Simple Christmas Design

Wednesday, June 4, 2014


A very simple Christmas card to make.  I seem to be making a lot of quick and easy cards these days don't I?

Doesn't get much easier than this.  The starry background was just lightly stenciled down the one side of the card.  Next, using the same color of Distress Ink, the tree was stamped.  Then I added a bit of snowy embossing powder on the tree.

A simple stamped sentiment, a sweet little sleigh for a pop of color and done!

Here's what I used:
Paper:  Bazzill Marshmallow
Ink:  Tumbled Glass Distress Ink and Versafine Onyx Black
Stamps:  Penny Black Winter Green and Waltzingmouse Say It Loud Winter Holiday
All the other stuff:  Memory Box Stars Starry Nights stencil, mini inking tool, Versamark pen, WOW Sparkling Snow embossing powder, heat gun, sleigh button (sorry don't have a clue where I found this, as it's been in my stash for a while!)

Challenges entered:
Merry Monday #111:  aqua, white and a splash of color
ATSM#98:  holiday

Thank You Flowers

A very quick and simple design today.

The background has been lightly stenciled with Distress Ink.  Then the three flowers were stamped in black and colored with Distress Markers.  I used just a wee bit of water to blend the colors gently, so that I didn't have to use watercolor paper.

A simple stamped sentiment and a smidge of Wink of Stella marker (which doesn't show up at all in this picture!) and done!

Here's what I used:
Paper:  Bazzill Marshmallow
Ink:  Ranger Archival Jet Black and Picked Raspberry Distress Ink
Stamps:  Altenew Painted Flowers and Label Love
All the other stuff:  Mini Tiny Circles TCW stencil; mini inking tool; Pumice Stone Distress Marker, Picked Raspberry Distress Marker, Squeezed Lemonade Distress Marker; waterbrush, Wink of Stella marker
