The Winter Wonderland Has Started!

The snow if falling like crazy, the weather has dropped and Christmas lights are starting to appear on the houses! It's definitely starting to feel like Christmas! Yay! So since it feels like I haven't posted in forever, I have quite a few cards to share today, and since I have so many I'm not going to go into detail in all of them, but I'll still have links to everything down below! 

Here, I stamped the background in versamark ink to get a tone on tone look. I am kind of obsessed with gold embossing powder right now! haha. I used it on this card on the tree and to matte the main panel. 
 This card has a such a different look to it, then my usual Christmas cards, I love it! I also used gold embossing powder on the bench! haha.
 I am absolutely in love with these two cards! The Tim holtz Winter Blueprints stamp set is just amazing!  
 This card has such a light an airy feel to it! Since everything is basically white, the penguin really stands out! It's adorable! The igloo is sprayed with perfect pearls mist! 
 This card is almost too cute for words. If you're a dog lover like I am, you will fall in love with it! The cute little puppy is adorable, I just coloured him in with distress inks!
 This card has some shimmer to it! With silver embossing and glitter and the snowflakes (The blue glitter is the new Distress Glitter from Tim Holtz) it just has a nice winter wonderland feel to it!
 Here is a peek at the inside of that one above! 
 This one is made from the same stamp set has the penguin one. This team I added a blue background. The igloo is covered in stickles this time!

Merry & Bright!

For this card I made a really simple, easy to mass produce, one layer Christmas card. Like this card literally took me like 3 minutes tops. I stamped the ornaments in a three different colours of distress inks (evergreen bough, peacock feather and fired brick) then drew a black line to create the string. I stamped the 'Merry & Bright' sentiment in red vermilion ink from Ranger, added two little rinestones and rounded the corners and I was done! This is probably the most simple card I have ever made!

(Unfortunately, I couldn't find a link to the stamp set I used. It was a My Minds Eyes stamp set, that I think was called '12 Days of Christmas')


Alcohol Resist!

I'm back! I haven't posted anything in what seems like fooooooorever. hahaa. I tried something new today. Didn't quite work out perfectly, but I know what to change next time! So, I attempted an alcohol ink resist technique. It worked, but you need to work in smaller sections, so the ink will come off the embossing cleaner. The other thing, is I think working with blues, and greens would work better because the pinks and yellows left a weird creamy colour on the embossing and it doesn't look very good. Although it didn't turn out really well, I though I would share the basic idea anyway. To finish off the card I created a dimensional banner to go over top. Everything is popped up with foam dots. This is a standard A2 card.
