Four For Christmas

Sorry I have not posted for a while, I have my Son Karim, Daughter in Law Rimal and 7 month old Granddaughter Sofia over from Dubai, it is so wonderful having them here.

It was a unanimous decision that we do Christmas cards at our next workshop on the 23rd August, so I hope you like these girls. There is lots of glitter and some brayering and embossing too.

I have used one of the new colours Rich Razzleberry for this card with its matching ribbon. I stamped the tree from Wondrous Gift stamp set and embossed it in Gold. The tree and gift are from Darling Dots one of the hostess gifts, once finished I added a touch of glitter (I do love glitter)

Card Stock used for this card is Bordering Blue and Whisper White. The background behind the tree is brayered using Bordering Blue Ink. The tree has been punched out with the scallop circle punch in Old Olive card stock.
I have used the Signo Pen to make the snow flakes and of course added lots of glitter
Bashful Blue, Night of Navy and Whisper White card stock for this card,.
This time I have brayered with Bashful Blue ink. Then stamped Dasher in the centre. The sentiment comes from the Tiny Tags stamp set
Finally I have used Night of Navy and Whisper White card stock and Serene Snowflakes stamp set for this card. Around the main navy snowflake ( which I have added glitter) I have stamped smaller snow flakes using the Platinum Shimmer Paint and once again lots of glitter. If you add glitter quite quickly when you stamp with shimmer paint, little bits of glitter will stick to the image, it looks really pretty. Unfortunately it doesn't show up in the photo.

I hope you like them all, Thank you for visiting my blog.
