I've been busy crafting up a storm and I'm going to post two cards today for two different challenges before I lose track of deadlines and miss them. You don't ever do that, do you? ;)
First up is Muse Christmas Visions
. I haven't played with them in a while but Chriss's card was so cute and I had a stamp that wanted to play along.
The snowman and sentiment are from Inky Antics colored with Intense pencils, something else I haven't used in a while. A little Spectrum Noir glitter pen was essential on the star, tinsel and fur part of the hat. I wish my photography was better so you could see it.
The next card is for CAS(E) This Sketch
and I'm not crazy about it but it is what it is.
I tried a non-traditional color scheme with my W & W holiday trimmings stamps. Guess why there's a strip of aqua mist paper across the top. Yup, I goofed on my HLS sentiment and this was the only way I could think to fix it. Actually I think it adds a little dimension so I'm okay with it.
I have quite a stack of Christmas cards already and I'm not sure when I made them unless it was last December after I had already sent out my cards. I hope you've gotten a good start on yours.
Love them both - two very different-feeling Christmas cards! love the whimsy of your snowman and the graphic-ness of your CTS design! So glad you joined us at MCV this week, Bobby!ReplyDelete
Your snowman card is so cute! A perfect take on the Muse card. And I quite like the bright look and non-traditional colours of your CTS card.ReplyDelete
Super sweet cards, Bobby! I love your pretty take on the sketch!ReplyDelete
These are both super cute Bobby! Love that sweet snowman in his little coat!ReplyDelete
Um, yeah, I do that all the time! I almost missed the MCV challenge just now! I love your adorable take a Chriss's card, Bobby, and I think you should embrace your CASlicious second card! I think it's fabulous in its simplicity!! Hugs, DarnellReplyDelete
I really like all 3 that you have here. I too love non traditional Christmas colors.ReplyDelete
ALL the time!! Missing, and 'goofing' ... LOve that little snowman, Bobby - beautifully colored, too! Not a soul would see that your darling, non-traditionally colored CTS card wasn't just as you intended it! Thanks for playing!!!ReplyDelete
Two adorable cards Bobby. Love the sweet snowman ... brings a smile to my face. :) And love the second card. I think the banner sentiment is awesome ... you're right it adds some dimension. Great colour combo --- fun!!ReplyDelete
I do miss challenges .. I'm sure everyone does at some point. We need to have an assistant to keep track of deadlines for us. :) xx
Two adorable cards, Bobby. Your snowman card is a perfect interpretation of Chriss' card. Love your clean and graphic card for CTS.ReplyDelete
Love them both. Your snowman is adorable, and I really like the simplicity of your second card.ReplyDelete
Two simply fabulous cards Bobby...love your sweet little snowman and your second card is so festive!ReplyDelete
Precious cards, Bobby!ReplyDelete
Goofing and messing up? Only all the time! Your cards here are delightful! How darling the sweet snowman, ready to do some decorating! And your row of trees are charming; the 'design innovation' with aqua strip is perfect!ReplyDelete
That little snowman is adorable, Bobby ... just looking at how wonderfully detailed and cute he is has me smiling! Cool, crisp and fabulously contemporary Christmas card ... what a fantastic graphic look ... the dimension on the sentiment strip is perfect ... happy accidents are fun aren't they (maybe not at the time, but when they're fixed they are!!). Hugs, Anita :)ReplyDelete
