The image that came to mind when I saw this Cosy Christmas theme was immediately this barn from the retired Christmas Barn stamp set. It shows warmth and is so inviting.
This card started with a piece of the striped Misty Moonlight DSP which I had layered on Basic White. Planning to use it on a project a while back, it didn’t suit but it worked with this one and I was able to add my pieces around it.
I used some Watercolour Pencils to colour areas of the barn so that the beautiful detail of the stamped image could be seen. For the wreath I used the Direct to Stamp colouring technique with Stampin’ Write Markers.
The barn image could be replaced with the Shop the Town stamp set #162068 which coordinates with the Les Shoppes dies #161777. This set is currently on our Last Chance list for $33.60 (was $42).
The trees from the same bundle were layered, so that it looks like they are around the property. I added some scrap Pecan Pie Cardstock pieces which look a bit like a fence and work well with the design. Of course, this card just had to have Linen Thread to make it complete.
I hope you have enjoyed my #nostalgicnovember with a delve into my archives. My blog posts will continue through December (with cards I’m creating this month for this challenge and others). I’ve got loads to share.
Before I share with you my card for the #30DayChristmasCardmakingChallenge, I just want to remind you that today is the last day for my ordering special. Place an order of $150 or more by tonight and you will get a pack of embellishments as a gift from me. It’s a great time to shop with our Last Chance sale and many items being discounted.
For my card today, I have used all new products as the Jolly Words stamp set was the only Elf stamp I had.
I went with a CAS (Clean and Simple) card and really liked how the white space made these cute elves just stand out.
The images were coloured with a combination of Watercolour Pencils and Stampin’ Blends. I fussy cut the sentiment which had been heat embossed and this added some lovely dimension.
This stamp set is on our Last Chance sale and if it’s one you like, then make sure you add it to your Shopping Cart as Last Chance products are only available while supplies last.
I was not only inspired by the colours of Colour Palette #29, I also drew inspiration from the image and created my card using the Abudant Beauty Decorative Masks.
Creating a beautifully blended daisy using these layered masks is so easy. For my petals I used Pumpkin Pie and Wild Wheat to create depth and added some Real Red in the centre.
I wanted some variation on the leaves and adding a bit of Wild Wheat on the tips along with the Mossy Meadow, provided a lovely natural look to them. Once I fussy cut them out, I then blended Mossy Meadow ink all over the entire leaf to diffuse the stark white background.
The Abudant Beauty Decorative Masks are on our Last Chance List and available while supplies last until 3rd January. I’ve got an ordering special for the Great International Craft Show and it’s available for all orders placed with me. When you place an order of $150 or more you will qualify for a free pack of embellishments. This will be valued around $14 and will vary according to stock availability but I assure you it will be some pretty bling!
