Hi there! Today I am sharing how to create Christmas cards with simple, repetitive stamping using Gina K Designs products and coloring them in using Copic Markers. I decided to create four projects today because I had the supplies out and have more cards to spread Christmas cheer. 🙂
I used three different techniques to add color to the cards. Some are more time consuming than others, so just choose which technique suits you best and start creating!
For all of the cards, I repetitively stamped one of the images from the Dashing stamp set by Gina K Designs over and over rotating the stamp to create a fun and detailed design.
For the first two cards, I decided for color inside the lines of the detailed images. I kept the coloring very simple with only a couple of shades to cut down on time, but you can go all out on coloring if you want to make them look extra special. Because you only need very limited supplies and colors you can take a pre-stamped card to an event and just have fun coloring!
COPIC BACKGROUND OMBRE
For the reindeer card, I quickly shaded the background using three different blue tones and feathering them messily to the edge. This is great if you are using solid stamps or if you are on a time crunch to get a card done quickly.
I added some white ink to lighten up the background and add a highlighted snowy effect to the images.
INK BLENDING DAB
For the snowflake card, I used the shape of the blending tool and smooshed down different shades of the Gina K Designs inks. I also used finger blending tools to get a smaller area of color onto the card stock.
I added some Wink Of Stella to the snowflakes to add some glitter and shine details.
To finish off the cards I added them onto a base using foam and added a white heat embossed sentiment onto the centers. I love how you can create a card set using minimal supplies and time, but still get awesome results!
