CDD Christmas Eve Scene Cards

Hi. I'd like to share some Christmas Card I've made using a wonderful Craftin Desert Diva's digital stamp named Christmas Eve. I feel with this set the possibility are endless as it's such a huge set allowing you to make lots of totally different cards/project time and time again. The scene with the sentiment on this card is from the Ornament Bear digital stamp set.



For the first card I've coloured the image using a mix of Touch Five Markers and water colour pencil. I also used Distress Ink to create my free hand lined background

I've used the Craftin Desert Diva's 
December Facebook Mood Board Challenge Photo as my inspiration for my card's. I've used the colours, the Christmasy feel I get on the Mood Board as my inspiration. We'd love for you to stop by and join the fun!


I'd like to enter my first card into the following challenges
Pearly Sparkles - #23 Merry Christmas

This is my second card using this digital stamp set.



For the second card I've used only water coloured pencils. This background has been made free hand using water and splats of Distress Ink. On this card I cut the centre of the fireplace to attemp to make interactive card. It didn't go quite as planned. As the movable presents behind the fireplace that should be able to slide up and hide within the card. But annoyingly they keep getting stuck.

ABB Festive Greet Card

Hello! I'm sharing a simple Christmas card this time using a fabulous Art By Barb Designs Digital Stamp called Festive Greet. I love this scene image. I like the fact that depending on the child's colour of clothes it could be a boy or girl. Here a link to when the owner of Art By Barb coloured this image so amazingly!

This is my take on the image.


I coloured this image using lots of different mediums including Distress Inks, Touch Five Markers, white gel pen and black ball point pen. I made the moon 3D with homemade texture paste. For the background I used an embossing folder like a stamp by adding distress ink to the folder and stamping it on the base paper.
I'll be posting this card in the Art By Barb Facebook Group.

SBS Untraditional Wrapping It Up Rio

Hi. I'm here today to share my untraditional Christmas Card using the SBS Friends November/December Facebook Group Progressive Challenge. The Simply B Stamps is called Wrapping It Up Rio and the sentiment came with her. I'd also like to share a link to the Simply B Stamps Blog.
For this Facebook Challenge there are several rules which can be found in the album description within the group.


I've coloured her using Touch Five Markers, Pencils and ball point pen's (as stated by the rules avoiding the traditional colours of red and green.) I've added a few layers of patterned paper (as required in the rules.) To embellish I've used a few pr-made flowers to finish this card.

CAAB Jesus Is The Only Way Card

Hello. I'm back a little bit later then planned with a card I've made using this beautiful Cute As A Button Digital Stamp called Jesus Is The Only Way. I've used this image as inspiration for the new Cute As A Button Challenge Blog #40. This challenge is a Anything Goes with optional Winter theme.


I used a embossed song notes for the background paper. I coloured the image using watercoloured pencils. I decided to finish of with a wooden heart button which is holding up some beads on thread with a silver heart and cross charm.

I'll be posting my card on the Cute As A Button Facebook Group where you are welcome to post up any creations you have made using any Cute As A Button images.

SD Deer Easel Christmas Card

Hi! I'm here to share my Scrappers Delight Design's November Monthly Facebook Challenge. This month's super cute image is called Deer 6. It's such a beautiful Scrappers Delight Design digital stamp. I've made a easel card which I plan on giving to a close friend. I've coloured the deer using Watercolour Pencils. I added homemade texture paste in small blobs to create 3D snow in the background. I've added several die cuts of a doily, snowflake, foliage and flowers. I hope that you like my card.

CDD Space Cadets Cards

Hello I'm back with two space birthday cards. I've used a Craftin Desert Diva's wonderful digital stamp set called Space Cadets (this link includes my Affiliatly link.) I've made two digital scenes using the set and the matching sentiment came with this awesome set.

I've coloured the first card images using mainly Rembrandt Aquarell Pencils and I've simply framed the image. I've added stars with white gel pen to finish of.

This is the first card.


The second card has been coloured using a mix of Distress Inks. I added white gel pen to create stars. Using the same digital stamp set in a different way. I coloured them using different techniques to see which I preferred. I'd say for me I think it was easier to build up the layers using the pencils on the first card.

This is the second card.


I will be sharing my card over at the Craftin Desert Diva's Gallery Facebook Group. I hope they you can pop over to the group.
