Pink and Grey color combo Christmas Cards

I was able to make two new Christmas cards this morning. I think I am getting much closer to the amount that I will need this holiday season.  I think it is fun to work on them in the summer when there is no pressure at all!

I created a sheet of patterned paper with my snowflake stamp set and then cut it in two to create two similar cards.

Card: By the Sea by Gina K. Designs

Here is another card using watercolor "dry on dry" brushstrokes from my Craftsy Watercolor Cards made easy class.  This time I used the blue distress ink to paint a sky.

Inkadinkado Sketchy Sailboat

This water was made using a brush stroke "dry on dry" technique that I learned in a class at Craftsy called Watercolor Cards Made Simple.  

The sailboat was stamped with a simple watercolor stamping technique where you ink up the stamp, then spritz a very fine mist of water on it before stamping.

Fast & Easy Card - Gina K Wildflowers

I have not had much time or inspiration to stamp and participate in blog challenges until just lately.  I had the background stamp out to work on this Shadow Stamping challenge over at Artsy Inkers, so when I saw this challenge for Fast and Easy, I thought it would be the perfect one to keep working with as this card idea only takes a few minutes!
