Santa And His Reindeers – 3 Cards

It’s the 23rd of December…my girls used to call it Christmas Eve Eve when they were little…ha ha…I think right now all they want to do is open up their prezzies ASAP…(don’t we all!!)…the cards I’m sharing today have been made using the WPlus9 Santa’s Reindeer stamp and die set…this set was released last year but I wasn’t able to get it then…but I knew I was getting it for this year’s cards for sure..

For my first card I die cut the front panel from white cardstock using a stitched rectangle die and then die cut two windows on it using dies from the Lawn Fawn Shadow Box die set…these dies give a stitched detail on the outside of the die cut section…
On the rectangle shaped window I added a panel on which I had sponged in some salty ocean Distress ink and then used the Avery Elle snowfall background die…I adhered this panel to a white card base and then added the coloured in and die cut Santa,Chimney and Reindeer images…
I stamped the ‘Merry Xmas’ sentiment using red ink inside the oval window and adhered some tiny red sequins to embellish my card..

I tried to create a night sky scene for the background of my second card using Distress Oxide inks…I have used the shades fossilized amber, salty ocean, wilted violet and black soot and then splattered some water as well as white gold watercolour on it…once dry,I die cut this panel to size using  a dotted rectangle die…

I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment using white embossing powder and then adhered it to a white card base…and finally I adhered the watercoloured and die cut images on my card…and finally to embellish it I have used silver star sequins…

Now my third card went exactly to plan so I was really happy….I die cut a panel from white cardstock using one of the Kat’s Scrappiness Postage Stamp Edge dies…I then sponged in some salty ocean and squeezed lemonade Distress Inks and sprayed quite a lot of water on top…
Once dry,I adhered this panel onto a deep red cardstock card base and then added all the die cut images to it…I have used some sparling clear eqions in various sizes to embellish my card…

Freezy Fellas – Three Cards

Today I am sharing three cards with you….and all three have the very cute snowmen from the Paper Smooches stamp set called Freezy Fellas…I have really enjoyed making these cards and have made a lot more using this set and that’s because these snowmen didn’t need to be coloured in – except their accessories and noses…

I stamped and coloured in the moose(from Paper Smooches Chubby Chum Pals set) on the front panel and masked it before creating the background for my card…I  used the following Distress inks for it – squeezed lemonade, blueprint sketch, wilted violet and black soot and addded some white paint splatters as well…I adhered a die cut white glitter panel to the base of this panel using the hillside border die and then die cut it using a dotted rectangle die and adhered it to a white card base..

I added the three snowmen to create the scene and stamped the sentiment just above the moose..I also adhered a holly leaf and berries die cut image at the top right of my card…to embellish the card,I used a die cut red heart as well as some clear confetti sequins…

My second card was much quicker than the first card…I used the Altenew graffiti stencil and salty ocean Distress Ink to print the pattern on the front panel and then stamped the sentiment using crimson crisp dye ink…I stamped a lot of snowflakes on this panel and then adhered it to the card base…
I stamped,coloured in and die cut the snowman and the holly leaf bunches and adhered them to my card and finally to embellish my card I have used tiny blue rhinestones in the middle of all the snowflakes

Now on my third card I decided not to create a background with inks but a background with a die….so I cut out the front panel from gold glitter cardstock and die cut a section of it using the snowfall die from MFT and adhered it to the white card base..
I stamped,coloured in and die cut the snowman and holly leaves and adhered them to the card front and then die cut the word ‘merry’ from a separate piece of cardstock on which I had sponged in some salty ocean Distress Oxide ink and splattered with water…I  die cut the same alphabets from light blue craft foam and layered them before adhering to the card…I stamped the banner ‘christmas’ stamp with salty ocean ink as well and cut it out and adhered it under the word ‘merry’ and my card was ready..
