CCM #247 Christmas

It’s our final challenge for 2019 over on the Crafty Cardmakers blog and unsurprisingly we have chosen a seasonal theme of Christmas.

I made my cards with the lovely reindeer stamp from Studiolight. I created a background with distress oxides onto a glass mad, added water and smooshed it onto the card.

I then stamped the reindeer in black archival ink, and added a sentiment from Claritystamp. I created the snow by scattering loosely some shabby white embossing powder from Stampendous.

The second picture is the same idea but obviously the colours are slightly different on this one as you cannot predict where the ink will go!

These were a part of my theme this year, and once I created the backgrounds I just lined up the stamp in my stamp press so that it would appear in the same place on each background and stamped away, likewise with the sentiment.

Rather than wasting black card to mat and layer, after trimming out the stamped background, I simply went round with a black copic pen to create a border.

DV #215 Christmas

Our challenge today at Dream Valley and through to January 6th is Christmas. We have three fabulous sponsors this time around, All Dressed Up 2 Digi Stamps, Di’s Digi Stamps with a $12 gift certificate, Dies to Die For £15 voucher, Fabrika Fantasy 3 Digi Stamps and Polkadoodles 3 Digi Stamps.

My Christmas card uses a Sue Wilson Christmas Angel Die from 2017. This is a 2 die set that cuts a star background and a separate die for the angel herself. I die cut her from pearlescent paper. the background was made with white card which I added Pixie Dust powders to and spritzed with water and then I die cut the background die from it and overlayed the whole thing over some holographic silver card. The sentiment is a stamp from my stash and embossed in silver embossing powder.

I made several of the same design, but of course the backgrounds are all slightly different as you cannot make the pixie powders go where you want them! The picture above is just 4 of them in a line.

I am entering this into:-
