Happy Wednesday! I have a few more Lawn Fawn Tag cards to share with you. A wee while ago I shared two in this post is you would like to see them.

This first card has a very traditional Christmas color theme. The stitched details and white embossing are what I love about the card….and the cute penguin of course :)

In this next card, the colors are a little lighter and a more modern take……and the owl is so sweet!

By changing up the paper and the images, you can create completely different looks using the same card recipe! Perfect for the holiday season.

Here is a video showing you how I created them:

Reindeer Flying ~ Stamp and Create

Happy Monday! Hope you had a great week-end and a good start to this week. Last week in November! Let the Holiday Cheer begin!

For my DT make for Stamp and Create this week, I created another tag and this time it features a pretty sweet reindeer!

The image is Reindeer Flying from Wild Rose Studio stamps. He looks so happy and eager to be out flying :) I colored him with copics, masked him and then added the background with Distress Inks. (Shaded Lilac, Tumbled Glass, Dusty Concord and Chipped Sapphire.

The tag was created using a Whiff of Joy tag die. I added some snowflakes and faux stitching using a Sharpie Poster Paint pen. Then I just added some ribbon and twine and my tag was done :)

Whiff of Joy ~ A Christmas Tag

Happy Wednesday my dears! I am here to share another Christmas tag with you :) Probably my favorite way to use stamps and embellies is to create fun tags. They can go onto a card base, decorate a Project Life or December Daily album, or be used to decorate gifts :)

DSC_7968 copy

The image was colored with Copics and then masked so that I could airbrush the background on. I used creams, greens and reds to create this look. Afterwards, to mute the colors a wee bit, I spritzed on some Studio Calico Mr Huey mist in white. I added stickles, Wink of Stella in clear and even added some Liquid  Applique to the marshmallows!

Stamp and Create ~ Christmas Card

Happy Monday morning! Hope your week is off to a great start! I have a ton of things on my to do list today!

I am sharing my latest Christmas creation with you today. As soon as I saw this image, I knew that I would have to have it! I adore the huge bouquet of poinsettias that Tilda is holding. It looks so pretty!

DSC_8226 copy

The image is named Sparkle Poinsettia from Magnolia's Waiting for Christmas collection. I colored her with my usual copics and then added the dots with a Sharpie poster paint pen. Then I went over them with a Wink of Stella Brush pen in gold. It worked really well. I also went over Tilda’s dress with a Wink of Stella brush pen, but this one was clear. I adds just the right amount of sparkle. I darkened up her eyes with a black Wink of Stella pen and added white dots with my Sharpie poster paint pen. You can see it in the next photo. I created a simple 4x6 card using left over paper scraps, some ribbon and to balance out the left side of the card, I used the Cozy Big Snowflake DooHickey.

Winter Wryn Card and Video

Happy Friday! Yesterday I spoke about Winter coming and today, as I type, there are snowflakes fluttering down from the sky :) I have a card and a video to share with you today.

I had a great response with my Halloween Card series and was asked to do something similar with a Christmas theme. I am going to do my best to create a series but I won’t set myself a set number. This first one shares how I create masks for creating backgrounds when using digital images and also shows you the copic coloration. I have added all the numbers used right in the video.

I recently purchased a couple of Tiddly Inks digital images. They are so very sweet. This first one in called Winter Wryn.

DSC_8215 copy

What I really enjoy about digital images is how I can size them perfectly for whatever project I am creating. I knew that I wanted to create a simple card without too much fuss and create a starry background.

DSC_8216 copy

One of the things I really enjoy with digital images is that I can size them perfectly for whatever project I am creating. I knew that I wanted a relatively simply layout with a wonderful starry background behind the image.

Here is the video showing you the coloration with copics as well as the creation of the background. Enjoy :)

Supply list:

Thanks for stopping by and I hope I have inspired you to try out some new techniques with your digital images :)

Winter’s Coming Home….

Happy Thursday! There is a definite iciness to the wind these days and I know that Winter is coming home. It isn’t a bad thing. Living in Canada, I welcome the changing of the seasons and the different rituals associated with beginning and ending of each one. Most of all, with the kids growing up so quickly, I cherish the memories of the passing seasons. So, all this to say that I have an autumn themed card that needs to be shared today (before it is too late).

DSC_8072 copy

A wee bit different from my usual style, but I am very happy with the way this one turned out. I stamped the leaves with Versamark onto water-color paper and heat embossed them using white powder. Then, I pulled out m Twinkling H20s and played with various colors until I was happy with coloring. I added a very simple sentiment and cut it to fit on an A2 card. Done.

 

Whiff of Joy is having a Pre-Christmas sale:
