Christmas cards for Colourcraft

Hi,

last time I made for you video tutorial with different backgrounds for your cards. I used many tools, stamps and not all of you do have those at home. So today I will show you how easily you can create original christmas cards just with Colourcraft paints.

For these two cards I used Aztec Eco Mettalic Lustre Paints. They are so awesome for paper. I hand painted different christmas motives on black card stock. Nothing complicated, just easy brush strokes, I am not artist but I love painting with Aztec paints. My tip is to use always some dark background for Metallic paint, it is complicated for photo shooting but it looks so awesome in reality. You can use any of Mettalic paint even red and purple, I mixed more colours on my first card, second one is just gold in different tones. In reality are cards much nicer and interesting.

For second design I took Brushos and I painted background in christmas colours green and red. I used my favourite Leaf green and Scarlet red and Moss green. I just added sticker with czech setntiment Merry christmas and happy new year. And because I am cardmaker and it is boring to make all the time just square or rectangle cards I decided to make shaped card, but this design looks awesome also on square cards so do not hesitate and try it too. It is so relaxing to paint your own cards and believe me that people will be so honoured to get such lovely card from you. Because they can buy everything but not your art, art is something more, something special and not everybody is gifted to do it but everybody can try it and because you are here at Colourcraft blog and you read my article you know how to make your card.

Three mini cards for Pink and Main

Hi,

sometimes you just need to say thank you for Christmas gift a what is better than mini card? So for today I made three mini card 10x10cm (3,9×3,9 inch). I used Frosty 6×6 Paper Pad and Jolly 6×6 Paper Pad . I cut squares from patterned paper with Stitched Rounded Square Dies.

I stamped Winter Portrait images with Versa fine onyx black ink and coloured with Kuretake Clean Color Real Brush markers. Than I used Winter Portraits Dies.

As a final touch I made bow – Medium Bow Dies - I think that all three sizes of bows are really “MUST HAVE” dies. I will be using them a lot also in my future card because I think that they are just awesome.

Have a nice day

Christmas cards for Cherish the memory

Hi,

I would like to share with you my easy christmas cards which I made for Cherish the memory –  I used awesome Studio Light die cut blocks. This time I used as a no card KRAFT material and I love how it look like together with die cuts. If you do not like to sweet romantic cards use kraft base this will make you card more “natural” looking. These card are very easy I just layered different die cuts. You can play with them in many ways and layer them or cut them in half, colour them. It is just up to your fantasy.
