Framed Poinsettia

Framed Poinsettia

My class today was based around Distress Oxides . There has been a release of new colours and I wanted to show three different ways to use these wonderful ink pads.

Today’s card uses the Framed Poinsettia stamp from Woodware . I have used Candied Apple , Mowed Lawn and Tea Dye (last two are from the latest release) Oxides and coloured with a water brush on Watercolour card. The image has been stamped with Black Versafine ink. The side panel has been created using a Versamark ink and the stamp. The sentiment comes in pack .

Acetate class

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)

Hope you like the colour scheme, thought it would make a change from Red Poinsettias. Back tomorrow night with another idea for using acetate.
Have a great weekend

One stamp three ways

One Stamp Three Ways

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
