Christmas (Card) Time

December 20th, 2014 by craftdoc

I made up the Watercolor Winter kit (a Year-end Closeout at my SHOP) for my Christmas cards to send out this year.  It was a bit fussy with all the little letters, but fun to assemble.  One of the girls at the Watercolor and Wine class made swirls instead of stripes for one of the cards, so I gave that a try.

Today’s Tips:

-really dilute the ink with water as you watercolor.  Start on one edge and work up to give an ombre effect.

-Sponge some Early Espresso or Chocolate Chip ink on the sled to give it a more rustic look.

-I like to use glue dots to attach the sequins.  Liquid glue works too, but you get sticky fingers.

Here are my last samples using the All is Calm Washi Tape.  I just love the colors of this collection as well as the matching  Designer Series Paper.  It’s hard to believe that these products are only available for a couple more weeks at my SHOP.

Stamp sets used are Gorgeous Grunge, Many Merry Stars (available while supplies last) and Festival of Trees.

Here’s a couple of fun Christmas cards I made with the Festival of Trees stamp set and matching Tree punch.  I added some All is Calm Washi Tape.  What a pretty color combo – Smoky Slate, Lost Lagoon, Pear Pizzazz, Soft Sky.

Today’s Tip:

-Add a bit of silver embossing and silver Glimmer Paper for some sparkle.

-The Gorgeous Grunge stamp set adds a nice background to the second card.

All products can be purchased at my website shop – don’t forget to check out new arrivals, Paper Pumpkin Gift subscriptions (kits) and Year-end Closeouts.

Christmas (Card) Time

December 9th, 2014 by craftdoc

Dianne, one of my Stampin’ Up! downline, organized a snail mail Christmas swap.  Here is the card that I made.  I was happy to only need one because it took a lot of coloring and my last little bit of Irridescent Ice Embossing Powder!  I used the Gentle Peace stamp set (available only online) and the Filigree Frame Embossing Folder (only available for a few more weeks).

Today’s Tips:

-Stampin’ Blendabilities are a must to get the depth and shading.

-Dab the entire panel with a Versamark pad before embossing for a stained glass look.

-Check out the Weekly Deals, New Arrivals and Year-End Closeouts at my website shop.
