It is that popular wedding season again. We are challenging you to make a wedding card(s) this month. I actually made two different cards, pus a thank you card for the minister.

Card 1 – I used a digi stamp by A Day for Daisies called, “Wedding Veil.” I started by colouring the images with my Copics. It is really hard to notice, but I added some clear Wink of Stella to the Veil. I cut it out into an oval using my oval dies from MFT. I also cut a large Flourish using another die by MFT. I used a very pretty printed vellum as my background and layered the image and flourish. For the finally touch I added some gemstones.

For Card 2: I used a fun digi from Tiddley Inks called, “You and Me.” I decided to stay fairly neutral so I gray tones with skin and hair colours only. I cut thr image and background oval using my oval dies from MFT. Again I layered coloured vellum over a printed card stock. I used 4 gems to hid to glue dots I used to secure the corners.

Card 3: I made to be given to the minister after the ceremony. I included a small envelop and a slot to hold it inside the card for the donation to the church. For this card I relied on the beauty of the card stock. I cut it to suit the 5×7 card format, mini envelop, slot, and card envelop. The Thank you die is from IO.

C.R.A.F.T. Challenge 399 – 19th of January – Christmas

DTbadge

I know Christmas just passed, but it is never too early to start your Christmas cards, I make over 250 Christmas cards each year so starting in January works for me. One of my favorite Digi Stamp companies is “A Day for Daisies“. They have a vast variety of digi stamps and their Design Team always have fantastic samples online. Check them out!

When I think of Christmas, I think aboiut shopping! (Another thing I like to start doing early). I use a beautiful stamp called, “Tiny Fashionable Present“. While I used this digi as a Christmas card, it could easily be a Birthday, Anniversary, Valentine or Just Because card. I coloured the image with Copics. I layered it with similar aqua tones. The “Joy” sentiment is a die cut from Creative Expressions Festive Collection – Joy Die Set by Sue Wilson. To finish it off I added a few gems for that added bling.

I used a digi stamp from A Day for Daisies called “A Mother’s Burden”. I coloured it using COPIC markers. The patterned card stock is from my stash. The flowers were created with two part punches by Nellie Snellen.

130 Christmas Cards for Seniors!

christmas-images-1

Every year I make 130 Christmas cards for the Belmont Long Term Care Home. It is my way of paying it forward for the fabulous care they provided my mother. I love to colour while watch TV so I will stamp numerous images and hand colour them with Copic Markers, Zig Water Colour Brushes, Derwent Inktenses Pencils, or Distress inks. Once I get a number completed, I then sit down and start to assemble my cards. No two cards are the same, While I may use the same image, I colour them differently, use a different card format, different card stock, etc. I also make Fall/Thanksgiving/Halloween, Easter/Spring, Valentine’s Day, Remembrance Day (for the veterans), plus birthday cards. It keeps me busy, and I really enjoy it. I also make cards for myself and friends. I dropped the cards off for distribution on December 1, 2016.
