Hi Folks, I have a couple of cards to show you today using the Winter Edges stamp set available from Chocolate Baroque
My first card uses the lovely focal stamp from the Reindeer Landscape stamp set, which I have coloured with Splash inks. I have then embossed
a few snowflakes over the top, and added some glitter glue to the
shaded areas to suggest some fallen snow on the ground.
have created a long background panel by using one of the snowflake edge
stamps, and embossing the image using white embossing powder. I filled
the space at the top of the card by turning it around, and just used the
top of the stamp again, it fit into the gaps perfectly. I then added
several colours of blue Distress Ink to the card, and the white
embossing powder acted as a resist, showing through the ink. Once I had
assembled my card, I stamped the word 'Believe' in the top corner.
second card uses the house edge stamp and another of the snowflake edge
stampes to create a scene. I stamped these directly onto the front of a
square card and filled in the gap between with single snowflake stamps
from the same set, using white embossing powder again. I coloured the
card using various blue Distress Inks, creating a graduated look. Once I
had finished, I spritzed the card with water, to create a mottled
effect to add to the snowy feel. I cut a heart shape from the centre of
the front of the card, and also from a piece of scrap paper. With the
die still in place, and adding the paper mask to the front of the card
to protect the card front, I sponged some colour onto the inside of the
card through the heart shape. I added a favourite Christmas sentiment of mine.
I think that this is a design that I will make quite a few of this year, as it is simple for batch making, and contains a sentiment already built into the card. How are you all getting on with your Christmas cards?
Thanks for stopping by, xx
