I really thought that last card looked anaemic, so I went back into my (now very messy) Craft Room for an hour and made a few more cards, amongst which were these two.
I used Versafine ink this time – my favourite for blue and white and it embosses so beautifully. I’m much happier with these and especially, although I hate to say it, with the ‘C’ Card. This is the reason why I bought that lovely Hero Arts set because I knew it would make lovely, quick, simple cards.
Couldn’t resist this one, simply because the theme mentions eyes 🙂 It’s not what I had in mind, though, so I may do another one in different colours to get the effect I really wanted.
Here’s my entry for this week’s Less is More challenge – the colour of your eyes. My eyes are blue, so I used two shades of Colorbox Pigment ink – Sky Blue and True Blue, clear embossed – for my first C card of the year. (Apologies for using this word so early – well it is for me)
I’m very traditional at Christmas and like to remember what it’s all about, hence the stamps I’ve used; Stampendous and Hero Arts.
Since this also fits the October Stampendous challenge – and uses one of their stamps – I’m entering it for that. It’s very simple, but that’s what’s asked for.
Staying with the ‘one colour plus white’ theme because it’s easy and quick. I feel guilty for making such simple cards and ATCs – I like to put a bit more work into them, rather than simply stamping and layering, but hey ho! Needs must when time is precious… These have all been clear embossed, then most of them have been cuttlebugged, lol 😉
These are some of my favourite images, so it’s very self indulgent 😀
It’s a nice, easy way of making Christmas cards and especially if you have a lot to make! I love this stamp.
I know it looks red, but it isn’t – it’s rust coloured 😉
More white and one colour Christmas for KCUK.
This month’s KCUK challenge is Christmas in white, with one colour. Here’s mine, using Brilliance Sky Blue.
