Christmas Card Club #13
Unfortunately, I don't have any stamps or dies that fit the theme, so I've gone back to a Challenge I missed whilst on holiday. That is Christmas Wreaths, which was Ritas choice back in April.
The first two cards use a Penny Black stamp, called Adornment. The first is stamped in Encore Metallic Green pigment ink, and then heat set with Stampendous Metallic Green embossing powder.
The stitched circle dies were bought from The Works.
I added a few acrylic gems to give a bit of sparkle.
The embossing folder used is a Cuttlebug one, and I accidentally put my cardstock in upside down, so it's actually debossed!
This time stamped in Silver Encore pigment ink, and heat set with silver detail powder. Red gems in assorted sizes gives this one it's bling.
The embossing folder is from Craft Concepts.
For the next two I built a wreath using a die from Sue Wilson, called Twig Wreath as a base, and then some holly twigs cut with the Tim Holtz Christmas Mixed Media die, and the Winter Greens die set. I've added some red gems for berries, and a bow at the top. I have no idea where the tiny Poinsettia die cut is from, I rather think someone must have gifted it to me. I had 2, in different sizes, along with some tiny deer. If anyone knows what the die is, I'd love to know. I rather think the sentiment die cut was gifted too, as I don't have a die like that.
The embossing folder is by Dovecraft.
The background is a folder that I think was a magazine freebie, as it has no info on it.
The sentiment is also from an embossing folder by Crafts Too, and has 6 sentiments strips on it.
The Sue Wilson twig wreath die cut, along with an assortment of foliage.
Three of the Penny Black stamped images, I haven't done the copper one yet.
Some embossed backgrounds I made up, you can see the Crafts Too one 2nd from the right.
