Hello everyone! I shared the images I'd coloured for these cards on my Instagram account the other day and finally got the chance to make them into cards:
These are 4.25" Square Cards
I pulled out all my Tim Holtz/Stamper's Anonymous Crazy sets, and decided to make 3 different cards since I couldn't decide between the dogs, cats or birds LOL!
I stamped the images onto Strathmore Toned Grey sketch paper (I talk about that in the video) with Versafine Onyx Black ink and coloured them in with my Prismacolor Pencils.
I used the Prismacolor blender pencil to soften and blend the colors - it was my first time using it and I have to say I like it! It's no where near the blending and smoothness you'd get with artist grade odourless mineral spirits but it is a decent option.
I coated the ribbon on the gifts and the white part on the hats with Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle Shimmer and then used the Nuvo Crystal Drops in Gloss white to add some accents.
I finished off the insides with strips of the same patterned papers I used on the fronts and a stamped Merry Christmas from the Crazy Talk stamp set and that was it!
To see how these cards came together check out my video below:

I get asked a lot about where to purchase the supplies I use in my videos and blog posts. I list all the supplies I use at the end of my posts (below) or in the description box directly below my video on YouTube. If the product images have sets of letters below the image it means there's more than one place it can be purchased. SSS = Simon Says Stamp, AZ = Amazon, MFT = My Favourite Things, SnS = Scrap N Stamp (Canada) etc. Compensated affiliate links used when possible at no extra cost to you. Affiliate linking is what keeps my blog and YouTube channel up and running and enables me to work from home with my kids! I appreciate your support more than words can say!
Items marked with an asterisk (*) have been sent by a store/manufacturer (with no obligation on my part to use/review - I only use and share what I personally love). Everything else I purchase myself!
