Peace & Joy

 A challenge a little out of my comfort zone - Black, White & Gold - especially for a Christmas card. Using my NBUS Paper Rose Little Angel Builder die & Delicata Gold refill ink. I painted it on the wings & halo, and splattered on the black background.

The Delicata Gold gives the perfect shine.

Monochrome Ornaments

 My friend lent me her set of Pinkfresh Studio Ornaments - simply wonderful that it has the accompanying stencil and die. I decided to go with a monochrome gold/creme set. I used Platinum embossing on cream card, and stencilled in shades of cream/gold adding a little Delicata Gold here and there.

As wonderful as it would be to put them all on one card, I decided to see how many cards I could get out with one set of ornaments.  Turns out I got 5! Yippee!

For the first design, I used 3 ornaments on the card varying the shapes and sizes to get a good balance. I can't remember who gave the great tip of scoring the edges of your top card but thank you. A extra touch for a CAS card.

I also painted in parts with Delicata gold refill ink.

For the second design I used the positive and negative dies of an arch.

For the negative cut, I embossed the card with a linen embossing folder to give a little texture.

For the last lonely ornament, I was wondering how I could use it. Such a particular shape and not that big.  But then I remembered this wonderul star embossing folder! Gives it that extra impact.  And I just love these dies of tag/labels that also have a matching embossing folder to give them extra detail.

Noel Robin

When I spotted the Penny Black Immense Noel, I knew it would be perfect to put a focal image in the "O". This is my first card with it. I used the little robin from the Jolly Critters.

I made a second one and added some sparkle "snow" to the top of the Noel.

Which do you prefer?

Musical Birthday Wishes

What card do you make when your friend is an incredible musician and loves hydrangeas? One with blooms and notes!

My NBUS music set from The Greetery ... it normally has Christmas Theme songs, but I found a skinny birthday wish that I could bend to follow the staff lines. The flowers are from the Pinkfresh Studio Roses & Hydrangea Set.

Two for 1 Rainbow Blending

I love rainbow colours ! Using the negative flower die cut as a stencil, I ink blended everything which means I got a twofer!

Here is the negative cut. I added enamel accents to the flower centres to match the colours in that area.

I used white enamel dots for the rainbow flowers.
