Holiday Series 2017 | Christmas card 4 | Koala T Crafts

For my fourth card in my holiday series I used a digi from Koala T Crafts.  KTC has lots of cute digis designed by Jen!  I decided to make a shaker card out of the snowglobe and use the poinsettia image inside my globe.

Video Tutorial


I colored the image with my Copic markers.  Here are the colors I used.
  • Poinsettias: R24, 27, 39, 89
  • Poinsettia centers: Y17 & E33
  • Base: E31, 33, 35, 57
  • Sign: C7, 5, 3, 00
  • Background: BG01, 0000

Holiday Series 2017 Project 3 | 5 Tags & 4 Christmas cards

I wanted to illustrate how you can take one image and make several projects.  The poinsettia stamp I used is the Simon Says Stamp set Poinsettia.  I colored it in several ways; Copic, PrismaColor and Zig Clean Color.  I also embossed some and just stamped others.  Then I used sentiments from Strawberry Jude Stamps Christmas Tags set and Honey Bee Merry and Joy set.  And the Rejoice die from Simon Says Stamp.

In making a series of projects like this I do them in an assembly line fashion.  First I stamped/embossed all the poinsettias and colored them and then cut them out on my Brother Scan N Cut.  Then I found the frames in Cricut Design Space and cut two froms from the white washed wood paper.  I used the negative and positive of these frames to create four cards.  Next I die cut all the tags then embossed each and used the spray stain.  Final step I attached the poinsettias.

I encourage you to find one image that you can make into several projects!

Be Still Peonies card | Strawberry Jude

I had previously showed the coloring of this beautiful stamp by Strawberry Jude.  Now I want to show you the making of the card.  I used a lot of supplies from the Simon Says Stamp October 2017 card kit Brushstroke.  There were a lot of beautiful papers in this kit and I really love the steel navy embossing powder.



The foil in the paper gives this card an elegant look.  The size of this card is A7 (5"x7").

The simple finish on the inside also lends itself to an elegant look.
