I shared my cute angel card a few posts back. If you missed that you can head to that post HERE. The day I made that one I coloured a few images from this ‘Christmas Cuties’ stamp set. I was in the mood for colouring! I am not a colourer usually (is that even a word??) but sometimes it’s relaxing just colouring away. That must be why colouring books are such the rage now. Anyway, back to these cards. Firstly I will show you the images as I coloured each one with a different medium. Then I will show you the cards.
The angel (the one shared in a previous post) is coloured with watercolour pencils. The middle elf is coloured with watercoloured pencils. The next elf is coloured with the aquapainter and inkpads.(Don’t look too closely at the colouring!). As you can see though you end up with a different intensity of colour. I will show you the finished cards now and I will show you one coloured with the Stampin’ Write markers too.
The watercoloured pencil elf.
The base card is Mossy Meadow and I have adhered a piece of ‘Home for Christmas’ DSP to the base. The rest of the card was made up of “bits” left lying on my table. The greeting I decided not to use on a previous project. I had heat embossed it in White Embossing Powder. I added some Silver Glimmer Paper behind it. Then I raised up my little elf on this. It was a bit plain at the top so I punched out a scrap of Silver Glimmer Paper with the little Banner punch. I added a silver metal button and some silver cord. I kinda liked this cute card. 🙂
The next one coloured with the Aquapainter and inkpads.
I embossed a piece of white card with the Stylish Stripes Embossing Folder and added this to a Real Red Card base. Then I simply layered a red and a white oval and raised up my little elf with dimensionals. The greeting is cut from silver foil sheets from the ‘Christmas Greetings’ Thinlets. What a happy chappy he is! I thought I would add a little dazzle and add some Dazzling Diamonds to his hat.
Now I will show you another card I made a bit earlier than these cards. This card was made for a recent Stamp A Stack and was inspired by one on Pinterest. On this elf I coloured him with the Markers. The colour is a bit more intense.
That’s all for my little Christmas cuties. Check out these cute images. They are available for $40 wood or $30 clear mount. You can order them directly through me or at my store HERE.
