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

Stylish Reindeer part 3

Here is my third card using the Woodware Stylish Reindeer stamp from Woodware.

It’s my take on a card my friend Gill designed . I used the Woodware Wood Panel stamp in the background using Versamark ink on Grey card, I stamped in twice to make a bigger piece as the card size is 7”x 5” . Then I used Wow White Embossing powder to hear emboss the Reindeer which has been stamped in my Wow ink or you could use Versamark ink.  Once heat set it has been cut out using my Presscut Stitched Oval die. Finished off with Creative Expressions Itty Bitty bow die in some patterned card from Hobby House and I stamped the sentiment in Grey ink and added a gem.

John Lockwood New Release Stencil

Todays card using his new Snow stencil from Johns new collection . It has been inked through with Versacolor White ink. The tree, from his Winter tree stamp set from last year, has been embossed with Silver Sparkles from Wow. The Oval die is from Presscut and the snow drift at the bottom has been created using the Sue Wilson Hills and Clouds die set.
