Starry Christmas Night

Wednesday, December 20, 2017
Last minute card making?! What about this winter scenery card? The background can be easily achieved by adding some Sparkle marker inks on a acrylic block (choose a bigger block) and spray the scribble with water then push a piece of watercolor cardstock onto the inky surface. Apply some equal pressure on the back of the cardstock to spread the ink evenly across the paper. Add more ink and repeat step for a darker color of sky. 

As for the Christmas tree, it is a cutout from a Christmas tree die by Crafter's Companion which is then smeared with some Pabeo silver wax to make it looks like snow fallen on the tree.  The rest is pretty easy to make! Hope you enjoy making this card and get it sent out on time before the holidays!

Spectrum Noir AquaBlend Pencils And Embossing

Wednesday, December 13, 2017
Another card using Sheena's embossing folder - Baubles Baby. The dimension is so beautiful I decided to color it with Spectrum Noir AquaBlend pencils. These pencils are so cool it let you add water to the colored image and create a watercolor effect! If it isn't on your Christmas list you should add this to it! :)

Happy Christmas Card With DIY background pattern

Friday, December 8, 2017
Have you sent all your holidays card out yet? Sharing this card using Chloe's stamps and die today. I used foil over the holly leaves instead of stamps. The background was made by coloring a silver glitter stock with a green Spectrum Noir alcohol marker! Love the look of it, who says you need to use patterned paper all the time?! :)

Hey Santa!

Sunday, December 3, 2017
It's the month of the season and it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas! Here I am sharing one of the holidays cards I made to join the countdown spirit! I created this card using Sheena's embossing folder named "Hey Santa!" on a watercolor cardstock and then colored it with sparkle markers! To make the Santa stand out from the overall design I simply outlined it with black Aqua marker and left the inside blank. For a complete list of supplies used, please see end of post. 

I hope stay around for the next couple of weeks before Christmas so I can share more Chrstimas projects with you! I update my Instagram pretty regularly so don't forget to follow me there! My IG handle is alias alexia_teh. Hope to see you there and thanks for stopping by!

Happy Thanksgiving!!

Thursday, November 23, 2017
Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I just want to tell you how grateful I am to have you all wonderful supporters, couldn't have come this far without you. Thank you!! I hope you are having a good time with friends and family today and eat that Turkey while it's hot! :) If you missed the post on Monday, check it HERE to enter yourself a chance to win a $10 gift certificate to Crafter's Companion online store! Entry open till 26th 11:59pm EST. 

Made this card using the Garden Vines die from Sara's Autumn Morning collection, I first colored with sparkle pens in fall colors on the watercolor cardstock and die-cut it on a four-frame design. Then I used different color cardstocks in the background to make the cutout pattern stands out, darker color are preferred since the color of the vines are pretty bright on its own.

Lots of love!!
