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

Thank You Feathers Card For Time Out Challenge #92

There is a new ‘inspired by words’ challenge at the Time Out Challenges Blog and I was really inspired by guest designer Carol’s card for this challenge…I also wanted to try out the Embossed Impressions technique as shown by Jennifer McGuire in one of her tutorials recently…

I started by embossing two of the feather dies from Wplus9 Fanciful Feathers Die set using watermark ink onto a watercolour cardstock front panel and then quickly heat embossing those with gold embossing powder…I then used my Crayola Fine Line Markers and a waterbrush to colour them in…

Once dry,I masked these feathers and then splattered a bit of colour and some gold paint on the front panel…to use the same colours for the splatters,I simply scribbled the same crayola markers I coloured in the feathers with,on an acrylic block and mixed them with a ┬ábit of water…

I then die cut a feather from gold foil cardstock and adhered it to the panel before adding this panel to a plain white card base…I die cut the word Thank you from some coloured glitter cardstock and layered it with a white die cut before adhering them onto the card front…
I also adhered a thin strip of the same glitter cardstock on one side of the front panel…

Die Cut Inlay Background Card

I think this die cut inlay background technique has got to be the easiest one yet….I have followed the tutorial by Jennifer McGuire to create the background for this card….Also,my younger daughter coloured in the flowers image using watercolour pencils and then some water and a fine paint brush and it turned out really nice so I asked her if I could use it on my card…so she cut it out and gave it to me….

The card base is plain black and the top layer is made from glitter cardstock on which I have used a flourish die to create the inlay die cut effect…it is impossible to see in the picture but I have used craft foam under the top layer….
I then stamped,coloured in and cut out the little glass vase image and placed it on the card as well as the flowers…I stamped the sentiment on a small black banner using versamark ink and heat embossed it using white embossing powder…I have used copper colour sequins to embellish the card…
Here’s a close up of my card…I think my daughter did a great job with the colouring…
