My last two samples for Karen

The first card, is a church scene that I stamped and coloured with my copic pens after which I have litterally covered the snow with flowersoft to give it dimension, and on the windows and star I have used some glossy accents. The image was then cut out using the Nestabilitie Die No.8 and I created the mount with the same die but I drew around the outer edge then cut it out. The sentiment is yet another of the stamps from Karen of Crafty Ideas by Kaz, Ive also cut it out with the smaller die in the same way as the main image.
The base card is a 7"x 7" white card with a first layer of red card with just one layer of paper from the new Papermania pad "Classic Christmas", Ive used a snowflake corner punch then stuck it to the red card, then around the middle Ive wrapped a wide piece of ribbon which has poinsetta's and holly leaves and berries on it. On top of this Ive stuck my image at the top and my sentiment underneath it in the centre.
And this is the second one, its a large snowman playing snow football, Ive stamped him onto smooth white card and then coloured his hat and scarf with a red promarker pen (their red is a better colour) then used lots of glitter all over him, his hat turnup and bobble and along the ground, then cut him out with my Nestabilitie Die No.1 then like my last card I drew around the die to create the mount which I then cut it out by hand. Again the senitment is one of Karens from the stamp sets.
The base card is again 7"x 7" white card with a first layer of red card with one of the papers from the new Dovecraft "Jolly Happy Christmas" paper pack, then around the middle I used a red ribbon with gold holly leaves and berries on it, on top of this Ive positioned my mounted image then stuck the sentiment below it in the centre.
To finish of Ive created three snowflakes with the snowflake punches from Martha Stewart, then before sticking them one on top of the other, Ive stuck some crushed glass glitter on the ends and then positioned them down the left hand side of the card, and the last thing is the snowman button at the bottom on the right.
I do so hope you will pop across and see these new stamps sets on Karens website, she really has a fantastic shop and her p&p is free and you can rely on her getting your goodies to you speedly.

They're both fabulous. I love the dimension you gave the snow - it can be so hard to 'do' snow well, and you've definitely succeeded here.

Heather said...

Oh how I long for a sparkly snowy cold Christmas. That'll never happen though :/ I remember one of my first White Christmases as a child. So much magic and beauty in just looking out the window looking at the beauty God created on his sons birthday.

Gorgeous cards! thanks for sharing.
