Define Good!

Define Good!



Morning! I hope that you all had a good Bank Holiday weekend. After all the dry weather, it rained on Monday, but my garden was so grateful!! And it gave me the perfect excuse to stay in and craft, not that I need an excuse! I like to get ahead with my Christmas cards – there’s nothing worse than rushing in November and December, so I make Christmas cards all year long. Today, I’ve got one card to share and it’s a bit quirky.



I used the wonderful Stamping Bella Christmas Tree Oddball stamps for the card. I’ve kept the card simple to focus on the fabulous image. I used my stamp positioner to stamp her in pale grey ink. I removed the card from the positioner and coloured her with Copic markers. I replaced the coloured image, stamped with Versafine black ink and heat embossed with clear powder. This technique is one of my favourite ways to get a beautifully crisp image. I fussy cut the image and then added sparkle to all the baubles with coloured glitter pens. I also used a clear aqua shimmer brush to add sparkle to the star and her parcels. I placed three thin strips of adhesive tape along the bottom of the card and sprinkled clear glitter over them and burnished it in place. I stamped the sentiment from the stamp set in black. I used dimensional pads to adhere the focal image in place.



On the inside, I cut a piece of white card slightly smaller than the A2 (US size) card. I stamped a fun Christmas greeting from Colorado Craft Company’s Big & Bold Holly & Berries stamp set in the centre in black. I edged the piece with a green marker and adhered it flat to the card.


That’s all from me today – see you again next week.
