Christmas 10

The 10th day of class was interactive cards. I love interactive cards. However, I’m doing landscape cards this year, so just went with a shaker. Granted the sentiment swings inside, which adds a bit of fun.

Had a lot of fun designing this one.

Christmas 9

I was trying to catch up today as this week is another busy one. And, I’m not quite done with Christmas cards for this year.

Todays homework was just to use snowflakes. Ha! Most of the foiling I did was snowflakes, so I was ready.

You can see the foil on these. Did the original foiling, then used what was left for the other. Frustrating part of the card on the right was wanting to surround my piece with silver glitter washi tape. It had to be glued down. Good grief! Anyway, I like how they turned out.

Christmas 8

Okay, class day 8 was foiling. Pulled out my laminator and used Deco foil and a patterned toner paper for this.

I couldn’t throw away the leftover foil, so used some double sided adhesive to adhere it to a piece of card stock, added some red foil to the “holes”, then inked in red over the whole thing. Dye ink wipes right off of foil. The ink covers any areas where the foil didn’t stick.

I did ink the first piece that was foiled, too. The Lumberjack Plaid distress ink is a beautiful red. I’m not much of a fan of the color red, but this one is great.

Christmas Bonus

Last Saturday, there was a bonus day of Online Card Classes Holiday Workshop 2022 class on using your leftovers. It was more about using the die cut leftovers, but I used the ink blending panel that went awry. Chopped it up and made 🎁 out of it.

At the CKC in September, I found a new company that I love. Creek Bank Creations. The sentiment on this is from one of their sets. I actually used one of their stencils and some gold pigment ink to have gold rays coming out from behind Jesus. You can see them as you tip the card in the light, but not much in the picture.

I really recommend you check Creek Bank Creations out. They have a lot of meaningful sentiments and fun products.

Thank you for spending some of your valuable time with me today. As today is Veterans Day, I want to give a shout of thanks to the amazing men and women that have and do protect us and our freedom. Thank you so very much. Without you, we wouldn’t have our country, much less our freedom to choose and do. You risk your lives to protect us. Thank you.

Christmas 5

The challenge for day 5 was to use scraps. So, I used another of the background pieces made earlier in the week and some scraps of turquoise and silver papers to make the flower and sentiment.

I quite like this one, though it’s a bit thick to mail.

Thank you for spending some of your valuable time with me today. I am thankful that God gave me the time and ability to make this and to share it with you.

Christmas 4

This was a couple of days ago, but I’ve been busy. The challenge was ink blending. It may not look like it, but there is ink blending within each of the candles.

A friend asked me to make a birthday card for her daughter, so instead of a big holiday, this is a personal holiday card.

Had fun making this, though the first attempt was a failure. You may see pieces of it in another challenge, later.

Thank you for spending some of your valuable time with me today. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Christmas 3

Fast backgrounds do not make for fast cards. The backgrounds in today’s class were great, but not fast, you just wind up with a lot of them.

I went with alcohol ink backgrounds as I didn’t have much time. They aren’t as planned, but as weird as the colors are for Christmas, this was my favorite.

Orange isn’t typical, but I like it. Die cutting this glitter card stock was not easy. The orange shimmer sheet was much better.

Christmas 2

Day 2 of the Online Card Classes Holiday Card Class 2022 was making your own plaid and using it.

That did not go according to plan. But, added some silver ink along some of the lines and it worked.

Had fun with this one. I have another plaid piece left that I added green and red lines to that I have the start of an idea for.
