This week’s challenge at Crafty Hazenut’s Christmas Challenge is making a Christmas Project with the word Joy in it. I used an adorable Digi from Bugaboo Stamps called AKV Nativity Set. I coloured it using Derwent Ink Intense Watercolour pencils. I added a stitched frame from MFT, a sentiment from SSS, and a twine ribbon to complete my card.joy - Copy

Using Embossing to create Texture!

Last week at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown, they challenged us to using the Embossing technique. Because I already had my folders out, I decided to go further into embossing.

I purchased this adorable Santa by Stamping Bellas called Santa is Stuck, I coloured the image using Copic markers. Note: I stamped two images into Neenah Solar White paper, and the other on Ranger’s Surfaces Specialty Stamping Paper, The latter paper did not work well with Copic markers and they did not blend well. I included it into my blog to show the unsuspected poor results.

Card 1 – I used a brick patterned stencil and Dreamweaver paste to create the textured white brick background. I also embossed and cut our a small strip of red brick using  the folder from Marianne Design Embossing Folder and Die – Bricks. To colour the stamped image, I used Copics on Neenah Paper. Sentiment is from SSS.

Card 2 – I used the embossing folder from the Marianne Design Embossing Folder and Die – Bricks set to create the textured background. To colour the stamped image, I used Copics on the Ranger Paper. Sentiment is from the same Santa is Stuck stamp set.

Card 3 – I used both the folder and die from the Marianne Design Embossing Folder and Die – Bricks set to create the textured background. To colour the stamped image, I used Copics on theNeenah Paper. Sentiment is from the same Santa is Stuck stamp set.
