I've Been Busy!

It's half term this week, and since I've still got loads of Christmas cards to make, I decided to get stuck in! I've had several sessions of cardmaking, using different techniques.

 For this card, I've used a couple of Chocolate Baroque stamps from a set I bought recently. I stamped the main image in black ink on white card. I then stamped the bauble image on black card using an embossing pad and embossed in white before cutting it out. The background was embossed using a Sizzix folder, and the card finished with some ribbon and a bow.
Similar techniques here - and this time, I've used a different Chocolate Baroque stamp - one of the big, bold backgrounds. I stamped the image in embossing ink on white card, then embossed in clear. Then, I shaded the background using Distress Ink. The background to the sentiment was cut using a Go Kreate die, and the Happy Christmas used a Britannia die. The bauble used two Memory box dies.
And, exactly as above, but with the bauble colours the other way around.

For the next four, I used a set of images and papers from a CDRom from Digital Crafting Essentials magazine. The images I've used are all from the Crafter's Companion Paintbox Poppets range.




I've used the same basic design each time, cutting the front of the card in half, and covering the inside and front with layers of card, mirror board and paper before attaching the matted image to the front and then embellishing. They're really lovely images, and the papers are pretty too.

And finally, a card using an image from the Enchanted Dreams CDRom


I think I've still got another twenty or so to make!
