Snowflakes.

Good afternoon, from what i hear and see from photos some of you are getting some of the white stuff, I love the snow, but I do understand it causes a lot of disruption for so many people stay safe and keep warm..  I have stamped  a little cutie hedgie from Penny Black, coloured him with promarkers, I stamped some snowflakes in white onto the blue square background but as they dried they seemed to fade away, I added a snowflake corner and a couple of snowflakes dies to the other corner. The white background I embossed using the fallen snow embossing folder from Stampin up

Festive Greetings

Hi there, I have been messing about this morning thought I would get my ink pads out and have a go at making some snow banks, there not perfect but I was quite pleased with the result, this was the best out of four or five lol.  The  birds and trees stamps are from card-io stamps, the sentiment is an old Woodware stamp, I stamped a penny  Black snowman and coloured him with promarkers and added some glitter. I love this time of year and because it snowed  at home yesterday it inspired me to use one of my favourite colours and make this snowy scene.

MERRY CHRISTMAS

Hope you all have had a lovely weekend, as for me I am full of cold so no more said.lol 
 I  wanted to do something different from the norm for me, so I had another go at the heat resistant technique I think you call it, in the past I have not had much success with this technique. The poinsettia stamp is from Penny black Wonder Collection that I stamped with a Versa Mark ink pad and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder, then I rubbed  it all over with love letter memento ink pad, I added a bit of yellow to the middles of the poinsettias, then I thought I would paint over it all With distress crackle paint, I don’t think it worked as I can not see much crackle lol, I have had the bottle of crackle for some time so it might be no good, but it has left a lovely all over  finish to my card. I cut two oval shapes from Tonic, one in mirror gold card and one from a bit I had left over from my background and stamped it with Merry Christmas also from Penny black.

The snowmen stamp is from Little Claire’s which I coloured with promarkers, and added some glitter to the inside of the frame, , also used is fallen snow embossing folder and spellbinders marvelous squares.
