52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown – Colour Challenge

Our current challenge is a Colour Challenge. You are to make a card using Burgundy, Lime and Cream. I had to think about this one and and finally settled on using the adorable elves from My Favorite Things - BB Santa’s Elves. I made two cards, using all three elves from the stamp set. I started by stamping the images, colouring them using my Spectrum Noir Markers, fussy cutting them out, then layered them on my card base. I used solid burgundy and lime green card stocks, and a sentiment patterned cream and gold card stock. I used a retired sentiment from JustRite Stamps in Card 1, and a sentiment from the same MFT stamp set for Card 2. For the final touches I added some gold stickles, burgundy coloured pearls, and some gold sequins.

52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown – Sketch

Our new challenge is a Sketch Challenge. I kept to the basic sketch and added a little holly embellishment from Avery Elle. I used various green papers from my stash. I stamped the sentiment, using a retired sentiment stamp/die set from JustRite, in two colours of ink – Stampin Up – Gumball Green and Cherry Cobbler.

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.

For our final challenge of 2015 (where has the time gone, right!) anything goes. I used a snow angel from Scrapper’s Delight called appropriately Little Snow Angels. This set includes 6 adorable images and a “snow” sentiment. They are all pre-colored. I layered the angels on a Christmas themed embossing folder. Sentiment is from JustRite.
