Peace And Joy

Coming up next week is my last class of 2014 and we are making some one-off, special Christmas cards.

I am totally in love with this first colouring technique using white embossing and Blendabilities markers that is so simple yet so effective.

 Materials used:
  • stamps - Ornamental Pine
  • card - whisper white, mossy meadow
  • other - white embossing powder, heat tool, ovals framelits, Big Shot, dimensionals, Blendabilities (old olive, crumb cake, skin tones), banner punch

Secondly is a card I cased from Debby Hughes with a few minor changes. The delicacy of the doily stamp and vellum poinsettia are just gorgeous - much nicer in real life than in the photo.

Materials used:
  • stamps - Joyful Christmas, Hello Doily, Good Greetings
  • card - crumb cake, white linen (non SU), vellum card
  • other - dimensionals, metallic twine (silver), rhinestones, burlap ribbon

And last but by no means least, we will be making this diorama card which is an adaptation of a gorgeous card made by Linda Higgins, a fellow Aussie demo. I use a blend of white embossing powder and dazzling diamonds (about 50/50) to get a sparkle on the "snow covered" trees.

 Materials used:
  • stamps - Holiday Home, Lovely as a Tree, French Foliage (retired)
  • card - night of navy, silver glitter, whisper white, white glitter
  • other - Holiday Home framelits, Big Shot, dimensionals, Blendabilities (night of navy, daffodil delight), white embossing powder/dazzling diamonds mix, heat tool, deco label framelits

Linda has a video tutorial on her blog for making this card, you can see it and her original card by clicking on the link HERE.

Well, that's it for this year! I do hope you've enjoyed popping in every now and then for some ideas or inspiration and that you'll return in 2015. Have a wonderful holiday season full of love, joy and peace and take care on the roads. Thanks to all my loyal followers and an especially big THANK YOU to those of you who leave comments, I really love to read them and hear what you think.

Thanks for stopping by.

Brilliant cards Kerry. I know if my husband was still alive he'd insist on your Ornamental Pine card being this years card. Beautiful and soothing in it's composition and color scheme. Thank you for sharing the tutorial link for the Diorama card too. Can't wait to give that a try.
