CAS Christmas April Reminder – Ornament

 

Hi there!  Just poppin’ in for a quick reminder of this month’s Ornament challenge at CAS Christmas.  The challenge closes on April 24, so there is still time to play along.  Here’s my card.

 

 

This is the first year I’m making Christmas cards outside of the holiday season, so I thought I would incorporate a little spring rainbow into my card. 😉   The ornaments were stamped with Memento black ink on a stitched rectangle panel die cut from Neenah cardstock.  Masking was used where they overlapped.

 

 

Coloured with Copics in rainbow colours.  Drew in the strings with a black Copic Multiliner and a ruler.  Black heat embossed the sentiment with clear glitter embossing powder.  Mounted the panel with foam adhesive to a white top folding card base.  Finished with clear shimmer on the ornaments for more sparkle.

 

 

 

Now It’s your turn to add your CAS ornament Christmas card to our gallery.  If you need more inspirations, head over to the CAS Christmas blog HERE.  Thank you for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day!

Big Rainbow Birthday Wishes

Hi there.  Okay, I’m back to quickly share another fun rainbow birthday card.  If you can’t tell yet, I love rainbow colour cards. 😂

 

 

All stamping was done with Memento black ink on an A2 stitched rectangle panel die cut from Neenah cardstock.

 

 

The hat was stamped first, followed by the middle elephant, then the two smaller elephants last.  Each image was masked in between.  The bottom 1” area was masked next before distress inks in rainbow colours were blended on with a mini blending tool.

 

 

Masks were then removed and the elephants were coloured with cool gray Copic markers.  Added clear shimmer to the rainbow background for some sparkle.  Stamped the sentiment in black and mounted the panel to a white top folding card base to finish.

 

An easy one.  And I may or may not have another rainbow birthday card to share. 😂   Until next time.  Thank you for stopping by.  Have a nice day!

Halftone Birthday

Hi there.  I’m back quuckly today to share a super simple birthday card.

The halftone circles were stamped in rainbow colours along the right-hand side of a white Stitched Rectangle.  Inks are from Altenew, except for orange and red.

The celebrate sentiment was stamped with Archival black ink.  The you (can’t remember where it’s from) was die cut twice.  One from white and the other from black cardstock to offset them for a shadow effect.  The stitched rectangle was adhered to a white top folding card base and clear shimmer was added to the sentiment for some sparkle

 

Thank you for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your weekend.
