Video: Stencilled/Ink Blended Christmas Cards

Hi there! I hope you're having a great week so far.

I'm popping in to share 4 Christmas Cards with you today.

I have been inspired by all the ink blending I've been seeing around blogland (particularly from Yana Smakula)

and Debby Hughes' recent stencilled tree card inspired me to combine the two.

Pink tree CU

I SOOOO enjoyed ink blending again with the original Distress Inks - it's been toooo long since I've played with them and I was reminded

that it's one of my favourite things to do when making cards :0)

If you'd like to see the process (and all four cards) please enjoy the video below or in HD on my YouTube Channel -

 Not long now and It's Friday! I hope you have a lovely weekend planned.

See you again soon...


Newton's Nook Evergreens Stencil

Happy Monday peeps! I hope you had an awesome weekend.

Popping in this morning to share another Christmas Card - I am enjoying making them so. much! This time I'm playing with a sweet Newton's Nook Stencil...

Rainbow Trees main

As soon as I saw this stencil I knew I could make some CAS Christmas cards and I knew I'd be rainbowing that tree without doubt ha ha.

I have blended with Ranger Distress Oxide Inks here (colours linked below).

I added "snow" with Nuvo Moonstone Glimmer paste - leaving the tree stencil in place and placing a polka dot stencil over the top -

Rainbow Trees CULOVE that fabulous sparkle :0)

I hope you have a fantastic week and manage to fit in some therapeutic crafty time here and there.

See you again soon...
