Christmas Card Series - Card number 5

Hello again, thank you for stopping by my blog to take a look. I really enjoyed making this card and was pleased with the finished look.
To make my card I used a blank a6 size card, I cut a matt of gold card stock slightly smaller than the white base card, I just cut it enough to leave a small border. I embossed the gold card using a flower embossing folder. I cut the window from the die using white card, I then cut a piece of acetate and covered the back of the die cut window piece, I used wet glue to stick the acetate. I stamped the christmas tree image using peeled paint distress ink from Tim Holtz, I coloured the baubles on the christmas tree image using my spectrum noir pens, I cut around the tree image so it would fit behind the acetate, I then stuck the tree image to the window. I used foam tape to stick the window to my base card. I stamped my sentiment using versamark ink and then heat embossed this using wow gold embossing powder.  I cut around the sentiment and stuck it to a piece of red card and the used foam pads to stick it on to my card.

Christmas card series- card number 4

Hi everyone  I enjoyed making this Christmas shaker card. I used a white A6 card as my base card. I matted the Base card with a piece of red and white spotty paper from a paper pad. I used my stitched circle dies to make the shaker element, I used shiny gold,silver and black stars in my shaker, I also used some tiny red beads.  I stamped and coloured 3 gingerbread  men and then fussy cut them. I positioned them on to my shaker window.  I stamped the happy Christmas  sentiment with my Versamark  ink and heat embossed it using wow gold embossing powder. I cut around the sentiment  using my fancy edged scissors, I matted this on to a piece of red card and stuck it at the bottom  of the card, my card was then finished.  Why not take a look at my process video on you tube.
Thank you for looking x

Card number 3 in my christmas card series

Hi everyone I started my card by using a stencil which was tree/bark effect, I stuck my stencil over a piece of water colour cardstock, I then used my vintage photo distress oxide ink and a sponge applicator and gently went over my stencil until I had the desired effect. Next I stamped the polar bear image using memento tuxedo black ink. I used that ink as I was going to colour them using my spectrum noir alcohol markers. I used GB 1 & 2, DR1, FL3 and my blender pen. I fussy cut the image. Next I used my peacock feathers and salty ocean distress inks and blended them over the stencil image. I then used foam pads to adhere my images to the stenciled image. I then used a small amount of white acrylic paint and spritzed thid with water, I used my fan brush to flick the white paint over my card, this was to give a snowy effect. I stamped my sentiment and heat embossed over it using clear embossing powder. I used an a6 white card blank and matted it with a piece of red card, I then stuck my finished image on to my red card. I stuck my sentiment on to the card. I then went over the polar bears and my sentiment with my crafters companion sparkle pen and my card was finished
