Woodland Trees


I chose to keep this card clean and simple.  I started with a white card base and rounded the edges.  I added another layer of red card stock which I covered with two patterned paper which I stitched together before adhering to the base.  I printed out the digital stamp and coloured it with Lyra artist pencils and Sansodor.  I added glitter to the snow on the ground and punched some circles from red metallic card stock to cover the ornaments on the tree.  I matted this with more red card stock, stitched around it and adhered it  to the patterned paper using foam adhesive.  I wrapped these layers with string that I glittered using white paint as my 'glue'.  I added a button to the string and tied the ends in a bow.  Next I cut decorative corner from metallic red card stock using a Spellbinders Parisian Accents die which I adhered under the image in the top left hand corner.  I printed out the Happy Holidays Sentiment and cut it out using a Spellbinders Labels 17 die and cut it in half inked the edges green and added some metallic card stock circles before  tucking it under the image.

Vintage Postcard


I started by printing out some Kindred Creations digital papers Rainbow stripes and Damask.  I distressed them and layered them and sewed them together.  I printed out the postcard in green, stamp in red and Birdies Housework.  I matted the postcard with red card stock and stitched the layers together.  I added the coloured birdy tot he top left hand corner and the postage stamp ion the top right hand corner using foam adhesive.  I then wrapped the base with gold ribbon then mounted the postcard slightly angled on top.  I then tied a bow using the bow easy from the same ribbon adhered it to the bottom left hand corner, added two red roses, two leaves and a bunch of die cuts cut using the Martha Stewart twig punch.  Lastly I added some gold liquid pearls along the bottom of the postcard.

Irish Blessing

I printed the sun cloud digi out several times on white and yellow card stock, as well as with the sentiment onto blue inked card stock.  I cut the clouds out twice and the sun once, and edged all the pieces including the stamped base with clear stickles before layering them with foam adhesive.  I layered the floral papers from Kindred Creations and stitched around them before adhering the digital images which was also stitched.  Lastly I finished off the card with a bow tied using the bow easy and a few Q&Co pearls.
