I have many cards to share this week. As I posted earlier I did a Craft Fair this past weekend. I made so much stuff and I want to share it all with you this week. It also really worked out well, timing wise, with the challenge on the Hero Arts Blog. The challenge this month is "Card Sets". I didn't even realize what the challenge was until 2 or 3 days ago. I was psyched. So without further chatter here is the first 2 sets.
They are the same card, just different ribbons and paper strips. I started by coloring in the Winter Scene stamp with markers. They are just regular markers that I bought my son at Michael's. They have amazing colors and they work so well with this technique. After I colored each tree the color I wanted it I colored the deer and the tree and then lightly misted it with Inference Green perfect pearls and stamped it. It comes out AMAZING! It's so easy to do that my daughter and her friend were doing this technique all weekend long while making snowflake Christmas cards. After that I just added the ribbon, punches the paper with my Martha Steward doily punch and added some Hero Arts extra small pearls. I stamped the title with an Ali Edward's stamp by Technique Tuesday and I stamped a saying from the Holiday Sayings stamp set (see below) on the inside of the cards. They were so simple to make. I banged out 20 of them in no time.
A close-up of the inference green on the markers...so pretty in real life!
I stamped the envelopes too. =)
Have you made cards this holiday season? I'd love to see them. Link me up. I have missed so much on the www in my absence. I'll be back tomorrow with another card set. Until then.....
