Have A Gift Christmas

Morning all!


Another miserable day here in Glasgow!

Here is today's make!

Topper is a Forever Friends stamp inked with Momento ink which was then coloured with Promarkers.

I used Wild Orchid Crafts flowers and fabric flowers as embellishments in the corners with a hint of the DoCrafts golden berries to add some warmth.

I had some of the blue twine which I used instead of ribbon and the sentiment was edge distressed with the tim holtz tool.

Glossy accents was used to cover the candi dots and the edges of the image for decoration!

Snow Lady Christmas

Good morning everyone!!

How are we all today?

I thought I would share my latest creation with you all.

I bought this lovely and adorable stamp from NGCards and I thought that it was about time she was getting used!

The card has been layered with vellum papers and normal paper, embellished with some coloured twine I found lying around one of the embellishment boxes, wild Orchid Crafts flowers and candi dots.
The flowers in the lower left corner are left from Mum's stash and are made of fabric. I have no clue where she got them from!

The image was stamped in Momento ink and coloured with Promarkers.

Christmas at Night

Today's make so far!

This one in my head was a simple idea and I suppose it is, but all the faffing with making a circular aperture card was just irritating!

Worth it though!

Have a look :)

The night sky was done using Inkylicious brushes with Momento and Distress inks with mountain templates.
The image was then stamped with tinted embossing ink and then heat embossed with Heat It Up Silver powder.

The patterned paper on the front section was from a Christmas signature series linen paper pack by DC and was mounted on a piece of card for extra strength as I wanted it sitting out in a 3d effect from the background.

Silver peel offs were used as an accent and then the Wild Orchid Crafts flowers were added and highlighted with diamond dust as a snow effect and the sentiment was stamped from an Inkylicious stamp set in Versafine Ink, The edges of the sentiment were distressed with the Tim Holtz paper distress tool I reviewed before (see tutorials in the menu above).

I added some sparkles with some sticky jewels at the center of the snowflakes and used some of the paper Candi dots with Anita's Glossy Accents to look like brads.

Various papers used and perfect pearls also.

Winter Wonderland

I have been having another play around with my distress and momento inks with my Inkylicious brushes and I am impressed.
I don't think I will use the brayer again!!

The brushes give you far much more control over details of where you want your colours placed.
I had made cards of similar looks using the brayer before, but it was always a bit hit or miss, whereas this? It works everytime!

Inks Used: Distress and Momento.
Brushes: Inkylicious
Stamps: Inkylicious Winter Wonderland.

Thankk you DC for My Freebie!

DC sent me out a freebie as  a thank you for making my video tutorials on the new forums and site navigation!

I am so pleased that they have been paying attention to not only me, but other people and their efforts to improve the site!

So, now to dig out the cuttlebug and have a play!

Inkylicious Brushes and Sunset

Having another play around with my Inkylicious brushes with distress inks and momento inks!
I love this stamp from Inkylicious!
I had to have a go at creating something like this just to see how it would go.

I am quite pleased with it apart from the way I lined up the bottom of the stamp with the bottom of the inked circle behind for the sunset.

Will need to revisit this one I think!
