Holiday Cards – Day 6

By | Cards | No Comments

Hi All,

I’m back with another holiday card to share with you. Today’s holiday card was rather simple to make but did take quite a bit of time in terms of coloring. I wanted to spend some time practicing my blending technique with colored pencil and decided to use that as my main medium today.

After coloring the entire image, I used a white pencil to go around the entire outline of the image. I think that really finishes off the coloring and makes the image pop off the page. I also love the look of colored pencil on kraft paper. It looks much more refined this way than simply having it on white.

To finish off the card I used a vellum strip with a holiday sentiment. I wanted to use vellum so that I wouldn’t have to really cover up any of my images. I love the way it still peeks through the sentiment and can be seen.

Here’s a look at how it all came together.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I’ll see you again real soon with another holiday card!

Holiday Cards – Day 5

By | Cards | No Comments

Hi All,

I’m back with another holiday project to share with you. Today I switched things up just a little bit and decided to create a trio of embossed and stitched tags for my holiday gifts this season. I love using tags and ribbon to tie off my gifts. This time around I gave it a twist by using some of my washi tapes in lieu of ribbon and added a stitched tag to the gift instead.

I think this is a fun and creative way to label gifts for under the tree and really just uses supplies many crafters and households have on hand. It seems washi is something many people have now as a staple to their office supplies.

Here’s a quick look at how it all came together.

Thanks so much for following along with the series, and I’ll see you again real soon with another holiday project for this 2017 season!

Holiday Cards – Day 4

Hello All,

Welcome back to another day of Holiday cards. I hope you’re enjoying following along with all the little projects I’ve been making.

One of my favorite things to do when designing cards are to create a simple layout that can easily be duplicated. Today’s cards are a prime example of easy to duplicate styles.

For these cards, I used minimal supplies. I used a nice thin washi tape that reminds me of a candy stripe. I then added several coordinating stickers that are beautifully opaque and thick from American Crafts. I found the collection to have many styles and patterns that I liked — so I decided to create several variations of cards.

Here’s a look at how quickly they came together.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I’ll see you again real soon with all new projects.

Holiday Cards – Day 3

Hi All,

I’m back with another clean and simple holiday card. I used some extra fine clear embossing powder with a simple sentiment to heat emboss a tone-on-tone look. I also choose to use some woodgrain embossed cardstock as a card base, I love the overall vintage feel of this card.

Here’s a look at how it all came together.
