Yeti And The Snowy Village

Time for one more Xmas card! In this card I first started off by stamping all the images such as yeti, houses and trees with a little masking involved. After I masked everything, I ink blended the background with distress ink. Mostly chipped sapphire plus a little bit of broken china and tumbled glass. After I white embossed the sentiment, I splattered some water on the background and decorated the sky with white gel pen and Nuvo white crystal drops. After I Copic colored the images, I layed down lots of Ranger stickles frosted lace on the ground where houses and yeti stands. Unfortunately they are not very visible in the picture.




I'm submitting this card to the following challenges.

Supplies used in this card:
  • Mama Elephant Me and my yeti stamp set (ME)

House Warming From The Drawer

I have attended quit a few house warming parties this year and I realized how demanding it could be to make house warming cards. On top of that, I was really amazed by the look and feel of this big window shutter die from Waffle Flower. I was excited make cards out of it.
 
So this is the card I made. Everything was colored using copic markers.

Whimsical Winter Shaker Card

I've made another Xmas card using this whimsical winter animals. This time I have in mind creating a green background with pine tree leaves. I used distress inks for the entire background and then colored the images using Copic markers. I've seen people using Lawn Fawn chunky glitter for shaker cards and I really enjoyed the look of it after giving it a try.

Xmas Gift Tall Tags

Hello! I'm sharing another Xmas gift tag I made for the holiday season.

After I die cut the tags from colored cardstock, I applied white pigment ink to the tags with stencil. While waiting for the ink to dry, I stamped and colored the images with distress ink markers. Then I adhered them to the tags as well as the die cut sentiment.

Xmas Gift Tags With Foreset Friends

Lately I have seen videos of people making cards/tags as gifts and I thought it was a really good idea. Thanksgiving is right around the corner and I decided to make some tags as Thanksgiving gifts.

I first stamped the animals on the tags and covered them up with masking papers. I then ink blended the snow banks and skys with distress inks. After peeling off the masking papers, I colored the animals with Copic markers. Finally, I sprinkled some water as well as white acrylic paints to create snow effects.

I really enjoyed the process but I have to say, mass producing these tags were more time consuming than I initially thought.

Ready For Christmas

Today I'm using another one of my favorite stamp sets from Mama Elephant 2017 October release. I wanted to create soft colors with these stamps. I picked winter ink from Mama Elephant and wild rose ink from Lawn Fawn to stamp stripes on the front panels. For inner panel, I used Copic markers to color the images and applied very light shades of distress ink to the background. In the end, I put very generous amount of Stampendous shaved ice as shaker element inside the window.

Holiday Card With Color Pencil

I've been wanting to try color pencil for a long time and I finally did it. The skill is different from water color or Copic coloring and need lots of patience. I defintely need some more practices. But it was really fun. After finishing coloring, I used white gel pen to add fur texture on the hat and applied white ink + snow stencil to the background. Hopefully it's not looking too boring.
