Hello and good morning - well I've made it an eight week half term - Halloween Disco later today for the "little ones" then half terms beckons for me...and chill.
I am hoping to have loads of crafting time over the week to come - have some newbies to play with from Little Claire - ssh unable to share as yet but they are as lovely and gorgeous as ever and not Christmas...
On with today's make - Three Sparkly Snowmen - yes they are bright and cheery - not quite ready to think cold and dark....they really are a happy and vibrant trio. So on with today's recipe:
148mm x 148mm white base card LC
Dark metallic grey card for matting and layering
Mementos black ink pad
Pro Markers: moss green, lime green, poppy, cool grey 1 and 4 and pastel blue
Red 10mm satin edge organza ribbon
Black adhesive pearls, fine white glitter and lime brad.
Stamp image as shown onto white stamping card and trim to 10cm x 10cm. Stamp Happy Christmas onto small individual punched tags. Outline all with lime green promarker.
Matt red snowfall paper 138mm x 138mm and stamped image onto grey metallic card 142mm x 142mm and 105mm x 105mm
Create a triple bow using organza ribbon and fasten around the matted backing papers.
Adhere stamped matted image as shown using 3D foam pads to add dimension. Fix tag sentiments using small brad.
Colour image using promarkers.
Carefully shade round stamped images with blue pastel promarker – this adds dimension.
Add tiny black crystals and fine glitter to accent.
Fix card topper to base card using double sided tape.
Hope you have enjoyed by cheerful make. Cheerio from me for today xxGaynor
