Special Delivery Card by April Guest Designer Kaja Vezensek

Hello there!
It's Kaja from Kajcyika crafts! I am back with a new card as a April guest designer here at Newton's Nook blog. Can't believe that this is last Monday in April! I had so much fun and I hope to be back on this blog sometime in the future. :)

Today we will talk about how to use your Christmas stamps in a non-christmas way. I will show you how to do so with a Newton's Nook Designs set called Winston's home for Christmas. :)

First, take a look of what I have created:

I have also prepared a video tutorial for you. Make sure you check it out! :)

The most important thing while doing a technique like this is to know what do you want your image to look like in the end. I knew that I want the Christmas tree and the wreath to be gone, so I used my post it notes to mask it off.
I couldn't make the masks to fit perfectly, since the tree is also inside our car, so I just stamped the masked images on my watercolor paper and filled up the missing lines with my black alcohol marker.

I colored everything up with my ZIG markers and I used the colors that are not Christmas related at all, cause I didn't want this car to remind us of holidays. I think that this could be a perfect birthday card for a boy, since we have a cute car and the gifts on it.

Since I really wanted to focus on a technique of masking of a holiday stamp and making it non-holiday I decided to leave the rest of the card simple. I drew some stitched lines at the background and stamped the sentiment 'Special delivery' from Newton's happy mail set.

In the end I just glued down our card with the double sided rectangles and our birthday card was all finished!

I just want to say that I am really grateful for being a guest designer here at Newton's nook this month and I hope that you enjoyed my cards! :)
