Happy World Card Making Day with Mixed Media Christmas Cards

October 07, 2017

Hello everyone, welcome to my blog! I have the honor to be invited to share creativity with other 19 stampers from around the globe over the Simon Says Stamp blog today to celebrate the  World Card Making Day!

Happy World Card Making Day !!!

Although I have been living in Scotland for over 5 years  I'm representing my home country Colombia -South America, and I made cards using the colors of the Colombian flag  (except for the green which was a last minute addition.

For my cards today I used  Swell Christmas stamp setDamask Stencil by Simon Says Stamps.

Check out more information about the event and giveaway below...


To create the backgrounds I applied a  technique called "Gesso Resist" also adding my personal touch.

You can apply this technique using your favorite colours . I mixed same  Distress Ink colors' shades.

To add color to the  Santa image I used  Chameleon Colored Pencils and  ZiG Water-based Markers. I'm also sharing a fun and easy Colored Pencils Resist Technique in my video so don't miss it out!

I embellished using Twine and Nuvo drops.

I also applied colored pencils over the stamped banner to add shadows... it looks quite cool!

Simon Says Stamp is also inviting you to share the projects you have been doing for card making day and to  upload your cards at the InLink  here!!! by 11:59 pm on Saturday, October 14th, and they will choose 10 random winners to receive a $50 gift card from Simon Says Stamp and one random winner to receive a one-year subscription to Scrapbook & Cards Today magazine!
