Whiff of Joy ~ A Christmas Tag

Happy Wednesday my dears! I am here to share another Christmas tag with you :) Probably my favorite way to use stamps and embellies is to create fun tags. They can go onto a card base, decorate a Project Life or December Daily album, or be used to decorate gifts :)

The image was colored with Copics and then masked so that I could airbrush the background on. I used creams, greens and reds to create this look. Afterwards, to mute the colors a wee bit, I spritzed on some Studio Calico Mr Huey mist in white. I added stickles, Wink of Stella in clear and even added some Liquid  Applique to the marshmallows!

Stamp and Create ~ Christmas Card

Happy Monday morning! Hope your week is off to a great start! I have a ton of things on my to do list today!

I am sharing my latest Christmas creation with you today. As soon as I saw this image, I knew that I would have to have it! I adore the huge bouquet of poinsettias that Tilda is holding. It looks so pretty!

The image is named Sparkle Poinsettia from Magnolia's Waiting for Christmas collection. I colored her with my usual copics and then added the dots with a Sharpie poster paint pen. Then I went over them with a Wink of Stella Brush pen in gold. It worked really well. I also went over Tilda’s dress with a Wink of Stella brush pen, but this one was clear. I adds just the right amount of sparkle. I darkened up her eyes with a black Wink of Stella pen and added white dots with my Sharpie poster paint pen. You can see it in the next photo. I created a simple 4x6 card using left over paper scraps, some ribbon and to balance out the left side of the card, I used the Cozy Big Snowflake DooHickey.

Winter Wryn Card and Video

Happy Friday! Yesterday I spoke about Winter coming and today, as I type, there are snowflakes fluttering down from the sky :) I have a card and a video to share with you today.

I had a great response with my Halloween Card series and was asked to do something similar with a Christmas theme. I am going to do my best to create a series but I won’t set myself a set number. This first one shares how I create masks for creating backgrounds when using digital images and also shows you the copic coloration. I have added all the numbers used right in the video.

I recently purchased a couple of Tiddly Inks digital images. They are so very sweet. This first one in called Winter Wryn.

What I really enjoy about digital images is how I can size them perfectly for whatever project I am creating. I knew that I wanted to create a simple card without too much fuss and create a starry background.

One of the things I really enjoy with digital images is that I can size them perfectly for whatever project I am creating. I knew that I wanted a relatively simply layout with a wonderful starry background behind the image.

Here is the video showing you the coloration with copics as well as the creation of the background. Enjoy :)

Winter’s Coming Home….

Happy Thursday! There is a definite iciness to the wind these days and I know that Winter is coming home. It isn’t a bad thing. Living in Canada, I welcome the changing of the seasons and the different rituals associated with beginning and ending of each one. Most of all, with the kids growing up so quickly, I cherish the memories of the passing seasons. So, all this to say that I have an autumn themed card that needs to be shared today (before it is too late).

DSC_8072 copy

A wee bit different from my usual style, but I am very happy with the way this one turned out. I stamped the leaves with Versamark onto water-color paper and heat embossed them using white powder. Then, I pulled out m Twinkling H20s and played with various colors until I was happy with coloring. I added a very simple sentiment and cut it to fit on an A2 card. Done.


Whiff of Joy is having a Pre-Christmas sale:

Stamp and Create ~ Christmas Tilda

Happy Monday my dears! I received my new Magnolia Winter Wishes stamps last week and I just had to play with them right away.  I have taken to creating these 4x6” scenes. Whether this will end up in my Project Life, December Daily or onto a card, I don’t know at the moment but I like have all my options open!

DSC_8209 copy

After stamping and coloring the image, I masked it and used a Hero Arts tree image to create a soft background. I stamped my sentiment (PTI)  in Versamark black ink. Then I added embossed snowflakes and stars with white and silver powders respectively. The last thing I added was a wee bit of stickles underneath her feet and my little creation was finished.

I am entering this in the Totally Tilda challenge. The theme is Tilda with a Christmas Tree.

There is a fantastic sale on right now over at Stamp and Create!

I used Whimsy Stamps' Friendship is the Greatest Gift which is part of their Wee Stamp Collection. So cute!

DSC_8182 copy

I went with very vibrant colors for this image and added stickles and sponging and even some white spray mist to create the background effect. I added two different ribbons and some round embellies. The sentiment is an older one from PTI.

That is it for me today. I received my new Magnolia stamps from Stamp & Create today. I can’t wait to start playing. I have received emails about creating a Holiday Card series and I am hoping to start filming for that soon!

Mini-Halloween Card Series #6 Witching Hour

Happy Wednesday my lovelies! Here is the final video and card in my series! I hope you enjoyed it. Please let me know if I should do more series like this :)

DSC_8096 copy

In this final card, I teamed up one of my favorite La-La Land Craft stamp dies with the ghost and the cat from a Lawn Fawn stamp set.

Finding some old patterned paper with the clocks was actually the starting off point for this card. I made sure to set the time just before midnight…

Of course, I have a close up and alternate view for you showing how the images are slightly raised with the foam adhesive.
