First Christmas Card Made!

First Christmas Card made with the set free with the Papercrafter Magazine that my article is in. I used clear Nuvo Drops for the snow to fill the white space. I cut a piece of the card in the set to make the ground, popped out the die cuts, trimming any edges that were needed, and layered them up on the card.

I made this yesterday, I tried going in the craft room today but according to my car it’s 36.5 degreees today and as hot air rises, upstairs is out of bounds today – unless I want to end up as a puddle on the floor 😃

Twinkling H2O Cards Made Up

I stamped the flower and butterfly images using Versamark ink in my Tim Holtz stamping platform. I then heat embossed with Wow Embossing Powder Opaque Bright White. I coloured the images with LuminArte Twinkling H2O’s – Ivy Iris, Cherry Sorbet and Razzleberry. I also used these colours for the background of the butterflies. I matted the finished panels in coordinating card and made the cards up. As a finishing touch I splattered some of the same colours using a brush on the backgrounds and added pearl gems or Nuvo Drops in Pink Champagne and Wisteria Purple. Finished off with sentiments and peel offs.

Watercolour Flowers

I’ve not really done much water colouring but after watching a few videos on YouTube I had a go. I picked up a few tips and this was my first attempt on watercolour card. I used a small palette I already had plus my Twinkling H2O’s.

The main tip I saw was to lay water down on the pre stamped Versamark and white embossed image before adding the colour. I’m very pleased with the result so will be practicing more in future as I think water coloured flowers look beautiful.

Lilac Fairies

I’m really into my pinks, lilacs and greens at the moment – it helps having embellishments like Nuvo Drops, Shimmer Powders and Distress Oxides all in those colours as I then have a selection of similar colours to use. This is the front, inside left and inside right of the same card. I used Tim Holtz Distress Oxide for the front background and various rubber stamps. The insert and die cuts are from a Hunkydory kit.

Pixie Dust

Large topper made using Creative Expressions Craft Cosmic Coloured Pixie Dust (appropriate for a pixie card!) in Rich Gold on top of Tonic Studios Nuvo Shimmer Powder Cherry Bomb. The Pixie toppers are from Hunkydory. I die cut a fairy (don’t know what make) and finished off with letters and Tonic Studios Nuvo Drops in Ebony Black and Pink Champagne. I will share the finished card when I make it up as the Nuvo Drops will have dried differently.
