I have all of the Fall cards I need, so have started on some Christmas Projects...... I used new releases from McMahon Five Designs for my projects today.
Technique Junkies- The 3D and Fun Folds Paper Crafts- and I found a number of projects that I want to try......this is the first one- it is called a feestanding pop-up. It was quick and easy to put together. I used an image and sentiment from the Funny Little Christmas set. I colored the image with Copic Markers- I sponged on a sky (using Soft Sky and an oval scalloped punched out scrap), and stitched around the edge in a Zig-Zag stitch. There are Versamark Dazzle stars stamped on the Pop-up base. HERE is the link for more info about the CD- Oh- say hi to Pat for me if you decide to order a CD!
Here is a close up of the image and sentiment:
I could not resist the Vintage Santa image, 'Santa's Song' - and had to give coloring him a go- Copics and Reds can be a touch challenging to me, but I was happy with how the card came out......
The background paper is My Minds Eye and the rest is from Joann Fabric stacks. I used Technique Junkies Out of the box and Wisped Frames for the image. I colored with Copics and added liquid applique to Santa's fur and beard. I used Ranger Antique Linen distress ink for sponging around the Nestability frame. There are also Sakura Gelly Roll Pen accents on the card- which was printed on Cryogen White cardstock- so it is very shimmery to start out with. I added a letter to Santa...and a sentiment from Create with TLC.
Have you started making your Christmas cards yet???
Thanks for stopping by!
