One Christmas Card and a Card with Kanu

I like to share with you today my christmas card. I just  bought this Hero Arts Clear stamp and cant stand to use it. Also I only colored with two different green colors from Akashiya SAI. I stamped the Background with many snowflakes also from Hero Arts. Embossed it with White embossing powder.

The sentiment (Merry Christmas) is PTI.

Challenges for my first card are:

Weekly Christmas Card Challenge #42: Anything Goes

Christmas Card All Year Long: Shabby Chic and/or Monochromatic

CHNC Challenge Extra for September: Anything Goes

Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge #81: Technique (Stamping and embossing with white embossing powder and coloring with watercolor marker)

Make My Monday #31: No Patterned Paper 

The Pencil Case Week 28: Anthing Goes 

Imagine That Digi Stamp: Creative Playground: Easy As 1, 2, 3 (I used 1 Color monochrome, 2 Layer in the middle and 3 stamps : the sentiment, the car and tree stamp and the snowflake stamp)


I also made this card, my boss ordered this card for a friend who like to make a sport with Kanu. Here is what I made for him:

I am sorry with the quality of the Photo cause it was already 11:00 PM. I used the Digi Images I bought from Etsy and colored with Akashiya SAI. I used also the embossing folder Woodgrain and choose the color like challenge at Colour Q. The sentiment is Hero Arts.

Challenge for my second card are:

Freshly Made Sketches #256:  


ColourQ #361:

  8. Both lovely cards. The first image is modern and the second one has such charm to it. I like it's rustic appeal.

  10. Fun new stamp set! A great family Christmas card. Or for a man, the sentiment gives your card a masculine feel, but it works for anyone really. A completely green card I try to avoid, I love the color, but hard to photograph.
    The second card is definitely very masculine. I like that you used woodgrain embossed paper, enhances the whole feel of nature and outdoors, a great design for the color scheme.

  11. Lovely card. Great image with the Christmas tree on top! Thanks for playing along with us for our Technique Challenge at Holly Jolly. Hope to see you again soon. Good luck.
