Christmas Card Challenge 2017

Hi guys!

Another day. Another card based on this year’s Christmas Card Challenge with my friend, Ashley!

Meet today’s card.

A handmade card by Teri // terisplace.wordpress.com

I once again had fun playing with some Mama Elephant stamps. The reindeer is from their Reindeer Games stamp set. It’s just adorable.

To make the lead reindeer different (basically, like Rudolph and all), I colored his nose in with red ink and added a teeny tiny touch of glitter glue on top.  I stung them together with the help of some good old twine.

The words and the stamped stars are from Holly Jolly by Julie Ebersole for Ellen Hutson. Such a fun stamp set.

Created the background for this card once again with the help of the Cloud stencil from My Favorite Things. Such a great tool to use for creating cute and quick backgrounds. Take the stencil. Sponge on a little ink. Move the stencil. Sponge a little more ink. Repeat these steps over and over until you’ve added color to an entire panel of cardstock.

Super fun… and super cool looking.

Alright! That’s it for today. Be sure to swing by Ashley’s blog to see what she’s cooked up for today.

 

Today’s cards (11-15)

Hi guys!

Back again with a couple more cards to share with you.

Was feeling Fall’ish when I put these guys together.

The bulk of the work in these cards was coloring in the leaves and acorns with markers. All were stamped with the Autumn Acorns stamp set and cut with the coordinating dies from Ellen Hutson.

I used Copic markers to do the dirty… err… coloring… work. I never thought I would say I’m a marker using kind of girl but I do quite enjoy using them these days. Of course, colored pencils + Gamsol ranks right up there too but I haven’t done awhile, but I still love the look.

Once again, I whipped out my Glossy Accents and Nuvo drops to add a little pop to the card. Just applying a few drops of each one adds a nice bit of pop.

Alrighty, that’s all I have, guys. Be back later, friends.

Thanks for stopping by!

Today’s cards (11-12)

Hi guys!

A few more cards to share with you today.

Clean and quick, but fun. Again. All similar. All the result of my recent Christmas card binge.

So meet today’s cards.

A handmade card by Teri // terisplace.wordpress.com

I once again used the Tis the Season set and coordinating dies from Ellen Hutson’s Essentials by Ellen line. I also used the Holly Jolly set to add the little stars.

Once again, went with a soft color combo. Sometimes, it’s just fun to do something you don’t normally do. I don’t often use soft color combos.

Added a little shading under the cars by taking a rag, picking up a small amount of black ink on it and then rubbing into onto the cards. I like how it grounds the cars. It’s nice to not have the cards look like they are floating.

Anyhooooo, that’s all I have for you today. Be back again later, gators. See you soon!

 

 

Today’s card (11-9)

Hi guys!

Another day. Another card to share.

A handmade card by Teri // terisplace.wordpress.com

Once again, I had some fun with the Tis the Season set from Ellen Hutson. Used the coordinating dies too Again, I think the set might be retired as I can’t find it on the website, but there’s lots of other fun sets to check out so I’m linking to Essentials by Ellen  for you. Because… enabler. Yep. That’s me. 😉

I stamped, die-cut and colored in the Santa three times. Hard to tell but I added a little texture to his hat with some Nuvo drops.

I sponged some ink onto the card, plopped the Santas down and added a few stamped sentiments. Then I took my trusty dusty black pen and drew the arrows. I feel like … no matter what your drawing skills are… anyone can do a kick booty freehand arrow.

Now I didn’t take a picture of the inside of the card so you are just going to have to trust me that I stamped inside. With what, you ask? Well, friends… I stamped “happy holidays” inside it. Santa may know, but he’s got your back. 😉

Alright. That’s all I have for you. Be back again later, friends.

Thanks, as always, for stopping by.

 

Today’s cards (11-8)

Hi guys!

We meet again!

I’ve been on a Christmas card binge of sorts so I’ve got a little couple cards to share with you today. This all started because I pulled out some stamps I’ve had for awhile and just wanted to play with them again.

So meet today’s cards.

A handmade card by Teri // terisplace.wordpress.com

Ta-da!

Made these guys by pairing together the Otterly Awesome stamp set with the Tis the Season stamp set (both from Ellen Hutson). The Tis the Season set might retired as I’m not finding it on Ellen’s website as I write this, but I still dig it. I mean, dude, it’s super cute.

But let’s talk about the cards. Otters have Christmas sweaters, right? Wink. Or they totally need them. I mean, hello, CUTE!

A handmade card by Teri // terisplace.wordpress.com

I put most of my time into these cards by coloring in the sweaters and otters. The blue in the background is just ink sponged in circle. To add to the water feel, I added a few drops of Glossy Accents to mix. Easy peasy. Super easy.

Alrighty! That’s all I have today. Be back later, gators.

Thanks for stopping by. You’re “otterly” awesome. 😉

 

Today’s card (6-4)

Hey guys!

Managed to sneak in a little bit more fun time this weekend. The end result? This card right here.

A handmade card by Teri // terisplace.wordpress.com

Ta-da!

The otter, fish and words are all from Julie’s Otterly Awesome stamp set from Ellen Hutson. Must say that it is pretty darn otterly awesome. 🙂 The otter and fish were cut with the coordinating dies. The fact that the otters’ little paws in the stamp set can hold things when cut with the dies just plain slays me. I just plain love that.

Created the blue watery background by slapping some washi tape along the sides of a piece of watercolor paper and then brushing on some blue watercolors. Then I liberally splashed dots of water on top and then took my heat gun to it to dry it all up. I think the end result looks like water. Well, I think.

Alright, kids. This is all I have for now for you. I’ll be back again later. Thanks, as always, for stopping by. You are pretty darn great!
