Naughty or Nice?

Hi Bloggers.

I'm back off my little holiday. I had a lovely break. I will share what I made some time next week when I get chance to take some photos.

I managed to get all the website orders out yesterday afternoon. This afternoon I'm heading up to Sheffield ready for my demo day tomorrow at Phill Martin's shop. It's going to be fun!

Here's today's card -

For the background, I popped the Holly Mask onto a piece of Watercolour Card. I sprinkled aome Plum Twist CS Pixie Powder over and then spritzed with water. I removed the mask and put the background aside to dry. I cleaned the mask under a running tap.

I popped the Christmas Quilt Mask onto a piece of Coconut White Card. I spread CS Vivid Violet Sparkle Texture Paste through it, removed the mask and put aside to dry. Again, the texture paste cleans off the mask easily with water.

Once my backgrounds were dry, I trimmed the Holly Mask down a little and edged with Phill Martin CS Chic Aubergine Colour Cloud using a Smoothie. I cut the Sparkle Texture Paste background into strips, edged it with Chic Aubergine Colour Cloud and added a reindeer strip to my background. I matted onto Amethyst Card and added to a Coconut White Card Blank.

I stamped the sentiment from the Justrite Mini Tags Stamp Set onto Coconut White Card using Watering Can Archival. I ticked 'Naughty' using a Pigma Micron Pen and cut the sentiment out using Justrite Joy Oval Frame Dies. I edged with Chic Aubergine Colour Cloud. I cut the next sized die in the set out of Amethyst Card. I cut the largest die in the set out of Coconut White Card. I double embossed it using Clear Perfect Medium and CS Vivid Violet Brilliant Sparkle Embossing Powder.

I coloured a couple of Creative Expressions Star Swirl Embellishments with No.73 Blue Violet Graphmaster Pen.

  22. Hi Julia,
    Beautiful card, gorgeous colours.
    Really disappointed, I was so looking forward to seeing you at Sheffield tomorrow,(last time I saw you was at Samuel Taylor's in Leeds) but unfortunately my husband has just come out of hospital and I don't feel comfortable leaving him all day. He was very poorly had pneumonia and various other things but glad to say he is improving and feeling much better.
    Hopefully will see you in the not too distant future. Hope you have a brilliant day tomorrow.
    Love Janet x
