Today I’m making some Quick Elegant Christmas cards. I also want to explain little about the different cards stocks that’s available, helping us to make the cards fast and nice 🙂 If you’re like me, I like to make as many nice cards as possible without spending too much time on them and sometimes the card stocks that you have makes this task a little easier. I hope this was helpful for your Holiday cards. Thank you so much for stopping by and see you guys soon 🙂
Today I’m sharing this simple, easy to make One layered card with matching envelopes for gift giving. You can easily mass produce this design with different color combinations for a gift set. That’s what I plan to do with them 🙂 I am using the same Hero Arts stamp set, I’ve used last week but with different combinations of flowers. These type of mix and match or layering stamps are great for this technique because of all the different components. I’ve used 3 stamps along with a sentiment for this card but you can mix and match different stamps to create a different look. I’m using the Ranger’s dye ink pads today because of their vibrant colors. If you want to create more subtle look, you may want to stamp it off and use the second generation stamping or use a softer ink pads. I like the vibrancy of these colors so I’m happy with the look I got. I hope you like this video and thank you so much for stopping by.

Today I have another CAS (Clean and Simple) card for you using PaperTemptress card stocks. I have this image that I colored using the Heavenly White 120#, which I have a tutorial for. I’ll leave the link below if you want to check it out. I mentioned before that this card stock does not bleed though the back, so it’s perfect for those one layered cards, using your alcohol markers. I kept this card pretty simple, because I wanted to use the Pink Ice Parchment paper. I didn’t want to cover up too much of the card stock, since it has this unique design and color to it. I back it with the Hot fudge card stock, I love the pink and the fudge. I’m also using the Ski blue stripe vellum to emboss my sentiment. I thought the light blue matched perfectly with this color combination. I stamped the sentiment out with versa fine onyx, so I can emboss it using my clear embossing powder. This vellum has a great weight to it, so it didn’t even warp as I was heating up the sentiment. I added some details with some sequins, black belly roll pen and my Signo white gel pen. Pretty simple but I really liked how it turned out. I hope you enjoyed this card and there’s still a GIVEAWAY going on right now, so scroll down to check that out. I may be choosing 1 additional winner, since Patricia from PaperTemptress was generous enough to donate 2 paper packs. Yay!! More the prize the better, right?

Today is my very first DT project for Paper Temptress and I’m super excited and a little nervous at the same time. I’ll be posting for Paper Temptress every other Monday so please check back often to see all the projects. I’ve made a very Clean and Simple card to showcase the texture and shimmer, on these card stocks. I’m using the Coral Mica Metallic and Cordovan Leather card stocks today. The shimmer that this card stock gives is truly amazing and the leather like card stock is something I’ve never seen before. I used a inlayed die technique today to make this simple card. I have a full tutorial up above if you want to see a step by step on how I made this card. Also, please check out the paper temptress blog for more inspirations from the Fantastic DT members.

Today I’m making a very Clean and Simple DT Card for Tupelo Designs LLC using this Bird Crazy stamp set and some Copic Markers. I’m Super excited to share with you guys that Tupelo Designs LLC is now carrying Copic markers!! Yay!! I decided to make this card really simple because I wanted to go over some things regarding Copic Markers. You can get a full step by step on how I made this card by watching the video link up above.
I wanted to go over some general information regarding these markers that might be handy to know. First off, you can keep track of your copic markers by downloading a Free Color chart from copicmarker.com and I’ll leave a link below or you can even purchase this Hex Chart from Sandy Allnock’s website for several dollars, which is a handy tool as well. She designed this chart to help us have an easier time finding the right color combinations that go well together and I think this chart is very helpful. The copic markers have a different numbering system that you should know in order to choose the right combinations. You can also get more detail information in this on the copic website as well.
These markers are alcohol base markers and with alcohol based markers, it’s very important to use the right ink that’s compatible with alcohol markers. The most popular ink pad to use with these are Momento Tuxedo black ink or My Favorite Things Hybrid Licorice Black ink. My personal favorite is the My favorite things Hybrid ink but it’s personal preference. Choosing the right paper also makes a huge difference on how they blend. It’s best to use a specialty card stock such as Neenah Solar White or Spectrum Noir card stock just to name a few. These card stocks have a slick surface, which will help with the markers to sit on top of the paper longer for a better blend.
For todays card, I decided to use this Bird Crazy stamp set from stampers anonymous. I think these birds have the funniest expressions and each bird has their own personality which I love. I stamped it out using My favorite things black licorice hybrid ink on Neenah solar white card stock and chose out several colors to color the birds. I made this bird very colorful since this was a very simple card. I found this very funny sentiment to go along with these birds from the Dylusions stamp set from my stash. To see a full step by step on how I made this card, please watch the video up above or head on over to my youtube channel. For all the supplies I used on this card will be in the description below. I thank you guys so much for stopping by and please subscribe and follow for more inspirations and ideas. I’m super excited that Tupelo Designs LLC is carrying copic markers and I’ll be sharing more products using these markers in the future. Thank you so much and I hope to see you back next time.
