Christmas Cocoa Wishes

Hello there.  I have another Christmas card to share today.  In honour of National Cocoa Day, I made a cocoa inspired Christmas card.  Unfortunately, I don’t have any cocia sentiments, but I will have to rectify that in the new year. 😂

 

 

Masked and stamped the images with black Memento ink on Neenah cardstock.  Masked the bottom of the panel and blended Tumbled Glass distress ink around the image, and then went back in and ink blended through a Sun Ray stencil.

 

 

Removed all masks and coloured with Copics.  Next, stamped the steam with VersaMark and heat embossed with clear glitter embossing powder.  I wanted a subtle effect, but it may be too subtle.  Added clear shimmer to the rays then black heat embossed the sentiment.

 

 

For some interest, the panel was die cut with a stitched scallop frame.  A second frame was die cut to stack for a bit of dimension.  Mounted all pieces onto a white top folding card base and added clear sparkly sequins to finish.

Thank you for stopping by.  Happy Holidays!

Noel Tweetings

Hi everyone.  I can’t believe it’s December 1st already!  The crazy busy season has started. So I’m just sneaking in a CAS Christmas card.

 

 

Stamped the bird image with Memento black ink on a scrap of X-Press It paper.  Coloured it with Copics then die cut out with the matching die.

 

 

Die cut the branch (retired Memory Box – thanks Nancy 😉) from brown cardstock.  Die cut Noel twice from white scraps.  Ombré coloured Noel with Copics and added clear glitter.

 

 

Adhered all the pieces onto a white stitched rectangle from my stash.  Placed a snow stencil over the whole panel and applied white embossing paste.  Once the paste dried, mounted the panel with foam adhesives onto a white top folding card base to finish.

Thank you for stopping by.  Happy holidays!

Nice List

Hi there.  Took a quick break from design work and created a really fun CAS Christmas card.  From here on out, it will probably be Christmas cards with the occasional birthday cards thrown in since I have some coming up.

 

 

Let’s get right to it.  Die cut a Zig Zag Stitched panel from Neenah cardstock.  Stamped the Santa image off the edge with Intense Black ink and coloured with Copics.

 

 

Masked the image and the area above Santa’s ankles and sponged black ink for the ground area to anchor Santa.

 

 

Die cut you from red glitter cardstock and white heat embossed the sentiment on a black strip of cardstock. Fussy cut around the word list since it’s taller than the rest of the sentiment. Thought the red glitter diecut was enough, so no embellishments.  Adhered the panel to a white top folding card base and it was done.

Thank you for visiting.  Have a great week.

Double Beary Christmas Spinner

Hi there.  Just getting today’s card in under the wire for a challenge.  So it’s a quick one and it’s another Christmas card, but this time it’s an interactive spinner card.

 

 

Pair skating was the idea behind my card!. 😉  Stamped the bears and ice from NBUS Lawn Fawn Beary Happy Holidays  on X-Press It paper with black Memento ink, coloured with Copics, then die cut out with the matching NBUS dies.

 

 

A white A2 card base was created from Bristol paper. Blueprint Sketch, Salty Ocean and Tumbled Glass distress inks were blended with a mini blending tool for the background and spritz with water to give a snowy look.  NBUS Infinity Oval dies from Hero Arts were used to die cut the window opening on the card front and to create the frame.

 

 

The sentiment from Hero Arts Color Layering Christmas Tree was white heat embossed on black cardstock.  Silver thread was sandwiched between the bears’ paws and skates.  Clear shimmer was added for some sparkle to finish.

 

And here it is in action.

Purple Winter Wishes

Hello again.  I am quickly popping in with a second post today to share a non-traditional colour CAS Christmas card.

 

 

The penguin image was stamped with Memento black ink on X-Press It paper, coloured with Copics and die cut out with the coordinating die (my alignment was off, so I had to do some fussy cutting to try to even it out). The sentiment was white heat embossed on a strip of black cardstock.

 

 

The background was created by ink smooshing Wilted Violet and Seedless Preserves Distress Oxide Inks on watercolor paper, then die cutting with a circle die.

 

 

A Zig Zag Stitched panel was die cut from watercolor paper and adhered to a white top folding card base.  All the pieces were assembled and mounted to it.  Clear shimmer and some sequins finished off the card.

And that’s it for today.  Thank you for stopping by.  Have a great day or night wherever you are.
