I MADE THIS CARD FOR MY PODITRIST FOR HER NEW YEAR, DECIDED TO MAKE NEW YEAR ONE AS I DIDNT SEE HER FOR XMAS. I USED HEAVY WIGHT CARD WHICH I SHADDOWED USIN GLIMMER CHALKS, THEN APPLIED LAYERS OF RECENTLY ACQUIRED PAPERS FROM QVC, I USED A BORDER PUNCH TO DECORATE EDGES, I THEN ATTACHED A DECOUPAGED FAIRY TO THE CARD, AND MATTED AND LAYERED THE MESSAGE, APPLYING WITH 3D FOAM. FINISHED OFF WITH PEEL OFF CORNERS
THIS IS A FAT PAGE FOR LESLEY'S 3X3 SWAP, HERE I STAMPED MY RENNIE MACKINTOSH IMAGE TWICE ONTO GLOSS PAPER, EMBOSSING WITH SILVER EMBOSSING POWDER. I THEN COLOURED ONE USING H20 PAINTS AND CUT ROUND IMAGE. ON THE SECOND I APPLIED MOON GLOW STARBURST STAINS WHICH I THEN DRIED USING HEAT GUN. THE IMAGE I CUT AROUND I THEN ATTACHED 3D FOAM AND APPLIED TO TOP OF OTHER IMAGE. THE FAT PAGE ITSELF I COVERED IN BLACK CARD AND SHADDOWED USING GOLD RUB/BUFF CREAM. I THEN TOOK SMALL FLORAL BORDER AND COLOURED USING H20 THEN RUNNING THRU XYRON CREATE-A-STICKER MACHINE WHICH I THEN STUCK DOWN. I LOVE USING THE MOON GLOW STAINS. LOVE THE EFFECT IT GIVES.
I HAVE USED HERE THE EMBOSSING PASTE. THIS IS MY FIRST ATTEMPT AT USING THIS FORM OF EMBOSSING. I TRIED TO PRODUCE A WOODLAND SCENE WITH SUN BEHIND THE BARE TREES. I HOPE THE RECIPIENT OF THIS PAGE GETS THE IDEA. I ADDED SOME GLITTER TO SOME OF THE BRANCHES TRYING TO CREATE I WINTER SCENE.
I USED A LARGE LEAFE/FOLIAGE BACKGROUND STAMP APPLYING DIFFERENT SHADES OF GREEN INK, DOUBLE EMBOSSED USING ULTRA THINCK CLEAR EMBOSSING POWDER. I THEN STAMPED SEPERATE IMAGE, COLOURED IN USING CHALKS AND SAKURA GLITTER GEL PENS. I THEN DOUBLE EMBOSSED THIS IMAGE USING SAME EMBOSSING POWDER.

I wanted to include this little ATC in my first blog pages, this village scene i decoupaged i then used glow in the dark gel to highlight the windows and street lights. so that when viewed in the dark it would glow. i reacently made a christmas card using the same tecnique using the gel in the lamp post of the card. but this ATC was the first time i had thought about using the glow in the dark gel. of all my xmas ATCs this one was the most asked for.
This is the little birdies New Year Card i made for my brother. i felt by using the birds rather than the obligatory christmas scene i wanted to create something which symbolised new beginnings. ie new growth. i used the corner punch to decorate edge of pearlised card which i then embossed with background design. i chalked the card using glimmer chalks. applied peel off corners and New Year Wording. i used the same pearlised card and attached the name which i then layered with mirri card and attached using 3d foam. to give a raised affect. i enjoyed making this wee card. hope my brother likes it.
This is the inside of the little birdie New Year card i made for one of my brothers. i used the Xcut corner punch, removing the side bars to enable me to punch around the paper. i overlapped the paper slightly at each end as the paper was two toned, being darker blue on the reverse. I never ever used corner punches before, that is before i knew you could remove those little side bars. love em! love em, love em.
