OCC - Merry Making Day 5

Day 5 was watercolor.  I really enjoy watercoloring but am not very good at it.

I used the Zig Clear Color markers for the flowers.  I think they came out good, especially for me.

Thanks for stopping by.

Die cutting was the topic today.  I have lots of dies so this was easy for me.

I die cut the bak ornament from glitter paper and the front was foiled in gold.  It's really pretty in person.

Thanks for stopping by.

We were to use non-Christmas stamps for this day.

I did use snowflake stamps to make my card look more wintery.

OCC - Merry Making Day 2

Today was about stamping techniques.  I have lots of Christmas stamps but I wanted to use a layering stamp.  I don't have any that are Christmas so I used an Altenew stamp and made a thank you card.

I first scored my card then stamped the flowers.

Thanks for stopping by.

OCC - Merry Making Day 1

I've been taking another Online Card Class.  This one was making Christmas cards.  I already have mine made but thought I'd learn some new techniques.

Day 1 was backgrounds.  I uses Distress Oxides to make several backgrounds before I got one I really liked. I used one I had put  aside for the die cut leaves.

I will be making for backgrounds using distress oxides.  They really blend easily.

Thanks for stopping by.

I had to really think about iron.  I finally came up with the idea to use Ten Second Studio VerDay paint.

I die cut an opening in the iron paper and put a background i made a while ago behind it.  I die cut a leaf stem and attached a hello that I used some gilding flakes on.

Thanks for stopping by.


I really had a hard time with this one.  I had so many ideas, which one to do.

I found the silver tape in my stash.  I have it in 3 different sizes but only used the 2 smallest.  I used silver Nuvo gilding flakes on the thanks and the center of the flowers.
