'Lovely as a Tree' vintage style.

I wanted to use 'Lovely as a Tree' for one of my Christmas cards. I needed to keep it simple but wanted it to be classy. I have gone for a vintage style in crumb cake, soft suede and early expresso. 

I was happy with this, I love the little bit of glitter on the tree, not too much, just enough but... it needed something else, ribbon but how....
I decided to add a layer of vellum. I added the ribbon and stamped the sentiment with gold ink.

I do think this is a classic card.

This is one of the cards we are making next Tuesday afternoon. Message me if you would like to join us.

Seasonal Catalogue Stamp n Hop blog-hop.

This is my first time joining the Stamp n Hop so I hope my projects are up to the mark.

A few weeks ago I was fortunate to win a prize draw within a group I belong to. I received the Spirited Snowmen stamp set in the post. I was excited as it wasn't a set I had set my heart on, but I love a challenge. Today I have three cards for you. One very simple, one with a bit of a twist and one that my regular skilled monthly crafters would love.

The first card is mostly just stamping, with only 2 colours of ink. The die cut circles use the stitched framelits which are always out on my big shot and the dancing snowman is coloured with the marker pens. All finished off with the lovely spotty ribbon.

The second card uses the ice skating snowmen. I have reversed the image which gives a demonstrating point when done in class. I have used a few of the  Blend pens to colour this , good for the background colour as it dries so smooth.

Finally a card for the skilled crafter. Lots of daubing, my favourite technique. I have water coloured the snowmen with an aqua-painter then fussy cut. The white is heat embossed and finished with a die cut in the glimmer paper snowflake.

With my wedding anniversary in 10 days - 36 yrs the sentiment is appropriate. Ahhhhh.
