Online Holiday Card Class - day 1

Good Morning! I know it is Halloween, but I was able to complete the first part of day one's class.  The cards are based on the design by Kristina Warner - I used a Sunshine Designs stamp and coloured the image with copics.  I'll make the envelopes tonight.  Thanks for the great project - perfect for small gifts that a 3x3 card is better than a regular card!

Two new cards from La La Land's Halloween Release!

I had a great time creating these - the La La Land images are coloured with copics and I used glossy accents to highlight certain areas.  On the first card, I used Tim Holtz's seasonal paper, the spider die, and the clock.  The spider is painted with distress ink and then glossy accents.  The clock is also painted with distress ink and then sprayed with pearl accents.  Both are grungeboard.
 In this image, I used my airbrush with copics to create the background, the Tim Holtz die for the tree - Dyan's Dylusion spray (chocolate) and then stickles on top.  The witch is coloured with copics and, again, I highlighted areas with glossy accents.

Thanks for stopping by!!!!

World Card Making Day

I do have a card to share, that I finished before leaving for the weekend.  I used some techniques learned in the kick start class - using white dots to make the image pop and the use of glossy accents.

Happy World Card Making Day!

Happy Thanksgiving to all Canadians, too.  I am away but celebrated WCM Day with at trip to another one of my favourite stamp stores 'One Crazy Stamper', in Bolton, Ontario.  Lora has an online store, too - it's awesome! It was so great to see Lora - next time we will spend more time together, for sure!
I will celebrate the day by organizing my new stash and of course, having turkey dinner with family!

Kick Start Class - Day 11

Well, I didn't have time to finish all of the cards given in the 2 weeks so now I am completing them when I have time.  They are in no particular order - but there are some truly excellent ideas.  Here is the AI Owl stamp with the sentiment from Simon Says Stamp - the card is coloured with copics and glassy accents on his eyes.
