DIY HOLIDAY CARD WITH COPICS AND WATERCOLORS


I think I  am very much obsessed with these row of houses! I just love drawing these again and again. You can check my previous posts HERE and HERE. 


First, I drew all the houses with pencil and went over it with Black Permanent Marker and I erased all the lines with an eraser.


Then I colored in the houses with W5, R24 and R29 Copic Markers. Next I fussy cut it and kept it aside!


I took another panel slightly smaller than the main card base and applied a wash of blue water color from Koi Water Colors. Once it's dry, I adhered the house panel over it.


Next I added splashes of white paint from the same Koi water colors to resemble the snow. 


Next I handwritten the sentiment and applied Star Dust Stickles for some extra interest.



I hope you like my card and I hope you enjoyed watching the video. Thank you so much for visiting. Take care and I will see you next time! :)

BOLD ONE LAYER CARD | CATHERINE POOLER DESIGNS


This color combo is very new to me and I think I didn't use these colors on my card before, I guess so!! This card was inspired by one of the cards I made a while ago. You can check that card HERE. All the products I used to make this are from Catherine Pooler Designs Stamp of Approval Naturally Inspired Collection.

CARD PROJECT DETAILS

I started by inking up and stamping the solid feather stamp from Birds of a Feather Stamp Set  with Tiki Torch, All That Jazz and Tutti Frutti inks by Catherine Pooler Designs.


These are such gorgeous colors and I think these would be great for both boys and girls. 


Then I inked up the bold BEST sentiment from Simply the Best stamp set in Midnignt ink and stamped over the previously stamped image followed by the Friend stamp. I love that crisp, clear and clean impression which always comes with Catherine Pooler inks when stamped!


I also added splashes of black paint to enhance the beauty of the design. I hope you like it and I also made a video for you, enjoy! :D

CHRISTMAS THEMED MILK CARTON FAVOUR BOXES | SIZZIX LIFESTYLE


Hello everyone! I hope you are having a wonderful time! I made these Milk Carton Favour Boxes for my neighbor's kids. These are just for sample, may be I'll make more in the next coming days!!! 


I used a few pattern papers from Prima and Mudra. I die-cut the leaves out of white card stock and colored it with Camlin Real Brush Markers!


I die-cut a few smaller tags from out of white and kraft card stocks. The sentiment was handwritten. I also added a bow with white twine and adhered the whole part to the small clothes pin.


I just love how these turned out. They are so so cute! :)

CUTE HOLIDAY CARDS | A MUSE STUDIO


Recently I've shared these pencil colored images on my Instagram feed. They were just lying on my desk. Last night I fussy cut them and placed them in my Trinket Box. In the morning I made two cards with these images. I used Faber-Castell color pencils to color my images.


These cute stamps are from A Muse Studio called Forest Friends. I used one of the Sizzix Rectangular framelit dies to die-cut my smaller panel. I ink blended Peacock Feathers Distress Ink over that die-cut panel and adhered all the cuties with Tacky Glue. Finally splashed snow with Picket Fence Distress Paint and finished the card by stamping the sentiment from the same stamp set.


This is almost a single layer card!? I die-cut the grass border with Grass die by A Muse Studio and adhered onto my card front along with the images. Finally finished the card by stamping the sentiment from Forest Friends.


I didn't have any Christmas or holiday related stamps and dies from Hero Arts and SSS. I hope you like these cards. I'm entering these cards for A Blog Named Hero Challenge: Winter Holiday with Simon Says Stamp. Thank you :)

PROJECT DETAILS

I started by cutting down the card board pieces and adhered the pattern paper from Papericious. Next I applied a coat of Egyptian Gold Pigment Paint to the edges and rubbed randomly over it.


I adhered a strip as shown above for the easy opening and closing mechanism. It wasn't that good but the over all look of the box is cool.


I die-cut the leaves from Holiday Greens, Garden Greens and Meadow Leaves out of a few scrap papers and applied a coat of gold pigment paint. I adhered all the leaves forming a wreath.


I also die-cut Angel #2 from Papericious, applied Stardust Glitter to it's wings and wrapped golden time to it's body.


I adhered the wreath over the box and followed by Angel. I foam mounted the Angel for some dimension.


Finally I embellished the Angel with a few golden gems. I hope you like it :)
