Merry Christmas 2014

 Wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! 

The last month has gone by so fast and been so busy! Packing for the big move, work trips, training and now the holidays. 
I will try to get back to the blog once I get moved (mid January.) Then I will do a new craft room tour in the new space 

In the mean time, here is the card that I made specially for my friend - which has now been hand delivered. We both love Charlie Brown Christmas special, so this card was inspired by that. I used the LawnFawn's Deck the Halls branch and curved it on the stamp block to look like the curved tree. I punched out a red circle from card stock, covered it in versa mark and 2 layers of ultra thick embossing powder. To get the effects of the snow I used the Be Creative tape, cut my snow bank shape then covered with Glitter Ritz ultra fine white glitter. Lastly, before assembling the card I used the snowflakes and created some tone on tone patterned paper with fine clear embossing powder.  

The card was finished with a sentiment from Simon says stamp. And a really sappy message inside. She loved the card. 

I had also made a "card army" with Stephanie Barnards flip it dies for some coworkers. Here's a sample of them as I was choosing the image to go with each card. 

There is a variety of stamps used from clearly besotted, Stamps of life, and Simon says stamp.  They have been coloured with copics, prisma colour pencils and peerless water colors - and a touch of wink of Stella!
