52 Christmas Card Throwdown – 52CCT7-19 – Theme – Winter Trees

Allison from the 52CCC Design Team has chosen Winter Trees as the Theme Challenge this month. I used a new stamp from Penny Black called, Snowy Village 40-558. I started by stamping the image using MFT Black ink. Next, I coloured the building with Copic markers. Using blue toned Oxide Distress Inks I sponged the background. For the finishing touch, I flicked water droplets over the image to produce the oxide effect.

52 Christmas Card Throwdown – CCT4-19 – Technique – Heat Embossing

This week’s challenge at 52 Christmas Card Challenge is to make a card using heat embossing. I selected two stamps by Hero Arts. I started with white embossing the trees in white Hero Arts Embossing powder. Next using various blue shades of Oxide Ink, I sponged the Neenah Solar cardstock background in various tones. I cleaned the ink off the embossed image with a baby wipe. I added the sentiment in Versafine Black and finished the project by layered the image on white and blue cardstock. I decided to flick water into the card for the effect.

52 Christmas Card Throwdown – Challenge 52CCT42-18-Technique-Masking

DT Badge

Our technique challenge at 52CCT is masking. There are many different masking techniques and I have created 2 different cards: one simple and one more complex.

Card 1 Simple Masking

simple masking

For this card, I masked off a 2-inch strip of the card base, then sponged on 3 shades of Oxide Distress Inks on blue/green tones. I removed the masking tape, then stamped snowflakes (MFT-Snow Flurry stamp set) along the inked bar in various shades of Stampin Up inks and Versamark with Hero Arts gold embossing powder. The sentiment is also from MFT (Joyous Christmas) I added a few pearls to finish the card

Card 2 – Complex Masking

I stamped out a scene/sentiment using Papertry Ink. “Winter Hills Stamp Set.” I also stamped the house image on a thin sheet of masking paper. I coloured the house scene with Copic markers, cut out the house I stamped on the masking tape, removed the masking back, placed it over the original, used some hill shapes to mask off part of the image. I sponged on hill shapes. Once I had the image as wanted I set it aside, I die cut a snowflake unto the front of an A2 card, using dies from PI, and two separate smaller snowflakes from silver and blue papers. Assembled the card.
