Rudolph Christmas Card ~ Miss Kate Cuttables SVG Files ~ Cricut

Hey everyone,

It seems like it’s been forever and a day since I’ve used my Cricut to make a card and I thought I’d give it a try since I’ve been collecting some really adorable SVG files for Christmas.

Cricut die cuts – Reindeer and presents SVG files from Miss Kate Cuttables - Christmas handmade card.

To create this card, I used several patterned papers, all in the traditional red and green Christmas colors and two SVG cut files. The reindeer and the stacks of Christmas presents are both from Miss Kate Cuttables.

Cricut die cuts – Reindeer and presents SVG files from Miss Kate Cuttables - Christmas handmade card.

After cutting all of the pieces, I adhered all of the layers together and added some red glitter Stickles for Rudolph’s nose and gold glitter Stickles for the bell, this is a Christmas card after all and there should be glitter.
To complete this card, I layered the patterned paper which I cut using some of my favorite dies and added my focal point images using foam tape for dimension. And that will complete another Christmas card!
This card was inspired by Miss Kate’s December Challenge and Cardz TV Anything Goes Challenge!

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

My Favorite Things Polar Bear Pals ~ Copic Colored ~ Distress Oxides Background ~ Christmas Card

Hey everyone,

This weeks’ card is inspired by MFT’s Color Challenge # 82, and the card I made using MFT’s Polar Bear Pals. Personally, I love polar bears and I think they are one of the most majestic wild animals on this earth.

My Favorite Things Polar Bear Pals stamp set colored with Copic Markers and Distress Oxides ink backgrounds handmade Christmas card.

I started by ink blending a piece of watercolor paper using Distress Oxides Ink in Salty Ocean to create the background and die cut the panel using MFT’s Stitched Rectangle Stax’s.
The various polar bear images were stamped onto a piece of Neenah Solar White 80 lb. cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic markers. I am still learning to pair my combinations and blending but I think these images did not turn out too bad.

My Favorite Things Polar Bear Pals stamp set colored with Copic Markers and Distress Oxides ink backgrounds handmade Christmas card.

 

Working on the snow banks, I used a piece of white glittered cardstock and die cut the banks using MFT’s Stitched Basic Edges 2. I adhered those pieces to the card base and added my images with some foam tape for dimension.

My Favorite Things Polar Bear Pals stamp set colored with Copic Markers and Distress Oxides ink backgrounds handmade Christmas card.

All there was left to do to complete this card was stamp the sentiment and add some falling snow using 3D Puffy paint. In hindsight, I would have chosen a different sentiment and maybe even heat embossed it with white embossing powder. And my falling white snow has now taken on a bluish tint from the background. And lastly, I will be very happy to finish using up the glitter paper, as it flakes terribly. Although I am happy with the design of my card, some components not so much and will note to self for future!

The inspiration for this card is MFT’s Color Challenge # 82

That’s it for me for now, as always, thanks for stopping by, until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!

Your Next Stamp Holiday Buddies ~ Copic Colored ~ Christmas Card

Hey everyone,

I still have so many Christmas cards to make and so little time left before I have to send them out. This week I made another Christmas card using very traditional Christmas colors to play along with YNS Sketch and Color challenge # 78.  

Your Next Stamp Holiday Buddies colored with Copic Markers and Christmas patterned paper background handmade Christmas card.

I chose to create a card based on the sketch this week and use some very Christmas-y patterned papers for the card base, which I layered according to the sketch. For the focal layer, I used a stitched oval die to cut a piece of white cardstock and add my components on top.

The image of the dog is from Your Next Stamps’ Holiday buddies, at least I think it’s a dog but it could be a sheep, although he is one funky colored sheep if he is a sheep. The layer of trees is cut using Your Next Stamps’ Evergreen tree border die and sparkle green cardstock.

