Christmas Cards

Plugging away at my christmas cards...here are some I did so far. This one is a magnolia stamp colored with copics. The background is from the Technique Junkies newsletter oldie but goodie from October 2002 called Acetate and Tissue. This is great because 1 sheet makes enough backgrounds for 2 cards. The snowflake stamps and rubons are from Stampin Up!



This one is a Try that Technique Top Latch card, it's a bonus technique from June 08. I used magnolia stamps, stampin up markers and stamps, spellbinders lined with stickles and Distress Ink purple for the edges.

Graffiti Birthday


I made this card for my husband's birthday from my son. My son skateboards and this was the perfect image from Mos Digital Stamps colored with copics. I used the TJ newsletter (Dec 04) called Graffiti. I thought it was perfect for my skateboarder.


Christmas Card - Brazen Brillance


I made this christmas card so I could try out the TJ newsletter "Try That Technique Thursday" brazen brillance. What a wonderfully easy technique with a great shimmer. I love this technique.


I used my spellbinders and magnolia stamp colored with copics. I used my bow easy for the bow.


Thanks for looking :)

Faux Designer Paper Birthday


Well, I am on a roll today getting lots of cards made. This one is for my friend Pete whose birthday is coming up. It's kind of girly but I am just going to tell him it's me shopping for his birthday.


Any who...the background is faux designer paper. The stamp is from Stampendous colored with copics. The dye ink is from Stampin Up.


Thanks for looking....


Birthday Card - Metallic Parchment


This is a card I made for my nephew Sam's birthday at the end of July...he is 5!


The image is from Dustin Pike, colored with copics. The background is from the TJ newsletter april 2010 called metallic parchment. I used stickles and glimmer mist as well.


Thanks for looking.


Christmas Card - Background Whimsy Copic Method


Here is another christmas card where I used a snowflake stamp set from Stampin Up. I used the TJ technique from this months newsletter called Background Whimsy Copic Method. This technique is so fast and easy I will use it again and again...


The stamp image is from Magnolia. She is colored with copics. I stamped the snowflake she is sitting on with Stampin Up craft ink and embossed it with UTEE. I then airbrushed it with the same colors used on the background. I also used some stampin up snowflake rub ons in silver.


Thanks for looking.



Christmas Card - Up and Over


Just trying to get a jump on some Christmas Cards...need to start some upcoming birthday cards as well.


This is the latest TJ newsletter technique up and over. It was so easy to do as always.


The house and deer are from Gina K Designs. The tree is from Stampin up. I colored the house with copics. I didn't have any gold stamp pads so I used versamark and Ranger Enchanted Gold embossing powder. I tied the ribbon with my bow easy.


Thanks for looking...
