Today I am sharing with you my next project for the Country View Crafts Challenge.
I have loved seeing all of your projects so far so hope that you continue to join in. And if you haven't yet, there is still plenty of time.
Here is my second project for the challenge
I have, again, used that amazing Kay Carley poinsettia as my main image. This was stamped onto white card and then coloured using Polychromo pencils, cut out and shaped using an embossing ball tool.
My background was kept fairly simple. I layered Tim Holtz Christmas papers along with the Tim Holtz Wallpaper.
A stitched circle was die cut onto Kraft card and then inked around the edge using Walnut stain distress ink.
I created a cluster of flowers in the bottom right of the circle.
The bow was seam binding that I dyed using distress ink and crumpled.
To finish my card, I used Tim Holtz Clippings stickers which I inked around the edge. I also added some red Rhinestones.
Let me know what you think of my card.
Don't forget to pop over to the Challenge blog where you can see the inspiration from the rest of the design team. There is also still plenty of time to join in with the challenge and show us your creations. I love seeing how we have inspired you.
Hello again. Today I am sharing one of the cards that I have designed for Christmas.
Shhhh……. This one is for Dan. He should have this by now... but just in case!
The main image is PaperArtsy Zinski ZA33. This was stamped and coloured using Polychromo pencils. Once I cut the image out I added Glossy Accents to the eyes and chunky glitter to the bottom of the coat.
Next, I layered Tim Holtz papers which I distressed and then inked using walnut stain distress.
My next step was to start embellishing my card.
I used Tim Holtz tokens and mini lights.
Stars were added for finishing touches.
I really loved how the modern images created by Elena Zinski worked with the more vintage feel of the Tim Holtz papers.
Thank you for joining me today. I hope you like my card.
Today is the launch of the final Country View Crafts Challenge for 2018. Unsurprisingly, the theme is Christmas.
Here is my first project to show you this month.
I wanted to keep my card fairly simple but soft and elegant and so decided to use vellum as a base.
I started by stamping the gorgeous poinsettias from PaperArtsy Kay Carley EKC21 using Versamark ink and then covered with silver embossing powder and heat set the powder using my heat gun.
I then used a Versamark pen to draw a line around the edges which I then sprinkled with powder and heat set to create the border. This was then set aside.
Next, I stamped the poinsettias onto white card, coloured them using Polychromo pencils and cut them out.
To give my flowers shape, I used an embossing ball tool and rubbed over the front and back until I was happy. These were then layered together and stamens added to the middle. The poinsettias were added to the bottom corner of my card.
To finish, I added a Tim Holtz ideology Word Band which formed the sentiment on my card.
Thank you for joining me today. Don't forget to pop over to the Country View Crafts Challenge blog where you can see all of the amazing inspiration from the design team. There is still time to create Christmas cards and so I hope that you join in and show us your Christmas designs.
See you in a couple of weeks when I show you my second project for the Challenge.
The background for this coin was part of the previous background in the first project.
This time I used a vintage Santa stamp which I coloured using a water brush and Distress Ink.
I loved making these Artist Trading Coins and can see them being addictive. Even better, if you don't want to use them to swap they can be easily mounted onto a card. Though I have to admit I am not giving this one away as I love it!!
I hope that I have inspired you to join in with the Country View Crafts challenge this month. Don't forget, by joining in and linking your project on the CVC blog site you may be in with a chance of winning a gift voucher.
Tonight I am over at the PaperArtsy blog showing you a gift box that I have altered as a Christmas gift. The theme for this fortnight is 'Tissue Paper'.
My project centred around an ATC storage box from That Craft Place. I started by painting it using Fresco Finish paints. For the tissue paper technique I stamped using Archival ink and then adhered this to the box.
To go with my gift box I altered one of the ATCs that come with the box. I also created a gift bag using Tissue Wrap and decorated this in the same way before filling it with sweets.
Pop over to the PaperArtsy blog to see more information about how I created this project. Thanks for joining me this evening.
