White Christmas

I'll try and have a break from Christmas for my next card!

Base card is pool party and I've used some stamps from the set White Christmas which is great for building up little scenes like this.

Background is inked with pool party ink and the snowman and birds have been stamped, coloured with SU markers and cut out separately.

Some dazzling details added to finish too.

Another CAS card using the set Seasonally Scattered  which has the words Merry, Love and Thanks in it in a similar style.

This is heat embossed with gold powder and layered on very vanilla, gold glimmer paper and kraft card.

Festival of Trees

This card uses another lovely set - well, they are all lovely aren't they?!

It is also great value as the photopolymer stamp set featuring 13 stamps is only £13.95 or £24.95 with the matching punch.

The set is called Festival of Trees and the colours used in this card pick up those in the All is Calm Designer Series Paper I have used in the background and are Lost Lagoon and Pear Pizzazz.

Teeny Tiny Sentiments used with Bitty Banner Framelits, lost lagoon silky taffeta ribbon, silver glimmer paper punched out for star and finished with some gems.

I hope to make lots more samples using this fab set.

Christmas home

A mainly CASE'd card today.

This card features the Holiday Home stamp set.  I initially wasn't too keen (how many times have we said that?!) but I've seen lovely cards again and the little houses also make great new home cards.

You won't be surprised to know that the houses (there are 3) have matching framelits!

The stamp set has 24 stamps in which includes some sentiments and little 'bits' to add to your cards - this card includes some which are the sleigh & reindeer, tree, house lights, wreath, snowflakes and the sentiment!

I've used a couple of punched circles embossed with the Perfect Polka Dots folder for the 'snow'

The green card is cut out using the banner framelit.
