Christmas is only a few weeks away------where has this year gone, not only is Halloween with us but the rush to get all those Christmas things is here too.
The collaboration between Dreamweaver, Stampendous and Co-ordinations has definitely given me the chance to combine different techniques. So the project today has stamping and colouring with Aquarel pencils, dry embossing and sanding back and a basic paste technique.
The card is larger than I would normally do but for someone special it seems perfect.
Here is what I used:-
Stampendous Cling stamp CRS5055 Penguin Snow
Dreamweaver Stencils LS92 Merry Christmas, LJ819 Snow background
Sakura Aquarel Pencils
Stazon ink pad (Black)
Co-ordinations Card stock Turquoise, Dark Blue, White and pink glitter card stock
Stampendous Crystal Glitter
Quickie glue pen
Micron black pen
Low tack tape
Silver Embossing Paste
Self adhesive pearl gems
and this is how how made the card:-
Step 1 Stamp the image using Stazon Black ink pad on to white card, coloured with the Aquarel pencils, use Quickie glue pen to colour the brims of the hats and cover with Crystal glitter. Trim the panel. (I ripped the edges to reveal the inner core of the backing card)
Step 2 The top section of the turquoise co-ordinations card was embossed using Dreamweaver Snowflake background stencil and the Big Shot machine The surface was then sanded back to reveal the inner core of the card. A panel of the same card stock was attached to the bottom of the card. This was left as the original card.
Step 3 The Merry Christmas stencil was attached to a piece of the dark blue card stock using low tack tape and silver embossing paste applied. The stencil was removed and put into water for cleaning and the paste piece was placed to the side to dry.
Step 4 The final stage was putting the card together, wrapping ribbon round the spine of the card and putting the self adhesive pearls in the centre of the snowflakes, randomly on the stamped panel and in the 4 corners of the bottom segment.
