Series: The Daily Marker Art Card #26 I’ve reached that point in the Daily Marker 30 Day Challenge where the colour-picking bit of my brain is starting to struggle; I am trying hard to avoid falling back on standard colour choices, especially for critters. My first instinct for this was to do a ginger kitty,… Continue reading Horace & Boo
Series: The Daily Marker Art Card #14 There are ten Polkadoodles "darling buds" flower girls in total and I picked up the complete set when they came out. Of course, buying them and actually colouring them are two very different things and I had only actually coloured one of them before making this art card.… Continue reading Daffodil girl
This next batch of cards is 100% inspired by Emma over at Puddleside Musings — I was especially taken by the sunburst design she created in Making Simple Cards from Scraps. I don't have a lot of Christmassy paper scraps, but I do have whole pads of paper which really need using 🙂 Now, I… Continue reading Patterned paper Christmas
I picked up this clear stamp in the run-up to last Christmas, but I never got around to using it. I rarely buy "scene" stamps — I generally prefer to build my own scenes — but I thought this was cute. The card layout is simple: a layer of matching patterned paper, a strip of… Continue reading Winnie’s Christmas wreath
And this is my absolute favourite of all the Christmas cards I've made so far this year. Another thing that nearly went in the bin but ended up working out really nicely. I thought I'd have a go at doing a snowman on kraft card, after all, white stands out on kraft, whereas on white… Continue reading Snowman on kraft
This is another card made out of the bits left over from creating the small batches of Christmas cards (1, 2, 3, 4). The stencilled panel was originally going to be layered with the smaller panel on the holly flourish card, but I wasn't happy with how that was looking. Instead, I used it as… Continue reading Wooden snowflakes
For the first one of these I made, I stamped the tree as a silhouette in black. Now, I quite like that one, but my other half declared it to be "creepy and deserving of a ghost story", so I stamped the rest in green. Unfortunately, the colour change decision was made after I had… Continue reading Single Christmas tree
This was one of the last of the Christmas cards I made in August and it was based off the first element I made when I was playing around with ideas for the batches of cards. I'd inked and stencilled a sheet of card with holly and die-cut a couple of postage-edged panels. But I… Continue reading Holly flourish
