A couple of favourites.

Isn't it funny that out of all the many cards I have designed over the past few months for Christmas, there are just a few that stand out? These are some of my favourites this season.

I love the new design palette by Pion Design. These are plain companion cardstock to their paper ranges and they are white core. So I embossed a piece with a snowflake embossing folder.

Then I sanded the surface to reveal the pattern in white.

I've added a panel with a die cut snowflake design which has been stuck onto a strip of double sided adhesive and the gaps filled in with glitter.
Here's the finished card.

This one is kind of similar: The snowflake die cut panel has been in-filled with pearl mica flakes ( gorgeous). The embossed panel has a pine sprig design on mica pearl paper but this time I added a stamped message to the centre panel.
I really like these neutral and grey schemes.

Hope you can see the beautiful pearl mica here.

The next card has a stamped background, stamped in Distress Moss Green. Then that has been embossed with "Twiggy" and sanded. You need to choose the designs carefully for this technique, or they can end up looking a bit busy or confused, so experiment a bit.
A die cut border in silver mirri is attached to the right hand side and a ribbon and charm to finish.

There will be a variety of projects such as off the page items, home decor, mini books, storage solutions - lots of variety and lots of techniques.

Stamped metallic baubles.

The stamps used here are all from a set of Viva clear stamps which are incredible value at only £4.35 per set and there are lot of stamps in a set.
The holly flourish and the Merry Christmas have been stamped in Forest Moss Distress ink.
The baubles were stamped in different metallic Encore inks, one Champagne, one Gold and one Silver. These have been cut out and the edges inked with the same ink and a piece of cut'n'dry foam. The edges of the die cut message panel have also been inked with the Encore ink. The baubles are hung on tiny weeny beaded string.

Baubles to You!

A simple peel off sticker can still make an attractive card if you take some time to pair it carefully with nice products and a bit of technique.

The peel offs were applied to cream linen card and then cut out. They were then applied to gold glitter card and this panel was mounted onto the card with foam pads. A funky message finishes it off.
All the peel offs are supplied by Woodware craft collection.
