Merry Christmas Oh Deer

Tis the season for Christmas cards!

This card is made from a sample from the 50 Card swap. We used it for our Holiday Come and Play Card Buffet!  I used the Z4015 Woodland Wishes Thin Cut bundle to create this card.  I love the clean cuts you get when cutting images out with the thin cuts.

There are a few layers in here to create dimension the card without creating the need for extra postage or hand postage.    The base is done with some natural cardstock that CTMH used to sell that I found in my stash.  I’m in a use my stash mode.

Cut a Colonial panel out so it’s nested or framed by the natural cardstock.  Tear the bottom Colonial so it looks like it’s snow.  Stamp the images you need to stamp and cut those out with the thin cuts.  Create the layers by laying the thin cut tree so it slightly overlaps the stamped tree.  Have the deer have one set of feet slightly under the torn cardstock and slightly over the top of it.

Stamp “Merry” on the bottom of left side.   Using 3D tape, pop up the tag title.  Thanks for swinging by to my corner of the internet. Stop by for more art through out the month.

Dreamy Backgrounds

Another one of my loves is watercolor backgrounds because watercolors make such dreamy backgrounds!

S1506 Ice Cream Dream Card 3 Linda Creates~ Linda Caler www.lindacreates.com

To create this background, I used a technique featured in the Annual Inspiration on page 55 “A Blot of Ink”.

a bit of blot, watercolor backgrounds, linda creates ~ linda caler. www.lindacreates.com

 

I used a Z1938 sponge dauber (3 to be accurate) to put Lagoon, Smoothy, and Pear inks on the Y1012 4″x5″ block.  With a Z1380 Spray Pen filled with water, I spritzed the block.  More water makes it more diluted for color and you get a better spread of color.

S1506 Ice Cream Dream Card 3 Linda Creates~ Linda Caler www.lindacreates.com

You’ll get a different background every time you use this technique – part of why I love doing it.  After I make the background, I put out what I need for the card.

S1506 Ice Cream Dream Card 3 Linda Creates~ Linda Caler www.lindacreates.com

Because I did not want to draw attention away from the background, I did not color in the sentiment.

S1506 Ice Cream Dream Card 3 Linda Creates~ Linda Caler www.lindacreates.com

Colored in the ice cream treats with ShinHan Touch Markers.  Added Wink of Stella to add some shimmer.  A few little gems added to the sentiment, I was happy with the card.

FMS191 – Card 1

I created this card “Wonderful” for FMS191 Challenge. I was making cards for a teacher’s gift (more on this later).  The FMS was perfect.

I used D1627 Your Own Kinds of Wonderful stamp set.  I did some 1st and 2nd generation of the butterflies.  I used Stickles Diamond Glitter Glue on the 2nd generation butterflies to pull out some of the color from the ink, giving the glitter glue a light blue water color effect.

I colored the butterflies with the ShinHan Touch Markers.  I used Wink of Stella Clear to add shimmer to the colored butterflies.  The stitching is a stamp (I love all stitching that can be done by stamps or dies!).  It was definitely fun to play in this challenge plus get some other things taken care of!

FMS 190 Like You A Latte

Here’s my take on Freshly Made Sketches 190 (FMS 190): Like You A Latte!  It also works for the Heart2HeartChallenge – to create a man’s card.  I made this for my husband for Father’s Day.

All product are Close to My Heart except the Stickles I dug out a very old stamp set – Coffee Stain. We love all things coffee in our house so I tend to keep these sets long past their retirement date!  I used one of my favorites from the Seasonal Expressions, C1616 Treats of Friendship:
