Christmas Jumpers

Hi! Here are some cards I made for friends and relatives this year - I'm always so disorganised and send out my cards really late, but these were quite quick to make, which took the stress off a bit!

I found clipart images of a sweater and a reindeer, layered them and printed them off. I coloured with promarkers and then added eyes and nose with Nuvo Drops. I used Nuvo Drops on the trim of the jumper too.







I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

Inky Chicks: 'Christmas Card in Traditional Colours' (the red one!)

Deep Ocean Challenge: 'Silent Night' (the blue one!)

Crafty Creations: 'Any Holiday' (the green one!)

Working on my Wintery Skies

Hi! Here's another card using my cat digi from Vectorstock. I've added more colours into the sky, to get that wintery sunset look. I added glamour dust to the branches and snow drifts, for some sparkle.

Folded Trees

Hi! I've made a few cards, inspired by this week's Muse challenge:


I've used the CAS style and wavy line as inspiration in my cards. I masked the line and coloured with ink dusters. I made the trees by folding a scalloped semi-circle, and then adding bauble with Nuvo Drops.

And Yet Another Glittery Fairy Christmas Card

Hi! Here's another moon fairy card. For this one, I masked the moon and wings, and added the background with ink dusters, but I only coloured around the moon, rather than the whole card. I used promarkers for the moon and wings. I used a Wink of Stella pen to add sparkle to the moon, and Glamour Dust on the wings.

Another Glittery Fairy Christmas Card

Hi! Here's another moon fairy card. For this one, I masked the moon and wings, and added the background with ink dusters. I used promarkers for the moon and inks to colour the wings. I used a Wink of Stella pen to add sparkle to the moon, and Glamour Dust on the wings.

Glittery Fairy Christmas Card

Hi! I've made a few versions of the same card in different colours, and added some subtle embossed snowflakes to one of them, which I think is my favourite. I find it really hard to get my Christmas cards finished in time for Christmas, so making a few of the same card really helps to combat my poor organisational skills...

For this card, I masked the moon and wings, and added the background with ink dusters. I used promarkers to colour the moon and wings, and used a Wink of Stella pen to add sparkle.




I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

Addicted to Stamps: 'Make Your Mark'

CAS-ual Fridays: 'Glitter and Snowflakes'

Sweet Stampin': 'Let It Snow'

HLS CAS: 'Favourite Technique' - Masking! I love using ink dusters and sponging to create backgrounds, and masking ensures I don't accidentally colour my image! It is worth the faff of cutting the images out :)
