  2. From other end score at 2 3/8″ and 2 6/16″.
  3. Align Circle punch with second score line, centre and punch.
  4. Add Tear & Tape to inside bottom edge. Fold up and adhere after removing backing paper.
  5. Adhere glue dot to back of Chocolate coin and place in hole made by the circle punch. Place to the side.
  6. Stamp Santa face on Whisper White card stock with Momento ink. Use Pink Pirouette ink and blender pen to lightly colour Santa’s face. Carefully cut out the face.

  8. Using Momento black ink, stamp sentiment at top of tag.
  9. Place Santa face and hat on the tag, using dimensionals. I suggest using two dimensionals on top of each other under the hat and face.
  10. Cut a piece of Cherry Cobbler Silky Taffeta Ribbon 10″ long and fold in half. Thread through the top of the tag and either knot so it can hang or leave as a tie.

Home for Christmas

This card uses the emboss resist technique, where I clear heat embossed the snowflakes and then sponged over them with Lost Lagoon.  I have used the  blender pen with the ink pads to colour the trees and houses.  The sentiment is stamped in Mossy Meadow. The thread is Cherry Cobbler twine.

White Christmas Flowers

I like the new Reason for the Season stamp set and matching  Festive Flower Builder Punch.  I have used a Whisper White background and heat embossed with Gold. The sentiment comes from Embellished Ornaments and I finished with the leaves cut from the Gold Foil Sheets and framed with the 1/8″ Gold Ribbon.

Snowmen suffers in snowstorm

Oh dear, I knew what I wanted the card to look like, but I overdid the snow. To make a subtle card I used Smoky Slate and Encore Silver ink.  I like how the snowmen turned out, but I just put too many snowflakes around it. The snowman and snowflakes came from the Snow. Place stamp set and the two little birds are from Festival of Trees and Sprinkles of Life. I do think the Cherry Cobbler is a good colour to use as the contrast.  I am thinking I might order the Christmas Greetings Thinlit Dies and cut out the merry in Cherry Cobbler.  This might move the eye away from the snowstorm!  When it comes in I’ll post a before and after.

Quick catch up

I really am pretty slack at putting up posts, but can I say it is because I am busy?  Maybe it has been 2 months, about 10 weeks, gosh just the length of the school term!  That’s right, the only time I get to write is during the school holidays. So I am going to post a few pics of the cards that I have made during the last few weeks.

This evening I have made a couple of pretty little birthday cards.

Happy Birthday

Butterfly's and Blooms

Blooms, Butterfly’s and Birthday’s

I have used a colour palette of Mossy Meadow, Rose Red, Elegant Eggplant and So Saffron. The second card’s flowers have been stamped off, to give a more pastel tone. The stamp sets are: Butterfly Basics, Flower Patch, World of Dreams, Papillon Potpourri, Kinda Eclectic and Gorgeous Grunge.  The flowers are hand cut so as to make them a little smaller and I have used the Bitty Butterfly Punch, Elegant Butterfly Punch and Washi Label Punch. To finish off I added pearls and rhinestones.

Wish I could be at the convention!

I am very thankful that I have access via the Internet to some of the South Pacific Convention. Wish I could be there, but circumstances mean no.  So I have stamped this weekend to make up for it.
