Glory To The Newborn King

I'm on the ball today!  Now that I am back on schedule, I might manage to keep on track.    Today's prompt for the Month Of Holiday Cards at Beccy's Place is the Letter L.

I was pleased to see when I looked at the cards in the gallery that my friend Jude had joined in.  I encouraged her to add her christmas cards as that is what she is working on at the moment.

Joy

There is another race on at Beccy's Place.  It is good timing for me as I had just been creating with an image that I had printed out for last year's challenge that hadn't got used.  I have about five or so from last year that I didn't end up using, so I'm going to try and get them on to cards this year.

I have created an easel card following a tutorial from Beccy's Place which can be found here.

The image and sentiment are also from Beccy's Place.  I think the quilted puddings are no longer in the store.

Colouring is with copic markers.

Fancy A Cuppa

The October challenge for the progressive challenge at Limited Runs featured a cat with a coffee mug.  He looks a bit disgruntled as some of it landed on his head!

I have used a paper from a paper pad by Kaisercraft.  The image is the progressive image from Limited Runs.  I added a digital sentiment from Bird's Cards.  Colouring is with copic markers - with some Glossy Accents added to the eyes.  I also added a paw print - the gem was originally blue but I re-coloured it with an orange copic marker so it fit better with the colour scheme of the card.

Knotted King Kite Kard

I couldn't resist spelling card with a K to make it fit the letter of the day!

There were only three colours starting with K in the colour chart that I have been using - so I used all three.

Hello

After creating this card, I've decided that I need more practice at one layer cards.  At the moment, they are definitely not a strength of mine!  I gave it a go and hopefully I can learn from it and do a better job the next time that I attempt one.

I have used all seven elements on the wheel at Butterfly Challenge for O.

I worked with a white cardstock base for my card with the image printed on it and then cut to size.  The image is from Eureka Stamps and is coloured with copic markers in the three colours on the wheel.  I drew an oval around the image using a copic marker (the style with the more penlike nib).  Not only did the oval frame the image but it also met one of the other items on the wheel.  I drew a  line around the edge of the card and added a sentiment using a pigment liner from Staedtler.  To finish off, I added the seventh element which was "only one extra embellishment".  I used a very thin gold butterfly embellishment which kept the card closer to one layer.

Let Us Adore Him

We are up to the 12th day of November and I am still on schedule at this stage.  I have chosen the card folds I am going to make for each letter (except Y) and there are a couple of tricky ones towards the end of the alphabet.  It is a horrible day here with heavy rain and thunderstorms so I am going to make a start on some of those tricky ones.   You kind of forget it is meant to be summer on days like this!  It sound like it might be hailing too.

 
 This is the inside of the card showing the sentiment panel:
