It's a present

 
Hi! It's Georgina with my Friday post.
 
Today I have two quick Christmas card ideas to share with you. Both cards are Christmas presents, using ribbon or patterned papers for the bow. For both cards I used a 119x199mm scallop edge card blank.
 

For the first card I used Hobby House Stripe for the present and Red cascading patterned papers. For the present I cut a square 8x8cm. The stripes of paper for the bow were 12x1cm. I attached two strips across the present square. 
 

I folded one strip for the loop part of the bow and added this to the card with two smaller pieces for the bow tails. I stamped a sentiment from This way for Christmas stamp set by Anna Marie Designs. To finish I added a mini flower to the bow and small dots with a black fineliner pen around the edge of the card.
 

For the second card I again cut a 8x8cm square. I used Stripe patterned paper from Hobby House. I used strips of red ribbon for the bow.
 

For the tag I used I stamped a sentiment from This way for Christmas stamp set. To finish I added small red dots around the edge of the card.

Holly Ring Wreath


Today I have a card to show you made using the  
 
 I stamped the image on to Hobby House Rich red snowflake flurries paper, Kraft Card
 and a piece of green card using Versafine Black Onyx.
The image stamped on red was my base layer which I cut away to give me the overall ring shape.
Next I layered the outside ring section cut away from Kraft card piece and glued this down.
The Holly leaves were cut, shaped and layered using foam pads to give dimension.
Lastly I cut the berries from the red paper and glued these in place.
I added the string hanger and bow and some accents with Liquid Pearls and Stickles around the ring and on the berries.



 
to edge the two side of the card.
The greeting is stamped from the Woodware Clear Magic Winter Trees stamp set.
 



Thanks for looking today, we appreciate any comments you leave, crafty hugs xKx

Little and Large.....



Good morning all and wishing you a great Wednesday.....

Today I wanted to show you a couple of cards using robins one of my favourite Christmas themes....
For the first one I used Woodware Clear Magic Tweet Birds and this is a lovely set and although I have made it a robin you could incorporate this set in to other stamps and make the birds in to different birds during the year......


I simply stamped the image in Versafine Black Onyx and embossed it with Wow Clear Sparkle powder and then stamped the image on to Kraft Card and a red and white spotty paper and then paper pieced the image......


I drew a base with a black fine liner and then used some Fluffy Stuff  and heated it with my heat gun to create a snow effect on the base of the card.....
I finished by adding some highlights with a white pen and then matting and layering on to my card using some black card and co-ordinating paper. I also stamped messages top and bottom from the Little Red Robin Stamp Set that I used for the second card......


For the next card I used as I said the Woodware Clear Magic Little Red Robin stamp set.......


Again I love this plump little robin, he is so cute and I love the patchwork look about him and he too is great for paper piecing.....

I done exactly the same as the first card but this time added an extra layer on the wing and 3d'd it. I also added some Tumbled Glass Distress Ink around the top of the card lightly to add some sky and some Red Stickles to the berries......

You can see the dimension of the wing at this angle........


Well that is all for today, thank you for visiting the blog and please leave us a comment as we love to read them.....
I will be back on Saturday with my regular post....

Big hugs Lisa.B.xx

Silky & Sparkly


Good morning crafters, thanks for visiting the blog today.

My focal image on today's card was initially meant to be a test piece, but I liked the result so much I had to use it..................


 
 

I brayered three horizontal stripes of Imagination Crafts' Silkies - Silver Satin, Denim Lace &
 Blue Brocade - onto watercolour card. I wanted some of the white base to show through, so I made sure to use only small amounts of paint..............



I stamped the Woodware Clear Magic Forest stamps over the paint with Onyx Black Versafine & heat set with WOW Clear embossing powder..........

 
 
 Then I brayered Diamond Sparkle Medium over the trees & the paint...........
 
(Remember to put your brayer in water immediately after using Sparkle Medium)
 

 
 
I built up layers of black & a soft purple core'dinations card stock & added some gems, a Hobby House brad & a piece of chiffon ribbon from my stash...............
