Welcome back, and we are already into Week 4 of my Christmas Card Series for 2016, can you believe it! And today it’s all about ‘mass production’ and you all know that sometimes it’s a necessary ‘evil’ lol. but with some slight tweaks they can all be ‘the Same but Different’.
There are some great advantages to mass production, the pressure is ‘off’, you don’t have to rethink every card design and while the goodies are out, making multiples of a design certainly is a time saver. Finally, if it means that your friends and family can receive a hand made card from you this Christmas, that is truly a bonus and I will tell you right now that they will appreciate it, it does not matter that the cards are similar or even the same!
See you again real soon! Hugs,
Other Supplies: Annabelle Stamps – Santa’s Star (retired). Crate Paper – Paper Pad – Bundled Up (discontinued but a google search found some on ebay…). Ranger Distress Marker – Squeezed Lemonade. Copics – E000,00,11,31,50 / BG11,13 / Y11,21 / R22 / T0.
I’m so excited to be back this year with my Same but Different Christmas Card Series. If you were here last year then you know that this series can contain many different ideas / themes / styles… well, almost as long as it is the ‘Same but Different’ .
Today I thought I would kick things off with a theme, so lots of different products and every card unique but all with a similar theme and colour palette, all to make creating so much quicker and easier.
Hiya, today I have the second installment in my new Cards 4 Men series and this time I am having fun with a Neat & Tangled set called ‘Woof’, these little fellas totally make me smile and I just know that one day instead of flying this little dog will be swimming… but that’ll be for another video.
Sadly today is my last installment for the 2015 Same but Different Christmas Series and I have saved one of the easiest and funkiest techniques til last, cause we all know it’s getting very close now and lets face facts, if your cards are not made yet you are going to want something real nice and easy… Oh, and elegant and fun to make too!
Back with another 6 Christmas cards and today is all about using the supplies that I have at hand (ie they may no longer be available but still very easy to replicate). And keeping with the retro Christmas theme with some ‘non- Christmassy’ papers and a very cas design which is very easy to make multiples of.
A quick share today with a card that I made earlier in the year for a fabulous friend of mine (but forgot to share til now as I didn’t want to share it before her birthday, and then the memory slipped). Love how these flowers look, stamped with the watery edges. There is also some glitter in that glossy accented 50, but it was hard to catch in the photograph.
Have a happy day!
Other supplies: Inktense pencils – Sun Yellow, Sicilian Yellow, Golden Yellow, Cadmium Orange, Iris Blue. Prismacolor Pencils – Sunburst Yellow. Rhinestones – Pale pink, Mint, Black. Small / Tiny flower punches. Cardstock – teal
How COOL is the inspiration over at the new Pinterest Inspired Challenge, I definitely didn’t want to miss out and you should see the gallery, not to mention the fab DT entries WoW! I decided to film as I created, lots of fussing today, which is typical if I have no definitive plan… that seems to be the drill, but no rush, I’m playing anyway.