I colored the “dog” using Copic Markers with the following color combinations:

Bird: W5, W7, YR12 and YR15
Bird’s hat: YG03, YG05, R29 and R39
Dog: E11, E13 and E25
   belly: 0, C1
Dog’s hat: R29, R39, 0 and C1

Your Next Stamp Holiday Buddies colored with Copic Markers and Christmas patterned paper background handmade Christmas card.

 

I adhered all of the components to an A2 sized card base and added my sentiment from the stamp set using a tinsel embossing powder in red. And that will complete another Christmas card!!! YAY!!!

With this card, I am also participating in the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, Anything goes!

 

 

And the Your Next Stamp Sketch and Color Challenge # 78

Newton’s Nook Designs Christmas Delivery ~ Copic Markers ~ Distress Ink Background ~ Christmas Card

Hey everyone,

I have been falling a little bit behind my Christmas card making since I had a week off of work (preschool teacher) and my kiddos were home for the Thanksgiving break. But I was able to make one adorable card using a Newton’s Nook Designs’ stamp inspired by the Inky Paws challenge #60

Newton’s Nook Designs Christmas Delivery stamp set colored with Copic Markers and Distress ink backgrounds handmade Christmas card.

First, I stamped all of the images onto a piece of Neenah Solar white 80 lb. cardstock using Memento Tuxedo black dye ink. Next, I used my ScanNCut 2 to cut out all of the images. I am still learning how to properly calibrate my machine so that it cuts an either even white border around the image or right on the stamped line of the image. And last, I used my Copic Markers to color all of the images with the following combinations:

Sled: Y35, Y38 and E55 and E44, E47, and E79
Newton (Cat): C3, C5 and R20
Dog: 0, C1, C3
Christmas Hat: 0, C1, R29 and R59
Presents: R29 and R39, YG13 and YG6, B2 and B5
Trees: G05 and G28

Newton’s Nook Designs Christmas Delivery stamp set colored with Copic Markers and Distress ink backgrounds handmade Christmas card.

To create the background, I used a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock and did some ink blending using Distress inks in chipped sapphire and peacock feathers, which are my favorite color combination to create a nighttime sky. Using MFT’s Snowfall stencil and Nuvo glimmer paste, I added some glittered snow to mimic the falling snow on the background panel.
To complete this card, I added the black frame around the edge of the card, the sentiment embossed with a silver embossing powder and a silver bottom layer for a little sparkle. As a final touch I took a Spectrum Noir Sparkle Glitter brush pen and bedazzled all of the components of my card. It’s a Christmas card and it HAS to sparkle. And that will complete another Christmas card for this year, thanks for stopping by, until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!

Your Next Stamp Santa’s Helper ~ Zig Clean Color Real Brush ~ Christmas card

Hey everyone,

Moving right along on making Christmas cards, I made this one inspired by YNS Sketch and Color Challenge #77 using Santa’s Helpers stamp set from Your Next Stamp.

Your Next Stamp Santa’s Helpers stamp set colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and patterned papers handmade Christmas card.

I wanted to use my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers for this card so I began by stamping all of the images onto a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock with Versafine Onyx black ink. I also embossed the images using black embossing powder, so that I can have a nice dark outline.
Using my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers, I used the following color combinations:

Chimney: 024 Wine Red and 260 Deep Red for shadows
Santa suit: 024 Wine Red and 260 Deep Red for shadows
Santa boots and belt: 095 Dark Gray and 010 Black for shadows
Santa hats: 024 Wine Red and 260 Deep Red for shadows
Penguins: 095 Dark Gray and 010 Black for shadows
Penguins beaks and feet: 070 Orange
Penguin bellies: 091 Light Gray
Snow: 091 Light Gray and 099  Cool Gray 1

Your Next Stamp Santa’s Helpers stamp set colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and patterned papers handmade Christmas card.

To put this card together, I fussy cut the images out and adhered them onto an A2 sized card base using the sketch template and patterned paper from Recollections called Christmas Noel paper pad. I generally leave my cards blank on the inside, however, the sentiment in the stamp set was just begging to be added and since I had an extra penguin image I added the little guy inside to complete my card.

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!
