The Snow Cards

Helloooooooo!!  As promised here are the Snow cards with those Distress Ink backgrounds.
 I think out of all the cards that I did this is my favourite colour scheme which was Tumbled Glass and Weathered Wood. Once again the huge Snow word was painted with FlitterGlu and Crystal glitter was then popped over the top. For the snowflake I just added Silver Stickles.

Then as you can see I had once again stamped IndigoBlu's Frosted Baubles with FlitterGlu and gilded it - just love this effect!!

And here is the other Snow card this time with Dusty Concord added to the Tumbled Glass.

And of course those Frosted Baubles again gilded with leafing flakes.

I'm really hoping that I might get chance to make some of these as my Christmas Cards for this year!!

Oh and just a bit of news to share.........................I am now proud to announce that I am an Accredited Spectrum Noir Colourist!!

More Snow and Santa cards!

Here are some more Christmas cards using the huge Santa stamp again by Francoise - this time with Distress Inkpad backgrounds for a totally different look to the last posting.

Background for the above card was achieved using Victorian Velvet and Seedless Preserves Distress inks. The Santa wording was stamped onto one of the  Silent Night First Edition papers and then coloured with Copics. Dies are Memory Box.

As you can see when the card catches the light I have used IndigoBlu's Frosted Baubles stamp with FlitterGlu and gilding flakes.

This time Milled Lavender and Dusty Concord were used for the background. Santa was painted with FlitterGlu and Crystal glitter sprinkled over the top and then coloured with Copics.

Then as you can see when the card catches the light Frosted Baubles has been stamped with FlitterGlu again and gilded.

I'll be back in a few days time to show you the Snow ones with Distress ink backgrounds.

The time has come!!

Well I can't put it off any longer and I have now got to think about what design I am going to do for this years Christmas cards so with that thought in mind I thought I'd share some Christmas cards that I have made in previous years for demos/classes etc....

So to start it off I thought I'd share this one that I made last year for The Glitter Pot's Christmas Spectacular using one of Francoise's huge wording stamps along with some Memory Box dies and some pretty patterned paper that came from an 8x8 First Edition paper pad called Silent Night.

I edged the card with some leafing flakes using FlitterGlu as the adhesive which when it catched the light really sparkles.

 And here's another card using the same patterned paper but another of Francoise's huge words.

I painted the wording with FlitterGlu and then sprinkled over crystal glitter then coloured with Copics.
I also used IndigoBlu's bauble stamp which was stamped with FlitterGlu and gilded with leafing flakes.

I just love these huge wording stamps - they make such great statement Christmas cards!!
All materials used on these cards can be bought from The Glitter Pot.
I'll be back with some more cards showing these stamps very soon!!!
