Mixing Custom Watercolors + Gold Embossed Holiday Card

It is Watercolor Wednesday on the Unity blog.  Today, I am sharing a gold embossed holiday card with a mix of custom watercolor.


Sentiment personalized:  Have a wild Christmas.

Along with mixing a custom watercolor shade, I heat embossed the beautiful deer antlers in gold.  It provides lovely golden shimmer against the peach or coral custom shade.

The full article and tutorial are up on the Unity blog.
I also made a quick video tutorial showing the process for this project.

Gift Card Box ~ Day 1 Sneak Peeks MCT 84th Edition Release

Hello.  The MCT team is sharing Day 1 sneak peeks of the 84th Edition release.  



Sentiment:  Joy

This holiday box was made for gift card gift-giving in mind.  It was made using the new gift card gift box dies included in the upcoming release.  I just die-cut using solid and patterned papers.  For the box adhesive, I used score tape.  Then I accented with coordinating Christmas dies and a doily.  This would make a great stocking stuffer or gift presentation.

Here is another look.

Cute framed holiday or any time deer card.

This sweet card was made with the holidays in mind but can be used for all occasions and seasons.


This was made with a mix of paper layers, die-cuts, stamping, ribbon and fussy cutting.
The stamping was colored with Copic markers and then everything was layered to finish the card.

Here is a quick video tutorial for this framed all occasion deer card.


And here is a closer look:


Supplies:  Unity Stamp Co. Holiday Deer by Lisa Glanz, dies by My Creative Time, Copic markers R27, R20, E13, E11, E00, YR00, BG10; ribbon, twine, assorted paper and cardstock.

Have a lovely day.

Happy Holidays Deer Buck Card

Here is a bright and cheerful holiday handmade card with a sweet deer buck.


Sentiment:  Happy Holidays

This sweet deer was colored in with Copics and then die-cut to form a scalloped frame.  I also added a sentiment tag and a strip of patterned paper for accents.  I love adding a little texture to card making, yet keeping the card mailable through the postal system.

Here is a quick video tutorial for this deer buck holiday card.

Three projects: Christmas Tags and a Gift Card Envelope

Here is a set of gift tags and a gift card envelope holder for the holidays.


This is a way to get coordinating gift giving accessories for Christmas or the holiday packages.  I began by stamping and adding Copic coloring and then die-cutting accent layers for the pieces.

I made a quick video tutorial for all three of these gift projects.


Here are the individual items in this gift set.



And finally, the envelope, made to hold a gift card, money or a note card.


Supplies:  Unity Stamp Co. Deer Cart by Lisa Glanz, Copic markers G21, YG13, G99, YG03, R20, E00, YR00, W1, W3, E13, E11, BG10, E37; My Creative Time dies.

I hope this inspires you to get an early start on the holiday tags and accessories that go along with gift giving.

Have a great day.

Space Galaxy Watercolor Baby Card with Brusho Crystals

It is Watercolor Wednesday on the Unity blog.  Today, I am making a baby shower card background with the look of a watercolor space galaxy.


Sentiment personalized:  Welcome Lucas

This card was made special for a friend's baby shower.  She has decorated the baby's room in a Star Wars theme.  Hence, his name.  So I had to try making a space scene emulating stars or a galaxy.  I used Brusho Crystal Colours and it provided the effect that I was looking for.

The full article and tutorial are up on the Unity blog.
I also made a quick video tutorial showing the process for this project.
