Christmas Card Series- Card Number 2

Hi everyone card number 2 in my christmas card series was made using the Seasons Tweetings stamp set from Lawn Fawn. I started the card by making my shaker element and inside the shaker I used fake snow and placed some of the birdie images I had stamped and coloured, then fussy cut. I used a white 6x6 blank card as my base, I then stamped all over the front of the card using Shabby shutters distress ink and a holly stamp. I then used my spectrum Noir DR1 and dotted red dots randomly over the stamped holly images.

I had used a pierced edged circle die to cut an aperture in the middle of my base card, This is where I placed my finished shaker element.  I then stamped the branch image using distress ink Vintage photo and fussy cut this out, I stuck the branch across the bottom of the shaker and sat three of the stamped images on to it. I stamped my sentiment and stuck it in the bottom of my card, My card was then finished.

Hello Autumn - Mixed Media Canvas

The Canvas was done using various mixed media products. To start off I used white gesso and covered the canvas, I used a baby wipe to do this, I then dried it off using my heat gun. I then used 3 colours of brown acrylic paints until  Igot the colour that I was looking for, the paints were all Artiste acrylic paints from Do crafts, I heat dried befor each application of a new colour.  I then used modelling paste by Windsor & Newton to go over my leaf stencils on various parts of my canvas. I then used my green spray paint to spray over my leaves. After drying it I then used an orange paint to stencil more small leaves on the canvas.  I then glued my image down using my mod podge and gluedmy various colours of leaves on to the canvas too. I then heat dried befor making some marks on too the canvas using Bananna yellow acrylic paint, I then heat dried the canvas again.  Finally I added my quote to the bottom of the canvas.

Christmas card series- Card number 1 - snowy penguin scene

Hi everyone, here is card number 1 in my christmas card series and as you can see, I used the cute little penguins to make my snowy scene.
Firstly I used a piece of water coloured card stock and used my salty ocean Tim Holtz distress ink to ink blend on to the card. I then spritzed the ink with my mini spritzer, I then dried it off using my heat gun, I repeated the process and was happy with it. I stamped the penguin images using memento black ink and coloured them using Spectrum Noir & Pro markers to colour the images, I then fussy cut around the images leaving a small white border.  I had cut two snow banks from my border dies, I used foam tape to attach the first one on to the bottom of my card, I had stamped and cut out three christmas tree images, I used Tim Holtz peeled paint distress ink. I used the 2nd hill and stuck it on to my card and placed the other 2 christmas trees on. I then used a small amount of white acrylic paint on my craft mat and sprayed it with water, I then used my fan brush to add white splatters all over the card, This was done to have the paint look like snow. I stamped my sentiment on to white cardstock using versafine onyx black ink and cut around it with my fancy edge scissors, I stuck the sentiment in the top left hand corner of my card using foam pads. All that was left was to stick my cutie penguin images on to my card, again i used foam pads. Finally I used my Crafters Companion sparkle pen to go over my sentiment and my penguins, this left a lovely sparkle effect on my images.

Ali Express Leaf Dies

Hello everyone  enjoyed making this card, I worked with my 2 favorite colours which you have probably guessed are Black & White.

I started of with my blank white card which measured just under five and a half square. I used my pierced edged circle dies to die cut a circle into my card and also my black piece of patterned paper.  I then glued the black piece on to my base card.  I had cut the leaf dies using white cardstock, I then glued the leaves around the die cut circle, I then glued on butterflies, the  largest butterly was cut from a paper pad of mine and the smaller butterflies were cut from a small die bought from the range.  I then used some flower embellishments to stick on to my card and also used white pearls and black gems to decorate my card.  I stamped my sentiment using a stamp from my collection, I used versafine Black onyx ink and then heat embossed over the sentiment using my clear embossing powder. I cut out the sentiment using my fancy edged scissors and stuck in the bottom right corner of my card.  I then used my crafters companion sparkle pen which is the same as the wink of stella pen, to go over the butterflies and flowers. My card was then finished
Hope you will watch my tutorial to this card, It will also tell you in the description where all the products used in the video were from.
