9. Used some wooden alphabet letters, pressed into a Versamark ink pad and heat embossed with a WOW silver glitter embossing powder.

10. Attached a blue ribbon for the hanging to the back of the wreath, using red super sticky DS tape.

11. Adhered the second circle to cover the ribbon attachment.

12. Adhered the oval to the centre of the wreath using Pinflair 3D glue gel.

Bob bob bobbing along

Morning, another Xmas make today to share.

When the red, red robin comes bob, bob, bobbing along ……… 

Does anyone else remember that song!!! There’s quite a few versions and its been covered by a few of my favs Bing Cosby, Dean Martin and the wonderful Doris Day πŸ™‚

 

 

Step by Step

1. Created a masterboard on A4 white card stock. Used Dylusions paints and a brayer to apply colour.

2. Trimmed master board size, used a square die to cut out the piece for the focal point. Used the remained as the frame for the matting and layering.

3. Used black Archival ink to stamp the “25”, from the Polkadoodles Festive Christmas stamp sets, to create the frame, I’d stamped the “25” onto scrap paper earlier to establish the size of card need for the focal point. Stamped the robin, text and snowflakes, also from the Polkadoodles Festive Christmas stamp sets, with the black Archival ink. Embellished the background with faux stitching using a black Sakura Micron pen.

4. Stamped the robin on white card stock and coloured with Derwent Inktense pencils. Fussy cut out and adhered to the background.

5. Matted and layered the focal point and frame onto black card stock. Adhered to the 8×8″ card blank.

6. Embellished the card blank with faux stitching using a black Sakura Micron pen.

Northern Lights

Afternoon, sharing one of my makes using the Polkadoodles Festive Christmas clear stamps.

Step by Step

1. Cut an oval from white card stock, using Tattered Lace Oval die set.

2. Used Distress Inks and a blending tool to apply 3 colours, pink, turquoise and yellow, to create the background.

3. Used Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool around the edge of the oval. Took the Black Soot in towards the centre fading the colour as it moved closer to the centre.

4. Sprinkled/splashed water onto the background. Allowed the water to penetrate the ink and blotted with kitchen roll.

5. Once the background was completely dry, stamped the Christmas tree and text, from the Polkadoodles Festive Christmas stamp sets, using Versamark and added black glitter embossing powder, I also used an anti-static bag on the background before stamping. Heat set the embossing powder.

6. Used a white Derwent Paint Liner pen to add faux stitching around the edge of the background.

7. Die cut an oval from white card stock and add faux stitching around the edge using a black Sakura Micron pen.

8. Cut an oval card blank from black card stock, embellished with faux stitching using a white Derwent Paint Liner pen.

Managed to get some crafting done, I’ve used one of the new dies from Polkadoodles.

If you’ve not seen the dies from Polkadoodles, I’d definitely recommend them, they cut like a dream and they release the card stock so easily. Not only do they do the job of die cutting brillantly, the prices are fabulous, prices start at just £3.49!!

2. Used stencils and Dylusions paints to add some interest to the background.

3. Used black archival ink and Polkadoodles stamps to create the border on the tag and to add further interest to the background. Coloured the border with a white Derwent Paint Liner pen.

4. Cut the Bubbleicious frames from white card stock. Coloured the fancy oval die cut with Dylusions paints.

5. Stamped the sentiment and butterflies, using Polkadoodles stamp sets and black Archival ink.

6. Cut the flowers and leaves from the Bubbleicious die set from white card stock. Coloured the flowers and leaves with Distress inks and Copic markers.

7. Adhered the fancy oval to the main Bubblecious frame using 3D foam pads.
