Holiday Greetings & Baubles – 2 Cards

I’m sharing two cards today which I have made with a lot of care…I have chosen traditional colours for the background of my first card and soft colours for stamping the background of the second one…it has been very exciting to make so many unique holiday cards this year…

For my first card I die cut the front panel using a stitched rectangle die and then used a smaller rectangle die from the shadow box die set to create a window in the middle of the panel with a stitched effect all around it…I then sponged in some candied apple and lucky clover Distress Oxide inks on this panel..I also splattered some water and gold watercolour on it…
I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment on this panel using white embossing powder and then started on the village scene inside the window..

There is a snow bank die in the shadow box die set which I have used in the window after sponging in cracked pistachio and salty ocean Oxide inks…I then added the coloured in and die cut images from the winter village stamp set and then added a blue panel at the back on which I have used the falling snow die….

I adhered this panel to a plain white card base and then added some white Nuvo drops to embellish it…

I was quite excited once I finished my second card…why?…well,I didn’t muck it up(ha ha) and it turned out exactly as planned…
I started by stamping large baubles from Waffle flower Holiday Labels stamp set on a piece of white die cut panel using Altenew citrus burst and cotton candy dye inks and then stamped the same bauble on a separate piece if cardstock using persian blue ink…I stamped a deer silhouette inside the baubles using mocha and sand dune ink shades..

There were some tiny dots stamps in the WF Holiday Labels stamp set which I used to randomly stamp and fill in some of the background on the white panel using the same inks I used to stamp the baubles..I then adhered this panel to a light pink textured card base..

I die cut the blue bauble I had stamped earlier using a circle die and added a string/ribbon die cut to it and adhered it to the card front using some craft foam underneath…and to finish my card I added some clear star sequins to the blue bauble as a bit of a shiny element in my card…

Altenew Xmas Trees – 3 cards

I’m sharing three cards today which I have made with my favorite stamp and die set by Altenew for this year’s Christmas release…I really like the size of the two trees in this set and once the front panel was ready,I just had to add the tree die cut and my cards were ready…how good is that..??

For my first card I created the background on the front panel using a plaid stencil and black soot Distress ink and splattered some gold paint as well…I added a thin strip of red and gold glitter cardstock on one side and then stamped the sentiment using watermark ink and heat embossed it with gold embossing powder…then using a rectangle cross stitch die to cut out the front panel and adhered it to a plain black card base….

On a separate piece of white cardstock I stamped the large tree using parrot Altenew dye ink and then die cut it with the coordinating die and placed it on the card front using some adhesive foam…I added a die cut gold star at the top of the tree and adhered some gold star sequins to embellish my card..

For my second card I chose a red glitter cardstock front panel and adhered it to a plain white card base….I then stamped the two trees from Altenew Night Before Christmas stamp set on a separate piece of white cardstock using parrot and olive dye ink and the die cut them and placed them onto the card front…
I then die cut snowflakes from white glitter cardstock and adhered it to the card and since the was so much glitter used on this card,I decided not to add any embellishments..

My third card was quite fun to make as I did not use any traditional colours in this card…I first cut the front panel to size from deep blue glitter cardstock and then die cut the snowy background using falling snow die from Avery Elle…I added silver foil paper behind the front layer and adhered this panel to the plain white card base…
On a separate piece of white cardstock,I sponged in some Distress Oxide inks – wilted violet,salty ocean and peacock feather – and then die cut the tree using the larger tree die…I stamped and silver heat embossed the sentiment on the tree and placed it on the card front using some adhesive foam underneath…
I then die cut stars from silver foil cardstock and adhered them to the tree and my card was ready

This is the image provided for the current challenge…I decided to use the three colours – white,orange and brown – as well the underwater theme for my card…

I started by die cutting the front panel using a large stitched rectangle die and then used a stitched rectangle window die to create the window in the middle of this panel…
On a separate piece of white cardstock,I stamped and die cut the fishes and the plant…I also die cut a small rectangular piece and used the snowfall die to create a bubbles kind of pattern in the background…I applied some salty ocean Distress Ink on this panel and spritzed some water on it…I also added a silver foil paper behind it…

Before adhering all the element to the top panel,I stamped the sentiment using Altenew autumn blaze ink and then assembled all the elements on the top panel which I then adhered to a plainw hite card base…
I did not use any embellishments on this card as I wanted to keep it clean and simple,but I did add a bit of shine to the fishes by using my Spectrum Noir glitter pen…
