Last night was daylight savings here in the UK, so I decided to put it to good use once The Beans were settled in bed last night and made a whole bunch of Christmas cards!
Did you see yesterday’s post HERE? The October 2019 Post Release Brand Ambassador Blog Hop & GIVEAWAY is in full swing. And just by commenting along the hop you have the chance of winning the ENTIRE release 😉
I was a little sad that I didn’t get time to make all the cards before my post went live, so last night I set to making a couple of those I intended to make. First up a card using the new Stencil – Winter Foliage…
I had an idea to do a lot of masking and ink up the stencil with a couple of shades of brown, green and red to create this beautiful background. The layout of my card was inspired by the Freshly Made Sketches layout seen HERE and below.
To finish the card I added one of the Festive Sentiments Outlined sentiments and added some Nuvo Drops in Autumn Red to the single berries in the design. The card was pretty time consuming, but I really like the results.
Lastly for today I have a card using the Designer Die Winter Foliage Collection. This card was a little quicker to make, but again I’m loving the end result.
I decided to use the same sentiment and this time coloured it with a black fine liner instead of red. I then die cut the berries and holly leaves from my panel. To stamp the coordinating images from Winter Foliage clear stamp set, I temporarily adhered the panel to my base card and placed this inside my MISTI.
I was then able to position the stamps to stamp perfectly inside the die cuts. Once stamped I then adhered the panel permanently with foam adhesive.
That’s all I have to share for today, but I will be back during the week with more! Until then, thank you for stopping by today.
