Snowies

Hey everyone, today I have a card featuring C.C. Designs products!

Snowies 1.jpg

I coloured up this jem from Roberto’s Rascals Snowies set. There are 4 fantastic images in this set and I will have to colour up the other 3 very soon!

I used the Layering Tag dies to cut the background for the character, then I cut the Birch tree dies out of masking paper, then I used my distress inks to create the little scene for him.

The Sentiment also comes from that same digital stamp.

Pirate

ARF Pirate 1

Hey everyone, when I was in the studio yesterday making cards, I was digging through my pile of coloured images that hadn’t yet been put onto a card and ran into this gem. He jumped out at me because the other day I ran accross the pirate paper scraps in my scrap paper drawers (yes I am still on the try and use up some of my paper kick) and I think they were a perfect match. The image is Pirate Adventure from A Random Fan, and was coloured up with copic markers.

ARF Pirate 2

Unfortunately because of how long ago I coloured this it was before I was keeping track of all of my colours. And if you look at my other work you can see how far my colouring has come, even from this, BUT that doesn’t mean I don’t love this little image and he still deserved to be on a card. Remember, the more you colour the better you get!

Rudy

Reindeer 1

Hey everyone! I am back with my last Christmas card for this year! The current challenge over on the Polkadoodles challenge blog  is Anything Goes. So for this card I reached for the Work & Play 5 Hollybobs Collection. In this collection you will find some extra digital images aside from the main characters and that is where I found Rudy, this gem of a reindeer! You will also find all of the patterned paper I used on this card in that collection as well! It really is a fantastic holiday collection.

Reindeer close up

The image was printed out onto kraft coloured cardstock and coloured with my Faber-Castell Polychromos Pencils. I didn’t write down the colours I used as this was one of the first images I coloured up with them and I wasn’t entirely sure that it would turn out (that will teach me to always write them down!)

Reindeer 2

I used two of the lovely patterned papers from this collection and layered them on kraft and white cardstock. I had this wood veneer in my stash (probably came from Micheals) and painted it white then cut my image down to fit inside of it. The twine and lace are also from my stash.
