Christmas Cards – 001 to 006

Thank you for coming over to have a look at my blog

Christmas Cards

Hi and welcome to my blog (or welcome back if you’ve visited before).  Thank you so much for poping over for a look, and a big thank you to those regular visitors who have left such kind comments on my various posts of late.  I realy do appreciate you taking the time to do so.

Well … I’ve officially started my Christmas Card Making!

Just a few at a time in small batches, but hopefully it will mean I’ll have ones ready to sell at the chapel, etc., in a couple of months time (assuming the COVID-19 virus is got under control and lockdown eases so that we can return to worship in the autumn).  I suppose I’ll have to try selling some online or over the phone to friends and family if the lockdown continues.

The first ones I’ve made have been quick and easy ones made using components from the latest Hunkydory Christmas Collection, and, as I was so late doing my cards last year and didn’t use up all my stash, I have quite a few bits added from last year’s Hunkydory Christmas Collection as well.  As the cards became all jumbled up when I was putting them into a storage box I’m not quite sure which year’s collection the cards I’ve got to show you in the first few posts have been made from.

What I Did

For this first batch of cards I simply went through the collection picking out matching background cardstock and inserts that went with the various die-cut toppers that were in the kit.

Each sheet of background cardstock was scored and folded in half.

I wanted to keep these first ones very simple, with very little dimension, so I only used glue, fingerlift tape, or 1mm deep foam tape to do the attaching of toppers and greetings banners where these were used.  This way I hope that all these cards will go through the Royal Mail on a Standard Letter stamp to save on postage.  I’ve got a “letter ruler” to check each card in it’s envelope so that I can be sure before I either post myself, or to tell anybody who buys the cards.  Peel-offs were used on some of the cards instead of banners.

I set up a greeting “Nadolig Llawen A Blwyddyn Newydd Dda” (The Welsh equivelent of Merry Christmas and a Happy New year, though not a direct translation) in MS Publisher on my laptop.  This greeting was printed onto the matching inserts before they were trimmed a bit and stuck inside each card.

I then use my stamping platform to stamp my details on the back of each card.

Note – Although the We R Memory Keepers “The Works” bit of equipment has the ability to cut, score and stamp, when I’m batch makeing I don’t like swapping the plate up and down for scoreing and cutting, or adding the stamping platform every time I want to stamp the details, so I do use separate bits of equipment for each job.

What I Used
Finished Cards

I’ve decided to number the Christmas Cards I’m makeing this year in my blog posts, going on from one post to the next.  That way I’ll know exactly how many cards I’ll have made by the end.

Giveaway Winning And Some Crafting

Thank you for coming over to have a look at my blog

Giveaway Winning and Crafting

Hi and welcome to my blog (or welcome back if you’ve visited before).

Giveaway

Pete Simpson of Artisan Design UK has been doing daily Giveaways on his page, as well as Facebook Live demonstrations, more or less continuously since the lockdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic started.  He has only had a very few days off in all these weeks.

While he has been giving away some Artisan Design items, and doing a clearout of some of his own unused stash, many others have generously donated to his giveaways.  All very generous people who have done a little bit to give to the crafting community.

One week I won the Saturday Weekend Wow! giveaway.  These giveaways have been a little larger than the giveaways of other days.

This is what I got.

Opened box.

Spread out a little bit.

Thank you very much Pete for running the giveaways, and a thank you to all the others who have donated items to be included in the giveaways.

Crafting

Having won so many varied items in Pete‘s Weekend Wow Giveaway I just had to have a play and see what I could come up with.  So many ideas, but I had to choose what to start off with.

What I Did

For my first make I used 2 spray inks, two glitter frames, and two stamps from the giveaway.  Having scored and folded in half one A4 sheet of cardstock I used a makeup brush to apply purple ink to one of the stamps, putting it onto a stamping platform and stamping around the outside of the card I’d made, moving the stamp or the card before each stamp to give a pattern around.  I then used another makeup brush to add some yellow around the outside edge of the card.

