Arteza Coloring Christmas Scene | Simon's December Card Kit

Hey everyone! Today I have a card featuring a Christmas scene created using Distress Oxide Inks and Arteza Watercolor Markers.


I started out the card by stamping a few of the images from Simon Says Stamp’s Christmas Cheer stamp set onto Bristol Smooth paper with Gina K Amalgam ink. I then colored in the images with my Arteza Watercolor Markers. Check out the video to see the coloring process and the colors I used! Once the coloring was done I cut the images out with my Scan N Cut. I placed the colored in sign in my MISTI and lined up some of the words to stamp on the sign. I stamped them with Brutus Monroe Raven Detail Ink.


Next I took out another piece of Bristol Smooth paper to do some ink blending with Distress Oxide ink. I used the colors Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean, Blueprint Sketch, and Black Soot to create a sky. I cut this paper down to 9 x 3.5 and prepped it with my powder tool for embossing. I used my MISTI tool to stamp some of the snowflakes from the set onto the sky with Simon Says Stamp embossing ink. I embossed the snowflakes with Marshmallow Puff embossing powder from Brutus Monroe. This embossing powder is really cool because it is white and as you heat it it puffs up a little giving the snowflakes some texture. This embossing powder is the powder of the month for December in Brutus Monroe’s Embossing Powder of the Month club.


I popped up the Distress Oxide panel onto a Neenah Desert Storm card base with foam tape. I cut some curves across a piece of Bristol Smooth paper to create some snowy hills. I glued this piece onto the Distress Oxide panel. Next I used the Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink to blend a shadow along to bottom edge of the snowy hills. Next I adhered the snowman and sign poll with foam tape and the Christmas tree with Gina K Connect Glue onto the card. I stamped a sentiment from the stamp set onto Gina K Cherry Red cardstock and embossed it with Alabaster embossing powder. I mounted the sentiment strip onto some vellum and then popped it up onto the card.


For some finishing touches on the card I added some highlights and details with a white gel pen. I also used Glossy Accents on the tree’s ornaments, the star, and then top of the sign pole. I used my Wink of Stella glitter brush to add some sparkle. Finally, I used Unicorn glitter glaze along the top of the signs and on the Christmas tree to make them look frosty.
