I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas

Good morning crafters

Just a quick post today
This card I made from Hobby Art stamp set - Poles apart.
A lovely lazy polar Bear

 The sentiment was stamped in versamark and heat embossed in clear embossing powder. I then created the mountain background again all in the same stamp set. I then masked this off and used colour cloud ink to blend over to create the sky. I laid the bear on CS Glacier Ice for snow.
A bit late with my post, unfortunately my father in law sadly passed away on Monday.
Take care everyone xx

Maggie's Christmas

Hi Everyone
I hope you all are keeping well.
Not long to Christmas now so I thought I would post another Christmas Card this week.

I used Sue Wilson Maggie die for my focal element and added SB layered poinsettias which I embossed with CS ruby red slippers brilliant embossing powder, It is such a rich colour I love it and completed them with black gems. I seated the larger one on to black ribbon, and added a few leaves to both Poinsettias.
I embossed a piece of white card with an embossing folder (a freebie)  and then matted and layered on to red then black card using SW double pierced squares.

Where do the weeks go, have you started buying your presents yet?
I have bought a few and I have my youngest daughter birthday just before Christmas too.
Many thanks for stopping by and have a great week.

Purple Snowflakes!!

Hi Everyone
Well what terrible weather we have been having we have a wonderful puddle (more like a lake)  outside our house that nearly goes right across the whole road. I hope everyone is ok out there and has not been affective too much by the rain.
Anyway on to todays card
 A combination of old and new on this card.
I have used one of Phil Martin Scribbled Snowflake verses for the focal element of this card. His sentiments are wonderful (note to self to add more of Phil's stamps to my wish list ) lol.
I still love the Elegant Labels four die from SB.
The snowflakes are from SW Bold Snowflake which are heat embossed with CS Brilliant Sparkles Frosty Dawn and Vivid Violet powders, with a pearl in each centre.
I think the colours are wonderful. I hope you can see the sparkle in the photos!

Thank you for taking the time to stop by.

Snow Globe Penguins

Hi Crafty Friends 

Here is today's card, the penguins from Hobby Art -Poles apart stamp set.. a wonderful set.

 Aren't these penguins so cute...
I started by stamping the image in Watering can Archival ink which I embossed with clear embossing powder. I coloured the image with my promarkers. I have a snow globe mask which I placed over my image and embossed. I then hand cut the snow globe out.I masked off the penguins and created a snowy scene by using two different sizes of polkda dot masks. I inked through them with tumbled glass disagree ink.
For the sentiment I used one of Phil Martins stamps and curved it to fit into the bottom of the snow globe. I heat embossed in clear then coloured over with ink which makes it pop.
For the background I embossed a piece of white card with a snowflake mask then added versamark to the embossed snowflakes which I covered with clear embossing powder. I think you can see the shine in the photos.
I then created a frame from dark blue card.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by.

Winters Deer

Hi Everyone
How are you all.
The weather has turned really chilly and blustery today but it looked beautiful outside with the sun shining.

 I just love the way this card turned out. A very CAS card.
The image is from Polkadoodle (the deer family) which I coloured in with my promarkers.
I added CS Glacier Ice at the bottom of the Deer's feet to give a winters feel to the card.
I framed the image with SW double pierced dies.
The card stock used is Milk and Taupe from CE teamed with brown from Limetree Crafts.
A great card that could be used for a winter birthday or a Christmas card.
Many thanks for taking the time to stop by.

Christmas Greetings

Morning All
 I was really pleased with the way this card turned out (even my husband likes it!!)
I started by spreading silver glitter paste from Glitzcraft  through a snowflake mask on to acetate.
I left it overnight to dry and then mounted it on to some Foundation Sky Blue card from CE. I stamped Phil Martins Scribble Snowflake around the corners ( its in his verses set) and embossed with Silver Shine powder. I used SW double pierced square dies to frame it.
On the opposite corners I cut SW bold Snowflake in Coconut white and Sky blue card

The sentiment is from TL which I cut twice and glued one on top of the other then heat embossed with clear ink to give it a lovely shine.

For my Daughter

Hi all
 I made this card for my daughters birthday, which was last Friday.

I can't believe she was 27 - where does the time go....
I started with the caught in crystal technique using alcohol inks on to acetate and adding Glamour dust to give it some sparkle. I'm not sure how well this comes through in the pictures.
I created a frame for this using SW oval frames from her festive collection ( the let it snow and the lattice snowflake die)

 I mounted this on to some white card stock which I had embossed with a mask and ink through to make it pop a little more.
I then added layers of teal and white card cut from SW double pierced square dies.
The sentiment is computer generated. I then added SW complete Camellia flowers to complete the card.
Thanks for stopping by.
Enjoy your week.
