12 weeks of Christmas – Week 6

12 weeks w6

I’m a day late with my post this week, my apologies, work got in the way of creating, how rude!!

So this week, I was inspired by the Flurry of Wishes stamp set. This comes with a matching punch which I love!! Anything that saves me cutting out, is a great idea!! Although having said that, I did do some hand cutting on this weeks’ card.

This stamp set always makes me think of snow and snowflakes, so I decided to go with Pool Party as my base card. I used the music paper from Home for Christmas DSP. If you look closely at the paper, the music and words are for Silent Night.

I stamped the largest snowflake in Pool party on the dsp and then stamped the next sized down snowflake in versamark on vellum and used a mix of white embossing powder and dazzling diamonds over the top. I put a few layers of the powder mix on to make it more sparkly. It looks very sparkly in real life. I then hand cut them out, wishing there was a matching framelit!!

I then used the same mix of embossing powder and dazzling diamonds to stamp the sentiment on pool party cardstock. I cut it out with the Project Life – paper clips thinlits.

I added a Snowflake Element and put a pearl in the centre of the 3 snowflakes for a touch of glamour. I’m very happy with the sparkly result!! We won’t talk about the sparkly desk. hehe!!

GDP#006 – All about the angles

I always look forward to seeing what challenge is up at Global Design Project each Monday. Then I spend the next few days working out what to make.

Well this week, I was making a card for my monthly stamp club class on this coming Saturday and my lovely friend, Emma at Vintage Graffiti, suggested with a few tweaks, my card would suit this week’s challenge.

So I tweaked it and here we are!! I was inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest where a white gel pen was used to highlight the leaves on the Lighthearted Leaves stamp set. I wanted the focus to be the Garden Green tree so I stamped the background tree on the Real Red cardstock with Real Red ink.

I then stamped the tree using the new Basic Black ink and cut out using the matching Leaflets framelits (try saying that fast!!). I then highlighted the petals using the Stampin’ Chalk marker.

I then assembled it all together and added a banner using the stamp from the Flurry of Wishes set and my favourite punch, Banner triple punch.

I think it’s kinda cute!!

I’d love to hear what you think, so please leave me a comment below.

Update – I’m excited to share that this card was chosen as a winner for this challenge!! Excited much!! Thank you so much, GDP!!!
