Today’s card is the second from my acetate class. It uses the John Lockwood Snowflake Wreath. I have coloured the die cut with some Ice Blue Shimmer Shakers by Creative Expressions. I die cut the large circle in the set and then cut a smaller circle in the centre . A piece of acetate was attached at the back. The stag die is part of the die set and has been die cut from Silver Mirror card . The sentiment is from Lisa Horton Christmas Mixer Sentiments stamp set and has been stamped onto the background acetate with Black Stazon Ink. Finished off with some gems in the centres of snowflakes and my favourite Itty Bitty Creative Expressions bow. Instead of attaching to a square card base I die cut another large circle and made it into a circle card. Tip: take a little off the bottom of the back circle to stop it wobbling when standing .
Good evening, today’s card is the first from my class last week using acetate. There are several types/thickness of acetate. Just make sure if you want to use embossing powder on some it’s heat resistant ( it should say on package ). This acetate was quite thick and I wanted to emboss it with a embossing folder. It worked really well, the folder was Falling Snow from Creative Expressions and it’s 8”x8” so you need an A4 machine . Crafts too do a smaller Snow embossing folder if you don’t have a big machine.
The Poinsettia was made using the John Lockwood Poinsettia stamp and die set. It has been stamped on White card and embossed with Silver Sparkle Wow powder. The leaves are from Creative Expressions and are called Christmas Stems but I can see them being used all year. I die cut them in White card and coloured with Oxide Bundled Sage and Peeled Paint Ink, using a dauber so as not to rip the leaves. The circle frame has been cut with Presscut Stitched Circles on Silver Mirror card. Finished off with a sentiment die from Creative Expressions die cut several times to add dimension and I added some glitter drops on the leaves using Cosmic Shimmer glitter PVA ( which I made the night before and added when hard)
Here is my third card using the Woodware Stylish Reindeer stamp from Woodware.
Today I have my second card to share using the Stylish Reindeer stamp by Woodware.
I am sharing one of three cards I made using the Stylish Reindeer stamp from Woodware. This card is completely flat besides the sentiment. I stamped the Reindeer in Walnut Stain ink, the foliage stamps are inked with Bundled Sage, Peeled Paint, Candied Peel and Walnut stain Oxide inks. I created a box with a pencil and then lined post it notes and when it was completed I went over it again with a Brown fine liner pen.
The sentiment comes in the stamp set and is inked with Candied Peel Oxide and mounted onto a scrap of Brown card. I finished off with some Diamond Stickles.
Back tomorrow with the second card
Jackie Da Silva;
Hi, hope you are all having a lovely bank holiday weekend. I have been playing with Creative Expressions Cosmic Shimmer Pixie Powders recently and today I am showing the first of three cards I made.
I used the Sun Yellow, Mango Blaze, Aqua Lagoon, Golden Mint and Purple Violet. I created the background first by tapping a small amount of the powders onto some white cardstock and then spraying with a fine mister spray. I dried it off with a heat gun and cut it to fit the frame I had made using my Presscut Stitched Rectangles dies.
The flowers are from Elizabeth Designs and are called Dandelion Fluff. The sentiment circle is from Craftwork Cards.
Back tomorrow with another one.
