Quick Card

Hi All,

A nice quick and easy christmas card today in a crisp colour combo of white, silver and sparkle!

 
To make this one I stamped a square of white card with my Holly Scroll stamp and embossed it using WOW Silver Superfine, little jewels have then been added to all of the berries, and a large silky crush bow and rhinestone cluster - I really wanted this card to look like wrapped present so I added a tag too! The edges have been highlighted using Halo Glitter ( I told you I love it!)
 
Bye for now,

Traditional Christmas Door

Hi All,

Back to a more traditional christmas card today! This one has been made using my Christmas Door stamp.

 
The door has been stamped and embossed in WOW metallic gold sparkle embossing powder and then some glitter added using a quickie glue pen. I also added some Barn Door distress ink around the edges of the door to add some shading. The papers are K&Co I then added a sentiment to finish along with a few rhinestone clusters and a bow!

Tree and Reindeer Stepper Card

Hi All,

Todays card has been made using a stepper card which I bought from Which Craft? at StampMagic earlier in the year. These bases are really great for making quick cards. For this one I used some My Minds Eye papers in the lovely teal colours again!

 
The tree has been stamped and embossed in WOW Silver Bells embossing powder, as has the Reindeer and sentiment. I then added some Halo glitter around the edge of the sentiment which has been cut using a Spellbinder, some pee wee glitter to the trees, jewels to the reindeers antlers and shaved ice just below him.
 
To finish I've added a silky crush bow and a few rhinestone clusters.
 
Bye for now,

Pink for Christmas!

Hi All,

Here is another Christmas card today using the Starry Tree stamp.
 
 
This one is something completley different for me as I have never done a pink christmas card! The paper in the background is papermania from my stash. The tree has been stamped in Flitter Glu and then sprinked in Halo Glitter for a change from embossing, I then added some jewels to the tree and stamped and glittered the message in the same way. The snowflake are the Memory Box Bianca Snowflake die which I have cut on double sided sticky sheets and covered in Halo Glitter. I then added some rhinestone clusters to finish.
 
Hope you like it,
Chloe

Gold and Cream Star

Hi All,

Just a quick post today. This card was a real quick and easy one to make. The Twiggy Star has been stamped and embossed in WOW Metallic Gold Sparkle onto cream pearlescent card, I then added lots of dots of glue and added some Gold Halo glitter, I love love love this glitter it is so super sparkly and gived such a different look. The star has then been matted and layered onto some gold mirri card.


The flourish has also been stamped embossed and glittered in the same way. I then added  the Special Wish sentiment, a bow and some gold matting and layering.

Traditional Christmas

Hi All,

I'm back with a more traditional card today, this is another one I made whilst away demoing at the Manchester show.

 
This one again uses K&Co papers I am so in love with these this year!
The main feature of this card is the Poinsettia in the centre which has been made using my Large 3 Petal stamp. I have really matted and layered this one up!
 
Behind the flowers I have tucked some double ended berries dipped in micro beads, some glittering vines and bits from a green bead pick. The centre of the poinsettia has been glittered in gold glass glitter.
 
 
Bye for now,
Chloe

Icy Christmas

Hi All,

A completely different look today! For lots of Christmas cards this year I have been using some divine K&Co papers this one is such a lovely teal shade it just has to be the main part of the card! Whilst at Create and Craft for my last show, it was the Spellbinders pick of the day - I couldn't resist!! So this is one of the first cards I made using the dies I cut a Spellbinders die from the centre as an aperture and covered the background in micro beads for an icy look.

The borders on the edge of the card have been cut using the border die for the Venetian Accents set with a jewel added too! The centre piece was created using Decorative Labels 1, inked and layered with Lace Motifs, Venetian Motif and an inked circle with my let it snow sentiment in the centre.

The Reindeer was stamped and embossed in WOW silver super fine and covered in hairy glitter to give him an authentic look! I then added jewels to his antlers and nose.

 
To finish I added a silky crush bow and oval rhinestone cluster.
 
Hope you like it,
Bye for now,
Chloe
