Hope you all had a fab weekend. My mojo is still missing so this is the only card I did over the weekend, so now I have a lot of catching up to do during the week, but i don't know about you girls but my craft room looks like a bomb has dropped in it and I really need a good couple of weeks having a good sort out and making it organised and tidy. Mind you, when I tidy up and then craft I can never find anything and find it totally frustrating. I am pleased to say that the rest of the house is nothing like my craftroom, thank goodness, lol!
I have used the gorgeous "Tammy" today, and I have made my first christmas card of 2011, woo hooooo. I did promise myself that I would be more organised this year and start early so I am really proud of myself. Although I think Tammy has many uses and can be used for a winter birthday or scroll down to see Erica's fabby idea.
My colour choice has been guided by my papers, which are all digital, aren't they gorgeous.
Panels have been machine stitched with zig zag stitching. I added the little "Let it snow sentiment" to the snow at the bottom of the page.
I cut out the little image and snowman so that I could position them on the page. I have added star dust stickles to the snow as I do like a sparkly snowman. I have used paint puff on Tammys bobble on her hat and pom poms on her scarf and heated this with my heat gun to make it puffy.
Lots of texute on this card. I have cut out snowflakes using spellbinders and a Martha Stewart punch in cardstock and accetate and added Twinkles Diamond Dust to the accetate snowflakes. Love these. They look like tiny crystals and really resemble snowfalkes.
I have stamped out the sentiment and then stamped with a versamark pad all over the cardstock and then added transparent embossing powder so the sentiment sparkles tremendously and kind of has a hint of lilac when catching the light, guess that's because its irridescent, lol. I was going to start this post saying this was a simple card for me but I have used several techniques, but they all add to the overall feel of the card I think.
So put it altogether and this is what you get:-
And below are the copics I used.
Coloured with copics and no prismas this time!
