A simple, red Christmas

I have a very simple Christmas card to share with you today and it’s red! The stamp is by Magnolia, coloured in with Copics, and the chipboard by Make it Crafty. I’ve hand cut out the stamp and put it on a subtly patterned paper which I’ve framed by red card stock.

Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E02, E13, E15, R20 (red) R22, R24, R27, R29, (hair) BV20, BV23, BV25, BV29, (white) W0, W1, W3, (brown) E70, E71, E74, E77, E79, (yellow) Y13, Y19, Y38, (green) YG61, YG63, YG67

Here is my second Christmas card for May. As the first one was a CAS card, I’ve made this one a layered one. I guess I should get started on my Christmas cards for June soon!

I’ve used another Lili of the Valley stamp for this. The papers are mostly Maja Design and the chipboard is from Make it Crafty.

 

Copics used: (background) B32, (black) W5, W7, W9, (white) C0, C1, C3, (bear) E41, E42, E43, E44, (red) R22, R24, R27, R59, (green) YG61, YG63, YG67

30 degress Celcius and I was making Christmas cards to make sure I finished my two for May in time. It felt wrong, hahaha.

I used a stamp from Lili of the Valley. I do love James Bear! As I wanted to keep the card simple, I just cut strips of card stocks from some I had left over. I made sure to do random colours. Then I clued them all together diagonally across the card base, but made sure to keep two of the corners free. I then cut off whatever was outside the card base, typed up a sentiment, coloured in the background layer of the Make It Crafty chipboard and voila, the card was done!

Copics used: (fur) E71, E74, E77, (tree) YG13, YG61, YG63, YG67, (red) R22, R24, R27, R39, (yellow) Y13, Y19, Y38, (grey) W1, W3, (sky) B32

First Tuesday of the month and you know what that means, right? It’s time for a new challenge at Tiddly Inks! This time we’re playing around with a moodboard. I’ve used the adorable Wryn Wishes, coloured with no-lines technique and given her a peach coloured dress. I played around to get a colour combination I liked and I think I’ll use that one more for sure!

The layout as kept really simple with some craft card stock and Maja Design paper. The frame and sentiment chipboard are from Make it Crafty and I coloured them in to match the image.

Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E02, E13, E15, E25, (hair) E41, E42, E43, E44, (dress) Y000, YR00, YR02, R22, YG61, G21, G40, (flower) C1, C3, YG13, YG67, YR00, R22,

The colour theme for the magazine was greens and yellows, so I decided, very last minute, to do a really bright, cheerful, green card! I used various papers to create a layered card. I wanted lots of layers as the other card I made was clean and simple.

I decided to use a Tiddly Inks stamps for this, Molly Celebrates seemed suitable for the occasion and she is coloured in with copics. I decided to both distress the edges and use frantage on top.

For the greeting I went with a printed out work onto one of the background papers and coloured up one of Make It Crafty‘s chipboards in colours matching the dress. To soften the edges a little I decided to paint all the edges with white acrylic paint. Then I added a ribbon and some sparkly green paper to make the card even more festive!

As a few photos of the card was required I will show them here. too!

This is a close-up of the greeting and chipboard. I used the same colours on the chipboard as I did on the dress. The same goes for the icandy.
