Seasons Greetings

Hi Bloggers.

Here's another demo that I didn't get to do on C&C -

For the background, I stamped the Newsprint Holly A6 Background using Perfect Medium. I brushed Bright Holly Mica Powder from the  Cosmic Shimmer Festive Brights Mica Spray Set all over. I removed the excess mica powder using a dry wet wipe. I edged the background with a little Malachite Cosmic Shimmer Shimmer Paint using Cut n Dry Foam.

I masked off the image panel on the Seasons Greetings Stamp, 'inked' up the top section of the stamp using Malachite Shimmer Paint and stamped onto Coconut White Card. I cut it out using a Spellbinders Romantic Rectangles Two Die.

I 'inked' up the bottom section of the Believe Stamp using Malachite Shimmer Paint (there was no need to mask as I was going to be cutting it out by hand) and stamped onto Coconut White Card. I covered with a piece of Creative Expressions Double Sided Adhesive Sheet and added Cosmic Shimmer Diamond Sprinkles.

I cut a piece of Rich Green Card using Spellbinders Grand Squares. I ran it through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Poinsettia Lullaby Embossing Folder. I then rubbed Malachite Shimmer Paint all over using Cut n Dry Foam.

I added a piece of Creative Expressions Double Sided Adhesive Sheet to a piece of Coconut White Card and cut 2 trees using Spellbinders 2013 Holiday Tree Die Set. I removed the backing and added Cosmic Shimmer Glacier Ice.

I assembled the card as shown adding some White Pearls to the corners and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Holly Sparkle PVA around the edges.

I'll be back tomorrow with a sneak peek from Thursday's shows.

Thanks for stopping by.

  21. Well to get over the problem of not getting to do demos on shows, you will have to stop making such great samples that get people to buy the items, that then sell out!
