Rorie's Ornaments Card


Hi! Yes, I am still making last minute Christmas cards! This 6 by 6 inch card was made with the adorable "Rorie's Ornaments" from Lacy Sunshine.

CARD RECIPE

1. 6 by 6 inch white card base
2. 5 3/4 by 5 3/4 inch mat cut from a striped design from the Pixey    Stix glitter stack by the Paper Studio.
 3. 6 by 6 inch pink mat. 
4. 4 by 6 "Rorie's Ornaments" image printed at 4 by 6 inches and 
 trimmed down to 3 3/4 by 5 3/4 inches. Image was printed on  Spectrum Noir Cardstock.
5. 7 inch piece of 1 1/2 inch wide white lace.
6. 2 1/2 inch premade shaker ornament sticker.
7. Scrap of silver metallic trim.
8. Tape, tape runner and glue.
9. Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers and clear Glitter Marker.


Wrap the lace around the right side of the striped mat so that the edge is about 1/4 inch in from the right edge. Tape in place on the back of the mat. Use the silver trim to make a loop in which to hang the ornament. Tape the ends to the back of the mat at the top edge, centered over the lace. Attach the ornament over the lace so it is centered.


Mount your colored image on the pink mat, then attach both to the striped mat, centered on the left side. Attach the striped mat to the white card base and you are finished! I love the unconventional colors I used in this card.

Trolls


I recently stepped down from the KBD design team to catch up with my personal life and recharge my batteries. Of course that does not mean that I have given up crafting! I'll still be here sharing my passion, I'll just be using a more varied source of inspiration.




Lacy Sunshine has recently come out with a line of adorable troll images that I love. She had a couple Freebies, "Broomkin Troll" and "Angelkin Troll" that I just had to color up and make into cards. 


The Broomkin Troll card measures 5 1/2 by 6 inches. The image is printed on a 3 1/2 by 4 inch piece of Spectrum Noir Cardstock and was colored with the new vintage colors from Spectrum Noir. 

Color Palette

Skin: LG1,3, CG1
Hair:BO1,2,3, TN4
Hat: IB1, VB1,2,3, BGR5
Dress:LV1, DP2,3,4, DR7
Broom: GB1,4,7
Stars: Gold glitter gel pen
I also used a white gel pen on the eyes and the tooth.


My second card using Angelkin Troll is 5 by 7 inches. The image is printed on a 3 1/2 by 5 1/2 inch piece of Spectrum Noir Cardstock. I used a lot of palette blending when coloring this image.

Color Palette

Skin: EB1, HB1, LV2
Hair: LV1,3, HB2,3
Dress: CG1, LG1, LY2, LV1, blender
Wings: BT1, blender
Cloud: BT1, LV1, HB1, blender
Clear Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen was added to the wings, candle and cloud.
A gold glitter gel pen was used on the halo and candle flame. A white gel pen was used on the eyes.
