I must say I was inspired by Patty Bennett for this card and she has a great video tutorial on how to make a landscape version. As we don’t have snow in Australia at Christmas I decided to make this a night-time version and hence the sentiment of ‘Silent Night’. I’ve used Night of Navy, Garden Green and Versamark with Iridescent Ice Stampin’ Emboss Powder. I also had the help from a post it note for the moon and the… Read more »

So this card was a bit of a challenge as you know I’ve said before we don’t have snow in Australia at Christmas. However we may have some beautiful pine trees with sparkling dew on them? Yes? Well that’s what we tried to achieve with this card. We’ve actually stamped the trees 3 times and embossed once and then used Gorgeous Grunge to give us some beautiful gold sparkles. We also stamped the tree in two different colours on the… Read more »

This is the last of the cards from my October Card Class where the ladies concentrated on a technique. We used the Aqua Painters for all of the cards – 2 each of 3 designs. This one is just an alternate on one of the other cards they made. The image on this card was stamped with Tuxedo Memento Black and then the Aqua Painters did the work with reinkers. This time we turned the image so it was facing… Read more »

Alright we don’t have snow here in Australia at Christmas time. It’s usually horrendously hot and humid and sometimes we get awful summer storms. However, I want you to shut your eyes (after reading this of course) and imagine this: “Lots of twinkling stars and the night sky is dark blue and the moonlight shows Santa in his sleigh riding through the night sky.” It’s possible, isn’t it? OK I’m just a big kid at heart or ‘kidult’ as my… Read more »

This card was part of a Techniques Class I held in early October where the ladies make 6 cards with envelopes – 2 each of 3 designs. This class was using the Aqua Painter and Spritzer to make a water coloured look for the card. We used Shimmery White card and stamped with Versamark and then heat embossed with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and then used the Spritzer with water to spritz the whole image. We used various colours with… Read more »

This is one of the four cards we made in my recent Christmas Card Class. The ladies made 2 each of 4 designs so went home with 8 completed cards. Some had a few bits to finish as it was a full on 2 hour class with no down time. The ladies did enjoy it. Reason For The Season is a Photopolymer Stamp set which has many different stamps and one is like the veins of a leaf. We inked… Read more »

I made some of these a while back and decided to use up some more of the Timeless Elegance Designer Series Paper and some beautiful Butterflies which I already had cut out. It’s amazing the number of bits and pieces you collect as ‘left-overs’ and the creations you can make with them. This is such a card and would do for many different occasions. I’ve made this one as a birthday card. I used my all time favourite Butterfly Stamp… Read more »
