Seasons Greetings

Morning Guys, 

How are we all today, well it is Monday again already so that means it is my day to share with you some ideas. 

Today I thought I would use some of the Yuletide Stamps.

For this card I used two stamps, I used Holly Swirl Tree and Seasons Greetings   

I complemented the stamps with the Inkables Chain Link Fencing mask

The card is an A4 blank, which I matted with a red layer and then a white layer, the white layer I used the inkables mask and embossed it using my embossing machine, I only did this for the top of the layer. 

I stamped my "Holly Swirl Tree" stamp using a clear ink pad and embossed it with a gold tinsel embossing powder. I matted this onto a piece of red card to give it extra layer, next I stamped in black ink the sentiment and again matted this onto the red card stock.

I added a ribbon and a bow, placed the "seasons greetings" to the bottom, three card candi and liquid pearls in gold.

This is a close up, of what the embossing powder looks like, I tried to cature the sparkle.

That is it for me for today, I will be back next week with more inspiration.

Santa is coming to town

Good Morning Guys, 

Today I have for you a card using one of the Yule Tide collection. I have used Claus as the main feature of this card. 

The card is a 7x7 card blank that has been matted and layered up using various backing papers, and card stock. 

The image was stamped and then his face was coloured in using promarkers, I used stickles to glitter his beard and white pearls to "pearl" around him. 

I finished the card off with some ribbon, which I tied into a bow and three pieces of card candi.

I hope you like him and thank you for stopping in

Poppy Heads

Good Morning Crafty Friends, 

It is Monday morning again, where are these weeks going, be December soon and then in to the new year. 

The card I have for you today is one that I have left blank with regards to a sentiment, I thought that it could be used for a Birthday, Thinking of You, Sympathy or just a Hello card. 

I started with a plain blank card stock, and used a deep blue ink pad and inked the background I didn't really take much care with  it as I wanted it to look all wispy.

I took the "Poppy Heads"    I inked them up using a clear ink pad, and heat embossed them with a suttle white embossing powder.

Next I matted and layered this up on to various card stock to give it some definition.

To finish it off I added ribbon to the bottom, with a fake bow and three pieces of white card candi.

That is it for me for today.

Under My Tree

Good Morning Guys, 

Monday again so it means it is my turn to share with you some more inspiration. 

Today I have a Christmas card for you. 

I created a 6x6 card blank and started with a red card blank. 
The next layer was a white blank card stock, the I repeatedly stamped the sentiment "If you're not under my tree Christmas morning i'm going back to bed" 
I next matted it again with a plain red layer and then stamped the sentiment repeatedly on the next white layer again using a christmas red ink pad. 
The main topper was stamped with black inkpad and then his hair and beard was glittered using a fine glitter glue. I matted this onto a red layer. To finish the card I stamped the sentiment again and matted it up, and placed it into the corner, I added a poinsettia with some gold fibres, and three pieces of card candi, I then fake stitched around the layers to give them further detail. 

Well that is it for me for today
