5 Weeks to Christmas

This week I've used all sorts of tools and techniques! Maybe I went a little overboard????? What do you think?
The main part is the medallion stamp in the middle. I have used the emerging colour technique for this one using the Merry Christmas greeting from Contempo Christmas and the swirl from Baroque Motifs on a Whisper White card. Then you stamp the medallion image in versa mark and emboss it clear over the top of your images. You simply apply colour over the top of this either with sponging or brayering and you're left with this multi layered and coloured image.
I cut the medallion out and cut it in half, then adhered it to the Olive Card.
Other features include the sponging around the edges in Olive, versa mark background using one of the small flourishes from the Tiny Tags set, polka dot ribbon and the greeting from Many Merry Messages.

6 Weeks to go!

Hi all! Oh these weeks are flying by. Half way there! O.K so this week I have again reached for my favourite set for this year, Contempo Christmas. It is really getting a work out and at only $26.95 it is such great value. I have used two of our current In Colors, Poppy Parade and Pear Pizzazz. I just love that you can now get markers in the In Colors. I have made use of them here to multi colour both the tree stamp and the greeting before stamping. The DS paper is from the Level 1 hostess pack which has patterned papers in all 5 In Colors. One last thing in case you're wondering- the scalloped border. I made this using my Square scallop punch. I cut up the square to just use 3 of the sides and lined them up along side each other to make the border. This creates a nice smaller border. I think I'll be making a whole stack of these this year. This card was so quick to make. Hope you like it!

7 Weeks to go!

This week I have a NON-TRADITIONAL Christmas card for you. This layout was used originally as a birthday card for a friend, in purple & vanilla but I thought by adding a Xmas greeting it could also work as a lovely Christmas card.
The colours are Baja Breeze and the new Concord Crush. The stamp set is Vintage Vogue. Notice how I have used markers on the top right hand corner to get the multi coloured effect, then with versa mark and clear embossing I have used the same image down in the left hand corner. The greeting comes from one of our new Christmas stamp sets, Contempo Christmas.
The vanilla piece is my favourite new toy, the Top Note die for the Big Shot. In one easy step the die cuts out this shape flawlessly and also does the border of fine holes to give this piece an instant look of elegance. Keep a look out for a post on here soon where I show a variety of ways you can use this die.
Till next week,
Happy Stamping,
