Your Next Stamp Huggles Christmas Star ~ Zig Clean Color Real Brush ~ Christmas Card

Hey everyone,

It’s been a hectic two weeks around here, hence the lack of posts and participation in the card challenges that I love so much.
But I’m finally finished with the project that took me away from my craft time and now I can get back in to my happy place to create some cards.
This card was inspired by Your Next Stamps’ Sketch or Color Challenge # 76. This week I choose to do the color challenge with this one layer card.

Your Next Stamp Huggles Christmas Star colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and Distress ink background handmade Christmas card.

I did not intentionally set out to make a one layer card (originally, I wanted to use an evergreen trees die in the background) but the best-laid plans of mice and men often go awry, so they say!
I started by stamping the images onto a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock using Versafine Onyx black ink and masking it using Molotow art masking liquid.
I have to say that I was not a 100% happy with this product when I removed it as it left some of the blue residue onto the image. Perhaps it’s a user error and I will try another time before I make up my mind. 
I wanted to create a wintery scene background and used my favorite distress inks for the night time sky and added a spritz or two of the Shimmer Sparkle spritz for an all over sparkle. I finished the background with splatter of diluted white paint to mimic snow.
I used the Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers to color my images and very little water as I had to cover up some of the blue residue left by the masking pen.

Colors I used:
Bear: 068 Deep Brown, 065 Mid Brown and 072 Beige 
Scarf: 029 Geranium Red and 022 Carmine Red
Gingerbread man: 072 Beige
Shoes/bow 032 Persian Blue 
Hat: 022 Carmine Red 
Star: 051 Lemon Yellow 

Your Next Stamp Huggles Christmas Star colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and Distress ink background handmade Christmas card.

To put this card together, I cut the main panel using a stitched rectangle die and adhered it to a white A2 sized card base.
The sentiment I used is from the same stamp set and I die cut it with a banner die after stamping it with Versafine Onyx black ink. And that will complete this simple yet I think stunning Christmas card!
I followed the Color Challenge on this card and hope that I made a card that inspired you.

As always thanks for stopping by, until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!

Lawn Fawn Christmas inspired card~ Copic colored~Lawn Fawnatics Challenge entry 14

Hey everyone,

I finally made my first Christmas card of the season! Not bad, considering that there is 73 days until Christmas.
This year, I’m starting a little early and I started with a whimsy, cutesy card created by combining three different stamp sets from Lawn Fawn!
This card is also my entry into the Lawn Fawnatics Challenge 14 – Happy Little Critters. Please follow the link for more information.

Lawn Fawn Winter in the Park, Winter Sparrows and Ready, Set, Snow stamp sets colored with Copic Markers and Distress ink backgrounds handmade Christmas card.

I’ve been very intrigued with scene making ever since I saw a couple of other bloggers post their projects and I thought this would be an ideal opportunity to give it a go.
I first stamped all of the images onto a piece of Spectrum Noir Ultra smooth cardstock using Memento Tuxedo dye ink.
Using my Copic Markers, I colored all of the images…..

Birds: E55 and E57
Snowman: BG000, BV0000 and colorless blender
Red caps/shawls: R24 and R27
Green shawls: YG05 and YG07
Carrot Noses/Beaks: YR14 and YR18

Lawn Fawn Winter in the Park, Winter Sparrows and Ready, Set, Snow stamp sets colored with Copic Markers and Distress ink backgrounds handmade Christmas card.

Next, I created the scene for all of the cute images by creating two snow banks using Lawn Fawn’s Stitched Hillside Borders die and some white smooth cardstock.
The sky background was created by ink blending my favorite Distress Inks onto a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock.

After adhering the background pieces to an A2 sized card base, I added the images onto some foam square for dimension and a stitched frame around the edge of the card for a more polished look. And that completes my first Christmas card and entry into the challenge!

Thanks for stopping by, until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!
