Young At Heart Class

The cards today are from my Young At Heart class for a couple of weeks ago.  First one uses a mask from That Special Touch called Nordic Christmas together with one of the Sue Wilson Dies Here Comes Santa Snow Globe Scene. The mask has been coloured with Creative Expressions Cloud Chalk ink Misty Grey. I filled the shaker cup with Creative Expressions Glitter Jewels Iced Snow. Mark Richards Glitter Domes were added in the corners and the sentiment is from Creative Expressions Santa Sentiments.

Next one uses a stamp set from Hunkydory called Snowy Snow Globe. The Snow acetate behind is also from Hunkydory and comes in a A4 pack. I used a Creative Expressions Cloud ink Clear Day around the edges and the snow was created with the Glitter Jewels as used in the first card. The colouring was done with some Promarkers. Sentiments are in the stamp set and I used Stazon Ink for the one on the acetate.

Last one for today and probably my favourite because I love using Fluffy Stuff. The stamp is from Craft UK and is called Santa and Pals (those stamps are on a Buy 2 get 1 free at moment) and its coloured with Promarkers. I used Woodware Fluffy stuff in White on his moustache and bobble, which you apply and then heat with a heat gun.  I stamped the image twice and then cut out the moustache and nose to create a 3D effect but you don’t have to. The background was created using a sponge and some of the Cloud ink I used for the second card.  The little snowflake stamp was stamped with Silver pigment ink and is in the Santa Sentiments stamp set. I also used the Ho Ho Ho and Santa Claus is coming to town stamps from the same set. Finally I added some Glamour Dust for a little twinkle on the snowflakes and a White gel pen for detail on his hat and nose.

This class is being repeated on Saturday 21st October at 2.00pm . Have a fab weekend and hopefully you can get a chance to craft.

Working with Pixie Powders from Cosmic Shimmer

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.
