Case me a Christmas card with Cecilia Hsieh

Welcome to Case me a Christmas Card for 2021 - a Christmas Card blog series! 

From October to December, I will link to a series of guest cardmakers on my blog. I will CASE one of their cards, and they will CASE one of mine! CASE stands for either Copy And Share Everything, or Copy And Selectively Edit. It's about getting inspiration from cardmaking friends, but making a new card that is our own. And, of course, the card we each make has to be a Christmas card!

Background

In November 2016, I started this a little series on my blog. It started with me wanting to challenge myself to step outside my comfort zone with my Christmas cardmaking, so I asked friends to challenge me to do something different. 2016 challenges included using embroidery thread on a card, making a food themed card, making a geeky Christmas card (it had the Tardis on it) and making a dinosaur themed card. 

In 2017, I asked some of my cardmaking friends to join me with these challenges. Then, in 2020, I changed things up a bit by asking each of my guests to CASE one of my cards and I would CASE one of theirs. Ardyth Percy Robb made a video in 2020 (linked here) of a 5 step process that I use all the time when I am making a CASE of anybody's card, so I encourage you to check out her video!

You're amazing, Hero Arts

 I thought I'd share another card I made with the My Monthly Hero kit and one of the add-ons from Hero Arts.

I stamped the background stamp in black in, then watercoloured the image with Zig markers and a water brush.

Holly border for Paper Rose

 Hello! Today, I'm sharing a Christmas card for Paper Rose Studio

I started by stamping, Copic colouring, and die cutting the holly berries and leaves from Sketchy Christmas Ornaments nine times. I set them aside while I stamped the same stamp around the edge of a white card base in red ink, and then ink blended around the edge with the same red ink. I stamped and gold embossed the sentiment in the middle, and adhered the coloured holly around the edge. I finished with the little merry banner, white embossed onto a scrap of red cardstock.

My Monthly Hero December release!

 The December My Monthly Hero kit and add-ons are now available at Hero Arts!  Today, I'm sharing a card using the new kit.  

 The kit includes three of the four Reactive ink colours I used on this card - I added Blue Hawaii to the top as well. I made the moon by using a circle mask while I ink blended, then I masked around the circle and added some versamark ink, before brushing on some Perfect Pearl powder. I then coloured in the grey blobs with a copic marker.

Paper Glaze Plumeria for Picket Fence Studios

Hello! My card today uses the new Slim Line Plumeria stencil, along with the Mini Slim Line Double Stitched rectangles, and a bunch of different paper glazes. 

The sentiment is cut from cardstock that I had coated with Paper Glitz Sparkle, ad I added a sub sentiment from Word Topper Dies Subtitles.
