Week 9 Christmas Card

Star Bright
This weeks theme is Star Bright.  I used the Aurora Star dies by Sue Wilson, cutting just the fancy piece on the background, then I cut with the outline die in gold card and another using both the fancy die and the outline at the same time.  I creased gently along the centre of the points and glued them together.  I then attached the star with glue gel just to add a bit of dimension. 

I forgot to upload......

..... my weekly Christmas cards, so here they are from week 4 to week 8.
Week 4 Recycle
I thought I'd struggle with this one, but while rummaging through my stash I found this lovely snowflake which I removed from a Christmas card we received a couple of years ago, how lucky was that.... lol.  All I needed to do was give it a nice embossed background and mount it onto the card blank. 

Week 5 - Christmas Presents
I inked up the background with Distress Inks and gave it a splash of water, which I then dabbed up with tissue, this removed the ink and leaves white splash marks.  I stamped the cat, hat and presents and coloured them with Zigs, then cut them out and added them to the card.  I finished off by stamping the fish decorations and the sentiment.  All stamps are by Tim Holtz.

Week 6 - Gatefold Card
I used a stamp by Penny Black for the Poinsettias, coloured with Zigs, mounted it up onto a die cut oval and added a few sequins.  The sentiment is computer generated.

Week 7 - Red & Silver
The tree stamp is from Stampin Up, Lovely as a Tree set, which I heat embossed and added some gems.  I finished off with a couple of die cut corners and a die cut sentiment.

                                                                Week 8 - Jingle Bells

                 Stamps for this one are from a set by Sheena Douglass, and coloured with Zigs.

The Flower Challenge - CASE

This months challenge over on The Flower Challenge the theme is 'CASE' which means Copy and Share Everything.  So basically taking inspiration from.

I've had dies since I first starting card making and never used them in this way.  You simply place the die cut back into the card, with a coloured background behind.  The piece I used was a background I made a while ago with Alcohol Inks.  I'm glad I finally got to use it.  The die is by Memory Box.

Altenew Stamps

These stamps are from the Persian Motifs set by Altenew and coloured again with Zig Markers.  I stamped in Versamark and heat embossed in white.  Finished off with a few gems and a sentiment from a different set of stamps, not sure who they're by.

A Bit of Sheena

I've had this stamps for a few years now and it's been inked up...... I think I may have too many flower stamps and I still buy more....... lol.  I have always had a passion for stamps of any kind, but flowers have always been my favourite.
Anyway, this lovely Magnolia stamp is by Sheena Douglass and I've coloured it with Zig Brush Markers (I love them).  The sentiment is from another stamp set but I don't know who it's by.  I finished of with a border die by Cheery Lynn and some gems in the corner.
Thanks for looking xx
