It is Christmas in July! It is never too early to start making Christmas cards for 2017. For my card I used a digital image from Dilly Beans called, “Holly Framed Penguin.” I coloured the little critter with my Derwent Inktense Coloured Pencils. I added added a sprig of holly from my Stampendous, “Die & Rubber Stamp Set Pop Up Winter Tweets Birds Free Us.” The background paper acts as my sentiment.

I made a fun little graduation card for my friend’s grand daughter, and I thought it would also double as a thank you to her teacher for all her work ensuring that all her class passed to 2016-2017 school year. The owl digis is one by Dilly Beans called, “421 Hooter Framed”. I added the Graduation hat and scroll (a freebie) from Scrappers Delight. That is one reason why I love digi stamps, because you can easily resize them. I coloured the images with Copic markers, fussy cut them out and assembled the card. The inside sentiment says, “Thank you, Miss Johnson for helping me through the year.”

This week’s challenge is a sketch challenge. For my card I used an oval verses a circle and adjusted the sketch to fit a standard A2 card format. I used a digi from Delicious Doodles, called “On the Lookout”. I stop coloured it with my Copics. Next I cut it out using my oval Dienamics from MFT. I cut out some white embossed card stock and layered it according to the sketch.

For my card I used Tiddly Inks – Take Me Away. I coloured the image with Copics. I added Sparkle to the bubbles with Stickles, Glossy Accents, and gems. I added two strips of gold foil ribbon. The sentiment is from Kaisercraft. The diecut is from MFT.

A couple of months back. I took a class with Heather Telford. She is on the Design Teams for both Penny Black and Darkroom Door. She showed us how to create beautiful and colourful backgrounds using Distress Ink Stains on watercolour paper. These are the cards I made at home. The stamp sets are from Darkroom Door - Background Stamp – Tribal and Rubber Stamp Set – African Trees.
I stamped the images first and let dry for five minutes. Next using a wide brush and plain water I wet the paper surface. Next using the same brush I blending various shades of yellow, orange and red. Once dry, I glued image to the card base and added a sentiment.
