Christmas Card inspiration with Daniëlle

Hi guys!

How are you doing? I have a quick inspirational post for you today. Every year I create some Christmas cards and this year I used an Art Anthology background for them.

I created the background using three colorations sprays colors, Minx inks and Fairy Dust with a stencil. As you can see I also added some background stamping, a different text for each card. I also added a layer of clear coat sterling through a stencil. Add a cute image and text and your cards are ready! I like my Christmas cards all shiny and sparkly so I use lots of Minx, Fairy Dust and clear coat. I also use pearlescent cardstock but that’s quite hard to photograph.

I hope to inspire you to create a quick little Christmas card yourself!

See you again soon!

Season’s Greeting Card by Farrel Tailor

Hi there AA fans, I am back with another project share and today I decided to create a Christmas card. I have to admit I am not a card maker but I had so much fun creating this one that I may have to create some more.

Season's Greetings Card by Farrel Tailor
  1. To start my card I used an old music sheet from my stash and sprayed all over using Colorations Spray – Warm. Once dry, I then tore to fit my card.

2. I inked the edges of my music sheet with Vintage Photo archival Ink and then stenciled the whole area of the sheet using AA’s Clear Coat Dimensional Medium – Splashed and Art Deco stencil.

3. Next I painted my Green Tara large Poinsetta flower with Gold Metal Effects medium using a paint brush. I applied 2 coats of this for complete coverage.

4. Next I used a paint brush to paint my chipboard flourishes using Minx Shimmering Ink. Make sure you give this a good shake to make sure all the shimmering goodness is throughout the ink.

5. Then all there is needs to be done is adhere everything to the card and I found some Christmas stamps in my stash which I used on some white card stock and used Vintage Photo archival Ink. The backing of the sentiment I used some glitter paper and adhere a piece of ribbon from my stash also.

Christmassy art journal page with Daniëlle

Hi there everyone!

I’m a big holiday season fan and I just love spending and enjoying time with my family during the holidays! So I was in a Christmassy (or messy LOL) mood when I created this art journal page!

Here’s a step by step tutorial so you can create one yourself:

1: I love to start with collage.

2: Next I added modelling paste through the Twilight stencil.

3: Adding color using colorations sprays clover and warm and a little bit of minx ink in color indulgence.

I also added some Fairy Dust in Gilded Gold for extra sparkle.

4: Next I added some scraps of paper.

5: In my last step I added some gold glitter washi tape and a text I like. Part of it I ‘wrote’ with Raider colorations spray and a brush, part are stickers and part are letter stamps.

That’s all, see you next time!
