Have a lovely weekend and Merry Christmas if I don’t see you before Tuesday.

No Line Pencils Colouring – A set of Christmas cards

These maybe my last set of Christmas cards I will be sharing with you all this year. Compared to last year, I made heaps and heaps of cards this year. Very happy with all of them and I shared them all although I don’t celebrate Christmas. These ones are using the new release Snowy Holiday stamp set and dies as well as the In a Word: Grand Merry stamp set from Winnie & Walter.

Faber Castell Polychromos pencils were sitting on my desk after I had used them for my last project. So I decided to try more of no line colouring on those adorable images from Snowy Holiday stamp set. I used Ink on 3 stamp to stamp the images on Neenah Solar White cardstock and coloured my heart away. Then I die cut the images using the coordinating cutaway to be used as focal images on my cards. The sentiment is from In a Word Grand Merry stamp set which I gold heat embossed for all the three cards. I kept the rest of the cards simple so the focus is on the no line coloured images.

Here are all the three cards with closeups.

I am very happy with my no line colouring on these images. The reindeer and the santa sack did scare me a bit because of its large empty space. I am pretty happy how they turned out towards the end. I currently have the 36 pencil set from the Polychromos. After finishing colouring these, I wanted more colours and so ordered the 120 pencil tin. My own Christmas present. Lol! Cannot wait to colour more with them ๐Ÿ™‚

All the supplies I used to make these cards are listed below.

Have a wonderful week!

Winnie & Walter’s Rerun Feature!

A quick post today sharing Winnie & Walter’s rerun project for December.

Each month Winnie & Walter runs a Rerun Feature where an older stamp set is showcased by the designers. This stamp set is on sale for the entire month and there is also a challenge and giveaway. All details about the challenge are at Winnie & Walter’s Blog. Make sure you head over there for design team inspirations and details on the challenge.

This month’s featured stamp set is Stampets: Penguins stamp set.

I love penguins. This set is adorable especially the accessories for the penguins. I decided to make tags using this set. I used the new Essentials: Tilda Cutaway die set. I used the tag from this die set to make a set of three tags.

ย 

I stamped the scarf and mittens first, then masked them and stamped the penguin. Removed the mask and repeated it twice more to make a set of three penguins with scarf and mittens as one piece of image. Then I coloured them using copic markers. Using the scissors I fuzzy cut the penguins out.ย 

To make the tags, I die cut three tags using the tag from Tilda Cutaway and some Christmas pattern paper from my stash. Three more using white cardstock. I used the V shaped die from Tilda Cutaway on one of the white tags to get banner end to it. Similarly, I used W&W Georgette Border Cutaway and the Zigzag die from Essentials Katherine Cutaway to die cut the other two white tags.ย  I also die cut just the top part of the tag using red glitter cardstock. I adhered this to the white tags then layered the white tags on the pattern paper tags and added bakers twine in red and white to secure the tags in place.

The penguins were adhered to the tags using foam adhesives. The sentiment from the stamp set is simply stamped on white cardstock, trimmed into a strip and adhered on the bottom of the penguin image using foam adhesives.

I added white blizzard Nuvo drops to the scarf and mittens and glossy accents to the eyes. Here are the photos of the tags individually.
