Nativity Week #3: Copic Airbrush Christmas Cards

If you’ve been waiting for Nativity Week to get serious, this post is for you!

Nativity Christmas Cards (Copic airbrush)

While I created my beautiful backgrounds with a Copic airbrush, YOU can also do this with your own mediums! Try with distress inks…watercolor, powdered pencil – whatever you have that makes pretty backgrounds! Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

Penny Black has some really nice sentiment stamps – lots have a mix of Christian and secular sentiments. I’ll let you pick!

24 Tags of Christmas 2018: #3 Fuzzy Fox Tag

24 Tags of Christmas 2018: #3 Fuzzy Fox Tag

 

Fuzzy Fox Tag

The cute Warm Wishes Fox from Honey Bee is peeking into the scene on the tag – and I think that makes  him more playful than just standing front and center, don’t you?Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

The card uses the same tree, sweater, and fox technique, but adds some deep snow, too. And embossing over top of the coloring! 🙂

Cute little additions to the giveaway, don’t you agree? Got to love a little fox!

24 Tags of Christmas 2018

Each year I make 24 tags – and give them away in a random drawing! This year I’ll be trying things a little differently; in the past I picked 2 people from YT comments and 2 from blog comments….but I found a lot of the YT folks never came to find out they won, and I had no idea how to reach them in many cases. So…this year, it’s all about blog comments where I can at least reach out to winners! So leave comments on each blog post this week for the opportunity to be in the drawing!

24 Tags of Christmas 2018: #1 Diorama Dog Tags

Diorama Dog Tags

Welcome to the first of 6 videos in the 24 tags of Christmas series! I’m using pups – there always seems to be a pup stamp set in the series, doesn’t there/?? This time it’s MFT’s Deck the Howls, and I used the shaker pouches with them; you can also add shaker goodies inside but I just id some layered pieces to create little dioramas! Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

This little pup was a little too tall with his antlers on his head – so he made it onto a card instead. Complete with trees and a chimney from his rooftop perch! Stay tuned all week for bonus cards here on the blog that didn’t get done in time to put into the videos.

This is the little Vienna pup….lookin’ all happy!

The wiener dog got a little more snow in the air….notice on these that I only put snow in the background behind the pups, where I normally add snow in front too. I left it off on these to be sure the pups were still the focus, but technically the snow should be all over!

I colored this one like lil G. Who adores the snow. He’s never happier than if it’s up to his neck!

Little grey pup got all wrapped up in the decorating!

Hope you liked these…they were fun to make! I’ll have to send them in little protected packages to the winners since they’re a half inch thick. 🙂

Mittens in the snow [video hop]

Mittens in the snow [video hop]

 

Mittens in the snow

Is that anything like “Riders in the Sky”???

Okay enough silliness. Today is a huge day – a big video inspiration day! I’m part of a hop (see the big post here) to celebrate the smaller YouTubers you might not know about yet! Won’t that be fun? I joined in as one of the bigger channels in the multi-day hop, so I could shine a little light on creative folks who may not get seen much, so I hope you’ll visit them!

I’m using Catherine Pooler inks and stamps today to color some mittens in the snow. Texture for snow, texture for fuzzy warm mittens, who could want for more?? Watch my tutorial video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

My card uses a very simple palette of markers….

Finishing off the card nly needed a layer of black and a red card base….ba da boom, ba da bing!

A penguin waddled into an elevator

I wish I had a joke for this – anyone good at writing jokes?!? Leave them in comments! I wanted to originally do an escalator. A shopping penguin. But that needs more practicing, but I figured I could do an elevator MUCH more easily! Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

The promised fox…..
