Week of 12/17/17 cards

MIX256 - Silent Night For this week's challenge, make a holiday card that is either calm (using all cool colors) or bright (using all warm colors). 

CCC18JAN - Silhouette

I am trying to use stuff up. These JOY letters were sent to me and sitting on my desk. I masked off the CS and sponged distress oxide on the base. Then used up some white CS to punch out the berries and colored those with copics.

Yeah one more item off my desk and a Christmas card for next year. Whoo Hoo!!!


WT667 - Color me Christmas

This super cute image is prestamped from Hobby House. I colored it with copics and added some pencil strokes to the penguin.

The light blue layer I sponged on some paint then white heat embossed the snowflakes. Finished off with some DPS, embossing and added snowflakes with stickles. The sentiment is an old winter/Christmas set of stickers that I am trying to use up.

My 2018 goal is to use stuff up and I have started the goal now so that I have a good head start on it for next year. That includes images that are prestamped that are not colored, stickers and leftover scraps. 

Copics Used

Let It Snow

SC676 - This weeks sketch

Stamped the super fun House Mouse and colored with pencils. Added Nuvo Drops to the pin heads. Cut down many fun scraps and added it around the image. Finished off with the paper cut button that has been sitting on my desk and some bakers Twine.

My goal for 2018 is to make cards using up stuff sitting on my desk and scraps. This paper button I have had for a year and I love all the scraps I used around the image.

Sew Much Fun 

IC629 - Christopher Radko where I found this Tree Topper.

I loved the nontraditional colors in that tree topper so I kept the card in very similar colors.

Sprayed gold on the die cut tree and cut part of the bottom off to fit on the panel. and added pearls.

Used a few different DPs and stamped the sentiment.
