Winter Firs .........



A Christmas card in different colours again.  I chose a 5 x 5 inch white card blank as the base and matted this with a piece of blue and pink spotty paper (edged with black ink).




The fir trees (Time Holtz) were diecut from white card and applied with one flat and one raised on foam pads.  These were embellished with Stickles glitter glue.

I then diecut the deer from Kraft cardstock and used another die cut down to embellish his neck with some silver glitter card before mounting on foam pads. He was then applied over the trees as shown supporting the head end with more foam pads.




The sentiment (Papertrey Ink) was stamped in Versafine black ink on white card, trimmed out and again mounted on foam pads to finish. I just love those trees !!

Hi There.  I recently posted that the old Bulletin Board called 'UK Stampers Forum' has been discontinued.  I have, just today, started a Closed Facebook Group with the same name.

If you were a member previously please join the group so that we may continue and if you would like to join as a new member please also join.

Click HERE to go to the Group.  Looking forward to a good response so that we may continue the good work !

Deck The Halls .......



I do like different colours on Christmas cards !

This card has a white square 5.5 x 5.5 inch card base and I have matted some greyish coloured paper onto this.  I then made another mat with some more printed paper with some words this time and applied this to a piece of silver mirri card.  This was then applied as shown on foam pads.




I then diecut a deer in sparkly glitter card (does not show up very well in the photo).




I gave him a necklace of red twine before applying him over the mat to finish.  Not much colour but I think it looks good !

Let It Snow ......



Who said pink wasn't Christmassy?  This card uses slightly less traditional colours for a change.  I started with a 6.6 inch white card blank and matted over this with Pink textured card and a slightly smaller pink & black spotty paper.




I then applied a stripey paper in matching colours as shown.  The wreath was stamped on white card with Versamark ink and heat embossed with glossy black embossing powder.  This was then trimmed out with a craft knife and the berries on the wreath coloured with a pink Posca marker before mounting on foam pads.




Final touch was to diecut the words 'Let It Snow' in black card and stick in place.

Deer, Deer !!



Another simple Christmas card as I ramp up the crafting process.  This year I am determined to make all my own cards ....... a feat never accomplished in other years.

I started with a 5.5 x 5.5 inch white card blank and applied a strip of Washi tape as shown (mainly to 'ground' the deer).

I next chose an old PaperArtsy greetings stamp and stamped this on a scrap of white card in Versafine black ink.  This was trimmed out and edged in more black ink and applied on foam pads.




The deer was then diecut from Kraft card and stuck in place as shown.




I then edged the card with a hand drawn squiggly frame with a black Micron pen and applied some self adhesive crystals to finish.

We Three Trees !



Another recent and simple Christmas card I have made.  I started with a 5.5 x 5.5 inch white card blank and matted a smaller piece of Kraft card onto this.

I used a scrapbook frame with the word Noel and applied this as shown.




The Trees (Paper Artsy) were stamped out on Lawn Fawn plaid papers in black Memento ink and trimmed out before applying on foam pads as shown.




There you have it !
