Another Snow Buddies Christmas Card

IMG_1186 copy

This card is similar to another one I made on striped kraft card stock, but I decided to change up the colors a bit. I went for a non-traditional christmas color scheme of bermuda bay card stock and kraft.

Card base is bermuda bay textured card stock, layered with kraft. I stamped the snowmen from Snow Buddies in Brown Stazon ink and colored them in with SU Watercolor Pencils and the Blender Pen. To accent the snowflakes, I colored them in with White Gel Pen.

Along the bottom of the card, I drew in a mound of “snow” with my white colored pencil, traced along the top edge with my Glue Pen and then sprinkled on Dazzling Diamonds to highlight.

The sentiment is from Chit Chat Rub Ons, on white card stock punched out with the Word Window Punch layered on bermuda bay punched with the Modern Label Punch. The ribbon is Bermuda Bay Polka Dot Grosgrain.

Copic Colored Snow Buddies Christmas Card

I recently jumped on the Copic Marker bandwagon–they make me look like a much better artist than I am! I’m still learning how to use them, and they truly are amazing. Just like watercoloring with Stampin Up Markers, they allow you to blend and shade your images.

This card was made using the ever famous Snow Buddies stamp set. I stamped them in Memento black ink (you have to use that ink with Copics) and colored them in with the copic markers.

The image is mounted on a piece of Real Red textured card stock. In the upper corner, I used the Word Window Punch and punched real red card stock, adhered them to the image layer, and added Circle Rhinestone Brads with the cropadile.

As for the card base, I used Old olive card stock cut to 4  1/4″ x 11″ with a top fold at 5 1/2″. I also added a layer of Holiday Bulk Buy DSP in a baja breeze snowflake pattern to pick up the blues in the snowmen image.

Slide Out Pocket Cards–Holiday and Baby Themes

This is the card I made in my video tutorial (see previous post). Outside pocket was made using Real Red textured card stock, with Christmas Cocoa DSP on the front panel. Inside, the slide out portion was made using Real Red and Whisper White card stock, with the upper corners rounded by the Corner Rounder Punch.

Stamp is from Snow Buddies (a Level 2 Hostess set) that I embossed with black embossing powder, colored in with Aquapainter. The window on the front was made from 1 3/8″ Circle Punch and Scallop Circle Punch. The ribbon is Real Red Polka Dot Ribbon.

It’s hard to see in the photo, but I punched the insert with the Slit Punch to make it a gift card holder.

This version uses Urban Oasis DSP (retired) as the outer jacket. The inside is Kiwi Kiss layered with Whisper White card stock. Again, I used the Corner Rounder Punch on the tops only. Stamp is from Goody Goody Gumdrops (Retired Hostess Set), embossed with Black embossing powder and colored in with Aquapainter. To finish it off, I tied some Very Vanilla 5/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon around the card.

Yet another version in a more girly color scheme. This would make a great baby shower card for a little girl, or simply change the stamp image to a cupcake and you have a fun birthday card! Card base is chocolate chip, layered with Sweet Always DSP in the polka dot pattern. I ran a strip of regal rose card stock through the crimper, attached it to the front with dimensionals and then tied some fabulous Chocolate Chip Satin Ribbon around the front.

Finally, this is the version I’ll be giving to my friend for her baby shower. Inside, I made a slit using the Slit Punch to hold a gift card. The outside is Barely Banana card stock, layered with Delicate Dots DSP (from last SAB). The green is Kiwi Kiss and the duck is from Goody Goody Gumdrops.