Makeup brushes were again used to apply yellow to a sheet of cardstock, in various depths of colour, spraying a few splats on for texture after finishing.  Another piece of cardstock had purple ink added with a makeup brush to give a very deep colour.

A panel was cut from the yellow cardstock darkest area, and a slightly larger mat to go behind it was cut from the purple.  I then stuck the two gliter frames onto lighter areas of the cardstock coloured in yellow, as well as stamping a butterfly onto a darker area using the purple ink, again using a makeup brush to apply.  The circular framed panels and the butterfly were then cut out to the edge with scissors.

The butterfly was shaped and glue attached only to the body to stick it to the largest circle.

I then used a die cutting machine to cut flowers and foliage from the same cardstock I’d used for everything else on this card, shaping with my fingers and shading centres and pettal edges with the same two colours of ink.

Fingerlift tape, foam tape, and bookbinding glue were used to attach everything together.

I finished off by adding a “Penblwydd Hapus” peeloff greeting and using a fineliner pen to add a bit of a shaddow around lower right side of lettering.

What I Used
The Finished Makes

I’ll be back with another card I made the same time as this in a future blog post before long.

Cards As Gifts – 7th Batch

As I said in my 1st post of these series – here – I can’t do anything much to help anybody during this COVID-19 pandemic, but I did decide to help out a few friends and family members by makeing some cards and sending random ones a small pack of cards so that they had something in the house to send to people while they could not go out to shop for cards or go and visit people in person to give them birthday good wishes.

I also explained why I chose the theme I did for the cards I’m gifting.

This, angled, view shows that, although quite simple cards, I have used foam tape to give a little dimension to them, without makeing them too dimensional to go in an ordinary C5 envelope.

Butterfly Card

Butterfly Birthday Card

Hi and welcome to my blog (or welcome back if you’ve visited before).

For the card I have got to show you today I used two things I haven’t used before.  A new butterfly stamp from Artisan Designs UK that I just got, and some explosion powders from Pretty Gets Gritty that I’ve had for a few weeks but hadn’t used previously.

What I Did

I wet a sheet of 300gsm white cardstock and sprinked a bit from four or five different pots of explosion powsers on it and watched as they moved in the water to create an interesting background.  I then left this to dry naturally overnight.

I stamped out the butterfly stamp and used the explosion powders with a water brush to colour it in.  It was then cut out and left to dry.

I took a sheet of hammered cardstock, scored it, folded it, and used a punch to round the corners.

I took the background I’d created and cut out a piece of a suitable size for my card.  I also cut out a bit of glitter card a little bigger.  Both these layers had their corners rounded.

Fingerlift tape was used to attach the glitter card to the base card.  Glue gel was used to attach the background panel to the glitter card.  I then shaped the butterfly and again used glue gel to attach this.  I finished off with a “Penblwydd Hapus” peeloff (Welsh for Happy Birthday).

Inside is an insert with the same greeting printed on it before attaching with fingerlift tape.

What I Used
The Finished Card

I have started on my Christmas Cards, as well as cards for an order I’ve had, so expect a few more posts over the next couple of weeks.

Welsh Birthday Card

Carden Penblwydd Hapus
A Welsh Birthday Card

Hi and welcome to my blog (or welcome back if you’ve visited before).

In my last blog post – here – I told you that I’d stamped out a lot of Artisan Design floral stamps, but only ended up using one flower and one leaf on my simple sympathy card.

For the project I’ve got to show you today I’ve coloured up another of the stamped images and made a card with it.

What I Did

I picked an image that had been stamped in green ink and coloured it in using alcohol markers. I then cut this out and shaped it a bit so the leaves on either side were no longer flat.

I took a sheet of cream hammered cardstock, scored, folded it in half, and used a punch to round the corners.

I took a sheet of gold glitter card and a sheet of red perleasent cardstock, cut them to size I required and also rounded the corners.

I attached the glitter card to the base card using fingerlift tape.

