Christmas 4

I thought I would share this card on the Merry Monday 267 Colour combo Challenge as I realised my card matched the brief:

Here is my card:
The background is green and blue water colour, the die is cut from silver glitter card and the sentiment is printed on velum.

Here are a couple more versions in different colour ways just for interest:

Thank you very much for visiting my page. I really appreciate it.

Christmas 3

Today I am sharing my little reindeer card. The reindeer was die cut from watercolour card that I had coloured and then spritzed with silver paint to give it a shine. The background and frame are cut from very sparkly non shed glitter paper  and the antlers are adorned with red and green seed beads.

I hope you like it:

Unfortunately the shine does not come through on the pictures.

Christmas 2

I have a second card that I am entering in the Addicted to CAS Bows challenge. Here it is:

The green die cut holly leaf has been inked with 2 shades of green pigment ink and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder. This was repeated 3 times to get the depth of colour and shine. The holly leaves are only attached to the cats at their base to create some shadow on the base card. The bow has been heat embossed 3 times as well. I added the sentiment as an afterthought as I felt the white space just needed something.

This card is my second entry to the following challenge:

Christmas 1

I have just seen that it is 3 months since I last did a post, how time flies. My long gap is because I have had some work done on my house including a new kitchen, but the main reason is because I had to empty my craft room to have some new shelves put in and it has just taken forever to get sorted and now Christmas is looming up so I am trying to get focused.

I saw the Bows challenge on addicted to CAS and thought I would enter this card:

I hope that it is not too fussy to be classed as clean and simple. I have been enjoying the effect created by multiple layer embossing. The bow has been inked with pigment ink and embossed with clear embossing powder. I think I did 3 layers, I love the shine it creates. The die cut bauble is also embossed with versamark and clear embossing powder but it does not show very well on the photo.

Overall I am quite pleased with this one.
