Christmas Double Easel Card

Hey folks! I've got some awesome news for y'all! The new 3D and Fun Folds CD from Technique Junkies is ready for purchase!! See the "Buy Now" button over on the right side of my blog? Click on that and you'll be able to buy your copy of this great cd filled with 70 brand new techniques. In addition to the step by step techniques, you'll also see some gorgeous artwork for these techniques to inspire you.

This is one of several projects that have been keeping me so busy lately. I'm excited to share some of the samples that I created for this cd. What I am sharing tonight is the Double Twisted Easel Tutorial.

Isn't that a cool card? It's actually much easier than it looks - just follow the steps in the tutorial and you'll have your own card made lickety split! Just click on the "Buy Now" button (upper right side of my blog) to order your cd.

This chipboard star was painted with some gesso first, and then I used some yellow Sunshine Creative Inspirations Paints to make this chipboard star all shimmery.

For this cute scene, I colored the image with Copic markers first, and then I went to town with several Creative Inspirations Paints. The star at the top of the tree is painted with Sunshine, the red Christmas lights and the holly berries are painted with Garnet, the blue bulbs on the ground are painted with Denium, the tops of the blue bulbs are painted with Antique Silver, and the copper bands going around the barrel planter are painted with Antique Copper. Isn't that shimmer nice and festive? :-)

Check in with me this weekend as I share some more of the projects I created for the new technique cd. Some will be SO perfect for those Christmas gifts that you'll be giving to your loved ones in less than two months. :-)

This is a wonderful card. It really does look complicated.
