Assorted Christmas cards

Christmas Assortment

Hello everyone,
Sorry for such a long spell between postings. I've been busy making cards but just didn't have a chance to post some of them before going away for Christmas. I was able to make and send out a  total of 116 Christmas cards this year. An all time record for me. Some were quite fancy and time consuming to make and others were clean, simple and somewhat quick to make. I usually make 10 to 15 of each design. Here are just a few of my more simple creations. Hope you like them. Thanks for stopping by.

Faux leather card

Hello everyone,
Today I want to introduce you to a little tissue paper fun. The first card I want to show you is this masculine faux leather, birthday card. I created this look by air brushing white tissue paper with Copic markers. The colours I used are E35, E37 and E39. I scrunched up the tissue paper, then unscrunched it and glued it to a piece of card stock. I then used a sponge and applied Tim Holtz distress ink (Walnut Stain) to the creases. I love how it turned out.

For instruction on how to create tissue paper cards including this next one, check out my video tutorial below.

 A few more tissue paper creations.For these next two cards, I stamped outlined images on the tissue paper and coloured them with Copic markers before scrunching and gluing to the card stock.


 For creating this next card, once again i used copic markers to air brush white tissue paper.

And lastly another two stepped stamped image. So now it's your turn to have some fun creating with tissue paper. I hope you've enjoyed this post. Thanks for stopping by.