I took a topper from a kit I had bought and used foam tape to attach this to the pearlescent cardstock before using glue gel to attach the coloured flower to the front.

I then used glue gel to attach the matted image to the glitter card layer.

I finished off with a Penblwydd Hapus (Welsh for Happy Birthday) greeting.

I printed off the same greeting onto white paper, trimmed, scored and folded, and attached inside as an insert using fingerlift tape.

What I Used
The Finished Card

The front view of the card – with pearlescent cardstock, glitter cardstock and a topper with a sheen, the colours are not completely true in these photographs, especially this front view one.

I do think you can get a better idea of the colours from the various angles I’ve taken the photographs of the card from, though none look exactly the same colours as the card throughout.

.

I have started on my Christmas Cards, as well as cards for an order I’ve had, so expect a few more posts over the next couple of weeks.

Creating An Inked Card + Video

Thank you for coming over to have a look at my blog

A Card From Inked Backgrounds inc. Video Of It Being Made

Hi and welcome to my blog (or welcome back if you’ve visited before).

YouTube Video

Today I am going to show you how I made a card by starting off with two of the backgrounds I made during my inking session mid February. (You can see the blog post about creating the backgrounds – Here!, inluding video links.)

Starting off with these –

  

I stamped giraffe and a tree onto one, added lines for the horizon and to ground the silhouettes, used what ink there was left on my applicator to darken the area towards to top right, before matting image onto black and then onto the other blended background.  Then stuck the card onto a Black base card.

Today’s videos showing the cards being made :

You can see the English Video – Here!

What I Used

These are what I used in my play session:

Pieces Created

This is the card I created.

I decided not to put a greeting on the outside, only inside.

.

I have several bits of different crafting on the go at the moment, so keep an eye out for them over the next few weeks.

More Birthday Cards For Family Members

Thank you for clicking over to have a look at my blog

 More Welsh Birthday Cards For Family Members

I’ve written before about several family members having birthdays in January and February.

This time I have cards I made for my mother and myself to give to two different family members.

Quick, simple, cards this time with not a lot of matting or layering, or any fancy embelishments.  The first is for a male, the other two for a female.

I used toppers from the same set of Polyanna Pickering wildlife images for all three cards, and also used corresponding backing papers.  The base card in each case is a scored and folded A4 sheet of Adorable Scorable cardstock.  I used fingerlift tape and 2mm deep, double sided, foam tape  to stick the pieces together.  I used a 0.5 fineliner pen to write the greeting on some of the cards.  All have Penblwydd Hapus Iawn (Welsh for a Very Happy Birthday) inside.

Card 1

Card 2

Card 3

.I’m currently working on a few projects – very slowly – but still working on them.  So keep an eye for more finished items, with videos, as well as Works In Progress, over the next few weeks.

Birthday Cards For Youngest Nephews

Thank you for clicking over to have a look at my blog

Welsh Birthday Cards For Boys

I’m sure I’ve told you before that several family members have their birthdays in the first couple of months of the year.  Well today it’s time for me to show you some Welsh birthday cards I made for my mother to give my two youngest nephews.

If I tell you that one loves steam engines and old fashioned machinery, and also tell you that they have horses on their farm, it’s quite obvious why I chose the particular images I did for the cards.

This first one is made using an image from one of the Hunkydory “Little Book of …”  not quite sure which little book it was though. This was matted onto a sheet of Hunkydory miricard that was pre-cut to fit. I used a pre-foiled and scored Kanban base card.

This is another photo of the same card taken at an angle to show that the matted image is raised, which I did by using 2mm deep, double sided, foam tape rather than fingerlift tape.

This image for this second card also came from a Hunkydory “Little Book of …”.  I think it could have been the same book that the previous image came from and that it was one of the male themed books.  It was also matted and raised before putting onto the same type of foiled base card as the first one.

.

I’ve got several more cards to make for the family, so keep an eye out for them, along with some other crafting projects I’m working on.
